Grossed out by all the "resistance" accounts cheering the Greenwald charges. If you're reveling in the persecution of a journalist for exposing abuse and corruption, you're aligning yourself with fascism. It doesn't matter how many anti-Trump hashtags you put in your Twitter bio.

And yes, I realize that there are ecosystems where everything is kinda decided for you (Ember/Rails/etc.) and they've been doing this forever and that's what you love about them and it's about time other ecosystems catch up. I know I know :)

I'm in an important Ember core architecture meeting. And it just occurred to me that almost any project *other* than Ember, this meeting, with four badass women and two (also badass, but beside the point) men, wouldn't be a thing. Just one of the many reasons I love Ember <3

💯 Google cookie blocking is a business maneuver, pure and simple. Classic response to new competition: vague announcement curiously coinciding with a competitor launch (Microsoft's Edge), tech not fully specified, and set at an indeterminate time far in the future.

“People don’t usually finish the test”. Then they offered me less than half as much money as all my other offers. I can only conclude that they were working under some weird other definition of “software engineer”.

A UK software consultancy was opening their first US office and I was interviewing to be their first US hire. They were all in three-piece suits. The bulk of the interview was a practical test, which I aced in half the time available, which left them confused because...

If the mentor is in the mentee’s chain of command, that’s the wrong way to do mentoring. They need to be a third party without management authority over the mentee.

"Sometimes being technically correct means being pedagogically incorrect." Sometimes to convey a concept or a vision, we make statements that are individually inaccurate. Nitpicking individual statements can cripple the message.

If evolution worked a bit faster, we'd see a whole raft of species following the koala/panda strategy and evolving to be more appealing to human beings in order to survive. The world would be full of adorable Disney insects, fish and birds freeloading off of our brain wiring.

The “standard semantics” are also tooling. You just don’t think of them as such because they’re more stable and more widely predeployed.

While I’m sure has it’s own problems, it feels like advanced alien technology compared to commuter rail. We urgently need electrified regional rail and a north-south connector.

It's really not even a coherent position. The coherent position would be "tooling that's built into browsers is better than tooling that isn't", but that's not what people say. "No tooling" is not really ever a thing, obviously, unless you're hand-crafting machine code.
