I'm a long-time advocate of and sharing (in so many contexts) and have worked professionally in university libraries (UMich), at Creative Commons, and now (for a long time) at the Wikimedia Foundation.

I'm also co- two unique children and we're doing our best to meet their needs where they are.

I like to engage with fun topics and CW everything political and most things re parenting. I also about work sometimes.

The band Morphine. Good stuff. That's all.

There was a time when people like me referred to content tagging as “folksonomy,” in case you were wondering how far up our own asses we used to be

The first union in a AAA studio (by Vice's counting) has just won the NLRB vote to bring itself into existence, after announcing an intent to form back around January.

The union in question is not big— about 28 members, comprising the QA team of a sub-studio of Activision Blizzard that does overflow work on Call of Duty titles— but unionization is so rare in games it's still a milestone. Interestingly I guess this means it will also be a rare union within Microsoft?

medical, subtype surgery(minor) 

I need a growth removed from my lip. Really simple small incision operation.

My primary physician recommended a couple plastic surgeons to do it.

Looking at their websites today and.... I am not the target patient. These websites are almost NSFW with their images representing breast augmentation and liposuction.

I kinda miss using the HMO plan vs this PPO plan.

covid, cont 

And now the oldest tested positive after being super tired with a fever this morning. Almost two weeks since we were exposed at the high school play, and about 10 days since Carrie and I fell ill, and a week after his younger brother succumbed.

Mask up and boost. This crap ain't worth it.

OK, I'll get off my fully-customizable acceleration sounds for EVs soap-box. But for real, we should have them. The future is now.
