I think. Sometimes, too much. So, I write:
In all WordPress sites comes a time, when one’s chosen theme stops being compatible with the latest version of WordPress. That time has unfortunately come, for this WordPress site… and so as I hustle to re-package everything in a lovely new theme, please excuse the borkage of ye broken site.
Good times with code, compatibility, and lotsa moving parts all holding hands to sing in sweet harmony! #sigh #fml
Last night I Tweeted an inside-voice thought identifying a panel of Obama For America tech-team folks speaking at PARC, as a “Boys Club”. I quickly found myself whomped upside the head by 3 of the guys involved, Tweeting back that they found my thought to be harsh, uninformed, and unfair. That my Tweet made assumptions about their character as individuals—that had I done my homework, I would feel differently.
This past weekend’s XOXO Festival changed my life. Ok, it probably didn’t, but the buoyancy I felt leaving Portland last weekend had me feeling otherwise. For now at least: it’s opened my eyes, lifted my spirits, inspired me to believe in ideas I’d been uncertain of, re-inspired me to believe in myself, and reminded me of all sortsa good I’d always “known” was there—but is so easy to loose sight of in the day-to-day.
