Hi, I'm Sarah. I share my professional and personal selves here.
I'm a technical writer who specializes in developer documentation for OSS and co-wrote Docs for Developers. I collect art, bake, play RPGs, knit, and watch shows where boys kiss. I'm an aspiring Canadian immigrant in BC.
If you're here for technical docs, you'll wade through a lot of shipping, and vice versa.
I don't post smut, but I may boost yours.

More in bio.

Hi, I have to say I’m thrilled to have found this space! Like many, I found my way here because of all the nonsense going on in that other place. I’m an older guy recently exiting a career of 30 years in #healthcare and looking for what’s next. I grew up in an engineering family where math, science and self sufficiency mattered. After a long and circuitous route through #botany, #architecture, #building, and #business, I chose a second career in #Chinese medicine and #acupuncture. I specialized in #chronic pain, #orthopedics, and #neurological complaints. I’m a curious and open person by nature and love a friendly conversation. A few interest tags will give you an idea of what is rolling around inside this meat sack.
#astronomy, #physics, #neurophychology, #fungi, #sailing, #dachsunds, #fitness, #hiking, #photograpy, #poetry, #buddhism, #circadian biology, #nutrition, #enthnopharmacology, #environmentalism, #psychedelics, #longevity, #peace, #science fiction, #AI, #long now, #music
And oh so many other things. Cheers!
@andreiz Here is the book by Raubenheimer and Simpson about their hypothesis. A fun and interesting read.

Just learned more about a "year-long study of the dietary habits of 9,341 Australians" by ABS re-enforcing the #ProteinLeverageHypothesis, which claims that #ProteinHunger drives our #overeating as our body seeks to fulfill its #proteins need

"Creating the game was a collaborative effort with... a variety of sponsors, including its largest backer, Cadillac Fairview."
“At CF, real estate is our game. So it's only fitting"
It's Monopoly, but with higher rents and CF rules: first person to completely cover the map with empty high-rise condos wins, regardless of their debt! 😔
Also, if you stay in one place too long, or voice concerns about the rules, you go to jail.
@freemo I didn't come from Twitter but what drew me to the platform is one of the things driving migrants nuts. I like the servers have their own personalities. I love academics and intelligent banter so I've fallen in love with qoto immediately. Migrants seem to have an awkward adjustment to the idea of destination oriented posts and timelines. I think it's brilliant. But I still owe the migration credit cause I read about it in Reuters.
