We usually build software products and then we try to expand them infinitely. Something that does not happen with other products, that have a clear lifecycle.
Software lifecycle is perennial beta, and usually software dies meanwhile is still in beta.
I think this is one of the greatest source of frustation for me as a developer, never being able to finish a product.

It's World Mental Health day. I'm a 38 year-old man.

I'm not, nor have I ever, been suicidal, but I am in the age bracket where it is a major cause of death.

I began a course of therapy a couple of weeks ago and it's already one of the best decisions I ever made.

If you, or someone you know, is struggling - even if it's only affecting one part of their life (as it has been with me) then I strongly suggest some CBT.

a friend of mine works as a pet-sitter, and few days ago she wrote a negative feedback about a huge scam from a company that sells dogs with fake pedigrees (fostering the reproduction of dogs with genetical diseases, etc).
Now this company started slanders her over social profiles.
She seems to be up to go ahead and go with layers if necessary, tough she has not so much money and experience meanwhile the company is quite big and seems used to manage with all this shit.
Any suggestion?

*my next goal*
to build a usefull tool without fucking care about progress.

Posso vedere la lucida striscia verde dell'erba ai piedi del muro, e il limpido cielo azzurro al disopra del muro, e sole dappertutto. La vita è bella. Invito le generazioni future a purificarla da ogni male, oppressione e violenza e a goderla a pieno.»

(...) Morirò rivoluzionario, proletario, marxista, materialista dialettico e di conseguenza ateo convinto. La mia fede nell'avvenire comunista dell'umanità non è meno ardente, anzi è più salda oggi di quanto non fosse nella prima gioventù. Natascia si è appena avvicinata alla finestra che dà sul cortile, e l'ha aperta in modo che l'aria entri più liberamente nella mia stanza.

Le nuove generazioni rivoluzionarie ne riabiliteranno l'onore politico e tratteranno i giustizieri del Cremlino come si meritano. (...) Quali che siano le circostanze della mia morte, io morirò con la incrollabile fede nel futuro comunista. Questa fede nell'uomo e nel suo futuro mi dà, persino ora, una tale forza di resistenza che nessuna religione potrebbe mai darmi.

«Non ho bisogno di confutare ancora una volta le stupide e vili calunnie di Stalin e dei suoi agenti: non v'è una macchia sul mio onore rivoluzionario. Né direttamente né indirettamente non sono mai sceso ad accordi, o anche solo a trattative dietro le quinte, coi nemici della classe operaia. Migliaia d'oppositori di Stalin sono cadute vittime d'accuse analoghe, e non meno false.

I hate the "own your data" meme in the decentralized social web. A friend of mine pointed out how useless the phrase is a few years ago and I agree. "Ownership" sounds an awful lot like digital "property", which is nonsense when moving from physical to digital stuff because copying doesn't destroy the original. The path you go down there is the path to artificial constraints like DRM. Yikes!

We should be talking about user autonomy instead. That's a much better meme.
