Realizing that the new Google icons are so terrible because the color patterns act like dazzle camouflage making it hard to see the shapes:

Overheard my kids' take on some classic rock today: - Freebird is too long (“This song is ten minutes?”), too slow (“We’re one minute in and no singing yet?”) - Sweet Child O’ Mine was a fav. (“Ooh, I like this one.” at guitar intro.) - Too many guitar solos overall. Tracked forward at solo a few times. - Laughed at The Police’s repetitive outro in Walking On The Moon. (Not into the groove I guess.) Kids!

3/4 of my family is in the grip of Duolingo madness. I can’t tell if it’s for the fun of learning or the XP.


I voted. Carefully. It’s all mail or drop-boxes here in Oregon so I don’t get an I Voted sticker. I get this post though.

I guess I need 5G for all of those times I’m out of the house (never) playing high-bandwidth video games (never). I do like to take pictures though so I guess keep adding those dots to the back.

My self-administered pandemic haircuts have gotten so bad that I'm surprised Zoom doesn't automatically disable my video.

I've never been so happy to see elevated particulate matter before. Finally getting a reprieve from the 300s today after a very unusual thunderstorm last night.

It's Day 7 of hazardous air. The needle has moved down a little today which I hope is a trend. Very lucky to still be in my home, but also feeling the weight of this air.

I've been having fun with GarageBand lately and I put together a version of The Rain Song last night to try to summon rain for Oregon. Fingers crossed.

We didn’t get so many of our shared summer experiences in Oregon this year due to covid. Nice that they could drum up "wildfire smoke hellscape" as a last minute treat.

Product idea: coffee cup that detects fourth cup of the day and either shames or praises you based on your preference.

This Google+ data breach settlement is really driving home the value of my PII.

"I Should Have Documented Better: What Was I Thinking?" will be the title of my autobiography if I remember this.


Single serving site idea: Big answer: maybe. Talks about likelihood for various viruses, asymptotic spread, importance of masks, etc.

I'm attending the HighEdWeb A11y Summit today. So glad they've taken this online!
