You might be a Tetris master, too
By Andrew Meyers • Issue #88 • View online
Here we are, gang! It’s Friday again, and I’m thrilled to be back with some fun stuff I saw this week.
Can I ask a favor? I’d love to know what you think of the new “10 things” format. Hit reply — I’m excited to hear from you.
Have a good week!

  1. This week I have to lead with this fantastic story (from the Boston Globe in 2007) about a woman who accidentally became a Tetris world record holder. So fun.
  2. And for extra credit, be sure to watch King of Kong, the video games documentary referenced in the article above.
  3. Let’s keep the Mario train rolling! You can’t make this up — Bowser is Nintendo’s new president.
  4. This is so cool — designer and Field Notes co-founder Aaron Draplin created a United States postage stamp (via Tools & Toys).
  5. And speaking of design, UX designer Matej Latin has released the second version of his self-published book, Better Web Type.
  6. Consider is “an email client designed to keep you calm and focused.” Sign me up!
  7. Tripsy is an iOS app for managing your travel, and version 1.2 comes with automatic flight completion and tracking alerts. Definitely an app to keep an eye on if you do any sort of regular travel for work or leisure.
  8. Loom is a sweet app for screencasting from your computer, and the recently released Pro version includes unlimited video storage and an editing suite. I may end up using Loom to record screencasts for Better With Basecamp.
  9. I have a 2018 MacBook Pro for work, and one of the things I miss is the LED charging indicator on the power cord. Moshi offers this third-party substitute (via Marco Arment on ATP).
  10. And finally… Major League Baseball rounds up the strangest logos in the history of each of its teams.

Please forward it along to a friend (or two!) — it’s the best way to support The Agenda. You could also buy my Basecamp book (and save $10, no less) or buy me a coffee.
Thank you! 👏🏻
