Rachel Smith on code-first vs. product-first engineers. I read this a few weeks ago and it’s been simmering in the back of my head since then.
Dan McKinley on boring technology. I’ve also been thinking about this a lot, primarily with respect to the technologies I use to build my personal projects.
Robin Sloan on permacomputing. The long-term durability of our current technologies — or lack thereof — is also something I think about fairly often. Nice to see movement in that direction.
Ada Palmer on disability. Resonated a lot with me.
Clive Thompson on nine ways to rewild your attention. Good suggestions. I particularly like the one about randomly reading old books.
