I’ve been a dedicated user of running products in the Nike ecosystem since the original launch of the Nike+ back in May of 2006. In that time, I’ve logged over 4400 miles using various devices, including the Nike+ iPod, Nike+ Smartwatch and now, the Nike Run Club app. It’s safe to say that I’m committed to Nike products.

The process for working with Ricoh Theta S VR files requires a couple intermediate steps before you can import the footage into Premiere. I can’t speak to any other editing software but I would expect it to be the case for others as well.

I’m a big fan of Evernote. So much so, that in a previous entry on my business blog, I outlined the reasons that I thought Evernote was the best software for writing (among other things).

Generally, I don’t use the command line to interact with my version controlled client accounts. In most cases, I prefer to use Tower, a great Git client for Mac and Windows but in the case of gbradhopkins.com, I decided to use the command line as a way of becoming more familiar with it. Below are the basic commands that I use to push content to my Github account.
