Those who slept in the nude soon learned not to oversleep once workplaces introduced automatic teleporters as a commute-saving perk.

The urge to yell "I told you so" at certain people is so strong right now.

Why is it that phrase never, ever feels constructive in the moment in which it's most relevant?

Whenever I think about how much and what quality of work I could accomplish if people in the office would leave me alone long enough to actually *do work*, it just makes me want to cry with frustration.

If 20% of a group are harassers (evenly across genders), & the group has more men than women… then each woman gets 16x more bad experiences than each man.

The Petrie Multiplier: in a group where x% are bullies/harassers, the minority will feel it (x/100)^2 more.

This blog post has stuck with me through the years. I like the maths in it, & I like the conclusion that attacking sexism/racism etc doesn't have to be an attack on the majority.

Good blog about testing and graphics - what is a test suite you can maintain and gives you actionable results? bartwronski.com/2019/08/14/how

Nice to see git addressing some of command line complexities. "checkout" command is way complexicated, the new "switch" and "restore" make sense. github.blog/2019-08-16-highlig

Update: I finished it, and it's still just such a book. ♥️

Moving on to Parable of the Talents next, and very much looking forward to it.

"Are you magic?" the child asked
"What is your definition of magic?" the robot replied.
"Uhm... Things that can not be explained by science."
"Then I am not magic. But you are."
"Me?"
"All the best things of all you human people - curiosity, creativity, compassion - are magic."

Bought an old camera a few months back, discovered the previous owner had forgotten a roll of film in there. Got it developed and scanned, and it looks like these pics were taken in the 70s, then forgotten in the desert heat and super degraded. They're vaporwave as fuck.

I liked this article a lot:

“how to do nothing” by Jenny Odell link.medium.com/QKXFxynE1Y

It's about doing nothing, i.e. finding mental/emotional space in a relentless attention economy. It's very long. It's meandering and sometimes complex. But I think it was (and is) worth reading.

Cubicles: I make workspaces way less pleasant, by reducing privacy and making everyone's conversations audible to everyone else. But how can I completely destroy productivity?

Open office plans: I have an idea...

I'm having a "I want to quit the games industry" kind of day today. 😬

I just discovered the GitLens extension for VS Code and holy wow where has this been all my life <3

Toni Morrison, from a speech she gave in 1981. Gosh this seems relevant to just about any kind of creative work these days. thx @jomc

I see why a lot of artists are moving to Masto now

thank butts my music is at least slightly discoverable outside of me just talking about it on social media o_o

mild take: VS Code is unironically a good IDE. Atom felt like a hacked-together editor that was trying too hard, but comparing VS Code with, say, IntelliJ's memory use really puts things in perspective.

sure, it's nowhere close to where most IDEs are at, but it's only had a quarter of the time to develop those features. It's honestly impressive.

and I think this is unironically the one Electron app I won't shit on, because most IDEs with the features it has are way more memory-heavy than it.

Sometimes a book comes along that burrows so deep into your brain it becomes a permanent part of who you are.

I'm a good chunk of the way through Octavia Butler's "Parable of the Sower" and it was clear from page one that it is just such a book. ♥️
