Good folks, nice place to work.

I had a nice chat with Chris Johnson, the author of A Better Life. His book is about finding meaning and joy in a life without god, so naturally we talked about atheism and belief. But we also wandered through politics and pretty much any other untouchable subject.
Not sure how much he wound up editing out of the podcast but it's a pretty open and wide ranging tour of my beliefs. Enjoy.
Or support his work through:
This is the best thing I've seen about the Dakota Access Pipeline.
In a nutshell, I feel like even if someone doesn't believe in climate change or doesn't support a transition away from fossil fuels or doesn't even support clean water they should at least stand in support of basic fairness.
If the original proposed pipeline was rerouted to avoid contaminating Bismarck's water supply it's certainly not fair to dump that burden onto the local indigenous communities.
I'm opposed to any new pipeline infrastructure on many grounds, but I feel like this map makes it clear that there's a big double standard being applied.

This year's list of National Geographic Adventurers of the Year is as inspiring as ever.
Particularly stoked to see Colin Haley [who's guided me up many of the most amazing features in Patagonia] and Ashima Shiraishi [who's just amazing!] on the list, though that might just be because I'm partial to rock climbers.
Pretty impressive group of folks - check it out and vote.
I just started to write a post about my friend Mikey Schaefer's photo print sale [he's donating all sales to environmental nonprofits for the weekend].
But then I got sidetracked looking at the amazing photos on his website and spent half an hour ordering potential christmas gifts.
At least now I can feel legit about promoting his website - it's good enough that I ordered a bunch of prints! And for this weekend it's all going to protecting the environment.
