I’m a wire service for nonsense.
I wonder if clouds ever look down on us and say.. "Hey look! That one is shaped like an idiot!— Awesomeness !! (@AweShadySome) January 9, 2014

A tragic backstory to explain/excuse a man being an asshole isn't just lazy writing it's abuser 101. Stop feeding the sympathy for abusers.— Jeanne (@fangirlJeanne) July 23, 2015
Make "heroes" fully realized human beings. If they start out as rude or hostile, make them take responsibility for their actions and change!— Jeanne (@fangirlJeanne) July 23, 2015

We're awash in crap "web scale" ideas. Let's go back to human scale. Let's build things, communities, livelihoods, that are small again. (5)— dan sinker (@dansinker) July 22, 2015
"Web scale" had its chance, and it's by and large destroyed the web. So let's start over. Let's go back to me-and-you scale. (6)— dan sinker (@dansinker) July 22, 2015
The one thing I have learned at #oscon is that most people think that #webdev is necessary & many think that #web tools = a solved problem— Skyler Writes (@skyler) July 23, 2015
These climate mitigation measures we’ll all be banking on in a few decades are going to have to be pretty damn impressive, eh?— Alex Ingram (@nuttyxander) July 23, 2015
