About Thursday

I registered this domain name in 2006. I’d already been writing online for about three years at that point — I had a Blogger account! and a LiveJournal! and a GeoCities page! — and I’ve been writing here ever since.

The topics have evolved alongside my work as a writer and as a community member. I expect that they’ll continue to do so in the future. I’m always fascinated by community governance, technology, and creativity, but how exactly those topics play out in my own work is subject to change.

Things I’ve done I’m particularly proud of:

  • Worked with the Portland GDC to support almost 1,000 protestors facing legal charges stemming from the George Floyd protests
  • Wrote articles appearing in Entrepreneur Magazine and Bitch Magazine in back-to-back months
  • Lead soft skills workshops for Pyladies PDX, as well as launching a monthly technical blogging night
  • Won Portland Startup Weekend with a non-profit
