i've seen more than one programmer, who himself once performed the lowly task of learning syntax, now say programming is an art form and tries to give lots of yoda/wax-on-wax-off guidance to becoming a programmer.
the kid is interested in how a chair works, hand him a wrench. if he's curious how a computer works, teach some syntax.
they left out the meat of the argument: where do we find fake positivity?? do we do it accidentally? where is it??
so that leaves only a very superficial analysis. anyone would agree "fake positivity" is not healthy. being honest with yourself is good. this is just obvious.
the only slightly deeper dive - that feeling non-happy is normal - is a good thing for those that need to hear it of course.
awesome summary of what many have suggested for weeks, and is just now coming to light to the mainstream regarding the hysteria and panic that is going on.
unfathomably corrupt state officials.
good real life example of something you read in chapter 1 of any economics textbook.
got to love snarky ambitious business owners.
this article is so deviously pro-dictator and is result of believing propaganda caused by a lack of conviction in life sustaining values. the author treats this topic like a game of Risk rather than recognizing that people's lives are at stake.
suggesting that "the use of violence" by the protestors was a mistakenly played chess move, while the city is surrounded by tanks and its citizens threatened with elimination of all liberty, is ridiculous. it's not china's government's right to be allowed to take over people's lives, just because they're some kind of recognized group called a nation.
absent the awful communist ideology and leadership enforcing it, there would be no violence to speak of. it's 100% the responsibility of china. chinese communism is truly evil.
Its an epidemic. Readup to the rescue!
people will come to love their oppression, to adore the technologies that undo their capacities to think.
Perfect example of this is the irony that Slack is given a prominent voice in this article.
Despite Slack’s supposedly great internal culture, they are building a tool that everyone else is using to destroy their own.
Really flimsy and superficial analysis. Doesn’t really move the conversation along at all or provide any new info.
Still kind of interesting.
Very interesting read. Good explanation of the upside of trunk based whatever it’s called.. Forcing people into feature flags is great. And this also forces programmers to make their code as plug and play as possible.
Article doesn’t cover the downsides at all so I’m very curious about those.
The US legal system is too easily weaponized. Here, by teenage girls. It needs to focus on defending rights of all people.
