Feeling so excited about my little triumph today in shipping a major update to FastScripts, but also aware of how privileged I am. I grew up poor at first, but then had all my needs met.

I’m white, male, straight, and cis, and even if I’m weird, every door was open to me.

Most people can’t choose to work on what they want to, because their situation demands that they work on what, or for whom, they have to.

I’m so lucky to have carved out the flexibility to captain my own ship, for now at least, and I’ll try not to take it for granted!
