“we blurred references to the President’s name on some posters, so as not to engage in current political controversy”

An inherently political action.

Yell when you post this month’s Bowie picture too - thanks :)

Here you go! This will go out in the This Week in the IndieWeb newsletter, too.

We had a good time at the second Homebrew Website Club San Diego meetup last night.

@SuzeShardlow It was great meeting you tonight. Here’s the details for IndieWebCamp London I mentioned. https://2020.indieweb.org/london

Looking forward to Homebrew Website Club San Diego tonight! @simon_prickett @artlung


gRegor Morrill gRegor Morrill on gregorlove.com:
Understandable. Next year we should have the meetups at least monthly, perhaps every two weeks, depending on interest and availability.

Hey Taylor, sorry for the short notice but we're having our second meetup tomorrow. I think we'll continue meeting monthly and I'll do a better job with advance notice next time!


Bookmarked: Troubleshooting Cross-Domain Tracking In Google Analytics

“There is no such thing as cross-domain traffic across Google Analytics properties” helped it click after a lot of trial and error. Unfortunately Google’s documentation on this does not point that out / implies you can use two properties.

This number is linked to the Warren campaign.

The warren creeps are resorting to some disgraceful tactics to try to smear Bernie.

The establishment is getting nervous.

I don't trust the anonymous reports on the 800notes site linking the number to Warren. They all appear quite new, posted after the screenshot was shared.

Agreed someone is trying to smear, though. Even if only by altering screenshots. I saw someone allege that.

What's the difference?

Transphobia is a range of negative attitudes and actions towards transgender people.

It is not how the targets of those attitudes and actions may feel about it.

Even if it was the latter, it's very diminishing to refer to it as hurt feelings. Transphobia has a body count.

Paul Duane Paul Duane on twitter.com:
All you can say is that Gervais hurts YOUR feelings, and perhaps those of your friends who have personally expressed it to you. That’s it. Stop putting all trans people in a box.

Why are you trying to reframe transphobia as "hurt feelings"?

Happy New Year from my couch. I was told I look cute so figured I’d share.

I’ve known for a while that I should talk to a therapist but kept putting it off because that first step seems so daunting.

Tonight I finally signed up for BetterHelp, an online service. It feels good to have taken even this tiny step.

Hi, Isha.

Just write, dammit.

Impeached on both articles!

I matched with someone on OkCupid that sounded promising and the profile even sounded like it was written by a real human, but then the profile vanished before I could even write an introduction.

Sorry to anyone who's just received a tonne of webmentions from me - I'm tweaking the way the sending works so there are a few new places you may see them come from

I noticed one from the /mf2 page on your site which surfaced a bug on my end. I need to handle mentions from feed pages better.
