  • I [[worked]] and it was nice -- it felt like a productive day.
    • I'm an [[sre]] at [[google]]; you should know that about me.
    • If you have any concerns about my employment, I'd love to discuss them! I believe that [[google]] is a [[good company]] to work for, but I'm interested on feedback. If nothing else I can try to pass it along! But I'd love to also learn from it.
  • [[burning chrome]] -> [[burning chromium]]?
    • asked [[william gibson]] over Twitter, I'm a fan, of course he doesn't have to respond.
    • this is a [[short]] story of sorts I've been meaning to write.
  • [[push]] [[intents]]
    • I am behind on all social networks and chat platforms, but I will try to always stay up to date with [[matrix dms]] and [[agora journals]].
    • Apologies for any destructive delay!
  • This is [[agora protocol]]. If you'd like to join the design of [[agora protocol]], you can do it by using it :)
    • What I mean with this is: I will be reading your journals and trying to learn your communication style with good intentions.
  • This is my [[contract]].
    • I'll try to learn from you and help you and others.

latency status quo is terrible - how can we do better?

https://danluu.com/input-lag/ what can force an improvement in experiences for most developers? not using javascript is a start, so is rust

lessons from phd

https://austinhenley.com/blog/lessonsfrommyphd.html#managers

  • lead or be led - actively advocate for yourself or you won't get what you want out of your experiences. you have far more information to determine how to prioritize than they do about you.

  • topic sentences. write the first for each paragraph, them flesh all of the bodies out.

  • managers are IO machines. your best use of them isn't to prove that you are productive; rather, it's to show up with something to answer questions and receive feedback

    • assume they forgot the last meeting

    • bring things to talk about and a goal

    • 3-4 sentences refreshing everyone

    • what did you do? what worked? what did not? what do you do next?

    • have something tangible - a demo or visual aid

  • daily progress tracking - a feq quick bullet points to summarize what you did that day, every day. trace progress towards goals!

  • [[push]] [[gitea]]
    • [[vera]] installed gitea this weekend; just set it up so it's serving on https://git.anagora.org. Signups (username+password works just fine) open!
    • [[mirroring]] works great! simple to set up
      • I wonder how often it syncs -- if often enough, this could be a good UI for [[agora bridge]]
    • [[wiki]] for each repo gets stored in a 'hidden' repo associated with it: add .wiki before .git in the URL to clone
  • [[push]] [[systemctl]]
    • systemctl list-unit-files | grep enabled to list all enabled services (add --user for user-scoped)
      • a bit weird this isn't... shorter? but oh well
  • [[flancians]]

  • When I'm first learning about some new thing, X, I get a lot more value in someone I know saying "I like X" or "I dislike X" or "I'm interested in X" or "I something X" than a detailed objective description of what X is.

  • [[Birds of prey]] are also known as raptors!

    • [[Peregrin falcons]] are the fasted members of the animal kingdom. They can travel at 242 miles per hour!
    • [[Condors]] have wing spans up to 2.9m!
