Weekends can be tricky! But the streak must go on. There aren’t any tweets in my Notes file today, but this might’ve been a good self-deprecating thought, whether or not it’s original: Y’know, for someone who likes to avoid conflict, I sure do enjoy replaying every one in my head over and over again.

Me: Has a stubborn cold throughout holiday season. Also me: Stubbornly consumes a large percentage of the gluten, sugar, and dairy laden holiday foods in the house. Every time I’ve opened Twitter on my desktop this week, it’s 90 percent people dunking on people and 10 percent AOC dancing. Guess which I prefer? I’m allowing […]

I’ve been trying to read more. Books. Not just staring at my phone. Unless there’s a book on it! I read a decent percentage of Stephenson’s Baroque Cycle that way. A few years ago. I didn’t finish the last book. I’m not saying you shouldn’t spend a ton of time staring into a block of […]
Storify is over. I’m old enough to remember working for a startup that built tools to curate social media posts into news articles before Storify did a much, much better job of it. 😉 I remember hearing about the idea for Storify from Burt Herman at ONA in San Francisco in 2009, which of course […]
