November 9th will always be a special day. 22 years ago I started writing on my personal blog. I have not always been equally active on jeroensangers.com, but it will always be my digital home.

Once in a while, I rotate the OS language of my devices between Dutch, Spanish, Catalan and English. It is amazing how simply organizing yourself in another language completely changes your perspective on the work to be done.

Since I’m reinstalling my main computer, today I did my tasks using almost exclusively my iPad and iPhone.

It went way better than I expected, though there are some little things, such as text snippets, that I have to fix if I want to use my mobile devices more often for work.

I’ve been wanting to up mu meditation practice for a while now. Today I started Sam Harris’ 50 day training course Waking Up, since I’ve heard many good things about it.

The first session was—as expected—a very basic 5–minute breathing mindfulness exercise. I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s session…

🤔 I’m having mixed feelings on WordPress.

On one side, the platform is hopelessly bloated, and on the other side, anytime I want to change something on my site I need “Yet Another Plugin”, since WordPress doesn’t do it out of the box.

Since VideoDrive doesn’t work on macOS Catalina (and I don’t see an update coming soon), I decides to give iFlicks a try for importing video files in the TV app.

So far I like it very much, especially the rules engine for customising and fixing meta data errors.

En este día hace tres años tuvo una videollamada que me cambió la vida. Era la primera conversación sobre lo que ahora es KENSO.

No teníamos ningún plan en concreto, no había propósito. Sólo había una conexión personal, muchas ganas de trabajar juntos y unos valores compartidos.

Today I made a huge mistake. When reading articles on several newspapers1 on the current events in Catalonia I made the humongous error to browse through the comments left by other reader. I instantly lost all hope for humanity.

Really, why do newspapers have comments at all? Don’t they feel responsable for their sites?

  1. I sometimes have the impression that I am the only person making the effort to always read articles published on both sides of the political spectrum ↩︎
