"A white rectangle hung over the city, imparting the date to the men in the streets below. In the rusty light of the evening's sunset, the rectangle said: September 2."

My closest friends' wedding anniversary is on September 2. Somehow I never forget that date.

Apple's AirDrop is incredibly insecure in its default configuration. If you never use a communication feature, turn it off. You can always turn it back on.

Took a deep breath and clicked "Send" on a new article. Such is a writer's life.

Maybe I'll set aside all day Saturday to read reviews and comments on The Rings of Power once people actually see it. It should be more fun than the show itself and doesn't require a Prime subscription.

When people falsely claim words are slurs, their goal is power, not justice.

On Twitter, if a woke calls you a Nazi and you object, you're the one who gets punished.

Live at 11 AM EST today, August 19: "Stand with Salman: Defend the Freedom to Write."

A -themed, SF-themed post on my blog today: The Lady of the Artilects and Oghenechovwe Donald Ekpeki (whose name I may someday learn to spell without pasting).

"Am I allowed to write about...?"
