First time woken up by the baby, before she's even born! I woke up to the bed bouncing slightly but rhythmically, but it had ceased by the time I got an earplug out, so I just lay awake worrying whether E had had a seizure. Yay oncoming parenting!

CEO of dosomething.org was also inspirational; mission is to build belief in people that their efforts do matter, that there is hope for change for the good. Give them the rest of your money.

talks are amazing. Founder of vote.org talking about bringing out the black vote in Alabama and aligning the electorate with the population in 2017 senatorial election. Give them your money.

At Accelerate Good Global for the day. Quite different demographics to the usual tech conference: much broader age range, much better gender balance.

Now I just need to work out how to fancy up DNS. Sleep would have been better, but it's still nice having an occasion for pointless home network tinkering again.

Weird insomnia all night, so now I'm dysfunctionally tired, but at least my firewall logs are streaming from Unifi via syslog through MQTT into BigQuery?

I installed a smart thermostat!

By which I mean that our handyman sweated blood to route cable through walls and I just connected everything at both ends, and *still* broke a nail and stuff.

Also, how does a "smart" device not understand the concept of registering multiple users?

Just tried to sing a 5-year-old to sleep with David Bowie. It's never too soon to start, on the one hand, but on the other...

A slowly increasing number of friends have switched to tinyletter for something like semi-private blogging. I'm not totally convinced, but... maybe? An unindexable blog may have more appeal these days? Is having to subscribe just enough of a barrier to keep away the griefers and trolls?

Despite having very functional DSL from Sonic I just ordered Comcast cable, and now I feel slightly unclean :(
