I know lots of people in tech who are relatively unaffected by the downturn so far. This is for you: Donate right now to an antiracism organization, to a street medic org, to a legal defense fund, to a bail fund, to a local news org you trust. Double however much you’re thinking.

Portland police are gassing their citizens indiscriminately.

My ability to compartmentalize was near but not quite at breaking point today. Not sure how people of color can cope. Thinking about that makes me angry, and anger is at least energy into the system.

“Engineers designed new sides for the sidewalk to help with wind resistance but didn’t take into account the EXTREME sound it creates when wind passes through it. The bridge sings crazy songs now it’s so trippy. It hurts the ears and unbearable it’s that loud.”
