Photics.TV has been the main project during the summer, but I learned two things. First, creating high-quality tech videos is significantly more challenging than I thought. Second, it’s important to relax. That’s why a “Relaxing Videos” playlist was created, something to get me away from the computer — at least occasionally. If you can’t get outside right now, and you want to enjoy some serene scenes, perhaps this playlist can help you to unwind.
Merry Christmas! The holiday season is here. For those of you in the United States, hopefully you enjoyed a nice Thanksgiving yesterday. Isn’t it wonderful — good food, friends, family, and crazy discounts on stuff. This weekend, Lulu is having an amazing sale on print products. If you’ve been thinking about learning more about Tumult Hype, this is a great opportunity to get started. Wow! 30% off is a lot of savings.
First, congratulations to SpaceX on their successful Falcon-9 “Demo-2” launch. Human Spaceflight returns to America. Not since 2011 has this occurred. It’s been a similar length of time since a physical book has been available from Photics. Now that changes. A Book About Hype is available at Lulu.com. It’s almost as if they knew of this moment in time. Sporting a new design, their website has recently been upgraded. The book launching illustration on their homepage is fantastic.
HAPPY NEW YEAR! 🥳
While there is some debate as to the official start of the decade, here at Photics.com the event is celebrated today. If for no other reason, now there’s a normal nickname for the decade — the 20s or the 2020s. Woo hoo! In looking for a significant way to celebrate, a new app was launched — Apparatuses. This is the iOS counterpart of the macOS App Widgets. The plan is to work on these apps for many years to come. Officially launching Apparatuses, at the start of a new decade, is a nice way to commemorate the occasion.
Now that the Widgets app is in better shape, the plan is to finally work on a new version of A Book About Hype. While I love working on Widgets, I also love the community at forums.tumult.com! People have been asking for the book. I feel bad for not publishing an updated edition – especially since Tumult put extra work into improving the Physics API. Today, I decided to make it official. Work on the 2020 edition of A Book About Hype has officially begun.
