I don’t really have much to report this week. I’ve gotten back into the flow of writing some code for a new WordPress project. I’ve started building a new version of the FixUpFox website so that I can prepare for a new set of processes and client onboarding. I’ve got designing a new personal site on my todo list.
I’ll keep it short then, and just leave you with one question: do you have any personal projects that you are working on that you want to share? How about anything that you’d want me to share with others here?

What could the world look like if we didn’t need surgery to be seen as we are? How about the quality of our lives without the pressure to adhere to binaries? What if breasts were not an indication of a certain gender? There are men with large chests and women without. I have quit chasing euro-centric beauty standards of thinness. It’s exhausting. That life made me feel caged and unwell. Chasing the gender binary is a trap. I want liberation from that cage as well. I don’t fit into that box and I’m sick of fighting myself about it!

This Toy illegally Spied on 6.4 Million Children
It’s pretty impressive how badly VTech screwed up. It’s not surprising how much attention is turned to punishing the coder who discovered the vulnerability and reported it with zero expectation of pay to get it fixed.
If you made it this far, why not share this newsletter with a friend? Or share with me some of the things that you found that you liked this week. Either way, I’m thrilled!
