It's even worse than it appears.

Over the past couple of days I binged season 1 of The Chair on Netflix. I liked it. It's quick, only about three hours. It's a Sorkin-like show, like The West Wing or The Newsroom, fast dialog. Fun and really pulls on the heartstrings. There's cute smart little girl, and a timely plot of a second-tier Ivy League school that reminded me that campuses can be interesting places to hang out. I gave it a 4 of 5 on BingeWorthy. #
With all the political spam I get, why didn't I get one email in advance of this event so I could help spread the world, and participate. Communication. It can't just be about raising money.#
  • Still the most annoying thing is when you switch into Twitter you get about 1/2 second to scan what's there, enough time for pictures to register, and boom it refreshes with new content. #
  • This also has another painful side-effect, if you're watching a video, it'll just refresh in the middle of it. I was intently listening to the chairman of the Fed the other day, and then part of a Grateful Dead concert, when Twitter decided enough! #

  • No soup for you! #

    • It does something simply that previously would have been complicated.#
    • It's as simple as possible.#
    • It can't be simplified further. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
