Always In
> AirPods foster a different approach to detachment: Rather than mute the surrounding world altogether, they visually signal the wearer’s choice to perpetually relegate the immediate environment to the background.

​> AirPods, then, express a more complete embrace of our simultaneous existence in physical and digital space, taking for granted that we’re frequently splitting our mental energy between the two.

​> AirPods have externalities — penalizing non-wearers while confining the value they generate to their individual users.

​> Once everyone has earbuds that are always in, physical proximity will no longer confer a social expectation of shared experience.

​> subordinate our in-person sociality to the privatized infrastructure of networked communication

​> Now, the kind of space that suffices instead is a pleasant backdrop for solitary device usage, a relatively blank slate that doesn’t compete with the phone’s foreground — conditions that places like Sweetgreen and Equinox supply.

​> A dominant aural information platform could have a similar effect, fostering a world where we might as well leave our headphones on because there’s nothing around us worth hearing.

My Setup — MacSparky
For years now I've been receiving emails from readers and listeners asking me to keep a post on the website describing my current setup. It's always been a page I've wanted to add to the website but also something just out of reach in my OmniFocus lists. In the upcoming episode of Mac Power Users, Stephen and I stray into our individual setups, and I committed, on air, to have my setup posted on the website by the time of publication. It's still a bit of a work in progress but ... alas … it lives!

Success rate of “hey Siri” being recognized on new is terrible, maybe 5/100 and I have to speak awkwardly…
