Coronavirus safety tip: Assume you’re an asymptomatic carrier (because you don’t know you’re not) and that everyone you come within six feet of has an immunocompromised roommate.
The internet is amazing. Folks are already cooking up rapid-to-produce ventilators. This design is brilliantly simple and could be build in large volume easily (like, can use a wide range of commodity parts, as current availablity on things like motors/bearings is critical) pic.twitter.com/x1uyom6ESi

Conferenceless is projected to grow much faster than Serverless.
When people resist change its really important to consider the possibility that they may be right. Dont just bulldoze, that's violent arrogance. Listen to the arguments. Design an experiment to test, with minimum blast radius. Create proof points.
Hey nice #epidemiologists, do any of you want to weigh in on the validity/usefulness of this article currently making the rounds in #tech/#nerd-land? Curious to hear a take from someone with expertise like @SMHopkins @jonred15 @gmleunghku @shakakalaka medium.com/@tomaspueyo/co…
"Taken as a whole, what Monzo's system does is highly complex, but it has designed its systems in such as way as to divide that complexity into smaller, simpler pieces, and abstract it away from developers working on the code." theregister.co.uk/2020/03/09/…

"Every application must have an inherent amount of irreducible complexity. The only question is who will have to deal with it." - The Law of Conservation of Complexity also know as Tesler's Law. Larry Tesler, who thought me so much in my first year at Amazon, has passed away. RIP
@allenholub 2013: Kanban *explained* through values. Would love to know if this kinds of approach has been taken elsewhere. Seemed kinda obvious to me when I did it but most values models often seem more random than that blog.agendashift.com/2013/01/…
thesis: tech events should have a climate code of conduct, covering travel, carbon footprint, and waste disposal. this code of conduct should extend to vendor choices regarding cloud energy footprint. a group of us began a conversation but i would love to know what you think
Myth: Your AWS bill is a function of how many customers you have. Fact: Your AWS bill is a function of how many engineers you have.
You appear to be advocating a new: [ ] functional [ ] imperative [ ] object-oriented [ ] beginner-friendly [ ] non-programmer-friendly [ ] completely incomprehensible programming language. Your language will not work. Here is why it will not work famicol.in/language_check…
