In Amsterdam with friends, which was great. On social media lockdown because of nonsense, which wasn’t.
My friend Beryl passed away recently. She deserves a lot of credit for starting conversation about unconscious bias (a talk she gave). She also had many technical achievements and an international career. Most of all she was a lovely person and I will miss her.
iTunes Connect continues to be the bane of my existence. Working on the Technically Speaking anniversary.
Watching The Mindy Project. Still reading The Truth About Burnout. Read The Reinvention of Mimi Finnegan (meh) and now reading Everybody Rise which I’m also not particularly enjoying. Once I finish that though it will be No Novel November.
A new edition of Technically Speaking is out.
