Hey friends! Tomorrow is my 40th birthday. I would love to feel connected to all of you. If you are so inclined, here's my ask for Wednesday: Send me a photo of either something that delights you and/or something that reminds you of me. Reply, DM or email ck at christi3k dot net.

You can send a caption or explanation if you want, but it's not required.

What I'm going to do is make a collage of all the photos and print it out. It'll be a kind of collective birthday card, I suppose.

@christi3k Oh I think I figured it out.

Is anyone seeing 9’s instead of apostrophes/single quotes in toots? I am seeing this on Tootle. Not sure which character is the problematic one. It’s not consistent and I don’t know how to a non-smart single quote on iOS to compare.

Still thinking about Gerv’s death and the legacy of problematic community members. I was distracted for a bit by that home owner equity options thing but then I saw Mitchell Baker’s post about him.

Have been trying to shoot a flying dragonfly for a while now. It has proven to be incredibly difficult, since the camera keeps focusing on the background. This one turned out fairly decent, though :) #photo #insect #dragonfly

Speaking of the Patreon problem... will you all send me payment links for indie tech folks who need support? I'm doing a round-up next week

Ok and we're going to do an article on funding alternatives and how they pencil out
