30 mins ago in Rochester NY, rains parted at the golden hour of sunset during peak foliage to create the most magical rainbow-sunset-autumn combination I've seen. This is a thread of all the rainbow photos that followed from all over the area. For any who need magic about now.

Spent the morning exploring a Nazi WWII POW camp in Hamlin, NY outside of #Rochester. #ROC #WNY
The old main gate into the camp used to be guarded by a gun tower (there were several throughout the camp).
I was the only one in the camp. It was a little eerie. Riding out past the old main gate on my mountain bike I felt like Steve McQueen in the Great Escape.

I finally read Enrico Moretti's "The New Geography of Jobs" this week. It was better than I expected - both a good introduction to the topic and interesting details and research results that kept me engaged.
Stylistically, he does an impressive job hewing close to the research results while avoiding jargon and identification strategies. It's a clear, coherent narrative about city growth and decline, with lots of evidence at each step in the argument.
TL;DR: Industry clusters go through a life-cycle. A newborn technology is scattered. It coheres in 3 or 4 clusters, with stars, VCs, or other key factors as coordination points. Rapid employment, productivity, and wage growth follow.

Important news for Rochester Artists!!

Excited to announce that the #Rochester Planning Commission has just approved the first of its kind Live Work Space in a residential zone. This has been on the books since 2003, but has rarely been applied.... 1/6
and has the potential to serve as a launching pad program for artists/crafters/makers who desire to live, work and (legally) sell their wares ... all under one roof! 2/6
We feel this outside the box application of the current ordinance will help create more live/work spaces and retain existing spaces for artists in the city. Space, location, and real estate are all primary concerns for Rochester artists. 3/6

Aaaaand so ends the 4.5 years I spent at @girldevelopit. Lost access to my GDI email and Slack today (as planned) and I keep vacillating between excitement for the chance to apply myself to better causes and immense heartbreak, as this is not the way envisioned the end. A thread.
I'm super torn because a.) I've been stewing on this day a longggg time b.) I've recognized that my persistence doesn't always help c.) I'd rather pour my energy into positive, productive things instead. But there's unfinished business and I want to keep poking a bit longer.
The #gdistrike lives on in my eyes because it's possible to hold an org accountable from the outside and I'd like to maintain as much transparency as possible on the inner workings and failures. Members (and potentially future members) deserve to know the risks.
