Learning about habit stacking has been a surprisingly powerful tool. It’s not a super power – because it’s not painless to use. But it’s impressive to see a mind hack that does consistently show results. Highly recommend Atomic Habits by James Clear https://jamesclear.com/atomic-habits
Enjoyed First Man 📺. The claustrophobic scenes from inside the ships were enlightening. Any movie based on a book that makes me want to read the book gets extra points from me. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=PSoRx87OO6k

Microsoft confirms Edge is moving to Chromium sometime next year. I understand the reasoning and business case, but the consolidation of browser engines is not great for the web. https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2018/12/06/microsoft-edge-making-the-web-better-through-more-open-source-collaboration/
The Verge’s Better Worlds: a science fiction project about hope sounds – and looks – like a breath of fresh air. Looking forward to it. https://www.theverge.com/2018/12/5/18055980/better-worlds-science-fiction-short-stories-video
