I’m just South and slightly West of the Wilson Observatory which is at the top of the mountain just above our house. Fortunately we’re not in any of the preliminary evacuation zones which are all immediately South of the fire. We won’t really need to worry heavily unless it gets closer to the observatory.

Zoom 4x4 grid of party attendees including two with ukeleles!

I had a great time tonight with an awesome crowd of creatives at the online Zoom pre-party for IndieWebCamp West. If tonight’s turn out is any indicator, we’re going to have a lot of fun and learn a lot this weekend.

My favorite idea of the night, hopefully coming soon: HTML6, the <login> tag!
