A quick little technocharm for good luck

Ever struggled and felt good luck slipping from your grasp?? Based off of a Python script I decided to make a quick little technocharm (i’m calling it that now)


1. Cell Phone (optional iPhone)


Open iMessage/text

Send this text to yourself when you feel you need a bit of a luck boost. Imagine your phone start glowing gold (or whatever you imagine luck being a color is) as you input the charm. 

Make me a snake charmer, bring me good luck
Give me a small boost so that I’m not stuck
Read this and go on my way
Let some luck slither into my day

As you press the send button, say “As I have written, as it will be." 

Good luck!! ^_^

Just don’t take away MySpace

Justin Rosenstein had tweaked his laptop’s operating system to block Reddit, banned himself from Snapchat, which he compares to heroin, and imposed limits on his use of Facebook.

Rosenstein purchased a new iPhone and instructed his assistant to set up a parental-control feature to prevent him from downloading any apps. 

He was particularly aware of the allure of Facebook “likes”, which he describes as “bright dings of pseudo-pleasure” that can be as hollow as they are seductive. And Rosenstein should know: he was the Facebook engineer who created the “like” button in the first place.

A decade after he stayed up all night coding a prototype of what was then called an “awesome” button, Rosenstein belongs to a small but growing band of Silicon Valley heretics who complain about the rise of the so-called “attention economy”: an internet shaped around the demands of an advertising economy.

Read on.

Maybe there’s an app that could help these guys.

Thanks, Drudge.
