WWDC 2024 comes to a close! And other updates. [The Bulletin - 15th June, 2024]

The Bulletinfor 15th June, 2024 Hey y'all, WWDC 2024 was filled to the top with some insane announcements that I wasn't expecting. But importantly, I got a ton worked on this week. I think you'll be seeing some stuff from me soon... what that is, I can't tell you yet, but get excited! It's worth the wait! Promise. Other than that, I might go back to Android, but that's a conversation for another time. (Adam might kill me, but it's fine.) Anyways, I love quiet and because it has been quiet...

The Bulletinfor 8th June, 2024 Well, It has certainly been quite the week. Chaotic, busy, stressful, you name it -- I've probably experienced that feeling. But all-in-all, I think it was a fairly good week. At least for the most part. We unfortunately had to pack up early due to inclement weather from the Cambridge Valley Balloon Festival (we weren't the only ones!), but not to worry, there are two more (smaller) events you can catch my mom at. Those are below in the usual spot. As for me,...

The Bulletinfor 25th May, 2024 Sorry that this is getting sent late, unfortunately some email errors prevented this from getting out on time. That said, original email is attached below. Howdy y'all, Firstly, I'd like to thank everyone who stopped by my mom's booth at Mayfest in Bennington, VT today!

The Bulletinfor 19th May, 2024 Hey: Sorry for the Bulletin being a day late. I've been traveling and the time got away from me. I didn't have time to really put anything together until now. We'll be back to the regular schedule on Saturday at 8PM Eastern/5PM Pacific/Sunday at 1AM BST (UK time). It was a nice trip, though! Got to visit my friend Valoria for the first time, then swing up to spend my usual week with Christian and his family. Today, I actually went with his mother and little...

The Bulletinfor 11th May, 2024 Hey everybody, I was thinking that I'd step away for a little while longer from producing The Bulletin, but I decided I missed it enough to put it together again. Still no social media for this guy (for the most part), but we can at least have this little corner of the internet for sharing stuff in the meantime. Going forward, I'll also be publishing Bulletins on bulletin.sladewatkins.com/posts so you can get the whole archive at any time, no subscription...

Hey you,Been a while since we last spoke. I'm still taking a bit of a sabbatical from the social media stuff, but wanted to send an email to let you know that I was doing okay. For those who don't have email, I'm also going to share this out on social media too. Honestly, I'm still adjusting to not being so chronically online and seeing every last post that comes into my social media clients (Spring for Twitter and Mona for Mastodon, etc.) I've elected to focus more on one-on-one...
