Asking for a friend:

Anyone know a good employment lawyer in WA state who would work pro bono? I suspect that requiring someone to have a car for a single location desk job is not legal.

Now I am curious if any accounts identify with pronouns similar to my own, and how that handling works.

@rjl20 ? Anyone else?

Are there any other systems out there with a non-verbal headmate? If so, I'd love to hear how you deal with that, especially in social situations where people expect you to (be able to) talk.
I'm asking because I'd like to pick up a new hobby, which involves social interaction - and that involves talking. It's not the focus of the hobby, but people always want to talk.
Now I could of course just act like we are never able to speak. But I'd feel awkward about that, cause all others in this system are able to do so. But I also don't want to explain that we're a system and stuff.
Any ideas? Boosts welcome!

(The hobby is dancing btw. I'd like to start classes. Talking really isn't the focus, but people always expect that you're able to talk. Which is awkward on its own. Even more so if "you" are sometimes able to talk, at least in their eyes.)


Today is a special day!

Since it is both Friday the 13th and a full moon, the good and bad luck cancels out which makes it safe to play !

hat tip @0xabad1dea (who doesn't seem to be using that account, so really @0xabad1dea@twitter, but who's counting?)

Hey all,
Do people know of Senior or Lead positions at tech companies in Seattle or NYC that are not garbage? Just anywhere please get in touch with us. Thanks.

Can anyone recommend good orgs to donate to for Bahamas hurricane recovery? Strong preference for local groups and recommendations from people who live there or lived there recently.

You pick a phrase, you pick a rhyme, repeat the sound a second time.

Five iambs and then an extra beat will do ya.

Today's accomplishment: with the help of a bunch of grammar references, Google Translate, and squinting at my Language Drops collection, I've written a few sentences in to a stranger!

I've been trying to learn, very slowly, since May.

The stranger in question is my AirBNB host for my upcoming stay in San Francisco, who is bilingual. (I also included the English translation of what I intended to say, of course.)
