They do say that exposure breeds tolerance, but to be honest, that’s not universal.
Exposing myself to the constant throat cleaning and loogie hawking of the guy that sits behind me at work does not make me more tolerant of it. It just drives me insane.
As of today, that won’t be a problem. I swapped seats with someone at work. Here’s to hoping that nobody in that room has any annoying habits.
**Apple pulls police-tracking app used in Hong Kong protests after consulting authorities**

The 4 stages of tool mastery:
- Illumination: all of sudden, everything cliks into place! Hidden, breathtaking possibilities are revealed, a frenzy of excited learning and experimenting takes place, that may last a lifetime.
Enjoy the endorphin!
- Mastery: the tool has become a second nature, a daily driver, a trusted companion. You may even have improved it, in ways large and small.
That's usually when someone looks at you and says "Wow, I wish I knew how to do that...".
I am still holding out hope for the org, but my hope in the movement is far more certain.
#ClimateChange as competitive advantage:
"Mr Parker said wood was seen as part of the solution to future problems faced by the construction sector. He said a cubic metre of cross-laminated timber (CLT) absorbed more than 700 kilograms of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Idiots don't use #GPL then complain when their code is stolen, push #media to give a bleak idea of the #commons. You can't have #open core and exist in the same monopolistic #business model as proprietary. #Wordpress, #drupal, #magento - et all #CMS still have a thriving ecosystem where many startups companies exist to provide services over a commons resource
Apple software I don’t like: hundreds of pictures on the iPhones so of course I can use Photos (nope) or Preview to import them. Preview it is. Select 647 of the 731 pictures, import… wait… and it crashes after 554 images. Ah, right! How could I forget that this piece of software the developers seem not to be using themselves crashes somewhere between 200 and 300 images. Every single time, it seems.
Just let me mount the phones as external drives, you Silicon Valley brainiacs!
