Some truly inspiring words from @feliciaday@twitter.com at on the importance of diversity in fandom - and on hair.

On the DLR to Excel centre for MCM Comic-Con with a load of cosplayers. Pretty sure they just announced “next station, Star Labs.”

Just re-watching a talk I gave almost 3 years ago at @DevTalksRo@twitter.com on the rise of HTTPS, and the influence that the STRINT workshop had on this movement: w3.org/2014/strint/draft-iab-s So much progress has been made since then: internethealthreport.org/2018/ youtu.be/fxVGWQ83bBI?t=6m5s

My UK political stance is Hard Remain: Schengen, the Euro, bendy buses - the whole shebang. 🇪🇺

I'll be today all day at @VRWorldHQ@twitter.com event in Olympia London on behalf of @samsunginternet@twitter.com. Come say hi and ask me about #WebXR!
