As the temperatures rise, remember to check the asphalt if you are walking dogs as the heat can damage their beans (paws)!

Air temps around 75ºF/24ºC mean that the asphalt can be around 125ºF/51ºC. This temperature can cause skin damage and burn their feet.

Test by putting your hand on the asphalt / road before going on walks!

Today, in the USA, we celebrate our independence from a monarchy. May we maintain such independence.

I don't care what anyone says. It's awesome to see fediverse replies appear on a Meta property.

Considering Threads isn't even a year old, this is enormous progress over anything Twitter ever did.

Jack claims that "Twitter should have been a protocol", but here we're seeing interop being achieved as we live in breathe.

@thirstybear @plexus true that.

@elizayer yet another example of the heroic narrative and not admitting defeat. The danger of a centuries old narrative is when (not if) it will be misinterpreted

A major tell of organizational culture is what is considered a "successful" experiment:

Is an experiment successful when you get a clear result, no matter what that result is? Sign of a learning culture.

Is an experiment successful only when you get a result in the direction you wanted? Sign of not a learning culture.

@elizayer thanks for sharing this. I look forward to reading the paper. The Hero with a Thousand Faces is woven deep in western culture. I still look forward to and support other forms of leadership

I keep thinking about this paper from 2004.

The essential thesis is that empowering ("post-heroic") leadership is a gender-coded concept, and sexism will prevent its widespread adoption, despite demonstrable benefits.

20 years later, I really can't say she was wrong.

Before I enjoyed looking at people’s bookshelves to learn what is interesting to them. Now in online backgrounds, the bookshelf has become another billboard. Show your real bookshelf if you can.

@gdinwiddie that’s a very geeky dad joke that I just tried on my wife. She didn’t get it at first. I’ll work on my delivery.

Thanks for the laugh

When using Microsoft Word or Google Docs, don't just make text bigger and bolder to make it a heading. That will work for sighted users, but screen reader users will miss that and just hear it as normal paragraph text. Use actual heading styles, like level 1 through 6.

A lot of community tech events are having trouble with sponsorship revenue this year, if you are a company with a marketing budget there are plenty of opportunities to help out in a big way right now
