Recovering math teacher. Engineering Manager at 1Password.
Sometimes I like to check the work of the spammers that end up in my Junk mailbox. I have a begrudging respect for joebilling
Today is the start of (virtual) AGConf 12 on a virtual space station instead of a cruise ship
That moment when you realize that the developers on the NHL app never expected a team to have a points percentage of less than 10% and sanitized the leading 0
I’m sure the Yotes would appreciate a .620 points percentage 🤣
1Password launched a Linux app for the first time earlier this year and to celebrate that everyone in the company got a mug! (And it includes a cheeky easter egg on the bottom)
We launched a fun feature in partnership with @Fastmail today!
Also I will take any excuse to buy a new vanity domain 🤣
A little end of the work week decompression
In some ways it seems like a small thing, but learning that my employer was making Juneteeth a global holiday felt important.
We want everyone at 1Password to have the opportunity to reflect and learn about racial inequality, so we’re making Juneteenth a paid holiday for our team of 400+ people, across the globe – our (virtual) offices will be closed on Friday, June 18, 2021. In an effort to educate and inspire action, we shared information on the history/heritage of the holiday and ways 1Password employees can make a difference in their communities.
It has been a decade since this experience and given the state of social media I cannot really say this person was wrong.

Bitcoin and other crypto currencies are the face of Silicon Valley’s hubris.
Poorly addressing problems that don’t really exist and crushing the environment to do so. All in the name of generating value for the early adopters, yet another form of gate keeping in tech. Twitter Source
Today we had a symmetric gigabit internet connection installed giving us far more up speed at home.
Jumping from 10Mbps to 1Gbps is exciting because it means we don’t have to worry about Zoom bandwidth and as a bonus I can also reliably run my own VPN
This xkcd is immediately one of my all time favourites
I still need to dig in to the details more but the Apple M1 announcement and the updated Mac Mini definitely seems like a candidate to replace my elderly 2012 Mac Mini as a home server at some point in the future
I am always astonished by how applying some artificial constraints to my regular work routine always leads to a surge in creativity. I am feeling pretty jazzed about work potential today.
Step one in my 2020 home backup strategy is complete. Drives acquired, now I just have to wait for the RAID enclosure.
This week marks 3 months at 1Password and last night I received a “swag” package. They definitely went all out.
