Don't do much public speaking at all these days. Remote Q&As, that's about it!

This is some class A reporting. The accounts of whole city areas turning into districts of mini hotels, and Airbnb's unsavory political lobbying efforts is 😮.

Whenever I hear Tesla fans defend Autopilot, I always think of Dick Jones, "he didn't hear the gun drop", and "I'm sure it's only a glitch... a temporary setback"

Bizarre comparison. Tesla is calling their system AUTOPILOT. There's nothing automatic or pilot about a system that'll kill you unless you are as mindful of the road as if you had not assistance.

Also, I'd like my self-driving software to be written by programmers who aren't working 80+ hour weeks in fear that they'll be terminated by their boss if they don't.

You're risking your life if you take your eyes or hands off the road when driving a Tesla with autopilot. And Elon's promises of just how close they are to letting drivers be "fully asleep while the car drives to the destination" is grossly irresponsible marketing nonsense.

Watch how an update to Tesla's autopilot software changed the behavior on one driver's common route from "isn't this cool!" to "omg I almost died". Talk about high criticality software updates.

Spoke with the fine folks at Owl Labs about calm, remote work and how to get there.

Good first step. But keep walking until targeted advertising is dismantled completely. (Which isn’t going to happen before legislators wake up to this abuse and bans the practice of targeting ads on personal information. Which they should!).

Explaining the how and why of Ruby on Rails. The basics of what it actually is, why it's different, and how I ended up creating it and working on it for nearly two decades.

New from 's lawyer: When Elon called the Thai-cave rescue explorer a "pedo guy," it was just an "imaginative, non-literal" insult based on "well-known, disclosed tropes about Thailand." Y'know, just some child-sex stereotyping from the head of a $50 billion company

Meetings Are Toxic! Also, that study isn't the only one showing cognitive impairment from CO2 accumulation. There are others. Spoke to the Basecamp crew about my personal findings on in-door air quality.
