Hey, mobile developers in the UK and Ireland! I’m looking for someone to join me on Auth0 by Okta’s developer engagement team to do outreach to Android, iOS, Flutter, and React Native developers. It’s a fun job, and better yet, you’ll get to work with me! DM me if interested.

Earlier today: checked in at Civo Navigate and got a little work done in the Armature Works courtyard.

I’ve been asked again and again: “What do you mean ‘ChatGPT is autocomplete on steroids?‘” Here’s an article the principle behind that much-talked-about AI explains it, using an O. Henry short story from the early 1900s!

This update to an earlier post of mine adds a video from the recreational cryptography YouTube channel, The Black Chamber.


I’m working on my own YouTube channel for tech and have been watching what some of the ones that get lots of views do. That’s how I stumbled across this doomscroller’s dream of a financial channel.


“He’s seeing fruit for the first time in almost a year. He says: ‘I’m almost afraid to taste it.’ But he wasn’t. He took a bite of it. And in a second, he said: ‘This is… awesome. It’s just awesome,’” photographer Andriy Kachor said

Threat Assessment

You have the world's lamest superpower. While other people were gifted with flight, laser vision, and magic, you got "threat assessment". At least that's what you call it. It's not like you're going to tell anybody else about it.

You're a unique power is the ability to see how dangerous someone is. This knowledge appears, only to you, as a number floating over their heads.

Look at a baby, you'll see a one. An average adult, a three. A Marine? Usually a five or a six. (1/).

It's so weird to see people cheering on tech layoffs because they believe tech workers get paid too much and don't work hard enough, but then also cheering on billionaires laying them off because they apparently do deserver the money and do work hard enough. Like, there's literally a wealth threshold where you go from "overpaid" to "how dare you question this man, the amount of money he has means he is completely infallible". It's like a tabletop exercise in coming up with the wrongest possible take on wealth inequality.

I just spent a little while reviewing what Fox, OAN & Newsmax had been discussing this past week and whoa.

I must really live a privileged life in one of the last bastions of safety in the U.S. because based on what they're reporting the USA is the very worst place on earth.

The U.S. Supreme Court is a dumpster fire.

-- Supreme Court justices used personal emails for work
-- ‘burn bags’ were left open in hallways,
-- Staff afraid to confront justices on bad security practices

Here's the news story:

What’s more quintessentially British than trying to have your steak and kidney pie and stout interrupted by a drunk and unruly patron flailing with a dumb improvised weapon while getting ejected from the premises?


Had a grand old time at the fundraising gala for the Glazer Children’s Museum, and even got to get up close with the world’s largest triceratops!


I can't get over this New York Times headline saying Ron DeSantis is "building his brand" by wrecking public education in Florida. It reminds me of NYT’s first mention of Hitler in 1922, which claimed his anti-Semitism wasn’t “genuine” or “violent” but was just “bait” to attract followers. From 1922 to 2023, NYT is still covering fascists from a marketing perspective rather than a moral perspective.

In case you missed it: I’m on the current episode of the “No Password Required” podcast! I talk about Auth0, mobile/IoT and AI, developer communities, the mainstreaming of geek culture, and saying “YES” to maximize your “luck surface area.”


Love when I find little drawn artifacts my 10-year old son creates. I love the little dangling bone and stars of desire around the dog’s head! :-)

I have a tiny little Jupyter Notebook that sorts import statements. It never occurred to me that Android Studio would have something built in that does it.
