So, April was indeed the smoldering crater I figured it would be. I'm back and hoping May will be slightly more sane. I'm still going to try to get the other two April posts written and done. They'll be about family and work mostly so will be f-locked. I think I've caught up on all the posts I didn't read last month but if you put out something you'd like me to see and I didn't comment on it please do leave me a link.

I'm stalled out on finishing my move to DW by the tag limit. Even their premium paid service is maxed at 2000 tags, which my music blogging has already exceeded. This means I can't put tags on any new posts I originate here. That's the last thing I need in order to shut down my LJ. I've written to DW support asking about this and we'll see what they say.

Project Social continues. We made it to a party this past weekend, despite both of us having a lot of inertia and household stress. Then we had people over for game on Sunday. This week will see a dinner with another couple who also need Adult Time and whom we only manage to see a few times a year. Then a date I've been looking forward to for several weeks and maybe a social gathering before SoS.

Next week has an Arisia Divheads meeting but nothing fun social. Likewise the week after that has Thing 1's birthday but no adult social. If you'd like to help alleviate some of this please let me know.

Political things continue to occupy a lot of my brain but not as much as to overwhelm other things. I'm awaiting delivery of a bumper sticker I designed for HIAS. If it comes out well I'll be submitting it to be included in their official line of merch, which is kind of neat. I continue to be concerned about the upsurge in hate and am still looking for a good political organization that I can volunteer with.

Porter Square Books is hosting a "how to get involved, how to volunteer" workshop at the end of this month that I plan to attend, assuming nothing more concrete to do has materialized before then. I'm trying to be mindful that this is a long-term effort but I still want to be doing more.

What are you guys doing to keep sane these days?

At my work conference this past week the conversation turned to getting information about... well, everything. I reeled off some of the list of things I know I can ask my friends about - cooking and enterprise software and cosmology and game design and gardening and preservation and economic theory and lots more I'm forgetting off the top of my head. My coworkers were suitably impressed but I don't consider myself to have all that diverse of a social circle.

For myself, I'm always pleased to (and spend time on Quora to) answer questions about intellectual property as well as design and user experience. I do UX for a living, and have for many years; I also used to blog on IP (mostly copyright) and consider myself a knowledgeable amateur. But I bet there's a lot you folk know that I don't know about.

So, dear readers, what are you happy to answer questions about?

Feel free to leave a comment here, or post an entry in your own journal talking about what you like to discuss and how you came to have this knowledge. I am ever curious.
