this person’s actions directly led to every full-time engineer at capital one being required to get AWS certification. a lot of folks griped about it but i was only too happy to have someone pay for something i’d been thinking about getting for awhile. anyways, i don’t buy their white hat hacker excuse but the 30 years sought after also seems excessive.
this video confirmed the biases i have against carbon offsets, notably around fraud and disjointed incentives. however i also was surprised at the sheer amount of initiatives and approaches groups are taking to tackle the problem. i still think some sort of regulatory framework will be necessary before mass adoption or before i ever consider buying them 🌳
filed a report w/google maps last month that they mislabeled a fire break as a road when the real road was a ¼ mile south. so what did #google do? they just labeled both w/the same name which will definitely not lead to confusion.

it’s what I’ve been advocating for for years in my roles as a hiring manager. create a process, get buy in, adjust as need be but most importantly _follow the process_. it’s mind blowing that a C level thinks they can judge a developer’s skills and potential just thru a 15m coffee chat #hiring #interviewing
so meta, which is taking a 50% cut of dev earnings, is an “ally” while apple with its 30% cut is somehow doing a “disservice”. my guess is epic has simply inked a much better deal with meta.

it's as if the Stasi adopted stack ranking (unfortunately can't find any non-paywalled articles on this)
aside from the nation and jacobin, there's very little liberal/left of center media, just this giant homogenized middle that keeps getting pulled rightward as it concedes ground to reactionary politicians in a pointless exercise of appeasement.
so it’s refreshing to see folks like dougj over at balloon juice getting some long overdue recognition.
unfortunately, this does mean the cletus safaris will continue to make nyt front page news #uspol
Woke up at 5:30am to light the charcoal and load the pork spare ribs in my new offset smoker 🐖
Took about 10 hours total from lighting the charcoal to pulling the ribs out 🍖
About 5 lbs. of charcoal and the same in hickory and cherry were used 🪵
The Stall lasted nearly 5 hours ⏳
And yes they’re delicious 😋
looks like the music has stopped with the recent great resignation/reshuffling musical chairs. anecdotal but the amount of recruiter spam i got went from a dozen a week to zero around late march/early april. and as a hiring manager, im seeing a huge amount of applications come in for our open roles.
