Some interesting links from the last couple of days:
- What happens when you take functional programming concepts and apply them to higher level architecture?
- Turns out, social distancing was a thing during the Black Death
- When might experimental drugs be available for COVID-19?
- A high-signal, low-noise exploration of what makes some coworking spaces successful and others…not so successful.
- When you apply Crossing the Chasm to some companies it doesn’t work quite so well
Lastly, The Virtue of Silence. An excerpt:
Silence is a hard virtue. All the other virtues have the advantage that, when you practice them, people will praise you. Sometimes if your moral system is very different from your friends’ people will attack you for your virtues, but getting attacked by sufficiently horrible people can sometimes be just as gratifying as praise. But if you stay silent, there’s no praise and no attacks. By definition, no one even knows you made a courageous moral choice.
I recommend reading the whole thing.
