“I’m a developer and designer. I love making cool stuff.”

I’ve also come to realize that I have an advantage that female newcomers don’t: I was here before the sexism moral panic started. When a dozen guys decide to drink and hack in someone’s hotel room, I get invited. They’ve known me for years, so I’m safe. New women, regardless of competence, don’t get invited unless I’m along. That’s a sexual harassment accusation waiting to happen, and no one will risk having 12 men alone with a single woman and booze. So the new ladies get left out.

Over the past couple years, I’ve traveled to some amazing places, and taken pretty neat photos. So far, they’ve been sitting on my computer, serving only my occasional enjoyment—hardly an appropriate fate.

Instead, I’ve decided to start slowing sharing these on here. Over the next few months, I’ll try to post the brief backlog of good photos taken in and around 2013.

This particular photo was taken in the summer of 2012, on a trip to Switzerland. It’s the Lac de Moiry, a glacier-fueled lake behind a dam.

From the “this guy is a genius” department: Bret Victor (of Inventing on Principle fame) presents his latest project. The prototype is at the intersection of data visualization and drawing, and introduces an entirely new approach to the topic. Well worth a watch.
