Nice article on the differences in what the insurer and insuree need and why that makes insurance make sense after all:

The app and Facebook keeping getting better. A generation from now, kids will ask their grandparents who worked at Facebook... “you did what?!? And you just sat there not questioning it?”

At some point the answer “we didn’t know or I’m not political” won’t suffice. twitter.com/oneunderscore__/st

Thread. Truth.

We're all very aware that technology has a huge representation problem. I absolutely adore the .NET community that has been my "spiritual home" for almost two decades. But here's an uncomfortable truth - it's a number of orders of magnitude worse in our community.

Short Thread: staying with some friends and last night after everyone went to bed I could not figure out how to turn off the large ceiling light in their living room. There is a wall controller that seemed fairly straightforward.

Long-black: double-shot of espresso poured into hot water.

Americano: double-shot of espresso topped up with hot water.

As an experiment I made a long black and an americano just now. Same beans, same water, same machine.

They taste almost exactly the same. Near enough you can't tell. Maybe a tiny bit more body on the americano. Nice crema on both.

I'm calling it - these are the same drink.

There's much badness on the internet. But there's so much more goodness.

Heisann folkens. Eg er usikker på om eg har lagt ut om denne trioen før, men dei er så flinke at dei er verdt å poste om ein gong til!

Valkyrien Allstars er eit folkemusikk-band beståande tå tre hardingfeler og nokon gongar ein toradar. Desse er verdt sterkt å høyra på!

Tuva Syvertsen (hovudsangaren) er med på Kver Gong Vi Møtast no, det er svært kjekt!

Her er mine topp tre låtar tå Valkyrien Allstars:
Grøfter
Å Gjev Du Batt Meg
Ikke Gå

Ha ein strålande kveld vidare!

Product-development. This is the point of it all. If you do this, you'll make it. If you don't you won't.

RT @allenholub@twitter.com

Rule of thumb: Nothing goes on the backlog that's not essential. If you're going to go belly up if you don't do it, it's essential. Restrict your backlog to things that will cause your company (or your customers or your product) to fail if they don't have it.

I really like the Amazon Prime "X-Ray" functionality.

Why do people think Waterfall works? The first time it was described it was literally brought up as a way to NOT do things.

Adam Savage plays in The Expanse season 2 finale!?

Cool!

I'm doing my part!

Amazon continually impresses me as a customer. I went from non-prime user to watching the Expanse in less than a minute. I think maybe less than 30 seconds.

That's incredible!
