Me, a unixy old person: "... and before end to end encryption was standardized, that meant that something called replay attacks were possible. To mitigate this, kerberos authentication was invented, which..."

A young unixy person: "can you pet it though."


"Kerberos was named for the three headed dog that guards the gates of hell, right?"

"... yes?"

"Can I pet the dog, is my question."



"Ok, no, but file that bug immediately."

When I was living as a man, it’s not that I didn’t believe women, I just thought oh it’s a few bad apples, I’m not like that, etc

The more female experiences I have... Fellas, it’s a lot of the men.

they're called dad jokes but they can be made by any groan-up

I think in the end, history has shown upstreams to be in the right more often than not, and that egocentric model of former employers to be a detriment.

But honestly, I just wish people would freaking work together on solving issues instead of starting spats on social media.

hypothesis: much of the value that's ascribed to Google's monorepo + one-version policy is actually due to consistently allocating engineer-time to solving versioning issues

Mozilla has announced a grant of up to $30,000 "to people and projects that illuminate how to reimagine data in a way that shifts power away from big tech platforms and toward individuals and communities."

This 💯 And I’d even say you’re going to be a *better* engineer if you’re kind. Why? Because others will want to learn from you, so your knowledge and skill will spread, and other will be eager to help you when you find an area to grow.


Good morning 🌞 You can be a great engineer and be kind. The two are not mutually exclusive.

"Why are hyperlinks blue?" by Elise Blanchard

Incredibly thorough history. I love stuff like this.

I just picked up "Sayonara Wild Hearts," and it's as incredible as everyone says it is.

Is there a name for this genre? Any recommendations for more stuff like this?
