Your ideas are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

Working out of my living room means anyone on a video call with me can see that the Christmas tree is still up.

If someone mentions it, I ask if they’re with the Christmas Police (because if they are, they have to tell me—that’s the law).

Cynicism is a theory of everything.

—Rutger Bregman

You need skin. Take good care of it. Don’t harm a hair of it. What would you do without it? Keep it clean. Soapy water every day will wash the dirt and smells away ’cause you need skin.

Reading Humankind: A Hopeful History by Rutger Bregman, translated by Elizabeth Manton and Erica Moore.

Very happy that @LeaVerou, @hober and @rhiaro have been elected to the @w3cTAG …and even happier that the shill from an ad-tech company failed.*

It’s like Boris Johnson’s government came up with the current mix of activities for Donald Trump:

Rule 1: You’re not allowed to post on Facebook or Instagram anymore.

Rule 2: You can still launch nuclear missiles.

I wonder how many of the white supremacists that stormed the Capitol building got their swag from Breitbart’s merchandising store, powered by @Shopify.

@Tobi, do you have any stats on that?

(Related: is attempting a coup “free speech”?)

Congratulations! Well deserved!

Seeing out 2020 in style.

Myself and @wordridden have been watching all the Marvel movies (in timeline order) over the holidays and we’re almost done.

Tonight we will start watching Avengers: Infinity war at 9:48:54pm so that Thanos’s snap happens at midnight.
