2015 sharp tool selection

Posted by chiappelli at 2020-02-27

In the past six months, there are 62 creators of sharp tools. They come from different fields: development, design, entrepreneurship and writing. Among them are engineers from apple, Google, Microsoft, chief designer of Monument Valley, novelist who won the Hugo prize More people don't get a great reputation, but they are creating things they love. Some of them have changed from the Internet industry to manual leather bags, some have made an independent game with friends, some have participated in the animation special effects production of Pacific Rim. Everything they create is wonderful.

In 2015, the project also received 30 contributions. Compared with the guests, the proportion of programmers in the community has greatly increased.

Yes, there are friends Tucao, we are an apple station. Let's make complaints about how Apple users behave.

What impresses us is the style of the guests' answers. Liu Cixin used 71 words to answer the questions. In contrast to this, coco Suma wrote an in-depth evaluation of 8000 + words for his living environment.

Atom is mainly used because of its rich components. Want markdown preview? Install a component; Browse binaries? Install a component; VIM mode? Install an assembly. But when atom opens more than 30000 lines of long code, it often gets stuck. To be fluent? Install a sublime.

Design, of course, involves pen and paper

Not just a collaborative communication tool

Slack is a team communication platform where your fragmented communication and collaboration can be gathered. It can also access many third-party services and realize the automation of workflow. For example, W, the author of bay area daily, is a heavy user of slack.

Slack: the operating system of the new era can be used as a communication tool: its basic function is to chat; it can make small notes (talking with Slackbot, which is both a note making function and its own search function); it can be used as a free space for storing files: talking with Slackbot, passing files to it - integrating many third party services. For example, if I integrate launchkit, slack will notify me of a new review of the bay area daily app in the first time. – you can write some small robots to stay in it and help you out. It's a bit like a programmer's command line interface, customizing some commands and automating some processes. – with push and reminder service.

(it's still a little slow to visit slack in China. You have three options: find a scientific internet tool with smooth speed, use slack tools like bearychat in China, and use QQ group)

It's not just Google Docs that can co edit documents

▍ Name: quip ▍ platform: IOS / Android / Web ▍ recommended by: apple4us initiator Zhang Liang

Day one is used for daily combing ideas, but most of them will be moved to the quip for discussion after writing; I will use day one to write all kinds of notes, and I will sort them into longer files and save them in Evernote in stages, but recently I use the quip to feel more convenient.

Here is the whiteboard usage of easy:

Whiteboard. Almost used all kinds of collaborative software, and finally found that whiteboard is the best. You can draw what you want in your brain in the form of a graph, and the mind map in your computer can also be printed and pasted. When planning a large-scale project, it is easy to take a panoramic view of the whole situation, and the effect is particularly good; you can also bring a cup of coffee to watch and play when you are resting, and often get unexpected inspiration. (PS: when the whiteboard is not big enough, you can use the wall directly and stick the layer paper at the bottom.)

Best coder

Ulysses is a markdown writing software. Unlike mark down editors such as Mou, which can preview in real time, it pays more attention to the experience of writing itself. Hao Hailong, the translator of animal farm and the anchor of bit new sound, also recommended this writing software:

This writing software has a good balance of weight. The words you see now are the first ones written in Ulysses.

Late night writing partner

Ideal writing environment

▍ Name: morning by the sea ▍ recommended by: Master brush of Zhiri

It's good to code on the small table in the bed late at night, but also pay attention to nature, which will bring you a lot.

It's a habit left by fishing business all the year round. I get up early every day because I live in a sea view room. I feel boiling when I watch different sunrise on the sea. At this time, I think of many details in my life. There are stories, philosophies and predictions. Early morning is the only way for me to get inspiration for my work. There is no second way.

How to find inspiration

▍ Name: connected reading method ▍ recommended by: Chen Shao, translator of Mars rescue

What are the three most common ways to get inspiration for writing? Bathing, running and reading. Chen Shao has put forward a reading method. Maybe you can also try it:

I highly recommend the connected reading method, at least in part, that is, intensive reading of a good book, paying attention to the books mentioned in the book, and then reading. Or find some books that can be summarized, such as the biography of the writer, which can help you quickly put this person's life and work background into a net. For the writer who pays special attention to himself, we can look for all the books related to his era background, which can help us to have a multi angle understanding of him. For example, in order to study Philip K. Dick, I also read a lot of Vonnegut's books. In addition, I became interested in LSD culture in the 1960s and 1970s, and even found a friendship between the author of the rat family and him. I think on the one hand, I accumulate these related points consciously in normal times, on the other hand, I don't limit myself to spread out. In many cases, inspiration comes from connecting two or more unrelated points together.

A good friend of home office: AeroPress coffee maker, suitable for junior coffee lovers with limited time and budget. You only need coffee powder, filter paper, milk / sugar (optional) and three minutes. Of course, you still need to spend time to find the right coffee beans for you. I often drink Antigua, Guatemala. It should be noted that the taste of coffee is very different when the water temperature is different. It's hard to say whether it's a surprise or a joy.

It's a very abnormal behavior to hang clothes

Distressed in the overcast day clothes always can't work? You need a scientific dryer. You can wear clean, warm and fluffy clothes immediately. Why wait for a day.

Panasonic nh45-19t 4.5kg dryer, of course, has better and more expensive options, but this one is really good. A few years ago, I began to think that it's a very abnormal behavior to dry clothes. You don't know what life is without a dryer in your life Of course, there are dishwashers, and All in all, how to be lazy!

Expand lunch foraging

▍ Name: inokem quick 2 ▍ recommended by: chenqin, Zhihu data

Inokem scooter, 18a brush less toothed version, with a top speed of 28km / h, can run 50km on a charge. It's safer than thinking car and electric long board, more labor-saving than bicycle, cooler and more convenient than battery car. Pushing the classroom in class can pull the distance from students closer. The most important thing is to increase my lunch foraging radius from 1km to 5km, 25 times more choices.

Otaku is going out to meet people

▍ Name: black long sleeve shirt ▍ recommended by: mica group concept designer, sea cat complex

The sea cat's weapon hasn't been published yet. But! The sharp tools of life are amazing. It's early here.

It could be a long sleeved black shirt. Roll up the sleeve to the elbow joint smoothly. Almost all buttons are buttoned up. Add a dark red tie if possible. For me, a lazy person who doesn't care much about appearance but has to take care of going out to meet important partners, it's not a bad move. I bought five at a time.
