A Good Developer Week

This is just a note for myself, as a kind of reference. Last week, I had a pretty nice week at work. Nothing major, but I’ve felt very positive and productive with my work hours. A lot of good conversations, completed a lot of new functionality, even helped others a bit with some troubleshooting.

Network Effect: Your Time Here is Limited

“The videos activate our voyeurism, the sound recordings tempt us with secrets, and the data promises a kind of omniscience, but all of it is a mirage — there is no one here to watch, there is no secret to find, and the data, which seems to be so important, is actually absurd.
