      Love the idea of striving to become micro-famous! I’m with it

      One of my favorite things in this article is how Byrne pre-empts my context-collapse question with his notes about premature optimization point.

      I have way too many corollaries to draw from (one of them being the Prototypal inheritance chain in OOP), but I won't belabor the point.

      I thought this was short, sweet, and a great exploration of the 'writing as networking' idea.

      Loved it.

      part of the fun of meeting new people is learning stuff you didn’t realize was interesting

      For me, a big part of what makes it interesting is watching and feeling their enthusiasm while talking about their stuff.

      This is a delight

      You can save a lot of money on conference tickets and business cards if you use a couple well-chosen essays as a way to get warm intros from friends-of-friends who you’d want to collaborate with.
