4x Friday – September 11, 2020

Welcome to the inaugural 4x Friday, a list of what I’m pondering and exploring.

A special note: Please join me in remembering the victims, the survivors, and the heroes, of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.

What I learned – I was reading Timber Frame HQ and I was introduced to a term I didn’t know, stereotomy.

What I discovered – Researchers have developed a new type of antimicrobial coating made of silver and ruthenium and tested it on one of the yuckiest surfaces inside the space station — the toilet door. After the first six months, the AgXX-coated surface remained bacteria-free. John Paul DeJoria mentioned in an interview that Rokit Phones will soon be available with AgXX, meaning (if you have one) every time you touch your phone your hand is being cleaned. Imagine the possibilities, especially for products specified in home design.

What I’m watching – Hot Ones, a YouTube web series with hot questions and even hotter wings. Host Sean Evans interviews celebrities such as Gordon Ramsay, Tommy Chong, and DJ Khaled as they burn their taste buds. I’ve watched four seasons. They are still making new episodes.

What I am pondering – The question, “If I could only work 2-hours per week on my business, what would I do?”

Have a wonderful weekend!


P.S. – Given up on social media as a source of (valuable) information and education? Looking for a tool that separates the signal from the noise? Subscribe to the #HomeDESIGN Professional Daily. An online paper I edit and publish for AIBD. By sifting through hundreds of posts by industry influencers, I cut through the content and provide clarity. Although the content is 100% social media, you don’t have to sign into anything or have any accounts. I limit each issue to twelve articles/posts, one pic, and one video (12-1-1), and I deliver it to your inbox every weekday evening.

P.P.S. – I am cycling 300 miles in September to fight kid’s cancer. Please consider supporting me https://greatcyclechallenge.com/Riders/SteveMickley/.. All funds raised will support the Children’s Cancer Research Fund to continue their work in developing innovative treatments and finding a cure for childhood cancer.
