A Brief Ode to Stickies

Wednesday, Apr 14, 2021

After all these years, I can’t believe Stickies is still available on the Mac. I remember coming across an article in the past about “persistent”, system-wide stickies where you could put a “note” on, say, a PDF document on your iPad, and that “note” would stick with the PDF, whether you opened it on your iPhone or on the Mac. This is how I use real stickies and I wish Stickies could do that sticky sort of thing.

Some of My Favourite Tech Photography From Winter 2020

I haven’t been too consistent in publishing links to my work across the internet here on The Newsprint. Of course, I’m still writing and shooting photos over at The Sweet Setup, and I hope to for the foreseeable future.

The camera has been largely in hibernation throughout 2020, but it did succeed in capturing at least a few of my favourite technology-related photos from the last few years.

For update to "Ulysses, Bear, or Apple Notes? A Comparison of the Best Note-Taking, Writing, and Research Apps".
For "The Best iPhone Home Screen Widgets For iOS 14".

I clearly had a thing for Craft over the winter. (I’m not using Craft anymore, unfortunately. It’s still great for collaboration, but I’ve since returned to Ulysses and find myself wondering why I ever left.)

"I declare this thing open, whatever it is." - On a visit to Canada in 1969.

“Whatever it is."
