A coupe of days ago I punched the time clock at the end of the day and transitioned from coding to writing… and kept coding. Yesterday, the same thing. Today, so far it’s mostly been coding.

It’s not a bad thing that there’s something I’m working on at Apple that has taken root so deeply in my brain.

It’s a very small part of my job, but chasing questions like this is geek nirvana.

But now — right now — I’m gonna finish a draft of Knives 40.
