I learned about daemons in a mindfulness course, and recognized the term from computing. This led me to learn about the matriarch of system administration, Evi Nemeth.
Excellent Saturday morning music discovery.
I honestly feel refreshed as a human being after listening to this podcast about Fred Rogers, and how the values from the Mr. Rogers show apply to our world today. 10/10 recommend.
I started writing a year in review post, but ended up watching a talk about impostor syndrome…
This weekend I went to an exhibition of Laura Owens’ work, a contemporary painter, at the LA Museum of Contemporary Art. Highly recommended.
Clarity Conference was back at the beginning of December last year, but better late than never, right? I took handwritten notes on my iPad and have (finally) transcribed them for your scanning pleasure.
I like house music a lot. I’m quite a fan of the lo-fi trend, and Ross From Friends is in that category. A class act. Boots and cats and boots and cats and boots and cats and boots and cats.
I now realize my historic aversion to math is due to bad math education. Math is so cool and I want to learn more of it, thanks to this book!
I’m really loving the medium of trustworthy email newsletters lately – here is a compendium of my favorite weekly-ish ones, both within the web dev sphere but also outside it.

In each episode, Abbi explored a […]
I mention this tweet at least three times a week (both while teaching CSS and in general conversation). Now you will too!
I’m into skiing, and it’s time for a gear upgrade. Courtesy my brother at MTNmeister, I’m getting custom skis from Parlor Skis in Boston, and got to design the graphics myself – how cute are these? And here they are in Alta (took a very nice, unplugged vacation for myself):
Before getting into a few, relatively web design-centric favorites, let’s compare podcasts to the written word. By “written word” I mean articles, blogs, and the like. What you sift through on Feedly or links found on Twitter, anything you’d save to Pocket. So yeah, this post qualifies. Oh the irony!
The past few weeks I have been entirely overwhelmed with inspiration and need to drop some serious shout outs: People and Places First and foremost, the the entire web design/dev/tech community. What an open, motivating, and supportive group of people! In particular: Brad Frost – whose work makes me so excited to build things. Matt […]
