This month was wrapping up a big project at work. Tying up loose ends and getting some time off. I took an extra long weekend and got away to a secluded area where there was no cell service.
It was also my birth month and I did a lot of reflecting on the last several years of my life. The ups and downs. The work I’ve done and the work I wanted to do but haven’t been able to.
Each week on Wednesday I posted a new blog. I focused on a couple things I do during one-on-ones this month. Here is a recap
I read a few books, but nothing stood out as worth of a review for this section. I did read a book that really turned me off of startup culture, being overly aggressive and relentless in the pursuit of making some derivative software to address a non-problem all in the name of making millions for sacrificing hours and years of your life.
I did watch a bunch of movies this month. Again, nothing that stood out as worthy of a review.
Literal looks like its going to be a nice clone to Goodreads, but focused more on the books and bookstores and less on the forced social experiences.
Don’t Create Chaos - I loved this article, and it is something I am continuously thinking about. Strive for measurable outcomes, Insist all meetings have agendas, confirm complicated verbal communication in writing to solidify it, avoid using power to sidestep team decisions. Fantastic!
Why Write ADRs A great write up from GitHub on why and when to use Architecture Decision Records.
A clean start for the web I agree, we need a reboot. Not just in the platform of the web with a primary focus on privacy, but as Tom puts it here a separation of document and application web. Very thought provoking and inspiring to see what things are happening right now.
