I do not understand how weight loss works! Maybe it's muscle I'm losing.
Usually I run or exercise every day. But I had surgery last week so I have been very lazy. Somehow I dropped several pounds.

Hey, #Austin techies. Got any opinion on whether Michael Dell should quit Trump's Manufacturing Council? I'd like to hear it.
 
He should immediately step down.

Hey, @Amazon. I finally signed up for Prime. I used my Roku to watch a Prime video. But I never was asked for password or login. (1/3)
 
So I scoured @Amazon to see if there was a record of the movie I watched via my Prime account and sure enough, there was. (2/3)
 
So my question for @Amazon is: How did y'all know who I was? Do you pull data from Roku somehow?

I was just looking over the results of my @512tech quiz on how common it is for tech startups to use Austin apartments as offices.
 
35% said it's very common, 15% said it happens but it's not common and most everyone else said I don't know.
 
I'd like to talk to other startups besides Bumble that work out of apartments. You can DM me or email me. My address is in my bio.
