Aeropress Go looks like something I'll be getting. https://dailycoffeenews.com/2019/03/15/aeropress-on-the-move-with-the-forthcoming-aeropress-go/
I was also surprised by Shawn Blanc’s switch to an unhipster drip machine. But have to agree with this post. I probably can’t tell the taste difference either, but the ritual is what makes it fun. https://quanttype.net/posts/2019-03-06-handbrewing-coffee.html
Visited my favorite Costa Rican coffee toaster today. Hacienda Real peaberry has been the daily bean on the AeroPress since I tried it and was curious of their operation. It’s literally a micro toaster (3 room house). They ship to the US/Canada if anyone wants to try. http://www.goldenbean.net/

Since December I’ve been working very hard on measuring developer output, software CapEx, and organization level indicators. All with as little overheard to devs that doesn’t improve PMO flows. This comment on HN is an amazingly distilled version of many of my learnings. https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=19191549
Domain names are like battery packs, make it cheap enough and I can always self-justify one. Luckily rmateu.dev or 5typos.dev doesn’t sound that interesting. https://domains.google/tld/dev/
Ordering coffee at 130 degrees in Starbucks is the hipster idiom that I’m least ashamed to say out lout. Thank you André Hess for all the hipster-millennial wisdom. https://www.instagram.com/betogess/
weird, @help the quoted md displays correctly on the Posts page, but it doesn’t seem to be parsed on the feed/app/blog http://roberto.mateu.me/2019/02/07/dave-winer-if.html
