I tried to be good and not stop for a mocha on Boston Ave, but I'm just not very Tamper-resistant.

It looks a lot better when it's 15 degrees out and you have to wait 20 minutes for a bus.

You guys know anyone who's running a Diaspora pod? I think it's time for me to kick the tires and see what I think.

Thank you, Scott! I was at the Uptime chart, a little overwhelmed by the size, flatness, and European-centric distribution of the table, when it occurred to me I might well know someone who knows someone.

Also good beer, and an excellent coat check volunteer.

Yesterday I made beef empanadas totally from scratch, and they were pretty damn good. Today I am spending entirely too much time mulling other cool empanada fillings.

I do the vodka thing, too, it's pretty great. 

+Martin Hunter makes great empanadas, and has cool filling ideas. My fav is this corn one he does.

#thatothershirt has launched, added a broader size range, and doubled its fundraising target in  the last 48 hours.

Check it out and pass the word on!
Love science? Want to wear a shirt covered in women? How about a shirt covered in some of the most notable women in STEM!

Hey sciency feminismy people!

This is a cool, positive project I'm excited about, that sprang out of the #shirtstorm mess:
The thumbnail image you see below is That Shirt hacked to be portraits of great female scientists. The creator of the image posted it to Twitter on a lark, and got so many calls for it to become a real shirt that she is now scrambling to make it happen.

She isn't taking preorders yet, but she is asking for help finding CC or PD images of scientists she wants to include. The list is here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/13dlr3aAn4mzH1qNHjZ8KZMbCN3zCBDjoTfhfvM50UXk/edit

I kind of love this a lot, but who is it? The Google doc is read-only so it's not really a useful place to submit feedback. (Edit: oh MAYBE THE LINK YOU POSTED WOULD HELP)

Well crap, how did that happen? The fundraising ride +P.M. Holcomb and Horatio and I are doing somehow went from being months and months away to being TWO WEEKS OFF when I wasn't looking.  Have a look at Horatio's thoughtful and articulate essay about the undertaking and consider donating or resharing.

A zillion thanks to +Ericka Crouse who has already done both!

Then again, try to avoid alcohol when jet lag may be an issue. It makes it worse.

There is a  House on Boston Ave
That sells you Danish Pastry.
They've been the ruin of many a poor boy.
On the other hand, they sure are tasty.
