The startup you are working at is out of runway, because the leadership made bad decisions and can't raise the next series.

You're asked to sign an NDA before the business goes under.

Do you do it?

@twodarek All good questions. Let's assume they are out of money and options are so diluted you're not really getting anything. Management was just being bad at business and being managers, but not criminal.

Check the wind speed, friends!!!

@WTL So. cold.

@WTL I even saw the snow and dust devils whipping down the road, but didn't add this together to the known temps. We have a weather station on our property. Just poor, poor planning.

I love how doctor's offices ask about family history, like it's completely normal for generations of families to get diagnosed for their medical problems, get the treatment they need, and talk about them with openly with each other.

@amcasari@hachyderm.io avatar

For me, filling out these forms involves text messages with my mom to untangle the narrative history of what people died of or what they may have struggled with that was described only with Midwest and Appalachia coded medical language.

It's like reading Victorian novels and trying to translate 19th century maladies into modern day language.

One day I'm just going to have to sit down and build this generational history for my kids in a secure way, so they don't have to do this.

@grimalkina ❤️ It's just a LOT to ask an individual, especially someone sitting in an office wondering "How does my answer impact my care? How this professional believes or trusts me? Is there a flag that I am missing? What don't I know?"

It's A LOT.

From our local youth Nordic skiing league:

What's your process for vetting a new open source dependency before adding it to your project?

I'm interested in language too: do you have a different process for evaluating dependencies written in JavaScript/Python/Go/Rust etc?

amcasari,
@amcasari@hachyderm.io avatar

@luis_in_brief @simon It would be easier to figure out 2️⃣ if you had a nice tree to examine rather than the n-degree hairball it usually is.

amcasari,
@amcasari@hachyderm.io avatar

@luis_in_brief No blame detected.

Even with the best tooling and abstraction, I agree that this is a truly complex problem to ask any single person to navigate. Glad Simon asked the follow on language ecosystem question.

(I'm always curious about the internal + learned heuristics that people use for "this looks good to me!" before adding it in, especially by project.)

When someone asks about my 5-10 year professional plan, I can only think about how many winters and summers I have left before my kids leave home.

Leaving work for night skiing and burritos is really feeling way more important than pretty much anything else these days.
