Wow, my copy of Safari is being used twice in as many months. I hope it doesn't get its hopes up.
I continue to be impressed by Neo4j. "Oh, it can do that, too?" Way more powerful than I thought at first glance! Cypher is amazing, too.

Ahhh @jennschiffer has just released vart.institute - learning programming + art history! First lesson is on Mondrian! So good!
I almost never work up the actual courage to say ‘thanks’. I once did with @iamjohnoliver and I just stumbled and was an idiot.
I freak out when I see an actor who I really admire. Having seen them in ~70 hours of TV, I think I know them. In this case @DominicWest.

Just finished an awesome diversity meeting at @khanacademy. There's much work to be done but I'm excited that we're so passionate about it!
Got up early and got my commits in for the day. Lord knows I'm not getting any work done over the next couple hours.

I guess it's official: @ChristiesInc has no Asia Week Japanese art auction. Follows @Sothebys' shutdown. Interest in the art is dying :(
Amazon buying @Twitch makes a lot of sense. I put a lot of hours into watching Twitch streams/VODs. The future of media is weird and great!
