Hi, new people, I'm Emma. I'm a queer, trans non-binary woman (she/they,) amateur astronomer, and wife of @cynthia1960.

I get paid to help people make web browsers, and have cats, a lot of tiny computers, and I like cooking, hockey, indie pop, shoegaze, and post punk.

I'm helping make the all-online version of happen this year too.

The photo is Json, the youngest of our cats. They are extra, but I love them.

People should never be edge cases.

If your system fails because a person cannot hear sounds, your system is broken. If it fails because a person has no address, it’s broken. If it fails because their phone number comes from another country, it’s broken. If it fails because of all the reasons above, it’s still broken.

Edge cases happen, but human beings don’t deserve to find themselves in one.

People in England, you've got 25 days to opt out of your medical data being sold without your consent.

If you live in England and want to stop your GP data leaving your GP practice for purposes other than your direct care, it's just one form:

AstraZeneca’s total value (market cap) is $133B this means Jeff “fuck you and fuck the planet” Bezos can buy it with just 1/3 of his cash, give it all away, and still have $270B left over for his evil henchman plans.

Again: the only reason we have poverty, healthcare disparity, malnutrition, and worse, is because capitalism allows rich people to be isolated from the direct consequences of their wage theft.

We will not fix the planet without systemic revolution. But this one will be televised.

If it is aliens, are they going to slap the shit out of Elon Musk for appropriating Ian M. Banks socialist space operas?

The UFOs are just Chinese or Russian aircraft, right?

frustrating that people still hold the american university system in such Sacred Regard while not expecting it to push back against its expensive-ass vocational training role in society

Song of the day, St Vincent sings Lithium with Nirvana:

high quality built to the user wheelchairs should be free, and the fact that they are more expensive than anyone on disability is allowed to own in money is fucking absurd

new project: forking the linux kernel to change the path separator from '/' to '🥖'

if you aren't trans, and the only relationship you have to gender is physiological, anatomical, or based on experiences of oppression, there's a pretty good chance you have a hell of a lot in common with some nonbinary folks
