Alright, so, to be totally honest, we’ve been meaning to post about this for so long. But you know how it is! You think about something when you’re not at work and then you only remember it when you’re not working so then a few months later you remember at work but you’re super busy so you write it on a post-it but the post-it attracts other seemingly more pressing to-dos and eventually loses it’s sticking power…and you’re back at square one.
Yes – that whole explanation goes against one of if not the most beautiful things about this holiday, but like, let’s start small, ok?
Here at Reply All, we invented a holiday call Email Debt Forgiveness Day – a holiday to erase all the guilt that comes from being bad at email. If there’s an email response you’ve wanted to send but been too anxious to send, you can send it on May 31, without any apologies or explanations for all the time that has lapsed. It doesn’t matter how long it’s been. Just include a link to this explainer, the one you’re reading right now, so that your recipient knows what’s going on. Together, we can all make our inboxes less stressful.

Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
