just a note to the programmers on here: if your work involves ai, neural networks, or other expensive algorithms designed to replace human judgement, consider how much it's truly meant to be more equitable and/or efficient and whether it meets that goal. if it doesn't and you're just automating existing judgement at great expense, the purpose of including a neural network is to obfuscate culpability

this is not theoretical

It never ceases to amaze me how simple code can be once you understand the problem you're solving.

A customer just literally wrote these words to me in an email: "I meant what I said when drunk last year."

I have spent all day on video conferencing calls.

3000-word blog post I started writing literally a month ago is all queued up to be published on Monday!

wow, aggressive...

There's a readme in our repository with the subheading "no really" and it might just be my favorite thing in a readme.

Sometimes I think to myself: "Maybe software engineers shouldn't be allowed to use computers." Today is one of those days.

Anytime someone says "I guarantee it", I always ask "Am I going to like the way I look?"

(reads a document someone wrote at work)

Ugh, this word vomit smells really bad.

Sometimes you really just need to complete the thing that's been on your TODO list and keeps getting delayed...

Software that makes it easy to do the wrong thing and hard to do the right thing is my nemesis.

I'm trying to have an email conversation with a travel agent about a trip for me and my wife, and the agent keeps removing my wife from the To line...

It might be a problem how many times the word "variety" appears in this document so far.

I am having Thoughts about Package Repositories and things are going rapidly downhill.
