May 2021 in Review

In May I uploaded nine new pieces.

Most were vignettes from different periods of my life, from wrangling squirrels in Redwood City to the travails of women in Silicon Valley 7-Elevens to handling children who plead the insanity defense.

I also wrote Remembering A Mysterious Prince Among Dogs, about our dog Finn, who passed away this month.

I resurrected some of my work from my college years in Connecticut: a piece from the Yale Record about a young man who would fit in well in certain Facebook groups these days, and an installment from my tech support column.

I posted a piece about technology transfer in fantasy worlds — I write a lot about dwarves, apparently — and the rules for Necromantic Checkers.

Over on Twitter, I started a thread of resources on nerd culture problems.
