How to write an essay

Ten years ago I took a break from writing essays to tell everyone else how to write essays. These “maxims and arrows” (as I pretentiously called them in my younger days - a clumsy nod towards the Nietzsche I was reading at the time) served me well. I don’t use these principles very much today. It turns out industry is more interested in truth than in rhetorical dances. But I suspect they still work well today if you’re studying an arts degree. Here, child. These were my father’s maxims. They are yours now. Use them wisely.

I just released Vidrio, a free app for macOS and Windows to make your screen-sharing awesomely holographic. Vidrio shows your webcam video on your screen, just like a mirror. Then you just share or record your screen with Zoom, QuickTime, or any other app. Vidrio makes your presentations effortlessly engaging, showing your gestures, gazes, and expressions. #1 on Product Hunt. Available for macOS and Windows.
