i think helix might actually be good enough at this point for me to give switching away from vim a shot - being able to actually fix bugs or add features in it on my own without having to interact with 80's-era c is a huge draw

i just realized why the vibe of kubernetes feels so recognizable to me - it's because kubernetes is not a control plane, it is a framework for writing control planes, in the same sort of way that people get really into game development not because they have an idea for a game but because making a game engine sounds fun (it's me, i am people)

just got done playing through the entire starcraft 1 single player campaign on the steam deck - it is still shocking to me how well this works

As absurd as it seems, a lot of people who've spent a bunch of time in tech really can't imagine what it looks like for something to not be profit maximizing and not switch to an ad supported engagement-boosting feed.

I've been on the lookout for this kind of implicit, general accidental, shift of values (corruption?) ever since I noticed this happened to law students back when I was in school.

As a group, incoming law students and 3Ls have very different goals and values.

my mastodon timeline is finally filling up to the point that it feels like my twitter feed again, but cozier. i'm happy!

One of the things that I think is sad about the decimation of Twitter eng is that Twitter was doing a lot of interesting (and high ROI) eng work that, at younger companies, is mostly outsourced at great cost.

A few examples off the top of my head:

The now gutted HWENG group was so good at designing low power servers that, in a meeting with Intel folks, discussing reference designs vs. what Twitter was doing, the Intel folks couldn't believe the power envelope Twitter achieved.

I deeply enjoyed this comic from S. Mirk about names (and also bodies, gender, pandemic gayness, being your own final boss):
