About

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.
