RT @firstname.lastname@example.org: engineer: “Unless you’re familiar with Lamport, Brewer, Fox, Armstrong, Stonebraker, Parker, Shapiro...(and others) you don’t know distributed systems.”
also engineer: “I read ‘Thinking Fast and Slow’ therefore I know cognitive psychology and decision-making theory.”

The 13th century German saying "Wer zuerst kommt, mahlt zuerst" (idiomatic translation: "First come, first serve") reveals unexpected 21st century engineering foresight when incorrectly translated due to its homonym & applied to browser rendering: "Who comes first paints first."
Had a productive exchange from Germany with @email@example.com in Canada on #WebPerf issues by using @firstname.lastname@example.org's #WebPagetest, quickly sharing its visualizations & launching new test iterations. Makes me realize how crucial WPT has become for focussed dialogue about #perfmatters. <3
RT @email@example.com: Humans share 70% of our DNA with zebrafish. So when you're having difficulty getting anything done, it's usually because a zebrafish is using the DNA.
RT @EricaJoy@twitter.com: Reminder: if your leadership team is all white or all male, your company is effectively segregated. 🌈🌟
RT @StableSaboteur@twitter.com: Henry Stewart is my hero today
RT @firstname.lastname@example.org: http://Webhint.io – hinting at a better web
Sonarwhal is now Webhint and got a massive upgrade. Much faster, much smaller and still open source and customizable to your needs.
RT @email@example.com: I recently came face to face with an internet problem I didn’t even know existed, because for me (and probably you), it doesn’t—but it does for thousands or millions of people around the world. https://meyerweb.com/eric/thoughts/2018/08/07/securing-sites-made-them-less-accessible/
Paraphrasing & translating for [EN] speaking folks:
"My grandmother told me that back then you could smell that War was brewing. I didn't understand when she said how impotent people felt about it. Nowadays, I begin to smell it, too."
RT @DieMoira@twitter.com Meine Oma hat mir erzählt
Damals konnte man schoin zig Jahre vorher "riechen" dass Krieg in der Luft liegt
Früher habe ich nie verstanden, wie sie das meinte
wie ohnmächtig sich viele fühlten
Letzte Zeit bekomme ich eine Ahnung, wie es gerochen haben muss
RT @firstname.lastname@example.org: Instead of a hackathon, try a sleepathon. You’ll be better off.
Read another one of those "We don't do any meetings, we get stuff done instead" articles by a prominent figure.
Makes me wonder how folks who seemingly know so little about humans get into positions where they can influence so many lives.
RT @email@example.com: After 8 years @firstname.lastname@example.org working on Web Performance I'm going to take a shot at making it faster from the other side of the connection.
I'm uncomfortably excited to be joining @Cloudflare@twitter.com to work on making the long tail of the web fast.
RT @email@example.com: A quick environment check:
[ ] ask questions freely without being judged?
[ ] say "I don't know" without being judged?
[ ] experiment and fail without being judged?
[ ] ask for support or help without being judged?
All yes? You're in a learning environment!
