So you can take the Portland Aerial Tram up to the OSHU complex near Stonehenge radio tower, which I knew, but what I *didn't* know is you can veer right as soon as you get off the tram and walk along an AMAZING patio area that overlooks the whole frickin' Willamette Valley/Portland area—cafe tables and all.

Working with D3 to make research on blockchains, their economics, their algorithms more accessible.
Interactions with visualisations provide interfaces to the complex systems supporting blockchains. Here is one example! https://hackingresear.ch/cbc-inspector/
More generally, I am interested in using data and interfaces to communicate research in an empowering way. This is both social and visual :)
Looking forward to more great content here!

For my next DIY project, I successfully made my own cold brew coffee this weekend. ☕️
It turns out it's not rocket science, and coincidentally, the coffee shop markup on cold brew is insane. I mean, it takes less energy and is way easier to make than hot-brewed coffee, so it should actually cost less. 🙂
Hey Mastodon admins: Anyone have ideas on how to direct people to my donate links? See my post: https://discourse.joinmastodon.org/t/insert-custom-text-in-web-ui/2036
Happy independence day (for those in the US)!
