Here I post a mix of work-related stuff (all views my own), and random history geekery

I give blood ❤️, add ALT text to my images 🖼️, and make monthly donations to my instance host 💰

There's some new infrastructure for horseless carriages too, apparently. Didn't fancy joining them here

Not all finished but I can see what it's going to be. Good job, Leeds Council, and all the campaigners who hold the transport planners to account

Sunday morning cycle to check out the vast new cycle network that is opening to the north and east of Leeds. Lovely to see families using it to ride safely together

Good stuff from Ian here, getting out of the building to see how digital services work for staff in communities. Agree on the need to not impose "hospital" language and assumptions when the care is given in people's homes
