so this happened
Good morning from transit (not pictured).
@ben_c *I* think it's super important to realize that we aren't trying to kill twitter. We're trying to have a social media platform that doesn't suck. 👼
if you are bothered by the state of IT infrastructure
whatever you do
for the love of all that is holy
don't every do any home renovation
you will be swearing all day
asking yourself what the builder was on
all the while creating your own code violations
Getting ready for a trip and designing coding katas, so today is starting out pretty nicely.
Complaining about type systems and using C++ in your argument is like saying coffee is bad because you don't like what they serve at Dunkin' Donuts.
We can do better than this, please.
my wife told me that Pearl of "Diamond and Pearl" is Jenny Calendar, and I will never be able to watch Prince videos the same way again
We're undertaking a pretty massive change effort at $DAY_JOB. In a naked attempt to grab the reins, I volunteered to participate in 4 of the 6 committees, and I'm facilitating 3 of those.
I did not foresee this level of meeting fatigue...
Tell me more about what you love than what you hate.
Tell me more about what makes you feel safe than what makes you afraid.
Tell me what makes you sing and dance and wax poetic and bust a gut laughing.
The important things.
I will endeavor to do the same as often as I can.
Worked out after a week or so dry spell. Feeling tired and good.

I'm glad my friends are outraged by cruelty to and mistreatment of animals. It's a very sensible thing to be outraged about, but pictures and descriptions of cruelty to (non-human) animals destroy me. I wish I never had to see them, and I wish I was a member of a species that didn't have to be outraged about that, and didn't have to share information about those things as an expression of that outrage.
