Tech update: This is the last newsletter you'll receive from me on TinyLetter. Next week, I'll be sending it with MailChimp-- which shouldn't change anything for you. But there's a chance it'll go to spam, which means you should keep an eye on all corners of your inbox next Friday.
I know when that hotline bling, it can only mean one thing: NEW EMOJI.
Soon I'll be wondering how I managed to get by in the dark ages before we had a burrito, couch, or mansplaining emoji. I'm going to need all of my personal friends up update their iPhones stat. Because the block of cheese describes 70% of my feelings and plans.
On an unrelated note, I also endorse the new This.cm! More about the site here. It's where I post my favorite read of each day. (Well, most days.)
Live! In person:
Nov. 4, Los Angeles: I'm a guest speaker at Pivotal Labs' Product Mashup in Santa Monica. We're going to nerd out about process and iteration. Grab a ticket here.
"@annfriedman is my new #ladycrush and I get butterflies whenever her newsletter arrives." -Ashley Chang. The Drake gif is really going to send you over the edge. You're welcome / sorry.
"My fave Saturday morning reading material includes reading the latest @annfriedman newsletter. Always learn something new from her links." -Shenneth. My Saturday morning reading material is books because I'm so sick of the internet by Saturday.
And thanks to Lenny Letter, newspapers have recently discovered that email newsletters are "a thing." This one is mentioned in the Washington Post and the Evening Standard.
This newsletter only calls you when it's Friday.
Forward it late-night when you need some love.
