Often, my spontaneous prayer life falls off and needs jump-starting through regular structure throughout the day. Regular scripture reading. Closing the day by folding it up into self-awareness of God's existing presence within it and promise for tomorrow.
Society to spur human thinking past even our "long-term" horizons into the far-beyond future. 10k year clock (not YYYY {4} but YYYYY {5}). Archiving all human languages, 3k books to reconstruct civilization. I personally groove on its "Canticle for Liebowitz" monastic mission.
The slick, elegant front-end to dive into your RSS feeds, in-app or from providers like Inoreader or Feedly.
DnD (🤎) meets GTD in an open source project. Keeps more tasks out of my short-term memory and builds them into habits that stick. Joked about by fans as "Crackbitica" and some people give it up for Lent.

Developer- and wallet-friendly. Believes in, and furthers, open source.
Quarterly journal thinking about humanity's best and worst interactions with technology. "Our aim is a culture in which science and technology work for, not on, human beings."
