Some reflections on a workshop on "Executive Presence for Women" that I attended yesterday: "The Demands of 'Executive Presence' in the Modern Workplace are Exhausting" anaulin.org/blog/the-demands-o

Just realized that "evil" is an anagram of "vile", and I'm shocked I hadn't noticed this before, word-game nerd that I am. πŸ™€

How do we measure the performance of a software engineer? anaulin.org/blog/on-software-e

(TL;DR: there is no magic formula.)

November starts tomorrow and, with it, NaNoWriMo. I'll be trying to publish some writing every day (although not fiction). Feeling uncomfortably excited. πŸ™€βœοΈ

I have a sudden urge to play Railroad Tycoon, which is I game I haven't played in... 15 years? Longer? πŸš‹ πŸ’°

I'm thinking about making a thing called the Data Liberation Society (For People Who Are Tired Of Not Talking About Revolution).

In particular we will focus on actionable things we, dreamers, software developers, data scientists, concerned humans, can do to lay the foundation for revolution and the world to come after revolution.

I'm kinda shocked that we spent barely 70% of the 24 hours actually playing rooms. My memory of it is like one long muddied room play.

"I look at all the people in tech who are convinced they are saving the world, that what they do matters. When the money goes, and it will, that feeling will go with it."

That voice that's telling you that you didn't do enough today is capitalism and it's lying.

I know I'm getting old and set in my ways because it annoys me when people use "blog" to mean "blog post" or "article", as in "i wrote a blog today".

Given that "blog" is short for "weblog", as in "web logbook", you cannot write a blog in a day. You run a blog, or maintain a blog, or write it over time. Not in one day, no.

But that's just me resisting the inevitable evolution of language. Like an old person. Blergh.

Protect your schedule, including the empty time.
