This came out a little while back, but it's a beautiful piece by Evan Schell:
I love ocean photography and it has been awesome to watch Ryan Pernofski do this thing:
- This is important work for Bob, Debs, Love Does & Jeremy, Matt, Preemptive Love Coalition. Learn about it and support:
As Blinksale continues, I am interested what David Heinemeier Hansson has to say as the founder of Ruby on Rails, the framework that Blinksale is built on. Tim Ferriss' podcast with DHH is a great way to get to know his work.
This documentary, "I Saw The Light," will be very interesting.
I get weary of tech products, but this Eclipse looks pretty sharp.
Joseph is killing it:
- Now that the Cavs and the Cubs have both won championships, the focus has shifted to San Diego as America's saddest sports city.
Wow, what a way for Derek Jeter to go out at Yankee Stadium. That was special, and I am glad for him.
Tim Keller is always nailing it:
It is not the strength of your faith but the object of your faith that actually saves you.
- Since seeing him live last week, I've been on a huge Blake Mills kick. If you're new to Blake Mills, you'll love this intro to his music. But if you've been a long-time listener, you'll love it as well:
I am excited for, and glad to see, what Desiring God is releasing with these labs.
I started reading a book called Traction, and one of the authors is a co-founder of Duck Duck Go, a search engine who advertises they don't track your every step (in case you are paranoid about what you are searching for). It's a nice change of pace from Google, and pretty clean.
Last Monday, San Diego lost the greatest professional athlete in its history when Tony Gwynn passed away.
I was driving home around 11pm that night listening to sports radio to hear what they were saying about Tony. Certainly a player as committed as he was to a city (20 years as a Padre!) would draw good commentary and reflection.
And with a deep sports-radio voice, the host said, "We're taking your calls to hear your Tony Gwynn stories." I never call radio stations, but I went for it.
I briefly talked about how I grew up around here and went to Padres games with my family at Jack Murphy, Qualcomm, and Petco. But I really called to talk about how I won a contest to interview any Padre for the Padres Magazine in August 1998, and of course, I picked Gwynn.
The impression he left on me was true professionalism and authenticity. He spent way more than his allotted 20 minutes with me. He didn't have to, but he did. He was in no rush, and after I was done asking him questions, he started asking me questions!
I'd brought a good handful of things to be signed (hard not to do when you know you'll be sitting with a Hall of Famer), and he took his time signing all of them. There wasn't any scribbling going on. These were beautiful, clear, and sincere autographs.
The radio commentators (clearly having muted me at this point) went on to say what I totally agreed with: Tony got it. He was a true professional.
Tony left a great mark on professional sports, and San Diego. Anyone who crossed paths with him here knows how lucky they were to watch him in action.
UPDATE: Watch the ceremony from before last night's Padres game honoring Tony.
- This past Wednesday, we had an amazing Livestream event with our good friend, David Ramirez. Take a look, and let me know what you think!
Convicting and thought-provoking:

Shocking news about Donovan being left off the U.S. World Cup roster. It is uncomfortable watching Klinnsman explain that to the team here.
Perusing Chris Ozer's blog is always fun. I love this photo of the Brooklyn Bridge:
