Four Quartets

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2014 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Four sets of four:

  1. Leah Steinberg's Hacker School diary, in illustrated form: 1, 2, 3, 4.

  2. "Four Search Requests, Presented In Descending Order Of Politeness."

  3. Surprises, failures, jokes, and disorientations.

  4. New York, Montreal, San Francisco, New York. (I've been away from home, presenting at PyCon and getting information from colleagues at the Wikimedia Foundation -- then home to work with the new skills I've absorbed. Perhaps I have finally found a rhythm for my life.)
