In completely unrelated news, this is how workflow can come to a screeching halt. My internal dialogue went something like while reading that release: “Chess, now that sounds cool. Let’s throw it up on the blog. When was the last time I played chess? Oh yeah, on vacation, when I mixed up the king and the queen. Dummy. I should bone up. Wonder if there’s a good chess app for my phone? I don’t really play Angry Birds anymore.” After all that I end up at the itunes store, looking up chess apps and about to click on some song from Niki Minaj (who I don’t even listen to – not my first choice, anyway), never having downloaded any apps. At least the blog got posted.
