This follows a couple of quiet months, so it’s not as chaotic as it sounds.

That was a day. Woof.

A minor production incident (caused by a vital service being turned off on purpose without understanding implications) interrupted a retro for a larger prod incident (caused by an external service that nobody knew we depended on changing behavior).

I don’t want to judge because I also have some irrational worries but if your big anxieties are “billionaires might have 50x more money than they could ever need instead of 5000x” and “non-billionaires might go to a doctor” stop writing that Forbes blog and see a therapist

Feeling exhausted and not sure why I continue the fight. But I continue, because making systems go right is an identity tho g for me, I guess.

@xeni@twitter.com it seems like we've now officially passed the point where our job as is no longer explaining the future to Boomers but instead explaining the past to Millennials & Gen Y.

Was there any point at which we got to explain the present to one another? Because I missed it.

Oooh I’d like to watch this talk.

NTSB docs: Uber's radar detected Elaine Herzberg nearly 6 seconds before she was fatally struck, but “the system design did not include a consideration for jaywalking pedestrians” so it didn't react as if she were a person. washingtonpost.com/local/traff

Several months in review of my ridonkulous Corsair Crystal Series 680X RGB-everything PC case: Awesome. Build was EZ; tweaking the build after the fact was EZ; fans are suitably silly. Would buy again; will definitely keep the case in use for as long as possible.

Well that was the day that was.

I learned a lot of surprising things today!
