Congratulations to Katie Bouman to whom we owe the first photograph of a black hole ever. Not seeing her name circulate nearly enough in the press.

Amazing work. And here’s to more women in science (getting their credit and being remembered in history) 💥🔥☄️

A few us, including @samfirke and @dzombak, maintain it. If you are interested in helping keep it up to date, let us know.

The Ann Arbor Townie Calendar is a thing that has a number of important dates on it, including home football games, art fair, the car show, and other things that are useful to know. You can subscribe to it here calendar.google.com/calendar?c

The reason Apple added systemwide dark mode to macOS before/instead of iOS is such a mystery to me.

There's huge demand for it, and it should be easier: the fact that apps are (mostly; iPad slightly complicates it) full screen would eliminate the problem of some applications/documents having bright white backgrounds in an overall dark interface. On an iPhone, the screen can be all-or-nothing dark since it's displaying a single app/document.
