This is largely an endeavor to stay off social media as much as possible. In the spring of 2020 so far (I’m writing this on May 2, 2020), I’ve spent a truly unpleasant amount of time on Twitter, though I guess it’s mostly in the service of trying to draw attention to an important cause. But I can’t take it anymore. It’s having an impact on my ability to think and my capacity for framing my arguments–I’d say even articulating my thoughts. I’m dropping out of that a bit. Not entirely, but enough to spend some in a different space where the noise of notifications and volume of outrage is all a little quieter, where I can still explore thoughts publicly.

It’s been years since I kept a blog, so we’ll see how this goes, and the direction the content takes. In the meantime, if you want to know more about me for whatever reason, check out callan.cc. Please note everything I say here and on Twitter is a reflection of my own views, not those of my employer. I use she/her/hers pronouns. The title of this blog is a reference to “A Design For Life” by Manic Street Preachers.
