Started tracking sleep again, turns out I sleep surprisingly little
The Boeing disaster shows you what happens when you try to do something that usually takes at least a certain amount of time and push people really hard from a position of power to do it in a fraction of that time.
I’ve seen the same thing so many times in software projects, the consequences can’t be compared, but still shortcuts always bites you in the ass or blows up under you
As a former coffee snob it really drives me nuts and takes all of the self control in the world to not start a rant when people talk about how excellent French press coffee is
I was reading Elements of Clojure by Zachary Tellman [Leanpub PDF/iPad/Kindle] for the fifth time or something last night. It’s a great book, and I think everyone doing any kind of coding should read it.

When I open it on my Mac it’s fairly simple and one button and I can see everything I’d ever need to fix or debug something. In windows on the other hand I’m met with this wall of stuff, where it looks like some comité have tried to make it less technical without making it better for anyone.
Unless you can make it easier for someone, don’t make stuff less technical just because someone told you to do that.
