First complete (prototype) set of Cards Against Nerdfighteria. There are a lot of changes I’d like to make, but this seemed like a good stopping point for now. 75 question cards, 200 answer cards. Mostly nerdfighter related, though there are quite a few tangential ones.

COME TO THE NERDFIGHTER MEETUP AT LEAKYCON we’re gonna have a set and it’s gonna be awesome =D

Ann Friedman's Disapproval Matrix for handling criticism is a thing of genius, not to mention essential internet-age literacy. She explains:

Critics: These are smart people who know something about your field. They are taking a hard look at your work and are not loving it. You’ll probably want to listen to what they have to say, and make some adjustments to your work based on their thoughtful comments.
Lovers: These people are invested in you and are also giving you negative but rational feedback because they want you to improve. Listen to them, too.
Frenemies: Ooooh, this quadrant is tricky. These people really know how to hurt you, because they know you personally or know your work pretty well. But at the end of the day, their criticism is not actually about your work—it’s about you personally. And they aren’t actually interested in a productive conversation that will result in you becoming better at what you do. They just wanna undermine you. Dishonorable mention goes to The Hater Within, aka the irrational voice inside you that says you suck, which usually falls into this quadrant. Tell all of these fools to sit down and shut up.
Haters: This is your garden-variety, often anonymous troll who wants to tear down everything about you for no rational reason. Folks in this quadrant are easy to write off because they’re counterproductive and you don’t even know them. Ignore! Engaging won’t make you any better at what you do. And then rest easy, because having haters is proof your work is finding a wide audience and is sparking conversation. Own it.
The general rule of thumb? When you receive negative feedback that falls into one of the top two quadrants—from experts or people who care about you who are engaging with and rationally critiquing your work—you should probably take their comments to heart. When you receive negative feedback that falls into the bottom two quadrants, you should just let it roll off your back and just keep doin’ you.

Complement with Benjamin Franklin’s trick for neutralizing critics, Daniel Dennett on how to criticize with kindness, and Anne Lamott’s definitive manifesto for handling haters.

I love my parents but they just said the most sexist and racist thing I have ever heard. I want to scream and cry but I can’t do a thing about it because they will just make me feel worse for believing in equality. Kill me please.

PLATFORM 9, PLATFORM 10. Nothing in between.

Excuse me sir, can you tell me how to get to platform nine and three quarters?

Platform 9 and 3 quarters, there ain’t no such thing. You’re the 700th kid to ask me that today. I still refuse to believe that it exists.

We’re always thinking of Jackie O, done
and undone: gold-on-gold flash, the definition
of stealthily sexy, with an off-duty-jazz-dancer vibe
that I love. You can’t go wrong with pinky
beige and a sleek black dress, the nicest mix
of casual and fashiony, siren-worthy.
These arty slick…
