Quick note about following this account: I'm not particularly secretive and do generally approve follow requests from strangers. But I do always make sure you neither appear to be a bot nor a troll. That does mean that if a very new account requests to follow me I'll often wait until I can actually see some sign of who you are before approving or denying the request. It's nothing personal.

Day 52. A particularly alive corner of my office, where I go to get away from the screen for a bit.

a friend of mine who spends a LOT of his time picking up plastic waste from parks, rivers, streets, etc. had a good idea. He decided to photograph the non biodegradable waste and tag companies on social media with it. So if he finds a plastic Subway cup, he tells Subway about it with the message "is this yours?" I dig this because it's not something that blames the consumer. It puts the blame where it belongs: on the producer.

The green on this graph shows where chlorophyll b absorbs (the type mostly used by plants). You can see it catches light in two places. Near 450nm (the blue end of the spectrum) and around 650nm (in the red).

The two lines show the wavelengths emitted by LED lights. Blue is cool white and red is warm white. Both have a spike in emission around chlorophyll's blue absorption and broad emission over the red absorption.

In other words, this is why houseplants like LED lighting!

Day 51. The tree of the Week is the tigertail spruce.

Juxtapose the fury white folks are throwing at AOC, Ms. Harris, Rep Omar, etc with the millions of dollars they are throwing at the latest round of old white guys that are going to run for POTUS.

Do you see it? Are you paying attention?

Hey, #accessibility/#a11y question:

Are the alternating backgrounds in the code here helpful? I thought that was only for tabular data, but does it also help with code listings?

Someone on Twitter mentioned that in some regions of Germany, a common idiom for whenever there's mist in the forest is "The foxes are making coffee", and thought the image was evocative enough for an illustration.

Well, I took the bait! 🦊☕
