People dunked on this tweet, saying, in essence, “This isn’t 100% correct - you shouldn’t pay attention.” But that misses the point. The value of any model is that it’s simpler than reality so that you can gain insight. Here are the insights I have gained from this model.

Quoted RichRogersIoT’s tweet:

The challenge with adding more engineers to a project. Just moving from 3 developers to 4 doubles the number of lines of communication.

Last night I was in a loo and a woman entered the only other stall crying. I did the awkward shout over and asked if she was ok or wanted to talk about it, or needed a hug

Toni Morrison didn’t write her first novel until she was 40. So if you haven’t written yours yet, there’s still time.

Odds are it’ll be terrible. But, there’s still time.

Best email unsubscribe button story i’ve ever come across.

Quoted Joe8Bit’s tweet:

I saw a tweet asking why sometimes when you unsubscribe from an email list it says it can ‘take a few days’. Buckle up, as I have a RIDICULOUS story about this happening in The Enterprise™️…

About the “security issue” on #VLC : VLC is not vulnerable. tl;dr: the issue is in a 3rd party library, called libebml, which was fixed more than 16 months ago. VLC since version 3.0.3 has the correct version shipped, and @MITREcorp did not even check their claim.

Thread:

I’ve seen film critics say the MCU is like “series television, but at the movies.”

It’s simpler than that.

Multiple franchises in a shared universe. Interweaving subplots and soap opera. That’s COMICS.

“It’s comics, but at the movies.”

And that’s not a bug, it’s a feature.

Huge comet headed towards earth.

Extinction. But, say you had 20 years warning. There’s time. We could stop it. We have the means. But it would take all of us.

Then you find out the rich, instead of stopping it, are building lifeboats for themselves.

That’s climate change.

So. I quit my job by telling the truth. I told my boss and everyone there that I wasn’t happy and needed to get out of this toxic environment. And OMG, the reactions! It’s like mental health and self preservation doesn’t and shouldn’t exist at work.
