My notes on "The Coaching Habit": https://anaulin.org/blog/book-notes-the-coaching-habit/
TL;DR: Short, useful read. Highly recommended for most anyone who wants to get better at listening and supporting others.
Would love to see some people join the IRC channel for Platform Cooperativism:

My thoughts on how to write more effective job postings: "How To Write Better Job Descriptions" https://anaulin.org/blog/how-to-write-better-job-descriptions/ ✅💼
The follow-up, "Refactoring the Mirrortocracy" (http://carlos.bueno.org/2014/06/refactoring.html) is pretty good, too. Good advice on hiring and biases.
It's sad to think that these essays are 4 years old but not much, if anything, has changed.
I can't believe I hadn't come across this essay until now: "Inside the Mirrortocracy" (http://carlos.bueno.org/2014/06/mirrortocracy.html)
It's full of wonderful. 😻
Recently I've found myself annoyed by how we throw the around the terms "professionalism" and "being professional".
So I wrote about it: "What Are We Saying When We Say 'Professional'?" https://anaulin.org/blog/what-are-we-saying-when-we-say-professional/
I wrote up my thoughts on "Lean Out: The Struggle for Gender Equality in Tech and Start-Up Culture": https://anaulin.org/blog/book-notes-lean-out-shevinsky/
I tried out the "dictation" functionality in Ulysses (a writing app). Now I'm revising and editing and I see that it transcribed "middle age" as "mutilation". My focus is shot.
A friend sent me a very sweet and encouraging note mentioning that he came across my blog post on Hacker News.
This led to me accidentally clicking on the Hacker News link and reading the first couple of comments.
Amazing how I used to think HN was a good source of news, and now it just seems to be an alternate universe. Bizarre.
