Still dealing with the consequences of mail servers suppressing my main Hello Web Books email due to hard-bouncing a month ago. Sigh. Has anyone else dealt with this?

@ericflo I was just rereading my rant from the acquisition times too, annoyed to see the predictions come true. :( medium.com/@shazow/re-facebook

We're hiring a lot of positions, I want to work with more of my friends! tidelift.com/about/careers If you apply, lemme know so I can mark you as a referral :)

When there is massive growth and metrics are looking great, it's not obvious what we did really matters.

You can attribute it to your disciplined 100hr/wk work ethic, or revolutionary open plan office layout, or your team's paleo diet, or the specific curve radius of your edges. Whatever.

But when the market turns, that's when we find out what really mattered. Or maybe it was just the right opportunism at the right time, and the party is over.

Success stories don't talk about this.

Can't tell what was worse: Inhaling car fumes while biking to the gym, or inhaling cologne bro fumes when walking into the locker room.

To any devs who have felt afraid to open source their code "too early": What if you added an obnoxious "THIS IS NOT READY OR STABLE" print to stdout in your code so that anyone who uses it will be painfully aware? Would that make you feel better?

@ericflo Remember before RTs became native and you had to trim it a bit with each layer of RT plus attribution?
