Probably one of the saddest parts of leaving birdsite was that I’d spent a pretty decent amount of time trying to add and follow a lot more women in tech, and I miss hearing from them.

Help me balance my follows out and suggest some awesome #WomenInTech to follow (cis/trans, it’s all good). Boost this, maybe even reply with yourself, maybe we can get a good list of voices.

Volunteers have set up a web site to coordinate flood relief in Kerala:

keralarescue.in/

Development here:

github.com/IEEEKeralaSection/r

Right now, my home state of Kerala in southern India is a disaster zone: once-in-a-century rains have caused floods and mudslides everywhere; 13 out of 14 districts are in high alert. About a million people have been evacuated. About 350 people are estimated to be dead.

When this is all over, we will have a lot to rebuild. We have donated to Chief Minister's Distress Relief Fund.

Please do what you can? Thank you!

Let's make the first upload a classic! I worked on this Dimensions #cat #crossstitch off and on for years, slapped a caption on, and it's the highlight of my kitchen

Went to Upper Peninsula Michigan this weekend. Some odd maple trees seem to have received some kind of early memo: they have started changing color. This has made me panic.

Stop what you are doing right this moment, maple trees! I am not ready! It is still August!

I'm fascinated by bizarre bug stories.

This one (retold by my ex-Linden-Lab-colleague Mark Ferlatte) happened in the mid-2000s.

The chain of decisions that made this possible could make a book-sized history of computing.

But if you only take one lesson: please, validate your inputs.

Tax havens are destroying the earth

bbc.co.uk/news/science-environ

<<Deforestation in the Amazon and widespread illegal fishing have both been linked to tax havens, according to a new study.

Some 68% of the investments tracked in the Amazon came from companies based in countries where no tax is paid.

When it comes to illegal fishing, around 70% of known vessels are registered in tax havens.

Tax avoidance schemes say the authors, are essentially subsidising the destruction of the environment. >>

Today's monarch news: a caterpillar has escaped its indoor makeshift cage, and is now hanging onto a door jamb, and is very unwilling to budge.

The one in neighbor-donated cage is now a chrysalis.

An ill-looking one I brought inside has died. It wasn't eating anything.

This evening I brought two more very tiny caterpillars inside.

There was this one sitting on the ground in my backyard: they haven't yet learned the art of flying, it appears.

Their family of six or so was quietly watching me as I was taking this picture.

Another day of annoying the goldfinch.

Think what you will, but Red Fang's "Wires" is still my favorite music video
