I rarely actively participate in the “social” aspect of most online services, but I’ve been fond of Flipboard the past months just because of the ability to curate my own magazine. It’s really just a stream of links, very much like the links I share here on my blog or what others would share on […]

Five on Friday: Why I love my MacBook

I’m now reviving my tradition of doing a Five on Friday entry on days after Friday; I’d rather do it now than wait until next Friday. I feel like I cannot blog about other things if I don’t get this done now anyway. Besides, this would’ve made it to Friday if I wasn’t out with […]
