we do this all the time and I 💜 it so much. it comes in a few flavors:

- targeted, timeboxed "let's solve this problem together" meetings
- unstructured, open Zoom calls where we "cowork" on different things with casual chatter
- ad hoc "I'm stuck" sessions to unblock people twitter.com/techgirl1908/statu

If I poured this coffee all over myself right now, it would represent a significant improvement in how my day is going.

I’m trying out the new hotness in development fads, which is the monofile in the monorepo. And TBH, once you get into the habit of splitting your editor window into six different panes it’s a total breeze. Super-efficient.

I’m subtweeting myself with that last tweet, in case you were wondering.

This is worth your dollars, if you have a few to spare.

open source and capitalism are cool because one of the very few people whose work might have legitimately generated anywhere close to a billion dollars in value was almost too poor to keep doing that work informationweek.com/it-life/nt

The public feed. The mashup of the public feed and Google Maps. The users inventing @-replies. Third-party apps providing the word tweet, pull to refresh, and the bird logo.

It's not just Foster. It's every single writer or artist who created comic books in the Star Wars / Aliens / Predator franchises for Dark Horse Comics that are now being reprinted by Disney / Marvel. They are getting zero royalties on those reprints. twitter.com/scalzi/status/1329

If Disney proceeds on this basis, I am offering contingent-fee representation to everyone who has ever licensed something FROM Disney to sell the license to a new entity and then keep making products but not pay royalties to Disney. HMU, as the young kids say. twitter.com/sfwa/status/132916

Fucking hell. This is *massive* @Disney are *refusing* to pay royalties owed to Alan Dean Foster for his @starwars and @AlienAnthology novelisations. Their reason: they bought the rights, not the obligations, to Alan's work - regardless of any contract Alan might have. twitter.com/sfwa/status/132913

I am unlikely to use your expensive software-as-a-service product if your docs site does not load at all and I cannot discover what it does.

My favorite detail about this story was that Ramamurti worked for the Red Sox along the way.

Issues once considered fringe, carefully researched by Ramamurti and colleagues and put in play by Warren, are now considered mainstream.
