“I will personally continue to advocate for equality for all people until my toes point up.”

That’s from Tim Cook’s “I’m Proud to be Gay” essay in BusinessWeek today. It’s beautiful, brave, and amazing, and I love that idea of fighting for something until your last breath, it’s a very Southern expression. Here’s to Tim’s toes not pointing up for many, many years to come.
WordCamp San Francisco, the original, starts tomorrow and the tweets are already starting to stream in. On Sunday at 11AM I will deliver my State of the Word address, our annual look at where we’ve been and the road ahead, and even if you can’t make it you can livestream the SoTW and the entire weekend for just $10 from the comfort of your own home. 16+ hours of WP entertainment for the price of one movie ticket!
