📚 Armada by Ernest Cline. Ready Player One felt fresh. Armada was a fun read, but felt less fresh. I’d read it anyway. - 2017-02-17 14:50 PM UTC

I wish more Slack integrations (think CircleCI or GitHub) used private messages rather than team messages. That would let individuals customize what they receive, rather than making the preferences something that happen at the team level. - 2017-01-30 15:27 PM UTC

Twitter’s felt weird to me lately, and I’ve always kind of considered it to be me throwing messages out into nowhere anyway, so I’m creating this page as a sort of a microblog for posting short form information and updates. No more 140 character limit! - 2017-01-24 09:30 AM
