Mix. Create Together.

Today, my FiftyThree colleagues and I launched Mix, an open platform for creativity, built right into our award-winning iPad app, Paper. Now, you can share a page in Paper with creators around the world and work on it together. Put your sketches and ideas out there, and see what comes back.

My work at FiftyThree involves listening, observing and promoting our customers’ sketches and ideas. I’ve been incredibly moved by the collaborations and connections that have already happened here on Tumblr between people who have never met. Imagine what’s possible now that you can brainstorm, problem solve, and co-create together. It’s a new era for creativity and collaborative thinking. I hope you’ll join us. You can follow me at mix.fiftythree.com/amy.

Surface Pressure for Pencil. Coming This Fall.

FiftyThree, my favorite company of all time (and the one I work for) just announced a new feature for our award-winning stylus, Pencil. This fall, Pencil will get Surface Pressure, a feature that will let you use every side and point of the tip, much like the way you’re used to when using a “real” pencil. Use the wide side for shading and the point for details. You’ll even get greater control over the eraser–use the edge for small mistakes and the broad side for big ones.

As always, I’m proud of my teammates who work hard to improve the things we make every day. Get Pencil here!

dear blue bottle team
Just writing to share a great customer experience at your Williamsburg location this morning – with special praise for JP. At least one morning every weekend, my fiancé Chris and I stop by Blue Bottle for coffee, a biscuit and ham & cheese sandwich. We always have a good breakfast even though service is usually a little hectic. (You guys have a lot of customers! We understand.)
This morning we walked to Blue Bottle with our dog Jack in the 85 degrees. Jack was really starting to feel the heat, but waited patiently for Chris to place our order and get our coffee. JP noticed Jack waiting and looking hot in the sun. Five minutes later, JP came out with a makeshift plastic bowl which he cut and fashioned out of a takeout container, and filled it with water for Jack.
It was a small but kind gesture. Williamsburg can feel overly commercial these days, but the neighborly and thoughtful gesture that JP made will stay with me and Chris for a long time. Thanks for a great morning.

Chris and I went to see Kishi Bashi last night. We argued all the way there and when we got to the venue, we had another fight. That’s two separate arguments. (We’re skilled like that.) Fuming, I nearly stormed out to go home. The show hadn’t even begun yet. It was 10:30.

But, as it usually goes when we upset one another, Chris apologized first and persuaded me to stay. 

The concert turned out to be one of the best live performances we’d ever seen. Beaming in the afterglow, we walked home, his hands in mind.

Once home, we picked another fight. (This time about the dog.) 

And so it goes. That’s Life.
