Imposter Syndrome is something I’ve talked about a lot here, because I know how valuable it is to hear that even the creators you look up to the most have experienced it. So let me open up more about it a bit - in case it helps. A THREAD /

“Eric, how can we get more aware of the needs of disabled people?”

Me: “How many disabled people do you have on staff?”

Me: “Start there.”

Super sad that @WhenWorksApp is closing down. Is there any other similar meeting booking service that works with calendars from different sources, not only the usual ones?

K1 hat Mini-Schnittwunde. K2 kann kein Blut sehen, fällt hin u hat eine Platzwunde. Deshalb hyperventiliert 3. Kind vor Aufregung. Mehrere RTW u. Notfallseelsorger an der Schule bei Aachen. Und vielleicht sollten Eltern ihre Kinder doch etwas besser ans wahre Leben gewöhnen.

Yup, I talk about this all the time. Since Tagalog is an agender language, my mom has gotten pronouns wrong forever. Most people are just “she” since in Tagalog it’s just one pronoun “sha.” She frequently misgenders because she’s not used to gendered language. twitter.com/_dianakris/status/

I used to lecture on Black Friday that we don't need to buy things, but thanks to Twitter I learned many people (especially disabled folks) wait for today to afford essentials they can't get at full price. And now I direct my lecture at society for putting them in that position.

What can go wrong? :-D

Before you even open a text editor, your project contains 1.5 million lines of code. Most of it contributed by volunteers and enthusiasts. No formal review or release process.

This is 'normal' in modern web development.

I *know* we all want an edit button but we have to accept that the danger of paradoxes is just too great and protecting the integrity of the spacetime continuum must come first, always

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to speak about today’s Catholic School Board Meeting.

A meeting that lasted only 13 minutes and was eventually cancelled due to a disturbing exchange between myself and Laura Thibert, the Board Chair.

When people freak out over the Cybertruck like it’s some sort of next level innovation... we could be doing so much more as a country. People need to dream bigger.

Oh, look, I’m briefly on TV (on stage in the panel format)
