Singular “You”

Singular “You”

I found this fascinating passage written a few hundred years ago, with concerns about singular “you” (instead of “thou”). Language changed, and now “you” is formally accepted as both singular and plural.

(I use singular “they” in rulebooks: it’s how many people speak, it’s gender neutral, and I believe it will keep gaining formal acceptance.)

Boston 1775

Boston 1775

Garrett (my oldest son) and I put together a large map of 1775 Boston for his presentation at school this week (with help from FedEx Office, Wikipedia, and Photoshop). “It is June 1775,” he begins. “We’ve been under siege here in Boston for two months.”

I had a blast from the past when someone starred this tweet from 3½ years ago:

I read all my Instapaper list on my SFO->MCO flight today. Based on recommendations from friends, I’m finally going to give @Pocket a try.

I reached “Instapaper Zero” that day and switched to Pocket. I still add to or read from Pocket every day.I’m currently at “Pocket 391″, but I’m actively working on it with a burn-down chart now.

The Game

The Game

I’ve really been enjoying playing the solo/coöperative game The Game over the last few weeks — especially with Beth Sobel’s beautiful Textile reskin. I finally played all 98 cards and won this morning!
