Finally refreshed my 🍏 Terminal colour theme. Not perfect but much better. http://ethanschoonover.com/solarized

Note: If you're on Lion+, you can just save the raw file from here as a .terminal file and just run it: https://github.com/altercation/solarized/blob/master/osx-terminal.app-colors-solarized/Solarized%20Dark%20ansi.terminal

One of the worst things a company can do is hire talented and passionate employees but block them from reaching their full potential.

On the flip side, one of the worst things an employee can do (who's not feeling fulfilled) is to stay.

I have a theory that I'm doing ok as a woman in tech since I've mostly been a free agent (eg. contract) since 2008.

ICYMI, many #womenintech don't leave b/c of "family". They leave b/c they get passed over for promotions. See: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1soIYek-YEIvqtu9brv3ecdPbuVzQKp_GhAozC06UrLo/preview

At my 1st job out of school, I learned I was getting paid $10K less than someone doing similar work. #neveragain
Re:@saraashleyo:
.@ThisTechGirl told a dude how much $ she was making. It changed her life. http://money.cnn.com/2015/04/15/smallbusiness/saadia-muzaffar-womens-circle/index.html #equalpay  

Downside of writing JS for hardware is a LOT of setTimeouts + callbacks as you wait for hardware to do its thing. No simple: delay(100);

Internal dialogue: 
"Hmmm.... that seems buggy"
"Let's add in another setTimeout()!"
"Yep, fixed it"

Always has to be that one condescending guy at a meetup, doesn't there. Thanks, jerk, right when I was leaving. Otherwise, perfect night.

My poor little G+ stream hasn't been getting much love lately. So I'm going to try posting "my week on Twitter" summaries each week and see how that goes.

From previous week:

Apr 6:
If you use Gmail filters+labels+categories, this query is so useful: in:inbox category:primary -label:"label to hide" -label:"hide this too"

Apr 6: 
Not being snarky but you know what would go well on a @ThePhysicalWeb beacon? A NFC sticker. Both technologies (BLE, NFC) have questionable device support so just combine both of them as fallback for each other. Seems silly that 2 complimentary technologies have been put in opposition of each other by some technologists and media.

Apr 7:
Going to call it now: the hot hot tech for 2015 is going to be the "smart desk clock".

Apr 8:
I just published "What’s inside a (Google)@ThePhysicalWeb BLE beacon?". https://medium.com/@pearlchen/what-s-inside-a-google-physical-web-ble-beacon-921835831d8f
