Now that I'm following so many women hackers Twitter has way less posturing about startups and technology and way more debugging of C code.
I’ve changed my support from Bernie to Hillary because I only trust one of those two with a complex legacy system:
"Computers don't get discouraged."
"Sure they do, it's called 'exponential backoff.'"
To those against vandalizing property as political expression: The U.S. has an entire white political movement named for the looting of tea.

Writes buggy software, always dances, is very enthusiastic about everything, and fights patriarchy not for women's sake but his own. https://t.co/47t6xCJqBV
