Hi! I'm Stephen. I have over a decade of experience in criminal justice, civil legal aid, government service delivery, and the role of data/technology in all of that. I've done litigation, research, tech projects, and organizing. Always trying to get better at all of it.

I also sometimes make music, go on hikes, go birdwatching, and hang out with my cat. I think that's basically it!

Today, like many days, I am thinking a LOT about Jane McAlevey's distinction between "organizers" and "activists," the difference between building energy or anger and building power

Coming up at 11: Is Twitter getting worse? We asked thousands of strangers who are already mad at you for no reason

Been perusing the incorrect tintin Tumblr where the "captain, it's wednesday" meme comes from and found this gem

Definitely get in touch if you do indigent-defense research or are interested in the subject. You can also get more regular updates on Twitter: twitter.com/IDRAcommunity

I'm still Board Secretary for the Indigent Defense Research Association, and I thought people might appreciate this recording of our June call with Sarah Duhart Clarke titled "Indigent Injustice: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of People’s Criminal Justice-Related Outcomes."

This article about making more sustainable clothing choices points out that by wearing a garment twice as many times as the average before discarding it, the environmental impact is lessened by 49%.

It goes on to say that it's hard to get numbers on what average is, but one survey estimates clothes get worn seven times. Looking at all the factors, I understand it. But thinking about how little 14 wears is, 7 hammers home the frantic pace of it all.

organizer training 

A nice little example from tonight's session: don't say "thank you for being here" when people come to a meeting. Say "it's good you're here, because this is how you win."

Just learned that Eric Barone made the whole soundtrack for "Stardew Valley" with stock sounds in Reason and a regular QWERTY keyboard (not a midi keyboard)
