Hey everyone! I've just published a beta of my new app for writers -

writingstreak.io

It's a simple tool meant to help writers to develop a daily writing habit, achieve their writing goals, and track their progress.

If you're interested in this sort of thing - it'd be really awesome if you could check it out and let me know what you think. I'm looking for any feedback, first impressions, your thoughts on what could be better.

Just discovered an awesome website - voiceroulette.io, allows you to talk to random strangers on the internet.

For me, as an introvert, it's absolutely amazing, no-pressure anonymous opportunity to have a fun conversation.

It has launched only recently, so there isn't a lot of people there yet, but I really hope it takes off. Come chat with us!

Incredibly fascinating interview about education process at Elon Musk's private school. Damn I envy those kids.

Human body is 70% of water so we’re basically cucumbers with anxiety.

I've made a few cool upgrades to Writing Streak during the past several days. Really happy about how it's coming together!

- Bright theme.
- Export rich text or markdown, filter the documents you want to export using search.
- Writing Prompts.
- Hotkeys help.
- Simple writing mode (write using only the 1000 most common words).
- Countless minor tweaks, improvements and bug fixes.

Friendly reminder dogs are ground birds.

Just added a few stunning artworks to my little collection on ArtStation. Fuck, some people are talented.

Also, recently discovered an incredible artist, who also records timelapse videos of his drawings with absolutely hilarious commentary:

Sorry everyone who hasn't yet received an email about the free Writing Streak account. Since it took off on HN a few days ago (news.ycombinator.com/item?id=1), I'm getting hundreds of emails(crazy cool stuff!).

I promise I'll get back to you =)

(If you've messaged me more than 4 days ago and haven't received a reply yet - you can message me again just in case)

Just discovered fnd.io - allows you to browse ios appstore in your browser, conveniently displaying all the app screenshots. Absolute goldmine for researching app ideas and possible designs.

Hands down, the most insightful article I've read this whole year:

waitbutwhy.com/2015/11/the-coo

A guy who has spent several months working with Elon Musk and writing about him, explains how to learn "Original Thinking" - the process Elon Musk is using to come up with his ideas. Highly recommend it!

- Is this experiment double-blinded?

- Of course! As always, we have blinded both of our scientists after it failed.
