I had the pleasure of being on @HallwayChats with @TaraClaeys and @liamdempsey to discuss my involvement with the WordPress community and offering ongoing maintenance and support for WordPress sites via @FixUpFox. Thanks for having me!

Twitter timeline is still a garbage mess, even if it's only because while it's all Pokemon related, the grass starter isn't getting the love of the others, as usual.

I'm very annoyed at some of the garbage videos that @YouTube recommends to me, as well as at myself for clicking on them to see how cringey they are, then seeing the number of likes and positive comments at the top. Even with a large number of downvotes, positive comments rank.

I’m speaking at @wordcampmiami in a couple of weeks. Come see me and 50+ other speakers, get food, network, and have some fun. Get a weekend ticket before the t-shirt deadline!

Every time I see an interesting job posting from @EFF@twitter.com I'm annoyed when I'm reminded that an internet-based non-profit focused on digital rights and holding tech companies accountable only has jobs on-site in San Francisco, home of tech hyperinflation.

When are we getting a Domino movie again?

Join myself, @marktimemedia@twitter.com @jcasabona@twitter.com, @andreazoellner@twitter.com, and more for @wordcampmiami@twitter.com next month! Thank you for having me to speak and thank you for your support @SiteGround@twitter.com! 2019.miami.wordcamp.org/2019/0

I've spent lots of time thinking about note taking, but not as much as @jcasabona@twitter.com. I'd love to have one app that handles all of my needs, like @JosephHHoward@twitter.com suggested.

My @gmail@twitter.com account has been locked down for unusual activity after I accidentally refreshed a few times quickly. But the "for help with this issue, click here" link takes me to a form where "Google locked my account" is not an option. Instead all options are user error.

I spent part of the morning testing and updating one of my plugins in the WordPress repository. I then pushed my changes, checked my email, and saw that I'd just received the reminder to test and update against v5.1. Derp.

Privacy is not a science, it is a human right

ar.al/2019/02/14/privacy-is-no

My response to a dangerous turd of an article by Bart van der Sloot (co-founder of Amsterdam Privacy Week – sponsored by Palantir and Google – and docent teaching “Privacy and Big Data” at Tilburg University)

Mr. Sloot attempts to reframe privacy as a “science” and shame those who work to protect it for having a “pro-privacy agenda” & not being “neutral”. He also calls for “new rules” to disallow such biased behaviour.

I wrote a tutorial on how to remove the @studiopress@twitter.com Genesis SEO settings from your site if you're not using them.

In these divisive times, there is one cause that can unite us all:

Bottles of thick liquids should be flat and wide on top so you can store them upside down when they start running low.

A more realistic outcome would be a backlash against Apple, with users jumping ship to Android, so they "won't have a company controlling what they see". - "Maybe Only Tim Cook Can Fix Facebook's Privacy Problem" - @kevinroose@twitter.com link.medium.com/INYPbMnJdU

I figured I wasn't starting the day out frustrated enough, so I decided to read a Quora thread with responses on why poor people are poor. Now I'm sharing that here because like all of those people I have opinions.

I just got two spam emails from a company offering to sell me contact information for local companies that use @Evernote@twitter.com.

Besides being unwanted sales emails, I have no interest in getting targeted data from third parties to send unwanted sales emails to others.

This is cool: try out fonts made for programming interfaces with a single click, instead of having to download, install, and activate a bunch of fonts until you find the one that works for you.

I just listened to the newest @thewpbuffs@twitter.com WPMRR Podcast episodes with @jenniferbourn@twitter.com and @marktimemedia@twitter.com. I keep learning more and more things to apply to my business. If you haven't checked it out, give it a listen! wpmrr.com/podcast/
