When you decide to spend just a little bit of time on your slide deck for a talk this week, and then realize it is 2:30am and you are not the least bit sleepy. 😳
On a related note, I am super excited to be speaking at WordPress Accessibility Day 2023 this week!

Listening to the Developer Hours talk on the #WordPress HTML API. This is super slick. https://wordpress.tv/2023/08/31/developer-hours-introduction-to-the-html-api/
PSA to update all your Apple ecosystem devices as soon as humanly possible today, the security patch is for a pretty severe 0-day exploit actively being used to compromise devices by threat actors right now https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT213905

@farktal Ditto. I end up not attending any sessions or put a session on in the background. I have similar issues with tuning into recordings after the fact. Why is prioritizing professional development so hard?!
#TIL you can add emoji to a folder name in the Chrome bookmarks toolbar and that is a game changer for me. (I need color and pictures to sort things.)
@sachagreif Loving the option to bookmark topics. There are many things in here that I have not heard of. I really appreciate that this is creating a "to-read" list for me. 👌🏼
@mackensen I like that! I really want to engage more here.
I'm a bit split between two worlds because I engage with both higher ed / web developer folks, and also kidlit / picture book authors.
This Mastodon space is great for finding a dev audience, but Twitter is still has a much more robust kidlit community (for now?). I'm thinking I might divide my engagement with each platform by "world".
My plan is to stay up super late tonight for the 1am #Artemis launch (I'm in EST), but it's only noon and I can barely keep my eyes open. This does not bode well.
Yup. I've been on Mastodon for a minute and decided to switch servers. I feel like this one fits better.
(I'm guessing this server is not a core audience for that last one, but it's a good chunk of my life.)
