Weekly review: Week ending May 15, 2015

This was the week of lots of walking. With my bike out of commission for the moment (need to fix one of the brake lines) and having resolved that walking is actually a really good use of my time, I decided to see how far I could walk with a target of 10,000 steps. I’ve comfortably beat that target each day I’ve had it. As it turns out, Hacklab is within that walking range (at least one-way), so that means I can just walk over there on Tuesdays. =)

Other stuff: family get-togethers and conversations, an Emacs hangout, a chat about personal knowledge management, and a new top in cotton lawn…

    What step tracker are you using? I’ve been using a Fitbit (and org habits). Having friends on Fitbit is a good way to shame me into meeting my goal consistently.

    Sacha, I am missing the “links” sections. I always used to find one or two links from your weekly reviews interesting.
