I coined a phrase today while pair programming: "Stop code-rubbernecking." It’s not necessary to understand 100% of a codebase in order to make a small change to it -- when the principles of abstraction are properly used and understood. #SoftwareEngineering #abstraction

I just saw a lizard eat an insect in my backyard from my kitchen window. It was truly amazing to behold. The lizard, fixed his eyes on the insect, slightly arched its body as if winding up, and leapt/pounced forward 5-6 inches and swallowed the insect in one bite.

I remember hearing about this as a big hush-hush secret from all the ex-PayPal people (who all did it with their follow-up companies). Surprised it took this long to come out... https://t.co/sgdPynDD5E

Yikes, default virtualenvs on Ubuntu 20.04 aren't empty and instead include 24 packages, among them urllib3 v1.25.8 😬 As is still the case: don't use system Python for anything. Install Python via other means like pyenv and use that instead. https://t.co/uiPM0mZnHE

An old tweet(2014) from @sama, CEO of @OpenAI, Former president of @ycombinator OG's have understood the power #Stellar way before it was cool! @StellarOrg is much bigger than you think. DYOR! #XLM > #Bitcoin @elonmusk

@ChainLinkGod @PeterMcCormack Hey cryptocurrency “experts”, ever heard of PayPal? It’s possible … maybe … that I know than you realize about how money works.

@ChainLinkGod @PeterMcCormack Bitcoin is actually highly centralized, with supermajority controlled by handful of big mining (aka hashing) companies. A single coal mine in Xinjiang flooded, almost killing miners, and Bitcoin hash rate dropped 35%. Sound “decentralized” to you? https://t.co/Oom8yzGRNQ

@elonmusk "According to current numbers Stellar is (ball park figure) ~1,367,187.5% more energy efficient than Bitcoin." Stellar is the quickest and most sustainable crypto in the market today, no mining needed! Source: https://t.co/POHKuGguro #XLM #Stellar $xlm #bitcoin #ElonMusk

When we look back in 20 years, the winners amongst millennials and gen z will all tell different stories. But the one part of the story that will be the same will be the part where they deleted ig and generally silenced notifs from social media apps.

Average leaders give people something to work on. Great leaders give people something to work for.

Feed a man a fish, feed him for a night. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime. Teach a man to make AI, the AI does all the fishing and everyone is fed forever. Then the AI accidentally kills all the people and the fish win.
