It snuck up on me this year, but Ramadan Mubarak!

To me, this is especially important after the employment year we have all just had. The seriousness with which QL/Rocket has taken COVID-19's impact on our team and our city has been amazing. ❤

For those that know me, that I'm still here after nearly 5 years should be all the evidence you need that this place is pretty great to work...but if you needed more, here you go: @RocketCompanies just made #5 on the @FortuneMagazine list quickenloans.com/press-room/20

Time for a socially distant date night with my lovely wife. I really dig that Detroit is doing this to help keep folks coming downtown! Tonight, The Croods!

I'm unbelievably excited...a tattoo artist that I've been following for a long time hoping to get on their books has an opening and I've booked it!! I've been lucky to get some really great artists to mark me up <3

The "Shopping Cart Theory" as a test of your self-governance readiness got a lot of mileage over the last year (medium.com/be-unique/the-curio) but a much more visible barometer came this year: the simple mask.

It's an efficient "at-a-glance" tool to gauge someone's empathy and ability to self-govern...

Not wearing a mask? Completely lacking in empathy
Mask under their nose? Possible reserves of empathy...maybe
Mask wearer? Exceeds the bare minimum

COVID-19, positive 

I can now schedule a COVID vaccine through the City of Detroit at no cost! And so can anyone else who lives in the city and is age 16 or older!

Just got my first Bill Gates 5G Tracking chip installed. Quick, painless, and my understanding is that after the second shot in a few weeks I'll get way better cell reception.

But seriously, go get vaccinated.

If I can possibly manage it, I am planning on saying "I wish I had worked more" on my deathbed just so that nobody can ever again say "nobody has ever said they wished they worked more on their deathbed"...

The Snyder Cut: Much better handling of Cyborg and Steppenwolf, somewhat better sense of plot, much less of a sense of humor about itself, Superman is still way OP.

With heavy editing it could have been a good 3h movie, instead it's a fair-to-good 4h one.

Stayed up later than planned, but as it approached 2, I was like "no biggie, at 2 it'll roll back to 1 and I'll be okay."

Imagine my surprise a few minutes ago when the clock went from 1:59 to 3:00.

I'm great at time.

During a topic discussing AI/ML at work, I adore that we're dedicating significant focus to--as they put it--"putting a window on the black box" and preventing discriminatory AI/ML practice. Our commitment to makes me incredibly proud.

As part of a scavenger hunt for charity, I'm fundraising to support indigenous families losing their homes (to support the people, not...you know). For the next 24h, I'll match all donations to our fundraiser here charity.gofundme.com/o/en/camp up to 1k. Donate or share, please! Everything helps (and I'm doubling, so it helps twice!!)

Quotes from our meeting:
Me: "That's a can of gas with a guy standing next to it smoking, it's going up in flames at some point."
@bfarrugi : "That's load-bearing gas, Jer"

I'm a case and a slowly shipping graphics card away from my new VR rig so I can play Pistol Whip and Beat Saber in style!
