«Scrum is all process, but few of them. XP has fewer processes than Scrum, but way more practices. Practices, by the way, that I've heard asserted more than once are the difference between a successful or a failed Scrum team - that successful Scrum teams are using half of XP. In other words, Scrum is simply underreporting the number and variety of success factors, making it look much simpler than it really is.» #programming #quote #link https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=23909934

«Learn confidence and humility by mastering a common physical skill like an instrument, singing, or performing monologues, etc. Not stupid tricks, but something where other people are objectively way better than you are and plan to be embarrassingly bad at it for at least a decade.» #quote #link https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=23760849

«During the first Jobsian era at #Apple, I used to joke that Steve Jobs cared deeply about Apple customers from the moment they first considered purchasing an Apple computer right up until the time their check cleared the bank. Of course, in later years, the check was replace by a credit card, and check clearance was replaced by the 15-day return period, but Steve’s and Apple’s focus remained the same.» #ux #quote #link https://asktog.com/atc/the-third-user/

«In the growth period, investing ... is totally rational if it helps improve growth and quality of life now, given that repaying that debt will be easy later. But once #growth slows down, our expectations of #progress must also wane. This is hard for many people to accept because they think that past growth was paid for with past success, when the reality is that it was paid for with current success.» #quote #link https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=20678552

After a heavy workout, one sometimes cannot move a muscle: no matter how much willpower is exerted, no fuel remains, and the muscle is unable to abide. Same thing is possible with a mental effort.

I always thought that heavy *mental* workout leads to a myriad of unstoppable thoughts.

@ffdk1: A myriad of unstoppable thoughts may be just noise. The effect I'm talking about is an inability to concentrate and think a particular thought; the brain just reports a failure. Also, under lack-of-sleep conditions, the unstoppable thoughts turn into a quick slumber really easily, and also beyond control.

«To me what legitimacy the CCP has stems from its ability to maintain stability and foster human happiness. I would argue that the attempt to control history is wrong from a moral framework, but the Communists are unlikely to care, eh? So, from the viewpoint of realpolitik then, they either must control history globally or risk radicalizing any Chinese citizen who e.g. goes on vacation outside the CCP's reality bubble. So we have an inevitable clash of fundamental values. It's war.» #quote #китайский_путь

«Surely the point of writing readable code is to make it easy to come back later and modify it... But if you adhere so strongly to readability that you reject any attempts to improve the code out of fear they will increase its complexity, then you've destroyed the benefits of that readability. It's kind of the opposite of technical debt - you've spent a lot of effort building up technical credit by keeping the code readable, but that effort is wasted unless you eventually spend the credit on valuable features or performance. Obviously there's a danger of spending too much and going back into debt, but you shouldn't ignore the danger of spending too little.» #programming #quote #link https://lwn.net/Articles/754782/

It's an interesting take. One obvious thing that the author of the quotation omits is the ability to reason about the code when something goes wrong in production.

Since #netneutrality is a hot topic again, I'd like to remind us the best solution I've ever encountered, from 3 years ago. «I'd call up the ISPs and say this: "Hello, Uncle Sam here. You can charge whatever you like based on the contents of what you are carrying, but you are responsible for that content if it is hurtful; inspecting brings with it a responsibility for what you learn. -or- You can enjoy common carrier protections at all times, but you can neither inspect nor act on the contents of what you are carrying and can only charge for carriage itself. Bits are bits. Choose wisely. No refunds or exchanges at this window."» Source: http://geer.tinho.net/geer.blackhat.6viii14.txt #link #quote

The keynote is actually a treasure trove on various topics. E.g. «Privacy used to be proportional to that which it is impossible to observe or that which can be observed but not identified. No more -- what is today observable and identifiable kills both privacy as impossible-to-observe and privacy as impossible-to-identify, so what might be an alternative? If you are an optimist or an apparatchik, then your answer will tend toward rules of data procedure administered by a government you trust or control. If you are a pessimist or a hacker/maker, then your answer will tend towards the operational, and your definition of a state of privacy will be my definition: the effective capacity to misrepresent yourself.»

«What we build is defined and controlled by its unresolvable conflicts. … In #technology, I believe it comes down to the power dynamics of convenience. To create convenience—particularly the automated convenience technology trades in—someone else must make our choices for us. In other words: the less you have to do, the less say you have.» #deep #quote #link https://www.frankchimero.com/writing/the-webs-grain/

too bad I can't read this because (somewhat ironically) I can't print it (or put it in my kindle) so that it at least somewhat resembles the original web page, and it's too tall for me to read it off screen (the quote is applicable to much wider class of situations though)
