staff-hours feels okay to me. That's a new one. Thanks.

I... really like this idea. If it works, it serves as direct reparations to Black Americans. If it gets shot down, it exposed the hypocrisy of legacy admissions.

I’m not sure I have the bandwidth to deliver on this given the current resourcing and other externalities. Maybe if we strategize on demystifying the value proposition and creating more mutualistic value adds, we can find some synergies that will bring us back to the table.

Yes. But grep is a noun that refers to a singular thing who's sole purpose is grepping. Similar to how refrigerators were invented and now it's perfectly reasonable to "refrigerate" things.

It’s still useful but it feels really dated today. You should read mostly so you know what other people are talking about when they reference it.

Yes. Turning nouns into verbs is equally teeth-grating.

I used to be fine with “man-hours” as a way to think about effort, except it’s too gendered. “Person-hours” doesn’t sound right though. And if you hit me with “person-weeks” I feel like I wanna get up and walk out.

Based on this thread, I feel like I’m wishy-washy on corporate speak. I’m comfortable with common things like “bandwidth”, “ping me”, “take this offline”. But I draw the line at turning verbs into nouns, like “ask” and “learnings”.

A lot of folks responded to this talking about CSV files and I’m like “aw, that’s cute”.

HUGE SCOOP IN PA. The postal service is now telling state officials in Pennsylvania -- the most critical swing state in November's election -- that it can't deliver the mail quickly enough for the current vote by mail plan. This is a 9-alarm fire, folks

Like I said, find mentors/sponsors. A big part of their job is just reminding you of this stuff every six months or so. You’re gonna forget and do shit to sabotage yourself because that’s what we humans do. Be gentle with yourself. Most screwups are both survivable and fixable.

- Sharing credit is great. Dont take credit for other people’s work - Let your boss(es) take credit for your work most of the time. This is in exchange for promotions - Learn what it looks like when other people are trying to take credit for your work. Don’t let them

I guess I got away from the technical stuff. (But the other stuff is the really important stuff) - Learn to recognize when you wrote some amazing code. Make sure other people know about it. - Learn to recognize when the code you wrote is not amazing. Let other people help fix it.
