Seriously, stop announcing your conference's speaking lineups until you have a few women on the roster.
Shout-out to @Evernote and @plibin. I use Evernote every day for @Captivology. I have no idea how I could write a book without it.
Rejoice, SF! You’re no longer getting charged for parking on Sunday:
A great historical look at AIM, the instant messenger of my past, by @JasonAbbruzzese:
