1. It's an interesting position and had me rethinking things a bit, but the way I look at it, the actions themselves are negative; it's their boundary conditions which are different. Take for instance embark/disembark. In pseudo-mathematical terms, I would tend to think they increment or decrement one's embarkedness, with an upper boundary of 1 (aboard), and a lower boundary of 0 (ashore). The non-existence of values >1 (super-aboard) or <0 (anti-aboard) shouldn't affect the relative polarity of the actions themselves. I think. Looking through the rest of the list, there's a variety of different boundary conditions. Prove/disprove would range from 1 to -1 (1=proven, 0=asserted but untested, -1=proven false), entangle/disentangle seems to range from 0 to infinity (because you can always be a little more entangled, can't you?), and please/displease is perhaps wholly unbounded (if we imagine that humanity has an infinite capacity for both suffering and joy).

1. I recently chatted with a data science leader who described their company reaching this state. They couldn’t show any business impact from the past two years of their product releases, so the finance team identified a surefire way for R&D to make a business impact: laying off much of the R&D team.

1. Rick was a very talented developer. Rick could solve complex business logic problems and create sophisticated architectures to support his lofty designs. Rick could not solve the problem of how to work effectively on a team.

:)

2. I dove into the source code. Rick was right: no-one could possibly understand what Rick had created. Except for Rick. It was a reflection of the workings of his own mind. Some of it was very clever, a lot of it was copy-pasta, it was all very idiosyncratic, and it was not at all documented.

I used to work in such a project :)

1. Backpacker Jobs Backpackers and vagabonds do work that I’ll call “alternative” travel jobs. The type of work that may not require a computer or a college degree, but has a more hands-on approach. Think musicians, artists, or manual labor. Pay could be under the table. Examples: Street vendor, musician, farm work, etc.

farm work is by far the most important work.

its crazy how farm work gets almost zero attention in this article.

2. Vehicular traffic comprises millions of objects, each weighing up to several tons, moving at high speeds in close proximity. Yet traffic is able to flow reasonably safely thanks to a relatively small set of rules, starting with a consensus about which side of the road to drive on.2.

Interesting overlap here, been digging into "scarcity" recently, that suggests that "slack" is a super important factor in roads working well (roads work bad when more than 70% full). I wonder if this holds for protocols too. Scarcity book

1. When I find a "get X free" button on a website that then asks for my email address, I like to search for the email of the company behind the website (sometimes it's on the legal page, or the privacy policy page) and I submit their email. I also make sure to check the "sign me up for the newsletter" box, to make sure the spammers get at least one of their messages. I don't really know why I do this, it seemed funny a few months ago when I started and now I do it out of habit. I now keep a list of emails from these spam sites, and subscribe them all to the various newsletters I find if I have 5 minutes.

1. All I know for sure is that they are trapped in the box.My solution for them: This isn’t working. Free yourself. Get out of this box. Putit away for another day and start a new box.

Don't get trapped in a particular project. Sometimes variety of projects can be just the medicine the doctor ordered. The zettelkasten method works, in part, because it makes it easier to work on things which inspire you while still knowing that you can slip away for a while, but still come back and find all your prior work there waiting for you. This is particularly useful even if you've forgotten that work.

Link this to examples of Luhmann and Ahren's descriptions of not becoming bored with their zettelkasten.

1. Type 2 fun is miserable while it’s happening, but fun in retrospect. It usually begins with the best intentions, and then things get carried away. Riding your bicycle across the country. Doing an ultramarathon. Working out till you puke, and, usually, ice and alpine climbing. Also surely familiar to mothers, at least during childbirth and the dreaded teenage years. I remember that very trip to Alaska, just a week before learning about the Fun Scale, when Scott and I climbed Mt. Huntington. Huntington might be the most beautiful mountain in the Alaska Range, but the final thousand feet was horrifying—steep sugar snow that collapsed beneath our feet as we battled upward, unable to down-climb, and unable to find protection or anchors. On the summit, with the immaculate expanse of the range unfolding in every direction, Scott turned to me and said, in complete seriousness, “I want my mom so bad right now.” By the time we reached Talkeetna his tune changed: “Ya know, that wasn’t so bad. What should we try next year?”

This deeply resonates with me. Love the classification of Type II fun.

Fun, fairness, and challenge could inform the development of three standards with students that could be used to structure their PE sessions. Ask them how do you measure fun? How do you measure fairness: How do you measrue challenge? If they participate in the development of standards, they will be more interested in using them as a guide to improvement - have more fun, play more fairly, ramp up the challenge.

1. first sighting: use of superscripts like this

I like it. Nice and concise and understandable.

• s¹ ￼￼￼ critical
• s² ￼￼ important
• s³ ￼ nice to have
• s⁴ ￼ low
• s⁵ ￼￼ inconvenient

But in other cases, the abbreviation is quite unclear and ambiguity:

Like, what does "pr" mean in these cases?

priority? Doubt it.

• pr¹ ￼ chore
• pr² ￼ docs
• pr³ ￼ feature
• pr⁴ ￼ fix
• pr⁵ ￼ performance
• pr⁶ ￼ refactor
• pr⁷ ￼ style

Pull Request? Doubt it. But maybe?

For axes that are quantifiable, like severity, using a number makes sense. But what benefit is there in including a number in these (platform?) labels?:

• p¹ ⋅ browser
• p² ⋅ linux
• p³ ⋅ mac
• p⁴ ⋅ windows

I think this would have been better and clearer (in that fewer people would be like huh? and wonder what it means):

• platform: browser
• platform: linux
• platform: mac
• platform: windows
