Hobonichi Planner

Way back in late 2014 I wrote about my first year using a Hobonichi Techo planner.

This year, as I ordered my fifth Techo, I thought it was interesting that since 2013 I’ve switched around a few software task manager applications — Omnifocus, Things, 2Do etc — but the paper (or …

Red Oxx Mini Boss

Lest we forget

At the weekend I was reading a book¹ that reviews the activities of some notable physicists during the First World War in order to highlight how it shaped their later careers.
