In contrast to the sales-y tweets I do, I’d like to use Mastodon to talk about more personal matters. In this spirit: I think I’ve fallen out of love with the whole cascade of public speaking: traveling for work, hotels, conference venues etc. I’d rather be home with my family. Any time there’s a speaking opportunity now my head goes “Nope. Been there, done that.” I keep hearing Bilbo’s words: “I don’t think I shall be coming back. In fact, I mean not to.”

It has a very specific kind of bittersweet hilarity to it when people react with “Never Forget!” to mentions of WW2 war crimes as Democratic structures all around the world are openly being dismantled, women are being discriminated against & global Capitalist industry abuses well-intended systems and turns them against the people.
It’s nice that you intend not to forget past atrocities, but how about acting to prevent coming ones?
