Notes

I joined Twitter on October 12, 2006.

I joined Diaspora on October 12, 2011.

I joined Mastodon.social on October 7, 2016.

This October, to celebrate Elon Musk buying Twitter, I created another mastodon account on chaos.social, and intend to finally make the fediverse a regular part of my umwelt.

Our house features a view of the backstage loading area of the Carré Theater. It’s fun to watch the logistics of a wide variety of shows and their respective levels of technical support and security.

Today, I’m very amused to see the unusually nerdy crowd queued up for the Muse show, and lined up in front of our house hoping to see the band arrive. With lots of colored hair, slightly punk style, and not-very-Dutch somatotypes, they made me feel like I was back home on Seattle’s Capitol Hill.

Two podcast episodes brought tears to my eyes yesterday. First, John Green on sunsets is simply beautiful. Then This American Life documenting the end of Roe on the ground evoked that “you can never go back” nostalgia for a better America.

I’m getting used to riding on windy days, but it’s demoralizing when a wind turbine turns to look directly at me.

7 hours of sunlight in winter, 16 in summer. Living this far north really makes the seasons noticeable.

I must resist porting my site to Lume only to learn about Deno.
