Sounds like my work here is done.
Coders at Work shaped me a lot as an early coder It gave me a bias against C++ It helped give a sense of history of the field It taught me binary search debugging It enshrined The Art of Computer Programming as an Object of Interest

idk y'all if we started firing every comedian because of their racist/sexist/homophobic/transphobic/xenophobic/fat phobic etc jokes we might end up with a lot of great comedy from traditionally underrepresented comedians with fresh takes who deserve a shot. slippery slope.

This is pretty dark. But possibly accurate.
man, covid. it’s just going on and on and on. we all feel so cooped up. when it’s finally under control & we all relax, things are going to be WILD. the roaring thirties.

first it was mandatory road maintenance, then it was compulsory school education, finally it was forced rural electrification. it's long past time for brave patriots to stand up and resist government tyranny wherever they see it

This is a good rant.
I need to rant for a minute about why I'm so passionate about climate fiction, PARTICULARLY kidlit cli-fi. Do you think youths don't realize the world is burning? Do you think kids under 18 magically are unaware they're breathing wildfire smoke and hunkering before hurricanes? 🧡

It's funny to see engineers in the US bickering about location based pay after being told by so many over the years that it's fair that I was getting paid a small fraction for doing basically the same job just because I lived in India. Pay *must* be value based, not location.

For some reason I assumed everyone knew about that book. (Why? Dunno.) Anyway it's a great explanation of how our public schools are so unequal. I'm pretty sure it still holds today, three decades later. Maybe because not enough people read it back then.

deputizing citizens to suppress the rights of other citizens while courts say β€œour hands are tied if private citizens are suppressing rights” is some real 1876 shit

A very, very impressive cluster randomized trial. Very hard to do! See thread for findings.
With dozens of researchers at Yale, Stanford, Berkeley and IPA and several other organizations, we ran a cluster randomized trial involving almost 350,000 people and 600 villages in Bangladesh to assess the impact of community masking on COVID.

"Court packing is a radical change" yeah well so is nullifying Roe via a late-night shadow-docket move without even writing an opinion
