Politics is the working out of our shared life together and Policy is how we’ve chosen to organize that common life.

This definition by @realrobbell consistenly grounds me when I’m tempted to be cynical or faced with bad-faith arguments about when “politics” is appropriate

Friends, If you need a delightful diversion, considering this quintessential NPR article, written by my dear friend @DanielPWWood, about saving seeds and collard greens: npr.org/2022/04/24/1093167996/

Is there a enneagram type for someone who is easily overwhelmed by more than one slack channel?

Today I start work at @auditboard! I'm excited to working with my good buddy @mminkoff on some challenging @emberjs problems.

What if our COVID testing improved to the point where tissues could be our diagnostic tool? Tissue turns blue? You’ve got COVID! Or maybe less specific, if it turns blue you’re some sort of contagious and should mask up

Severance was an absolute blast. I loved the aesthetic vibes, the humor and it’s surprising sincerity. The mystery was a lot of fun and I loved how it ended. If they didn’t do a second season, I’d still be satisfied with how they wrapped it up.

Also, Dillian 🤌

I have not enjoyed a blog in a long time as much as I’ve enjoyed @dynomight7‘s dynomight.net/alcohol/

“Acquaintance is fate” is something never spoken by an introvert when talking to a complete stranger.

Rather than just blocking you outright, it presents you with the choice to proceed or not, it helps you choose how much time you want to spend and it does that in context to how much time you’ve already spent. Intention really is the perfect name for it

I’ve been using the Intention browser extension for a couple weeks now and it’s been the single most effective tool to keep my attention from drifting. I’m pretty sure I’ve tried them all!

Thanks @dayoneapp for creating thoughtful software that gives more than it takes.

I've been using @sprout_place all day to do a brainstorming session for product ideas. It's not only fun, but it's so dang fast. Neat!

Has anyone come come across a solid, good-faith debate about the pros and cons of vaccine passports? I’m most interested in the stance of folks who are pro-vaccine but against the passports.

I still miss the "What's Hot" functionality the @shauninman's FeedAFever. Does anyone know of a service that surfaces links that folks on twitter and my rss'ed sites are talking about?

Is eating a chocolate easter cross sacrilicious?
