1. Reason poorly.
2. Condescend to the person who doesn't understand your poor reasoning.
3. Profit????

I don't fall for your bullshit. Sorry.

The Bullshit Asymmetry Principle has been kicking my ass more than usual the past few days...

If you say something demonstrably wrong, then just admit that you're wrong. It won't ruin your life, I promise. Stop clinging to your wrongness; just change your mind.

My country didn't lose its mind yesterday. That was nice.

Every time I find a Reddit post about software development, it feels like I've come across a gold mine. What better source for understanding the problems that people are facing and how they perceive the failures of what should be a approach to software development?

This will make for a significant source of material for articles and talks.

Doing the right thing (especially for yourself) doesn’t mean people won’t be upset.

People being upset doesn’t mean it’s not the right thing to do.

Bonus brain-melter: you might be doing the right thing for yourself and you might be the one who is upset about it, and that doesn’t change any of the above.
