Since new folks are coming in lately, I should do another intro, maybe.

I'm Zac Anger. Bi, 28, from Pennsylvania but now I live in Utah. I used to play music a lot, and run a studio and stuff, but now I write computer things, mostly in JS.

Politically I'm fairly far left.

My posts are usually just social, but sometimes I post about kpop (any Orbits here?), code things, food, alcohol, and how much I miss trees and rivers now that I live in the almost-desert.

in my defense, i would never be blasting music really loud if i was expecting someone, she was 15 minutes earlier than instacart estimated.

my instacart just showed up and i happened to be blasting c-pop really loud and the driver happened to be chinese and now i just feel really awkward about my entire life

I think I like my job again, and actually have some hope that this product/engineering department could become a good place to work.

It's amazing what folks in leadership positions can do if they actually act like they want the job.

hey everyone writing code: you can't get around this. code does not exist in a noble mathematical void which absolves you of accountability. any system which people touch is tied into the fabric of society, and should be scrutinized for potential to do harm.

At some point on a Friday you just have to admit to yourself that no matter how much longer you stay at the office, no more will get done.

(The change here is Software Engineer -> Infrastructure Engineer, after a short talk with the Director of Engineering today.)

Linus acknowledging his toxic behavior is a step in the right direction. I'm glad he's finally realizing what people (especially marginalized people) have been telling him, at great personal cost to themselves, for *years.*

While he's taking time to work on himself, I hope the Linux and open-source communities do likewise, and interrogate why we let his toxic behavior damage our community for so long.
