Thanksgiving Day Hoagie
Thanksgiving Day Hoagie
My brain is much more powerful in those idle moments when I let it drift. It’s quite possible every good idea I’ve ever had came while walking, showering, or driving, giving space for all those background cycles that have been chugging along to report in to my conscious mind.
I visited Hong Kong in 2018, before the protests, and I’m glad that I did. I think Noah is right– none of us will ever get to go to Hong Kong.
Wow. The end to Avatar: The Last Airbender was really action packed, and quite satisfying.
I need a new mask. Link your favs. Thanks.
I think there are three groups that should be addressed at once by any policy looking to provide relief to student debt holders.
These three groups are more relevant than income brackets for understanding the moral basis for debt relief. Student debt relief is not about strict income redistribution, but instead about:
That’s how I’d pursue tackling debt relief as solid stimulus during COVID, while bending the cost curve on higher education and not leaving behind many Americans who don’t end up in higher education.
I love my job and I can’t imagine leaving by my choice, but I have been worried about what I will do next practically from the day I started.
Just me or is this normal?
Finally listened to @jessgartner and got out to Herring Run
This computer has been incredibly effective and still rarely gets in my way. But I really, really want a new one.
For sure you should be watching Rick’s new YouTube show, Sweet Heat
The prioritization of restaurants and bars over schools when it comes to closures is a massive failure.
School systems leaders are some of the most important people to coordinate with as part of the closure/reopening efforts. Yet they have less voice than restaurant lobby.
If climate change doesn’t terrify you, you’re not paying any attention. The arctic is melting.
I find Paris’s moves on transit and climate to be pretty inspiring. I am also deeply sad that I cannot imagine an American city heading down a similar path.
I am finding myself quite vulnerable to the psychology of monthly prices versus paid up front.
It really bugs me how many reporters gleefully write about how unimportant high school math is compared to whatever they decided to learn in college.
One of the most important times to say no as a product manager is when I’m having a hard time clarifying exactly what people want.
Just ask me about “position control”.
I have been watching Fox News to see how they covered the speech. I don’t think I realized just how sycophantic their coverage had become. Tripping over themselves to praise Trump and twist themselves to say “voter fraud could have happened!”
Close elections are brutal, but they also help to dispute the narrative that your vote doesn’t matter. That’s always been a crap argument, especially since closer down ballot elections are hugely impactful, but all the more so when states are within 1000 votes.
It seems totally reasonable to me to tax companies whose executive pay is in excess of 100x the median employee.
Brandy is tired of waiting for the end of this week.
We just started watching Kim’s Convenience and three episodes in this is excellent self-care.
Disney should release the next Mandalorian episode now. We’ve earned it.
At this point, whatever the ultimate result, it’s clear that America is completely broken. There’s no way this should have been close, and the lack of repudiation and clear defeat of Trumpism feels like a real doom scenario.
