even if you go to mars, that's an average distance of 14 light-minutes. phone calls, vidchats, all kinds of synchronous communication all go out the window. you have to go back to asynchronous methods for interplanetary communication: emails, forums, comment sections. in a sense, going to space means going back to the 90s

"The Gradual Design System: How We Built Slack Kit" it's a long process, but just one component, thoroughly documented, was immediately valuable, and created a virtuous cycle for the system. slack.engineering/the-gradual-

Never forget that a simple, friendly comment/reply can make someones day.

How would you build a social network if the objective was to *maximize* drama ?

I'm glad I got burned
Think of all the things we learned
For the people who are still alive.

Have we learned yet what GLaDOS tried to teach us about the value of failing forward?

Daily conversations on Twitter: "hey! I learned something. Check this out!"

Teach a person to create their own software, and infuriate them for the rest of their life.
