Portland ICE office shuttered Show more
US #immigration authorities temporarily close #Portland, #OR #ICE office in the face of strident protests. Good on Stumptown, a city for which I retain , considerable affection, having lived there 9 years https://www.npr.org/2018/06/21/622243400/ice-temporarily-closes-portland-office-amid-tumult-of-protests-across-u-s
An absolutely gorgeous sunset here in central Hillsboro, OR!
We were driving southeast of #Portland #Oregon and through the town of Milwaukee, and noticed the big bakery and store for Bob's Red Mill, so we had to stop of course and check it out. Had aisles and aisles of yummy breads and cookies, and certainly all the flour, baking mixes, granola, and dried soups you could possibly imagine!!

The Struggle is Real, but the Darkness is Not
Watching Babylon 5 now that it's streaming on Prime (it's been many years since I last saw it), and while the image quality/FX is pretty poor, I'm struck by just how great the stories are. You could take these exact episode narratives, put them in a brand-new Sci-Fi series with modern FX, and they'd be epic. #tv
Even after living in Oregon (Portland area) for about nine months now, I'm still amazed how easy it is to get to fabulous shopping everywhere (walk, bike, car, bus, train...). Blood pressure way down as compared to when I lived in the S.F. North Bay! 😄
"On the fateful afternoon of April 8, 2017, yours truly was bored and decided he wanted to set up this hot new piece of social networking software called Mastodon. Little did he know how this bit of idle curiosity would affect his life months down the line.
This is the story from then to now in various pieces, as much as I can recall anyways. I don’t remember every detail but what remains is enough to write this post."
I wrote this post, I hope y'all read it.
The fediverse is probably the most important thing i feel like I'm involved with right now. As we start having these conversations about social media, the fediverse is something I can point to where many kinds of community models are explored outside the almost defacto context of ad-driven services. It feels good to be here. It feels good to know that we have relcalaimed some of the most revolutionary social technology from monolithic exploitation.
