Did it! Yay! (Does this count as a sub-toot? I never understood that stuff)
I woke up at 6:04 with a song in my head (fly me to the moon) thinking yay! I can run! And the heavens have opened. First time in my nearly two months of daily running that it has rained.
I’ll give it 10 minuets and go anyway 🙂 now that I’ve said it, I’m committed. (I work like that with goals- externally articulating them is a definite motivator)
just got a reminder from my work email - so I clicked on it.
And it said: Nothing new right now.
-so it sent me this so I would look? What's up with that? I closed the application in response.
Today's ironically good day
I had a meeting far away and had to get up at 4am to catch the train (I'd say pre-dawn, but it's light then here) and a long meeting to sit through... but, I slept the WHOLE way on the train (well slept 4 of 6 hours, and that's monster napping) And then and the tube guard in London let me out of the station to get my favourite falafel even though my ticket didn't let me go out & back. He let me if I promised to run. I'm rested and all falafeled up. mmmm!

More and more I think my doctoral research will focus on the process of change. What troubles me is much of my reading list: Foucault, vonHippel, Womack.... today I added Centola.
What troubles me is that it is very white and very, very male. So I’m asking, begging really, for recommendations: Non-white, non-male scholars studying the process of change (any discipline) - Expecting the responses will make me feel embarrassed for having had to ask...
A cool article about how exacting Fred Rogers was about the language used on his show so that it wouldn't confuse or accidentally mislead kids: https://www.theatlantic.com/family/archive/2018/06/mr-rogers-neighborhood-talking-to-kids/562352/?single_page=true
I especially love the examples given.
Oh the lovely blackbirds! Happy bath bird!
there's a hedgehog hiffing and huffing in our garden. -They are mostly blind and their sniff sounds like a scary goblin in the bushes. Nearly petrified me the first time I came across it. Such a big unexpected sound from a small docile creature.
Now it's a lovely sound, because I know they made ti through the winter and will be here for another season. :)
Wow, it's only taken Twitter about a million years to realise that people use favouriting as bookmarking.
When is Mastodon going to get this feature?
you know when you suddenly remember something really strongly? This one hit me and I could taste it.
There was this place: Walker Bros Pancake House. They made the most amazing apple pancake, & it took 40 mins to cook, and it was monumental. I used to go there aged about 17 with friends, we'd drive the half hour or so to get there and sit and talk the day/night away.
I found the recipe- a recipe for a memory.
gonna cook one up.

I'm at our L&T conference today. The opening keynote by our Pro Vice Chancellor has already talked about
community, our L&T & 'student engagement' strategy, the importance of not marginalising, that we all deal with mental health issues, the need to ask 'Who does this community leave out?' & how can we open to include, invited us to 'fail & fail better', and the goal to find a good way of 'being' as an educator and in the world. He finished with Marx.
I work somewhere special. #thisday
garbage (& strong language) Show more
On my run there are places by the sea where sometimes people stay the night in a caravan, & it is not uncommon to see waste left on the ground. What is it like to have so little care that you knowingly leave your mess RIGHT BY THE WATER’s EDGE where it will be dragged into the sea with the next tide? I can understand that ppl mess as ‘fuck you’ to society, but what they say is ‘fuck all the children to come’. They will see the effects.
I recycled these. #smallstories
What #forkoff really needs is not to ragequit, but to federate *development*.
What if instead of a project fork happening because there was a big fight, a project fork happened because some people like to work solo (hi!) and other people like to work in groups with a specific goal.
And instead of developing competing, fragmenting forks, everybody worked with the intention of keeping everything compatible. Plugins, optional features, add-ons, etc.
FEDERATE ALL THE THINGS
