Here is the final set of tweets I thought were worth collecting. More than anything, it reminds me how much of a visual creature I am. And yes, there is one overtly political tweet in among the others.

Here is the second installment of my list of memorable tweets from last year. I didn’t include any of the memorial tweets attached to the many cultural figures who died during the year because I figure they are collected elsewhere anyway. These are just snapshots in the moment as they moved me.

While 2016 had some pretty awful things happen throughout, there were a number of aspects I will remember with some fondness. I went through my timeline and picked out some of the memorable ones. There were so many I’ll have to post this in installments. Thanks to all the people who made me think, who showed me something in a different way, or who had the impulse to go and actually do something.
It’s been years since I have worked at a place where I’ve had an office of my own. In fact, only two of the eight jobs I’ve had since finishing schools have featured this My first job teaching physics at a college was the only one where I had an actual room with bookshelves and a desk and a phone of my own. I also had a lab with benches and cupboards and could ask the departmental secretary and the departmental machinist for help.
I’m starting this personal blog as a successor to my previous blogs: * Heavy Heavy Water * Poor Poor Thing * Frabjous Times * evilHow * Worlds in the Upper Right Hand Corner I have some ideas of stashing some of my tech work here, links to my creative stuff, pointers to things I’ve found on the web, and other miscellaneous items. I have been on Twitter and Facebook and Pinterest and Linkedin for a while now, but it seems like social media has mostly resisted the idea of sharing content outside of their walled gardens.
