Afternoon gang! I'm doing a talk tomorrow night. All about horrible Internet gadgets I've installed in my home. Free to attend. A splendid time is guaranteed for all.

I feel personally attacked by this tweet. I don't know how I'm going to continue to grow my wardrobe in a post-COVID world
My fiancé’s entire wardrobe is all tech “swag” that you get from conferences and joining new communities lol
