Got to visit @EdwardTufte’s Hogpen Hill Farms yesterday - such a great experience! So many cool artworks spread out all over the grounds, fun exploration. Definitely worth a visit!…
Captured coyotes on the trail cam! We can hear them yelping at night, first time spotting them, though!…
Finally managed to catch a fisher on my trail camera!… It seemed to be interested in an old gourd I put out…
This role is still open! If you're interested in working with me and a great team on some fun problems with an audacious mission, please apply!…
Github Copilot continues to be the wildest thing I've used during development. It improves my test writing by at least 10x - and I'm still shocked by cases like this, where it guesses the output format right and even generates multiple translated strings! Even with no context!
I'm hiring a new Senior Mobile DevOps Engineer to join the Frontend Infrastructure team at @khanacademy! Work closely with fellow mobile engineers and own our build + release pipelines. Distributed team, US + Canada only. DM if you have questions.…
Ashamed how long it took me to get today’s Wordle, given, you know… that open source library I made?? ⬛🟨⬛⬛⬛ ⬛⬛🟨⬛⬛ ⬛🟨⬛⬛🟩 ⬛⬛⬛⬛⬛ 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩
I heard a strange bird(?) last night in the woods where I live in the Hudson Valley. No bird ID app can identify it, anyone have an idea? (Video unrelated, turn up the audio!) The calls were about 15s apart. It has a whistle sound that’s very unlike most owls… baffling!
I find it fascinating how many businesses *only* exist on Instagram these days. Virtually all local farms/businesses are on there, a few on FB, almost none on Twitter. It's become a critical info-gathering point for me, as a result!
I've been posting a lot more videos and photos over to my instagram lately, since moving to the Hudson Valley: you should follow me there!
Beautiful weather this morning at the Coxing Trailhead at the @mohonkpreserve with @nellshawcohen.
Last month Nell and I moved to upstate NY! We’re in the Hudson Valley, in the Shawangunk Mountains (next to @mohonkpreserve). We’ve been coming up here for years and we wanted to fully embrace being in nature. It’s been wonderful and restorative. Will still visit the city!

This is a fantastic ad that makes great use of 1830/40s Japanese print imagery. Stylistically very similar to Hiroshige's Tokaido Road:… and Hokusai's 36 Views of Mount Fuji:… love it!…
It only took 7 years but I finally hit legend in @PlayHearthstone! Still quite fun after all these years… especially enjoy playing in Wild. Used Murloc Shaman, it’s super strong!
I can't wait to see what the future brings and what work we can do to best help underserved learners. And, of course, we're hiring!

Getting to work at an impactful, mission-driven organization that has such a strong focus on helping those most-in-need, while also providing such a positive work environment and career growth opportunities, is everything I could ask for. 2/
This week is my 10th anniversary working at @khanacademy! It's truly hard to believe it's been so long, over a quarter of my life(!), and I'm so proud of the work that we all accomplish together. 1/
Fellow NYC folks, sign up for a vaccine appointment, if you haven’t already! There’s an abundance of availability. I’ll be hitting full efficacy on Sunday, very happy to have gotten mine! Medgar Evers, for Brooklyn folk, was super efficient, shot in arm in 5-8mins!…

Today is a red-tailed hawk day! 🦅 Went to the@BrooklynBotanicc earlier and saw one chase a squirrel around and then got back home and across the street another hawk is sitting on a sign, eating a 🐀, very graphic! It’s incredible to see two in one day up closeUO
15 years! So hard to believe... feels like a lifetime ago!…
The other day @nellshawcohen and I celebrated our 10th anniversary and we decided to commemorate the occasion by getting engaged! Even though we're already life partners, we're excited to affirm our commitment to each other. Photos from last week and our first NYC trip in 2011!
Yes! Thank goodness Biden/Harris has won! Found out via all the yelling/honking here in Brooklyn, everyone is so excited. 🎉🎉🎉
If you live in Brooklyn please double-check your absentee ballot. The one I received today was for another person and this doesn’t seem isolated. (Outer envelope was correct, security envelope was incorrect.) Contact @BOENYC if your ballot has issues! 😖…d
Finally managed to migrate my final couple side projects off of @DreamHost and closed down my account after 13 years! Had a great run, it supported a lot of great quick-and-dirty experimentation over the years. Just don't use it as much anymore!
Other people in tech, we come from a place of privilege! A couple other aggregators I've found that've been useful jumping-off points for finding places to donate to, or other ways of getting involved: #BlackLivesMatter
We need to be reaching out to City Councils to advocate for them to defund the police. I've found this to be a very valuable resource to help you contact the right people: #BlackLivesMatter
The Black Trans Advocacy Coalition is providing health & safety, advocating for housing equality, and fighting for employment equality for black trans people, and especially now to help all those affected by COVID-19. #BlackLivesMatter
The Loveland Foundation provides free therapy to black women and girls. #BlackLivesMatter
The Emergency Release Fund is bailing out trans people from Rikers here in NYC, both in general and especially in response to the devastating COVID-19 outbreaks there. #BlackLivesMatter
The National Police Accountability Project is working to end police misconduct through community outreach and legislative reform: #BlackLivesMatter
The Equal Justice Initiative is attempting to end mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the US while also fighting racial and economic injustice: #BlackLivesMatter
Communities United for Police Reform is working to cut money from the NYPD budget, increase police transparency, and reduce unnecessary arrests: #BlackLivesMatter
#BlackLivesMatter My heart aches at the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and countless others. It's absolutely critical that we support the black community. We must defund the police and reinvest into social services. I'll update this thread with places I've donated.
The great turnip heist! We worked as a team and used 50mil bells to fill an island with turnips!
New version of the GraphQL guide is out! @lorendsr has been working on tons of new material, it’s coming together really well!…
