Welcome to our last e-mail of the Obama admistration... (Thank you, Mr. President.) Seems fitting that it's also on Dr. Martin Luther King Day. I've been thinking a lot lately about role models and how who we see in which roles shape our perception of what's possible. My hope is that Barack Obama inspired a wave of people whose sheer presence in politics changes the game and who gets spoken for.
We'll need their courage and conviction to be reinforced over the next four years, because things are about to get real, and probably ugly.
I'll be honest. I find it really difficult to balance the "OMG, WE MIGHT HAVE A RUSSIAN PLANT WITH HIS FINGER ON THE BUTTON" with "I'm going to need to come into work on Monday if I want to keep getting a paycheck."
I think this is going to be a chaotic year--and that this administration is going to deteriorate rapidly into complete ineffectiveness. He'll layer lie and misdirection on top of lie and misdirection, and very quickly it will become obvious that he simply isn't capable of following through on anything. At some point, I think his supporters will grow tired of him--and it will be obvious that he's in over his head. He'll resign in a flurry of blame and accusations.
Then, we'll have to pick up the work of defending civil liberties from people actually competent enough to remove them, which might be even worse. I think we'll look back on the Pence years as the worst part of the equation.
Whatever happens, we can't forget to look out for those our government is too insensitive or distracted to care for. What we do at local and state elections will count for more than it ever has before. In encourage all of you to register to vote locally and start caring a lot about who carries out your local government.
We also need our companies to protect and uphold rights that they may not be mandated to follow by law, but they should because it's just the right thing to do.
Good luck to all of us. We're going to need it.
There will be a screening and discussion of Hidden Figures tonight that I highly encourage you to attend. The movie was fantastic and a story that should be told.

Today's media landscape has embraced digital as the preferred form of content distribution. This talk explores the powerful impact that the design of creation tools can have on that content, affecting the experience of both creators and consumers alike. As an editorial tools designer at BuzzFeed, I have the great privilege of working beside innovative authors, producers, and illustrators every day. They transform their ideas into digital content within a suite of tools, which, for better or for worse, inevitably influences the end product. We often focus our efforts on addressing the needs of our direct user, the creator, by improving the usability of tools like our CMS. However, we must also carefully consider the larger role we have in shaping an experience for our user’s user, the consumer. From internal to consumer-facing products, many of us are designing systems that help people make things – whether that means writing a blog post, publishing a product listing, or a crafting a fundraising campaign. In the case of authoring digital content, I'll explain how the design decisions we make for tools can help improve the output that those tools produce.

Applicative functors are an abstraction similar to Monad that is less powerful on its own, but permits static analysis. Monads are inherently sequential, and require computations to complete fully before doing the next step. Applicatives, however, have no such restriction, and can be used for static analysis. This enables a wide range of applications, such as concurrency, query batching, or even extracting grammar descriptions from parsers. This talk will demonstrate the strengths and weaknesses of Applicative functors, and a few of their many applications. Will Fancher is a software engineer in Manhattan, NY. He currently works at Wrinkl Inc., developing full stack Haskell applications. He has contributed a variety of open source code to the Haskell ecosystem.
