Let’s Hang Out →

I’m an extrovert, and lately it’s felt so good to be able to see and meet people again that I want to do a lot more of that in the next few months.

So, if you’re in or around New York, let’s hang out! I made a cute little form to keep things organized. Don’t be scared, don’t be shy, come on in the water’s fine. ✌️

Uses This →

I’ve been reading Daniel Bogan’s Uses This (née The Setup) interview series since I was a teenager. They chronicle interesting people’s hardware and software setups and end up being a fascinating window into the subject’s priorities and tastes when it comes to tools and toys.

My own interview just went up on the site, so now you can read all the nerdy details of my setup. Let me know what you think!

Software Sommelier on Clubhouse 📱🍷 →

A few years ago, I let folks on Twitter ask for software recommendations for any problem they need solved with an app. People loved it and I loved helping people find the perfect software solutions to their quandaries.

This Friday at 3 PM ET, I’m experimenting with a version of the same thing on Clubhouse co-hosted by my friend and colleague, Jillian Meehan. It’ll be be a fun, nerdy time and we’d love to see hear you there.

PS: If you need a Clubhouse invite, let me know and I’ll send you one. ✌️

My 2021 yearly theme is Invest 📈.

Last year’s theme was about making commitments. Getting married was one of them, but so was writing more consistently on my site. This year builds on those commitments with a focus on things with longer timelines.

If you’re curious about the idea of yearly themes, here’s the latest Cortex episode on the topic.

Thanks to everyone who dropped by the livestream last night and donated to Trans Lifeline. Thanks to the generosity of 108 of you, we raised $5,685 to help trans people in need. Best birthday ever. 🏳️‍⚧️🎂
