We officially welcomed the First Day of Spring 🌦 and with it above freezing temperatures. I've been watching the snow and ice recede, the days get longer and I'm starting to think about the ice coming off the lakes. Yeah, I'm a little eager.

WikiTribune is a news platform that brings journalists and a community of volunteers together. WikiTribune just got funded and I became a backer. I've been impressed with Wikipedia and am excited about Jimmy Wales and team focusing on the news ecosystem. I am very curious to see how they realize these objectives. I've previously thought about how news can be reinvented. I focused more on the open source model instead of wiki, but either way I feel like a fundamental rethink is possible! Let's see how they tackle this. Become a supporter today!

Happy Scale

by Front Pocket Software LLC

Happy Scale smooths out your daily scale weights to predict your true weight loss.

This app does a great job of smoothing your weight data and showing you your trend versus any specific data point. It also does a very nice job of breaking bigger goals into smaller steps. This pairs really well with HealthKit, and if you have a scale that integrates with HealthKit it all works like magic.
