Stockholm COVID-19 wastewater numbers are worst they have been since the omicron outbreak. No one seems to care.

At my dentist in Stockholm and I swear this whole waiting room is coughing. I’m masked, but no one else is.

Andy, Matty, Denis, and Cody kept me moving and safely working out at home in 2022. My Peloton year in review.

@civicunrest on APIs transforming govt:

• City govts all do similar things, but tools/practices vary greatly for no good reason. They reinvent because there hasn’t been a better way.
• Most govt APIs so far focused on exposing data, not capabilities
• Legislation, internal needs and policies, and product innovation (competing with private sector) are changing this!
• Early progress in cooperatively built/maintained software, investment in open source components, and data standards

Scaling is the new API challenge for banking-as-a-service.

“‘Embedded finance’ will lead to more hypermedia style APIs.” —John Phenix, Lead API, Integration and BaaS Architect at HSBC

Embedding a bank’s UI into a partner app does not feel seamlessly integrated.

Getting partner to write complex UIs negates the ease of working with a banking partner.

A partner rendering its own UI based on the bank’s logic is the winning solution for best end UX and low integration effort.

The data and API governance practices described at L'Oréal seem more mature than anything I saw at Spotify and Stripe. I took a photo of nearly every slide they presented. So much great stuff.

🤯 @mamund has connected humanity, technology, history, and the future masterfully in every talk I have ever heard him give.

It’s been way too long since I have gotten to see Mehdi Medjaoui on a stage and asking questions.

(Feel free to mute me or this hashtag for the next 2 days.)

Shout out to Lizzo, Rina Sawayama, Nils Hoffmann, and P!nk for making my 2022.

Whoever you love
However you identify
This flag can be for you.

I have yet to meet a queer person who—years later—regretted coming out, however difficult it might have been initially.

I new to caring for euphorbia. I watered almost a week ago. Today, I noticed this brown streak. It's been about 20–28℃ indoors in the last week. I don't know if it's too much or too little water. Lots, but not direct, of sunlight. Any help is much appreciated.

I’m going to need the cute cis-het allies to pin an A on their wardrobe for the next few days. Thank you for your compliance and not toying with our queer fantasies.
