I've just published Square Workflow Kotlin v1.8.0-beta01, which includes a complete overhaul of our Android UI support.
So that's nice.
Let's see if I have an #introduction in me.
I'm a blue bird refugee.
Online I'm mainly a software type, slinging Android apps for Square. Before that, other kinds of apps with other people, see my bio.
Offline I like to both cook *and* eat. I'm remembering lately that dough is the best thing.
I occasionally leave my house and walk around San Francisco.
That house is filled, packed floor to ceiling, with my wife's books, and my own collection that I thought was decent sized until I met her.
If you aren't delighted to find the last couple of cold swallows of coffee that you forgot to finish earlier, you don't really love coffee. #Addiction
US Pol ICE surveillance state
"Among other findings, the report documents that ICE has driver’s license data for 3 in 4 adults living in the U.S.; has scanned at least 1 in 3 of all adults’ driver’s licenses with face recognition technology; can track the movement of vehicles in cities that are home to nearly 3 in 4 adults; and can locate 3 in 4 adults through their utility records."
The calcium carbonate that clams and other marine invertebrates make shells from contains a carbon atom, raising the question: can clam shells sequester CO2 and fight climate change? Unfortunately, stoichiometry is a pain in the siphon sometimes, and since clams make shell using bicarbonate ion, they actually *release* CO2 while making their shells. Basically, the clams are saying they're not our saviors and solving climate change is our responsibility. But can we get on that already?
In other little known Winnie-ther-Pooh facts,
this is an illustration of Edward Bear (before he changed his name), from "When We Were Very Young", a work that is now Public Domain,
and check out that shirt!
So, your Pooh Bear can have a shirt, so long as it's a button down :D
(and yes, in a later version of this image, that shirt was colored in with red!)
If these were downtown office buildings full of lawyers and accountants blowing up on the regular, it’d be a national scandal. But it’s factories full of country folks and immigrants located in flyover states, so nobody cares
The #NBA playoffs are too long, increasing the chance of injuries way too much. It's borderline blood sport. The first two rounds should be best three of five.
