How I used to listen to music

Nostalgic moment for the 90s: Jimmy Cliff playing on the radio… reminded me of the time in my life when I used to borrow music CDs from the local library during my student years. It gave me access to the entire album, not just the hit singles. And it didn’t drain a student’s budget.

And I was able to explore lots of different kinds of music.

Before that, in Malawi, my main source of music was MBC radio, some international radio stations such as Deutsche Welle and the BBC, and school friends.

My mom will tell you that she doesn’t listen to music. But I have fond memories of MBC radio playing at full blast.

I’ve changed in my music listening habits. We all have. Now we’re all over Youtube and Spotify and iTunes and Soundcloud. Despite all the cool music gadgets that I own, I’m not buying, compiling or storing my favourite music. My main music gadget is my MacBook. And I’ve forgotten what listening to an album is like.

I still listen to a lot of radio music. Especially on the weekends.

I went for a 40 minute run today. Only the first 5 minutes were dry. Then it started raining. Towards the end of my run, the rain became quite intense. Even my trusted rain gear was soaked through.

It was the third time I got soaked today. I guess the rainy season is back.

A valid question?

A tweet to keep. I stumbled across this C.S. Lewis quote:

A valid question to consider.

Sun’s shining. A beautiful day lies ahead. Will try to enjoy the moment today.

I like today’s edition. I started tweeting some of the links.

A Sunday in April

Weather was better than forecast.

It’s been fairly dry. So today’s rain was a welcome change. But despite dark clouds and rain symbols on the Swiss Meteo app, the rain was over by lunch.

Time for a bike ride.

WOD: I cycled to Rheinfelden at a leisurely pace.

“How Much Content Do You Need For B2B SEO Success?” http://selnd.com/1gCD1nN

For future reference:

It’s something I need to look at for my day job. If you know of any background articles please let me know.

Questions and thoughts to explore in this context:
Maintaining multilingual B2B web content is time-intensive. More pages means more maintenance. Should I delete non-performing pages? Re-fresh the content? How do I analyze which pages to discontinue or keep and which new ones to add? Carry out workshops with stakeholders such as sales?

Somewhat related is this presentation on agile marketing:

The first couple of slides remind me of discussions with Persillie on Agile methods, Scrum and software development projects.

I’d like a frugal testing machine. It would help me all along.
