I didn’t discover the joys of peanut butter, and in fact I hardly ever ate it, until I was in my 40s. AMA.

A dimly-lit, cozy interior of a bar with vintage chairs and tables. Soft light filters through large windows, enhancing the warm ambiance. Green hanging lamps illuminate parts of the room. A soft glow from small candles on the tables adds to the intimate feeling.

A Better Upload Flow for Mimi Uploader

A new beta for Mimi Uploader is out now. If you’re not in the beta, you are welcome to join in.

This beta introduces a modernized and faster upload flow which takes you from uploads to recent uploads with zero taps!

The new flow unifies the uploads screen and the recent uploads screen into the main app screen. This provides immediate access to your uploads right after uploading so you can move on to exporting or adding alt text right away!

This represents a major change in the way Mimi has been used since it launched many years ago, so I’m very interested in your feedback.

(Link to the video embedded above).

A new streamlined upload flow is coming to Mimi and is nearly ready for beta. I hope y’all like it as much as I do 😊

Leach Botanical Garden. Portland, Oregon. 25th May, 2024.

Last night, just before I slept, a thought occurred to me and I visualized a photograph in my head. I woke up at 4:30am, and as the pre-dawn light started to illuminate the room, that photo popped back into my head. I couldn’t get back to sleep and finally got out of bed at 5 AM.

I had some coffee and as the sun rose in a mostly cloudy sky, I decided I was gonna go and try to take that photo. I drove to the location, walked around to see the perspectives, and finally took the photo, and a couple more for good measure.

I took them on film so it remains to be seen how they turn out, but I’m glad I went.
