For the past seven years, everyone who has created an account on Twitter starts out with their default profile photo as an egg. This was a playful way to reference how eggs hatch into birds that send all the Tweets you see on Twitter!
Last weekend, I went on a quick but epic roadtrip with my youngest brother, Matt. On short notice I needed (and let’s be honest, wanted) someone to go with me to our New Mexico cabin (about a 9-hour drive each way) starting on Friday night and getting back on Sunday night.

SEO hacks continue to plague websites as attackers abuse SERP rankings for their own gain. The time and effort spent by the website owner creating content, optimizing pages and building links is stolen by an attacker in an instant.
Twitter has rolled out its new @-replies to me about three or four times now, ambushing me with its unspeakable badness on the iPhone app or web Twitter. Today it rolled out for everyone and it makes me want to throw all my devices at a wall.
Twitter rolled out a feature to not count usernames in replies. People reacted. Somehow, and I didn’t know I was doing it, but I started a terrible thing. I started a test to see just how awful this replies feature could be. People unfortunately ignored the “clever” aspect of this statement.
Earlier this week, we shared the technical breakdown of the work we did for Qpractice, including a run down of the extensive custom plugin development and functionality we added to the site.

Automattic’s mobile engineers released a major update to WordPress for Android this week. Last year the app’s users saw a growing disparity between the features available to self-hosted sites and those available to WordPress.com users.

There’s a grey area in dating many people get hung up on – a grey area where feelings are ambiguous or one person has stronger feelings than the other. This grey area causes real, tangible issues. As a man, a huge question is often whether to be persistent and continue pursuing a woman even when she seems lukewarm or hot/cold on your advances.
It’s been a few weeks since I’ve invited anyone to chat, but it isn’t due to lack of interest or effort on my part, and I’ve had several people ask what happened, so here goes. The truth is that I psyched myself out.
Men’s Rights Activists (or MRAs) are of the belief that they, as (mostly white) dudes, are marginalized in modern society and discriminated against unfairly. They believe that feminism is a threat to their very well-being, and their fragile egos are insulted by the mere suggestion that women might be deserving of equal opportunities in society.
Be afraid ….I’m so sorry

I rise blissfully at 4:30 am, thanks to my Tibetan singing bowl alarm clock. After 20 minutes of alternate nostril breathing, I start my day with a three-minute cold shower. This I follow with twenty minutes of stream-of-consciousness journaling, then another twenty minutes of gratitude journaling.

Great iconography taps into a universal language we all understand. Like the dove of peace or the red cross on hospitals, the very best of icons communicate thousands of words in a single graphic form. In much the same way, icons can augment a user interface.

The Trump Administration recently submitted a list of data categories it will collect for the 2020 Census and the American Community Survey (ACS). Although “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” were proposed subjects in the appendix, this morning’s version of the report excluded LGBTQ people from the list of subjects for the Census and ACS, which means that data collection for these subjects may have been in the works for an earlier version.
