I'm getting started developing a resource about the harms of tech, and I need feedback from a few technology creators, researchers, journalists, or concerned people. Would you be willing to email your answers to 10 questions? Let me know! Send me an email address that works for you, and I'll send more info!

"The act of focusing our mightiest intellectual resources on the elusive goal of goto-less programs has helped us get our minds off all those really tough and possibly unresolvable problems and issues with which today's professional programmer would otherwise have to grapple." - John R.

I'm spending my Friday night submitting an unlock phone request to AT&T. How are you spending yours? 😜

Re: End of Service for Weather Underground API.

TIL: The Weather Channel bought Weather Underground back in 2012, and later sold it (and almost everything else) to IBM. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Tuesday.

Tuesday’s are underrated. It’s the gut-check that’ll determine how the rest of your week will go.

One would think a three hour time shift wouldn’t be enough to cause jet lag ...yet here we are. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'm a big fan of Kaleidoscope, but I'll probably give this a shot to see how it compares.

Perhaps the single most revolutionary idea in social media right now is discarding the assumption that people will communicate in good faith and plan for people with negative intentions.

Being able to assume good intent is not a generalized view point but one that comes from a very specific place of privilege and access.

Shifting away from this perspective would be a significant step forward in improving the quality and safety of online interactions.

Seeing some gnarly videos coming from the Typhoon in HK. Buildings shaking. Stay safe if you’re currently riding out the storm there.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend.
