I'm going to throw a "I agree" with Merlin about Dashboard. Those damn widgets consume a disproportionate amount of resources compared with their usefulness. I know a lot of things are moving toward web apps (I consider widgets as web apps), but I don't find these dashboard widgets useful. Applications on the web are useful when and only when, in my opinion, when they do something a desktop app can't. The best example of this is Facebook, which is nailing social networking.

While I'm very pleased we're getting a new Finder, the biggest news of the day is Safari for Windows. I feel like the familiar world of web browsers on Windows has been blown apart. If I was working at Opera, I would have not been happy. Most of the blogs I've been reading are giving Safari a very hard time, but I think instead they have to just give it time. Competition never hurt, and webkit is still open source.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
