  1. The Fall of the Creative Class

    On how Richard Florida’s creative class theory doesn’t show causality. Worth reading Florida’s and then Bures’ follow-ups. (via @timoarnall)

    @yoz @danhon You’re not in the shower. So put on some clothes and behave like an Englishman! Maybe that flowery number with the scoop neck?

    @danhon @yoz He could at least put a robe on.

    Try and remember where I was with this project three weeks ago vs keep faffing until the end of the day. Tricky.

    @paulpod You should install Edblock Plus.

    @felix_cohen (5GB of that is only local mailboxes, which might help - less IMAP back and forth?)

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @felix_cohen I have about 9GB of mail across my accounts, and Mail.app seems fine on this old MacBook. Do you have a lot more?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @felix_cohen It’s just in local (“On My Mac”) folders, rather than in an IMAP account. Still in Mail.app.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    Spent an hour moving some old email offline. Saved myself $12/year in mail hosting costs. Apparently need to rethink how I prioritise tasks.
