Or maybe you will end up in SF for a visit... stranger things have happened. :)
Kids are a big source of chaos and joy. Change is the only constant... Glad you are well.

More detail on 0.11.1 and 0.11.2 also in my post on the mailing list: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/ngmaterial/wQxAn286MCs
 
Angular Material v0.11.2 has been released!

We are now building bug PATCH releases each week; available for bower and npm updates.

These will not include new features or general Pull Request merges. Those types of changes will be released with the next major release.

Meanwhile master will remain our development branch and will reflect the current code functionality and will contain both bug fixes and PR merges.

Laverne Cox is beautiful. 
I deeply admire her for seeking out her own truth, and for speaking up about the complicated intersection of gender and beauty. Love this interview in the Guardian. 
The ‘transgender black chick from Alabama’ talks about her tough childhood, balancing activism with acting and why she loves her Orange is the New Black character Sophia

I also have lots of love for this woman. I've had the opportunity to meet with her in person a couple of times after I worked on custom gender at Facebook.

Shout-out to the amazing Laura Palmaro and the many folks working to make Google products more accessible. I'm excited about the Impact Challenge program to fund more research into innovation that supports greater independence for people with disabilities.

Angular Material 0.7.1 is out
Short update: Our Themes API is solid. We've improved the doc site (with bonus Getting Started section and an example starter app). Many bugfixes small and large, and the groundwork laid for new components -- coming soon in 0.8.

Naomi, do you know if there are plans to integrate Material into the Ionic Framework?

Really enjoyed this thoughtful piece from Ryan Park about  the importance and challenges and joys of being a stay-at-home dad. I wish this wasn't such an unusual thing for men to do in this country.

+Marcy Sutton is one of the superheroic developers I've got to know better through Angular. Her contributions to Angular's ngAria and our Angular Material components help developers to easily and effortlessly develop accessible web applications. I'll miss her on our weekly Angular Material syncs, but I'm excited about her new role at Adobe. Thanks, Marcy! :)
 
Today is my last day working full-time on Angular Material, as I'm joining Adobe as an accessibility engineer in early July (I'll still contribute to open source, but with a reduced presence). To recap what I've learned, I wrote one last post for the Substantial blog: http://substantial.com/blog/2015/6/4/working-on-a-large-open-source-framework/

The BBC have a wonderful two-part radio adaptation of Ursula K. Le Guin's The Left Hand of Darkness, up for a few more weeks.  It's marvelous.
Adapted by Judith AdamsScience fiction with incredible humanity from a brilliant feminist writer. This is the first dramatisation of Ursula Le Guin's 1969 novel which is as groundbreaking in its approach to gender as when it was first published over 45 years ago. In a snow-changed city in the middle of an Ice Age on an alien world, one young man prepares for the biggest mission of his life. Alone and unarmed, Genly Ai has been sent from Earth to ...

Ha. As I recall, 1886 was not such a great year for Nikolai Tesla. Coincidence?
The story actually begins in 1770, with one Richard Trevithick, engineer, being visited by a stranger swaddled in rags to obscure his face and the precise dimensions of his body. Plans for a steam-powered "road locomotive" are thrust into Richard's hands. "But... but these are far beyond current technology," Richard whispers, stunned. A voice issues from the rags, manically, too screechy to be completely human, the syllables incomplete, malfor...

Story
Tagline
Naomi loves transit too much.
Introduction
I have an unusual fondness for public transit and the intersection of language, ability, and culture. I like solving problems with technology. 

I work on AngularJS, and making the web more accessible to people with disabilities. I'm learning ASL.

I grew up in Canada. I've worked in three countries as an astronomer, tech writer, engineering manager, and technical program manager. I fight daleks in my spare time.
Bragging rights
I ride a bike and take transit to work. I speak six languages. (Some much better than others.) I like to cook.
