Even though she dropped out of the race last night, we had Amy Klobuchar's hot dish for dinner to celebrate Super Tuesday. Very good even if a little rich (like many hot dish recipes). Hoping we'll have occasions to celebrate with her hot dish in the future.

Trying to read a paper on blockchain-based identity management. Anxious to understand how they will solve the problems they cite with conventional identity management. Skeptical.

Just sold a lot of old ham radio equipment I haven't used in decades to a used equipment dealer. Both happy to be rid of the clutter and a bit sad to no longer have it, especially the things that were Dad's.

At a white elephant gift exchange the other day with $25 limit, there were three Echo Dots. Had me weighing packages to make sure I didn’t get a surveillance device.

Echofon not working today, may have been killed by . I and others will probably be here much more if that turns out to be true.

Several mentions of Mastodon today at the Internet Identity Workshop.
