Hey folks — recommending my bud @jaredmoody for a follow…he's a Ruby developer and all-around nice guy and is new to so let's give him a hearty hello!

Diversity in the new U.S. House of Representatives Show more

So-o-o tired tonight after staying up way to late last night coding on a side project, but it was all worth it because I'm learning Swift and iOS app development and it's a ton of fun. (First time I've really picked up a new programming language since becoming a Rubyist roughly 10 years ago!)

2018 was the year I concluded that any system whose purpose is to measure, capture, and monetize human attention is immoral and inevitably leads to the erosion of the commons and society itself. In 2019 I'm committed to helping dismantle these systems by all possible means.
Concretely this means supporting nonprofit alternatives like mastodon, blocking all ad tracking (sorry, people whose livelihoods have been captured by that industry), and doing whatever most damages the attention industry.

First day of 2019 status:

Cleaning my home office/studio and listening to moody progressive house.

Yep, life is good. 😆👍

2018 was the first year I truly embraced posting my photography on a regular basis, and I'm so thankful to have the opportunity to share with you my love for Portland and northern Oregon. Happy New Year and may 2019 bring you much happiness!

(And long my the grow and prosper!)

Dang, just when I felt like @tootapp was the best iOS client for Mastodon, I started trying out by @JPEG — now I don't know which I enjoy more!

(Both are far preferable to that garbage app for Birdsite…)

amazon working toward unilateral control of commerce

facebook working toward unilateral control of data

kinda makes you think, don't it

Argh, working on client projects and coding and all that today just feels…wrong. Want more time off!!!

(Don't worry about me though, I am going on vacation next week. 😁😁😁)

Merry Christmas! I'm thankful to be spending time with my family and enjoying some rest over the holidays. May your days be merry and bright! ❄️
