• In elections a few years from now, I’m afraid we’re going to vote for a person (or a party) that can write the “desired” prompts to the AI, asking it to suggest policies to achieve specific outcomes (fiscal, international policy, security, education etc). “Vote for me to ask AI this question!”

  • This Valentine’s Day, show your love to your musical instrument 🎷 🎸 🥁, by playing them this song: You Make Me Smile: open.spotify.com/playlist/…

  • We all know the proverb, “Tell me who your friends are and I will tell you who you are”. I think it needs a 21st century update of “Tell me who you follow on social media and I will tell you who you are”.

  • 🎵🚨 Just another reminder that last week I’ve released a new rock song of which I’m very proud.

    Take a listen and use the opportunity to follow my account, too, where you listen. Spread the word, too. Thank you.

    1. Songs you select one by one
    2. Albums
    3. Personal playlists
    4. Curated or someone else’s playlists
    5. Radio (online)
    6. Radio (like in a car)
  • If you read books, do: 1. 📖 read one book start to finish then move to the next one 2. 📚 read a few books in parallel?

    It happens to me that I read a few in parallel. But only one of these would be a fiction. Granted, I don’t read much fiction in general.

  • Jack Stratton (Vulf), an innovative musician, talks about the business of music streaming. And wants Apple to win it back from Spotify through innovation in a business model. Good arguments and great presentation with data and humour. www.youtube.com/watch

  • 🚨 And the new single is out today. Got some positive feedback on it. It’s a light rock kind of tune. 🎸 Musicians will appreciate the lyrics, in particular. Links to listen here: distrokid.com/hyperfoll…

  • I saved so much money by not preordering Apple’s Vision Pro today that maybe I just need to buy another guitar. 🎸

  • My new single, a Beatlesque, jazz/rocky “You Make Me Smile”, is gonna be out on streaming soon (officially tomorrow). Video is going to be premiered tomorrow morning. Already available on Bandcamp. Links are here: distrokid.com/hyperfoll…

  • The macOS App Icon Book my Michael Flarup is here! As a long-time Mac-head, I’m even more excited about this one than the iOS one, with the longer history and variety of macOS icons. Also, Cashculator’s icon makes an appearance there, in the “yellow” page.

  • On Jan 19, I’m releasing my new song, “You Make Me Smile”. This is a sneak peak: guitar solo playthrough. It’s a light, positive song, with some unexpected ending. If you want early access to the song and stay up to date with my music activities, join my newsletter at music.gorban.org.

  • I don’t know why but taking photos with Hipstamatic is so much fun. It’s somehow inspiring. It’s also quite easy to get artistic-looking results with it, which may be the main reason behind the feeling it creates. These are just a couple of latest ones.

  • You had one job.

  • The launch of our Jira app is now live on ProductHunt: Check out the launch of Next Decision for Jira: Backlog Prioritization making only “this or that” decisions www.producthunt.com/posts/nex…

  • I’m excited to share a project I’m involved with, launching tomorrow on ProductHunt. It’s a Jira app to improve the issue prioritization process, especially in a team session. Sounds intriguing? Get notified of the launch: www.producthunt.com/products/…

  • Gotta check out this new web browser. I heard it’s gonna rule.

  • I’m finally close to generating my twisted vision of a “rubber duck programming” picture. DALL·E 3 is getting close to allowing this as I intended compared to my previous attempts.

  • My wife was worried: she was looking for her birth certificate and couldn’t find it. I calmed her down by reassuring her that she was indeed born.

  • My daughter (looking sideways at me with some sly worry in her eyes ): Do you know what’s the limit of own tabs in Safari on iOS?

    Me: No

    D: 500 (continues looking at me with the suppressed nervous smile)

    Me: 🙄

    I don’t know how she manages to manage this. But then again, her room is a mess, too.

  • One of my favourite internet radio stations is PRM. The app used is Eter Radio. Works on all Apple devices, including CarPlay, as you can see.
