There’s a lot going on in the next few weeks. Kind of stressful. I know I’ll get it all done, and probably nothing will explode, but… stressful.
I’m working on a long blog post discussing what’s going on with the PDC/tech/econ.dev. thing. It came out longer than I intended, and I still didn’t manage to cover everything I wanted to talk about, so I will probably need to write a follow up.
Also working on my Fun/Creepy presentation for Open Source Bridge. Drawing comics about Facebook terrorizing people is one way to get in the mood. The conference has a nice set of talks on Facebook, privacy, and looking at what information is exposed when we use the internet, all clustered at the end of Thursday. (And the whole schedule is up now, so you can browse for that or other sessions to attend.)
When I accidentally cleared my inbox a few weeks ago (where I’d been storing messages that were supposed to be reminders to respond to things, bad habit), with it went several emails I hadn’t responded to because they all had the same kinds of answers. So I wrote a FAQ. I don’t know if any of the people who sent those emails are reading this, but if you are, maybe the FAQ will help. (Though it probably won’t rescue the failed attempt to organize happy hour with ex-coworkers a year and a half ago. That’s a long while to wait. Sigh.)
Last week a friend mentioned that she’d been reading this blog on “destuckification” called The Fluent Self, so I took a look and started reading. I didn’t think I was feeling stuck, exactly, but it turned out to be exactly the sort of thing I need right now. So I want to recommend it to the rest of you in case it turns out to be what you’re needing too. In particular I like the parts about biggification and sovereignty.
Anyhow, that’s where I am right now. Drawing and thinking and trying to keep everything going along.
