a cool thing about having contributors in distant timezones is that I wake up in the morning with a bunch of pull requests waiting for me like the shoemaker in the fairy tale

when you're talking about human behavior, the case would mark whether it was based on:
- first-hand observation
- friends-cousins-girlfriends-brother-hand observation

Pleased to report that @jomc and I are speaking at a free online event hosted by the Internet Archive and Library Futures on Apr 28.
