@doug Hm, schools? Are they implicitly saying that because bullying in schools exists, it's the source of bullying online?

This is one of the funniest christmas traditions in Catalonia: Els Caganers! It's Christmas time and you start seeing figurines of anyone you can imagine taking a dump :D

@ekcragg @doug Not overthinking things is one of the hardest things for me to do, but I guess I got better with practice :D. I've also settled on mine!

@doug @ekcragg Actually I'm struggling between two options :/ On the one hand I want to have emojis of things I like (ramen, music, programming, philosophy, etc) but on the other hand I want to have a congruent set of emojis that represent something.

In a sense this is like when I had to decide on my signature, I ended up with writing my name and some random scribbles πŸ˜‚

@ekcragg @doug I've been postponing deciding on mine, I guess I should do it before the end of the year.

@adamprocter @doug I also enjoyed microcast 49 a lot. Actually after giving it some thought I wrote a "wall of text" answer. Would like to hear you guys' thoughts on that :)

@doug @adamprocter Actually I'm not sure they really serve the same purpose. I think slack is geared more towards real-time communication, whereas this sits between async/real-time :)

My name is Noel and I'm a developer/entrepreneur based in Barcelona, Spain.

I was within the "silicon valley hamster wheel" mentality for a while but I've realized it's not what I want to do with my life, so I am now working and looking for opportunities that are more sustainable and focus on what I'm passionate about: Open Source, Privacy, etc.

You can find more about me in my website and keep up with what I'm doing on my "now" page: noeldemartin.com

Hello there! Nice to meet you fellow Thought Shrapnelrs.

What better place to confess that for months I read "Thought Shrapnel" as "Thought Sharpnel". Yeah I'm not a native english speaker, and I thought it meant something to "sharpen your mind", and that's why the regular bite-sized updates πŸ˜‚
