I don’t know who needs to hear this but, when you’re using your phone, stop using your pinky as an anchor. It’s destroying your wrist and aggravating your ulnar nerve.

“Hybrid Remote” is not remote, it’s “Regular WFH days”. Still means you have to physically live in the area, which *is for many people, the point of going remote*. People want to live away from expensive, overcrowded areas where the rent is lower, or travel.
not that I'm looking for a new job but...my state of general astonishment at the existence of "hybrid" in-office/wfh jobs continues to grow. you either offer remote or you don't. what is this shit?

Managers, it is up to you to push back in meetings on this, tell HR how your team will actually operate. Stop pretending that having an official policy that your team doesn’t apply in practice is enough for someone who lives in the sticks to accept a job far from their home.

Been doing a lot of stuff with CLIP and VQGAN, I particularly love when it draws fantasy creatures. This one is Cyberpunk Electric Goblin in digital. Goblins and Fae always end up looking perfectly imperfect when done by an AI. #goblincore BTW this is my AI account:

I have to credit the illustrious, beneficent @RiversHaveWings for creating something that finally let me actually engage with machine learning algorithms. I've gone so much deeper since finding their original notebook, and I wouldn't have even gotten started without them. 🙏🙏🙏

Every tech worker would benefit from reading "Education for a Critical Consciousness" by Paulo Friere. It distills centuries of prior work detangling oppressive, extractive systems. The solution is not technological, but sociological; rejecting superiority for solidarity.

Can confirm, I haven’t spoken to a sane person in years
one thing I feel like we're not acknowledging as a society is that everyone is now just completely insane

One of my most powerful management techniques is my ability to quickly devise a solution that is such a terrible, grotesque hack that my engineers are sickened and horrified. Their repulsion to my approach leads them to finding a better, elegant solution that fits the schedule.

How else are you going to build your _own_ understanding if the variable names and comments just give the whole thing away
I don't know about you, but I prefer my code: * unreadable * too long * too complex * with bad names

I have been avoiding actually scrolling Twitter much for about a year now. Therefore, I do not know which Tech Conferences Hath Been Cancelled, nor do I know about The Current Drama. Is this information like… collected somewhere? Or is it a secret in-group shibboleth to know?

If it’s not written down, it’s just another in-group screening criteria thing and not actually about improving Inclusion. Not everyone has the time or inclination to Keep Up With All Of Feminist Dev Twitter- it excludes moms, busy lady execs, people who don’t like Twitter, etc.

I continue to be disappointed in apple’s Foundation series. Literally not a single scene or storyline or character has anything to do with the book. They kept the same nouns and scale, left out the primacy of the Seldon plan and wrote a bunch of random storylines in.

Made a song this morning. soundcloud.app.goo.gl/ftXDsp… The Koto tries to continue business as usual, as the Drums and the Erhu create an atmosphere we’ve all become used to, while the Pipa chimes in with a constant stream of anxiety.

Just to remind everyone my “RL Skinz” tokens are still available, and while it is literally fungible art, they do have much better long-term stability and usefulness than NFTs, plus you never have to explain NFTs with these: lizthe.dev/shop Augment your reality today!
