Great idea, to review --> The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck - Summarized by the Author Mark Manson

Velocity – Gross vs. Net
Velocity is where theory and practice clash very hard. Your numbers may look great but your predictability is worthless - or vice versa.

Rank – what is it good for?
Absolutely nothing. Ha! Everybody wants it and the power that comes with it, but when you use it, you lose it.

Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦‍♂️


And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.

Provokante These: Ich finde 17.000 Teilnehmer für eine Demo, die lange geplant war und für die bundesweit mobilisiert wurde, nicht überragend viel. Für ein Milieu, das gerne von sich behauptet "Wir sind das Volk", ist es ernüchternd. (Trotzdem ist es natürlich bedenklich) #b0108

I think basically what my beef with part of my job boils down to is the aspect of Wordpress site maintenance. All the new apprentices in my department have to do it at first. And it's bullshit.

I remember ~13 years ago, when I actually downloaded and set up a blog on Wordpress, and set up self-hosting. It was difficult to figure out, but fun and interesting. When I started this job, having not used WP in a long time, I assumed it would be the same.

Ugh, no. Wordpress is just a marketing hellscape now. Marketers marketing to other marketers. Ads on the backend, masquerading as "alerts". Stupid websites for pointless businesses, all clawing desperately for a piece of some imaginary whatever.

It's hell. Literally.

And fuck javascript, just in general.

When Covid-19 first hit America hard last month, the narrative was that it was the great equalizer, that in such a divided nation, our shared humanity meant we would be equal in our suffering. But those of us who understand racial caste in America knew this could never be true.

Ich verwende seit immer meinen #Klarnamen in allen sozialen Netzwerken. Habe auch überall immer nur einen Account. Das geht, weil ich männlich, weiß und deshalb privilegiert bin. Das viele Andere nicht so vorgehen können, ist mir bewußt und ich respektiere und unterstütze das.
