Moving to @jmarhee
Up until today, my three favorite posts I've written are:
- 25 Tips for New Developers: https://dev.to/aspittel/25-tips-for-new-developers-advice-from-a-mostly-self-taught-software-engineer-1ff1
- Most important non-programming skills: https://dev.to/aspittel/the-most-important-non-programming-skills-for-programmers-iii
- React tutorial https://dev.to/aspittel/a-complete-beginners-guide-to-react-2cl6
I'm going to post my new favorite in a few hours! 😉

It's months later and I'm still talking about how much I hate Infinite Jest; I realized today part of that is that I had political context from his later essays (re: the McCain candidacy, for example) when revisiting his fiction, and it really does come through in the shittiest wya possible when you realize he was also obsessed with comparisons to Vollmann, the objectively more critical, less individualization fetishizing literary peer, and he hated it.
