I had "Coded Bias" on my DVR since it aired on PBS's Independent Lens on March 22, but I finally watched it yesterday. It was riveting and mind-blowing for me.

I'm also in awe of the work that Joy Buolamwini has done and just signed up for the Algorithmic Justice League!

Our 50th birthday is a month away and we're getting ready to celebrate!
We want you to join in the fun by taking a photo with a Flat Twin and signing up for a virtual challenge to walk or run a total of 5K, 50K, or 50 miles in the month of May to raise money for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer.
Thinking about Patty Workman and all the people in Charlottesville she had such a positive impact on ... she will be missed.
Looking forward to in-person long runs with the Charlottesville Track Club's Marathon and Half Marathon Training Program this summer/fall! Had fun designing a new icon based graphic representing the locations of group runs.
So proud to take part in Ragged Mountain Running Shop's Winter Mileage Club!
My 980.63 miles = $20 donation divided among these amazing nonprofit organizations!
- Rivanna Trails Foundation
- Piedmont Environmental Council
- Sauders Trail at Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello
- Botanical Garden of the Piedmont

I've had just a handful of job interviews in the past 20+ years so it's hard not to think I've bombed when maybe I'm just overanalyzing. I am grateful that with COVID-19 I've been able to have interviews over the phone or Google Meet so at least I'm in comfortable surroundings. :)
