I've been posting a lot more on twitter lately because the audience I have there -- a lot of techies, a lot of people folks who work at AWS -- needs a lot of this spelled out for them, moreso than here

I am so incredibly livid at our mayor for clearly not giving a shit, ignoring the demands of the people, and actively doing shit that proves how utterly fucking clueless white people are

3000-word blog post I started writing literally a month ago is all queued up to be published on Monday!

I just had a Zoom call with my dad and my sister. This is very weird.

Ugh, this word vomit smells really bad.

Sometimes you really just need to complete the thing that's been on your TODO list and keeps getting delayed...

Software that makes it easy to do the wrong thing and hard to do the right thing is my nemesis.

I'm trying to have an email conversation with a travel agent about a trip for me and my wife, and the agent keeps removing my wife from the To line...

It might be a problem how many times the word "variety" appears in this document so far.
