Brave is showing up in my newsfeeds again, so

Periodic reminder that Brendan Eich, the CEO of Brave Software, is a homophobe who donates to anti-LGBT organizations.

I'm not saying that you shouldn't use the browser. But you should probably be wary of any monetization attempts, since we know where that money will go.

My son at climate rally at the University of British Columbia Vancouver earlier today.

Looking over towards Manuel Antonio Park near Quepos, Costa Rica. One of my favourite views ever, even in the rainy, cloudy season.

Crocodiles seen from a bridge near Tarcoles, Costa Rica. Nice that we were far away high up!

Hello Costa Rica in the rainy season! Still gorgeous but kinda cold up here in the hills above San Jose.

Waiting for the ferry home to Vancouver after long holiday weekend on Mayne Island.

We have just provided a progress report for the first week of #Glimpse project!

Thank you so much to everyone that has expressed interest and contributed so far. The links in this post should answer some of your FAQs and direct you to our project communication channels.

I just came back from a thing so I guess I want to ramble about a thing that kind of frightens and confuses me because it’s been on my mind plenty lately: the idea that no space can be made truly safe.

food mention; celebrations 

Tomorrow begins our annual family cake week: my birthday, my son’s birthday, and my husband and my wedding anniversary all within 5 days of each other. Let the cake begin!

I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.

This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.

I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.

upcoming ICE raid, how to help immigrants 

The ICE raid (that was delayed due to Trump announcing it on Twitter) is on again: nytimes.com/2019/07/11/us/poli

It specifically targets recent immigrants in major cities who have already been ordered to leave, but will also pick up other undocumented immigrants who happen to be with them.

Gonna take the whole "Don't scab on prime day" moment to promote one of my favourite alternatives to an amazon product.

The Movie Database is a free community-run alternative to IMDB, unlike amazon's shitty website, TMDB isn't full to bursting with ads, trackers and sluggish JavaScript, and provides an excellent platform for folk to catalogue information about their favorite films without being marketed to.

Please support it, not just on prime day, but any time you need info on a film. Keep information free.

Hello, world!

This is the first toot from an official account for #Glimpse, a new fork of the GNU Image Manipulation Program.

Follow me for updates on this cool new project.

Coming back home to Vancouver on the ferry from camping. So beautiful here!

Sitting on a ferry trying to work but I don’t know why I try—the WiFi is always pretty much impossible. I think the universe is telling me to start my vacation weekend already!

And FYI, this is on a wall in the room where I take a yoga class.
