# Since creating the /now page its last entry has been "learning by doing" but there's not been much of that going on here recently.

I've reached a point where I'm pretty happy with how the blog looks and works so haven't felt the need to make many changes.

Something can't always be in development, right?

I've put my plans to build an integrated RSS reader on hold for the time being. It would be nice to have but, with the other workflows I already have in place, I don't think the amount of work (read trial and error and breaking things) would currently be worth the utility it would provide.

Still, learning by doing doesn't always have to relate to the blog and code; making the move to Mac, and everything that entails, definitely falls into this category.

Whatever form it takes learning is something I now continually strive for - becoming mentally stagnant is not an option, especially at my age.

# I may no longer use Twitter as a social network but it is still the best place to get real time news - especially locally.

Take this morning for example. I got stuck in traffic on the way to work so jumped on Twitter to search for the reason (no, I wasn't driving) and immediately found out that there was a lorry fire about a mile up the road before the news hit traditional media.

# Liked: Seth's Blog: Toward dumber...

"Don't confuse dumber with simpler. Simpler removes the unnecessary and creates a better outcome as a result. But dumber does little but create noise."

# No work now for 10 days! How good does that sound?

We're going to be spending a few days away to have a break and recharge so I don't know how that'll affect my posting. It's more than likely there won't be a microcast episode.
