This post really resonates with my experience, seeing different teams here effectively (re)building the same product, per platform. The JS world has some really nice things. (thanks for the writeup, ⁦@[email protected]⁩ !) ashfurrow.com/blog/learning-fr

Huh, I don't think I ever shared video of this demo I built for the Zeit React Meetup before: an Apple Music UI clone built in rndom, with a big focus on mimicking the UI & transitions.

(7/7) more about black holes and other subjects I am passionate about -- including space, being a gay astronomer, Ursula K. Le Guin, architecture, and musicals. Thanks for following me, and let me know if you have any questions about the EHT! 😀📡🕳️

B2B IPOs are HOT:

- PagerDuty
- Zoom
- Slack
- etc.

B2C Not So Hot:
- Lyft
- Pinterest
- etc.

I mean, if you'd said this even in 2015, YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN LAUGHED OUT OF THE ROOM FOR REAL

(1/7) So apparently some (I hope very few) people online are using the fact that I am the primary developer of the eht-imaging software library (github.com/achael/eht-imaging) to launch awful and sexist attacks on my colleague and friend Katie Bouman. Stop.

(5/7) out that this was a team effort including contributions from many junior scientists, including many women junior scientists (facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10). Together, we all make each other's work better; the number of commits doesn't tell the full story of who was indispensable.

“Sometimes I joke, “Moby Dick was written by one person.” Three of [Herman Melville] probably wouldn’t be much faster. Software is a lot like that. Without understanding what you’re trying to do, adding more people will actually slow you down.”

SCIENTISTS: “We’ve produced the first-ever image of a supermassive Black Hole, 55-million light years away”

SCIENTISTS: “We’ve concluded that humans are catastrophically warming Earth”
RESPONSE: “That conflicts with what I want to be true, so it must be false”

Black holes were considered theoretical not that long ago, and now we're staring one in the face. Incredible. twitter.com/ehtelescope/status

Once upon a time my boss asked me to study if we should use C++ or Erlang for a specialist XML parser to be used in a product (for reasons of speed not energy).

My recommendations was an FPGA

We built an FPGA.

Relative speed of C++/Erlang was irrelevant compared to FPGA. twitter.com/joeerl/status/1115

[email protected]@twitter.com notes an important turning in the culture: a growing "refusal by an increasingly class-conscious society to let corporate wrongdoers donate and philanthropize their way out of being called out for their profit-seeking sins."
