Eric Portis has written the best tutorial/explanation I’ve seen yet on implementing responsive images. I gave up on making responsive images when working on my portfolio because I couldn’t find consistent and understandable best practices. Now I may go back and try it again.

I watched the announcement for the DJI Inspire I drone and I was amazed. The drone itself is pretty awesome, but I think it’s the interplay between hardware and software that I’m truly amazed at. Managing positioning w/o GPS + on/off manual control is very tricky much less doing it in the air!
In addition, the software demoed from Pix4D is mind-boggling. To be able to capture images from a drone and generate a 3d model is crazy awesome. I love the present where these concepts are actually being brought to market!
Just attended a meeting promoting Women in the workplace and I’m annoyed at some poor messaging – leading to some feeling that men are excluded or contributing to the problem.

How can we affect change the world, when only half of it is invited or feels welcome to participate in the conversation? -Emma Watson
Hold sessions for skills needed by women but not “gender targeted”, all encouraged equally to participate
Highlight how gender inequality affects both men and women
Explain situations of gender stereotypes perpetuated by both men and women
“Women only” skill sessions
Highlight only gender problems that women face
Explain gender stereotypes perpetuated only by men

Someone can always do things better than me and I must learn to have the confidence to accept that. Acceptance means not being reckless and stubborn about my position but also not being frozen and submissive to the status quo.
For years I’ve struggled with my thoughts on community service but I think I finally have a question that I need to answer, “How do I want to contribute?”. I need to hold off the loudspeaker of news telling only problems and let myself decide on how to help on my own terms.
