On the Work front, I feel like I have spent much of my time trying to get to the bottom of a range of new defects that have come with a recent upgrade. I am always intrigued how aspects of the application that have not been fixed or improved are impacted.
Personally, I binged quite a bit this month, including The 100, Stranger Things, Birdman, Moon Knight and The Gray Man. I also listened to Tom Tilley’s memoir Speaking in Tongues. In regards to music, I enjoyed listening to Sam Prekop and John McEntire’s modular album Sons Of.
Here then are some of the posts that have had me thinking:
Wouter Groeneveld discusses his development of the Creative Programming Problem Solving Test (CPPST), a self-assessment test for programmers that measures more than just divergent thinking.
Troy Hunt posits that sometimes we are simply consuming goodwill.
Jon Dron shares his thoughts on how to help the edtech community find its soul again.
Kieran Hebden discusses his epic Spotify playlist, an artefact for listeners to explore.
Clive Thompson thinks about the idea of monocropping and the impact of rewilding beyond just nature.
