We Read Too: A Central Resource for Books by People of Color

So much of our literature is authored by white people, written about white characters and intended for white audiences. My friend and soon to be Slack employee +Kaya Thomas has devoted effort to create an incredible resource of books with POC as main characters by authors of color. Kaya is an exceptional mind I am delighted to know, and I am more than happy to back this initiative. Join with me.

Your Steady Stream of Tech News Will Continue When Morale Improves
/via +louisgray.com

"I've already seen people yearn for the good old days when we could debate data portability, site aggregation, text editors, or even which mobile OS is the best.

Trump's Looming $100B+ Distraction and Productivity Crisis

Each year, American businesses are confronted with estimates that upwards of $2 to $4 billion in worker productivity is lost thanks to employee office pools around March Madness, the month-long college basketball championship tournament. Conventional wisdom has it that the tens of millions of players may physically check in to the office, but mentally are somewhere else, working at half speed, sapping dollars from their employer.

That single digit billion dollar gap is trivial compared to what the country has likely already seen after a year-long torture test of a presidential campaign, followed up with the looming tenure led by a person whose unpredictability and lack of respect for historical precedent, combined with a filter-free ability to share his half-formed thoughts with the world has everyone guessing what headline will flare up next.
