RT @JamesBSumner@twitter.com: Yes, it was me who smuggled a large seabird into the plenary and launched it at the speaker's head with the words "Actually this is more of a cormorant than a question." I am to be considered for possible readmission to the society in 2038, which seems fair.
RT @crazyKiwiClare@twitter.com: Late night presentation writing leads to creative but crazy ideas...See you at iTx tomorrow 3:20am to find out what we are really working on right now. #ITx2018 #iTx #cacophonyDev #predatorfree2050
RT @firstname.lastname@example.org: Today as I was walking home after my run I saw a large lemon rolling down the hill. It kept rolling for about a quarter mile. And now you can see it, too.

RT @sturdyAlex@twitter.com: It’s a bold look from May this morning. Scalping your enemies and wearing the trophies is a barbaric practice, but in the case of Boris Johnson, I approve.
The performance numbers here are quite impressive. Some caveats and limitations though, but djb claims they can be mostly overcome with more development effort.
RT @firstname.lastname@example.org First release of djbsort: super-fast constant-time automatically verified AVX2 sorting code for int32 arrays. https://sorting.cr.yp.to (Next target is ARM NEON.) Verification starts with the #angr toolkit for symbolic execution, which in turn uses libVEX from Valgrind.
RT @crazyKiwiClare@twitter.com: A big shout out to our wonderful bespoke battery builder extraordinaire Chris Forne. Thanks for these little Li-ion beauties that mean we are now going battery powered at Cacophony. #cacophonyDev #predatorfree2050

RT @firstname.lastname@example.org: Things that happen in Silicon Valley and also the Soviet Union:
- waiting years to receive a car you ordered, to find that it's of poor workmanship and quality
- promises of colonizing the solar system while you toil in drudgery day in, day out

RT @email@example.com: Nice post about influx-spout by @firstname.lastname@example.org who has been instrumental in making it a solid piece of kit, handling all the countless billions of datapoints we throw at it without breaking a sweat. https://twitter.com/mjs0/status/1014468877546188800
Fascinating: https://opensource.com/article/18/7/career-move This is how one developer overcame "proprietary software pigeon hole regret" with open source. Or, if you're earlier in your career, you can avoid the regret altogether :)
I profoundly hate the US Health Care system. It considers you either as a cash cow or a fraudster, with no in-betweens. And it absolutely never treats you as a patient. It's a complete failure and, until properly and entirely rebuilt from the ground up, should remove the US from the list of developed countries. Period.
Tech lead at the Cacophony Project, among other things. Curious crafter of artisanal bits.
