Scathing commentary on how Medium.com sacrifices their core reading experience to “maximize” engagement and conversion of new users – brutal af (but totally warranted):
I don’t believe that software programming (and the languages and skills associated with it) is particularly better than any other type of skill. Meaning, I don’t consider it qualifiably better than really any other type of trade skill (and I hate when I read arrogant programmers who say stupid shit like that).
There’s nothing more demoralizing than working for someone who has not (and perhaps will not) ever done the work that they are asking you to do. This is especially bad in larger corporate structures, but happens in every size organization.
I’ve always liked Jim Carrey and he, on occasion, has some fairly decent words of wisdom and advice scattered in and around the internet. The Mask was definitely one of my favorite movies growing up and I must have watched that movie 100 times.
