‚Bezos is known as an especially abrasive leader, giving feedback such as “Are you lazy or incompetent?” “If I hear that idea again, I’m gonna have to kill myself,” and “Why are you wasting my life?“‘
During the industrial revolution, things got cheaper, and this higher quality goods were chosen for the same task, says this article. Good thought.
Sooo, I'm sorting all the links that I collected over the last year, and my #readinglist backlog is at 114 articles. 😢
I hope improving my bookmark-management brings my online life forward a bit. Sharing links across devices, saving interesting stories for later, and always having references at hand during conversations. No more "I think I've seen it on the internet somewhere..." 👍
I don't have a webserver available, and thus can't try any of the nice #selfhosted stuff out there... I should change that! 😄

Fabergé eggs, East-Germany, Circus-people, discussions about nuclear disarmament, etc...
This guy reviewed the book "Why Nuclear Power Has Been a Flop" by Jack Devanney, and it seems quite interesting:
For example, some thoughts on having as little radiation as reasonable: "What defines “reasonable”? It is an ever-tightening standard. [...] Actually, it‘s worse than that: it essentially says that if nuclear becomes cheap, then the regulators have not done their job."
