10:20am and I'm on my third cup of hotel-room Nespresso coffee.

If you want to identify me at an XOXO event today, I'll be the one continually vibrating at subsonic frequencies.

Cameron Esposito delivering a killer (and insightful) XOXO keynote about creating her comedy special "Rape Jokes", so named because she wanted a survivor to have the number one result for that phrase on Google.

I'm in that there Portland! Spending a couple of hours lurking in my hotel VCing into some work meetings, but will be at the XOXO kickoff at 7. Woooo! :xoxo:

Great post about how we've worked to keep the scrappy startup spirit alive on the Dropbox Paper team as we've grown: medium.com/dropbox-design/how- (PS. We're hiring!)

Allow me some brief nationalistic pride in Scotland's women's national football team qualifying for next year's Women's World Cup. This is the first time a Scottish team has qualified for a World Cup since 1998. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Wow! Mike Capuano was my rep when I lived in Cambridge & Somerville, and I have a ton of respect for him. But I can't help but be impressed by the fact that Boston has (essentially) elected a black congresswoman today.

Getting more and more stoked to spend next weekend in Portland doing the XOXO thang. A good dose of creative energy is just what I need right now.

If you’re there and you see me, please say hello! I’m going to try and grab a stash of awesome (not-branded) Dropbox laptop stickers to bring and distribute.

Giddily excited to announce Dropbox’s IGNITE engineering apprenticeship program. A six month program at our SF HQ to give folks a first step in a software engineering career. I’m pouring a lot of energy into making this a tremendous opportunity to learn and grow, with plenty of hands-on mentorship and support.

We’re especially excited to find engineers from social groups that are underrepresented in our industry.

Got my first Playstation Platinum trophy, from Donut County. Only had to “cheat” and Google one achievement.
