My psychiatrist told me today he's playing D&D with his daughters and his 9 year old wrote "Bisexual, leaning towards women" under alignment. Nothing has given me more hope for the future of gaming than that lol

I used to ❤️ Mapbox. Used their services for several projects, and they were (are?) light years ahead of everyone else in terms of web mapping. But this sort of thing really 💔. I mean being awesome at tech and design doesn’t mean you are automatically a good and kind person. 😔 twitter.com/mapboxunion/status

Riding my bike around Google’s campus and somebody called security on me because they didn’t believe I was an employee. Had to get escorted by two security guards to verify my ID badge 🤦🏾‍♂️

Amused by dueling invitations to submit talk proposals for CSUN and axe-con conferences, held the same week in March.

CSUN is more impersonal with a formal email reminder; axe-con is more casual and assertive jumping into my Twitter DMs.

I reckon it's a feud.

You don’t need NFTs to give artists money. You also don’t need exclusive ownership to enjoy art. And gratuitous waste of electricity is not good art.

Hi Internet! I'm Drew and THIS IS MY FACE.

If this GIF has ever brought you joy in the past, I humbly ask you to consider making a donation to the National MS Society. It would mean a lot to me and to those I know affected by the disease!

I stopped to help the woman, and she was nonverbal and acting oddly. I worried about a concussion from the bad tumble. I asked if she wanted me to call an ambulance,m. After a minute of her wandering around dazed, she asked me not to call an ambulance, that she’d had a seizure.

Crappy end to a crappy week. Today alone, the car mechanic broke a piece of our car and charged us $240 for the replacement, and on my bike ride to pick up the car, I saw a woman have a seizure and crash her bike in front of me, then later threw out my own back.

DuckDuckGo has better results than it used to. When I first switched to DDG as my default search engine, I'd regularly feel compelled to do the same search on Bing or Google because I felt unsure about the results. Nowadays that hardly ever happens.

@rleggos Yeah, I learned years ago to do the HALT check - hungry, angry, lonely, tired. If I’m not satisfy the basic needs it’s hard to have healthy higher level function.

There isn’t a monopolistic “COVID-19 vaccine”, there are at least 4 different vaccines of differing effectiveness and 2 different technologies: the innovative mRNA, and traditional viral vector. If you’re uncomfortable with new tech, get a traditional vaccine jab.

In meetings, too often do I fail to apply this pearl of wisdom from @dckc: "If everyone has taken the action item for a task, then nobody has taken the action item."

that letting hostile forces goad us into unjust, unwinnable wars is letting them win

Both safe, legal abortion *and* vaccine mandates create conditions for the most people to participate autonomously in public life. Whatever (minor) violation of autonomy getting vaccinated represents, it's superseded by autonomy it affords others by protecting the whole community twitter.com/conor64/status/143
