Democracy Works is hiring software developers again: https://www.democracy.works/software-developer-2019
Join a fully remote team making US civic engagement easier. We're a woman- and gay-founded nonprofit, and promote an inclusive culture that stands against racism, sexism, homophobia, and ableism (to name a few).
2018 in books
The two best books I read were:
* Salvage the Bones –Jesmyn Ward
* If Beale Street Could Talk – James Baldwin
The most fun three books I read in a row must have been:
* The Handmaid's Tale – Margaret Atwood
* Frankenstein – Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
* The Left Hand of Darkness – Ursula K. Le Guin
Incredibly, I read three novels published this year:
* Asymmetry – Lisa Halliday
* There There – Tommy Orange
* The Golden State – Lydia Kiesling

The local timeline needs a link to "Justice For Sale" by Brittany Wald. It needs it right now and probably every few hours until we've all watched it.
