A Shooting Star

I’m generally happy in Capture One, but sometimes you need Affinity Photo to correct distortion from a wide angle lens. The mesh warp tool is pretty handy for such things.

Rate of Growth

“I definitely understand how that would make lots and lots of extremely rich people uncomfortable,” said Mr. Hanauer, co-founder of a Seattle-based venture capital firm and an early investor in Amazon. “But I’m more worried about our democracy.”

“Don’t get me wrong,” he added. “I would prefer 3 percent.” But even at 6 percent, he said, “we would all survive and continue to be rich and fly around in our planes.”

He pointed out that most Americans had been living with meager income growth for decades, while the silk-thin layer at the top shoveled in enormous gains, cumulatively more than 400 percent since 1980.

“All you’re doing is saying to the richest percent of Americans that the rate of growth of your assets and wealth will now match what has happened to other Americans over the last 40 years,” Mr. Hanauer said.

A Catalina Double Standard

Third-party apps have to be granted explicit permission to display notifications (even if they were already in use on your Mac), but Apple can display a marketing message for their browser when rival Chrome is launched for the first time on Catalina. Cool.

By the way, Firefox is my system default browser. The team has put in a ton of work to make it fast and stable.

Sketch Pin to Corners

Wouldn’t it be nice if the four corners of the Pin to Edge control in Sketch’s Inspector served as a way to set corner pinning with a single click?

Built in Drama, which is a nice new macOS app. It doesn’t have the scriptability that Kite does, but I like the UI and drawing capabilities more than Principle.
