I work at Heroku, where at least in theory, I write functional programs all day. I work from home, in Nevada, where my cats are. Sometimes I write about what I do all day, but more oftenI write about changing the culture around what I do all day.

"More women than men discuss sexism, and it is not because we find the topic more fun, entertaining, or enjoyable than men. It is because sexism gets in the way of our freedom. I blog about sexism in geek culture not because it’s my passion, but because it gets in the way of my passions. My struggle against my marginalization is not my hobby." -- Restructure!

I have a lot of acquaintances.
