TIL: Today I Learned

I set up a TiddlyWiki on Glitch for myself after watching a talk on the Zettelkasten method of taking notes.

I kicked off a new weekly “development diary” series on Dev.to today.

I was invited to chat with Anil Dash about tech and self-care on the Function podcast’s season 2 kickoff. Function examines the intersection of tech and culture, and I’m grateful to have been invited to share my thoughts.

Elsewhere on the web: Twilio guest posts

A couple of months ago, Glitch CEO Anil Dash got to interview Mindy Kaling at Twilio’s SIGNAL conference. We built an app that let people text in their questions for Mindy, and it added a lot of fun interactivity to their chat!
