Gosh. It seems like it’s a full time job these days to find a job. Have we completely cooked the application process by attempting to make it so easy to apply for jobs?

Stick to boring architecture for as long as possible, and spend the majority of your time, and resources, building something your customers are willing to pay for.

Thank you Philip C. Quaintrell for another one of your fabulous books. Can’t tell you how much I need this escape right now.

A gorgeous series by Chris Packham. No doubt I’ll be revisiting some of these episodes in the future as there’s way too much to absorb on the first time round.

Reading this list of “spicy takes” by Chris Ferdinandi had me chuckling to myself. Mostly because I could picture a bunch of folk looking like a bulldog chewing on a wasp while reading some of these takes… out of context.
Here’s one as a taster:
Pretty much every modern server-side rendering library (including Node.js) is just reinvented PHP, but worse. 😱

I can’t believe I’ve only found the “Apollo 11 Real-Time Mission Experience” now. This is gorgeously done.

Saw the Oppenheimer movie today. Another incredible piece of work by Christopher Nolan. Mesmerising. Disturbing. Timely.

So, I was reminded about a post I wrote back in 2018. It’s called “Blood, skin and tech wizardry” and is about how I was feeling at the time about the tech industry and my place in it.

If you aren’t in the moment, you are either looking forward to uncertainty, or back to pain and regret.

This shout-out from Cennydd’s article is worth paying attention to:
So now is the time to pay attention to what’s happening with AI and to ask questions. Ask how it is used in your public spaces, your schools, your workplaces, by your police, by your governments, by your militaries. Urge those in power to justify their decisions and discuss the safeguards they have put in place to ensure AI’s effects are positive. The issues involved are too important to be left to technologists.

When I see what’s happening to South Africa at the moment. The country I love dearly. I just want to sob.

Geez, Apple. Really?! Is this what you think humanity needs right now?
