I should do a #reintroduction, since last time was on my old instance.
I’m GB. I’m a UX designer in Austin. I’ve been designing software/web products and services for ~20 years (I started early). I’m an advocate for inclusive design and #a11y, and I barely talk about work here, but always up for shop talk.
I’m cis he/him, but I love the shit out of all y’all. I’m a dad, hubby, and subject to the true rulers, our 2 cats. I’m into fancy tea, weird music, and you.
After a day of faking it so my lil girl could enjoy her birthday, I feel so exhausted and alone/confused. I’m soo far away from my siblings, and my sister is so alone and dealing with kids, apparently avoiding dealing with the next steps. I need to go to her, but my wife has surgery this week and I don’t know how my work will flex with all this.
What a total clusterfuck of life and death. All I can do is hold on to my kid and stay calm.

How is it I’ve never seen the video for Girlfriend by Matthew Sweet until right now? And it’s… what the fuck is this? This is seriously what he went with for the video of his only hit?
I’m so excited for Mike’s book.
“Welcome to Silicon Valley. A libertarian stronghold at the very end of America. (Literally.) Silicon Valley, and specifically the venture capital firms of Silicon Valley, are mostly run by old white men who read Ayn Rand in high school, thought it was great, and never changed their minds. […] In the words of the late great Ann Richards, they were, ‘born on third base and think they hit a triple.’”
Hey hey, let’s eat the rich.
