The story of America is that rich white men said everyone is created equal and spent the next 250 years being surprised that people took them seriously.

CEO got lucky, then got unlucky; is making employees responsible for bad management. As it ever goes.

He’s really this stupid. HE IS REALLY THIS STUPID.

A message from the President:

Rarely has the twitter discourse been more relevant to my interests.

I believe strongly that the current muscular women debate & discourse happening on the Twitter timeline needs more time to be explored thoroughly, mainly via photographic proofs. Please, let’s not bury the issue before we’ve looked at all of the evidence from many angles.

Current status: updating the firmware on my AV receiver, which is something I possibly ought to have been doing periodically. I wonder if I should do it for my tv too.

I wonder when tech leaders are going to learn. If you get people to come work for you because of the culture — things like caring about diversity, work/life balance, etc. — the employees expect you to keep your word. The hypocrisy of it is what makes it worse when you don’t.

There are a number of times that @RichSalz and I disagree, and sometimes colorfully, but big respect for mta.openssl.org/pipermail/open and leading by example.

This is profoundly disappointing by the OpenSSL OMC, and the loss of incredible engineers like Rich is a consequence.

Why are programmers like this? (Don’t answer. It was a rhetorical question. We all know why.)


Hi! Last month I pair-programmed on a bash script and every line of it had a bug we had to discover & fix. 30+ years of programming experience between us.

I feel like the first lesson to learn about programming is that you will probably fail at every step of the process at some point.

The trick is to find a community that celebrates failure and helps you grow from it.

I'm not a science writer, so I'm sure this is a n00b realization, but it sure is a different experience when we talk about e.g. "death lags" than when we say "it takes a long time to die of COVID-19."
