Anyone else have “Hobby Lobby’s Hammurabi Robbery” stuck in their head today?
Folks, I’m swimming 10km from Golden Gate Bridge to McCovey Cove in 2 weeks. I would love to have your support!
Like many Americans, I’m angry and disappointed about Trump’s repudiation of the Paris Agreement.
What are we going to do about it? This is a small contribution, but I’m going to swim 6.5 miles in the SF Bay to raise money for the environment.
In the aftermath of Paris, the gutting of the EPA, and rolling back of environmental regulations all over the place, we need local environmental advocates like SF BayKeeper more than ever. Please join me in supporting them. (You don’t have to swim with me, unless you want to, I promise.)
And even if you are a Trump-loving Republican, as long as you like clean water, support me anyway! Because local environmental organizations like this are replacing former federal government functions. It’s a win-win either way!
Forming an exploratory committee to consider swimming from the Golden Gate to McCovey Cove July 9. Anyone own a boat I could hire for the day?
(Last year I did this as part of a relay — this year I’m considering a solo swim)

Was already desiring this book and then I saw the author’s autograph. Smitten.
“Taking paternity leave is so rare that it’s not a question of how much time you’re going to take off, but whether you will be able to take any at all.” That’s pretty sad!
Here’s a great post (and a very funny infographic) from one dad who took 12 weeks off with his newborn. MORE DADS SHOULD DO THIS.
Note: Upwork is one of my clients, but I wasn’t involved in creating this post or infographic. I just think it’s worth sharing.
Has it really been 7 years since I relaunched tinywords.com? Time flies. I am no longer editing the journal — that job has been ably taken over by Kathe Palka and Peter Newton — but I continue to maintain the technical side of the site, which is now about 16 years old. It is one of the things I’ve done in my adult life that I’m quite proud of, in a quiet way.
This is what I was searching for about not panicking and not overdoing the outrage. (click through to see Quinn’s whole thread)
Let me say something to my friends about the political emotion of the moment… I have spent an unusual portion of my life in mortal danger.

This article has inspired me to do a few things more consistently on Facebook:
1. I won’t share any articles I haven’t actually read
2. I won’t like or share memes/statement images unless there’s an article I’ve read attached to them
3. I won’t support stupid question-mark headlines (“Is Donald Trump a lizardman?”) by sharing or liking them.

Fake news = propaganda
Normalizing = appeasement
There have been a disturbing number of racist incidents in the wake of Trump’s election. This video, filmed in response to a similar reaction after Brexit, is really helpful.
