How a Face Transplant Transformed a Young Woman’s Life
How a Transplanted Face Transformed Katie Stubblefield’s Life -- This story is difficult to look at. Yet we are asking you to go on the remarkable journey of how a young woman received a face transplant because it reveals something profound about our humanity. Our face conveys who we are, telegraphing a kaleidoscope of emotions. via Pocket on August 19, 2018 at 04:18PM

I’m a very slow thinker | Derek Sivers
I’m a very slow thinker -- When a friend says something interesting to me, I usually don’t have a reaction until much later. When someone asks me a deep question, I say, “Hmm. I don’t know.” The next morning, I have an answer. via Pocket on August 13, 2018 at 10:00AM

The Paradox of Our Safety Addiction / Frank Furedi (The American Interest, 2018/08/01)
“Since the early 20th century, but especially since the 1970s, the regulation of fear through shared moral norms has largely unraveled. As Philip Rieff pointed out as long ago as 1966 in his classic The Triumph of the Therapeutic, it is not theologians or philosophers who now provide authoritative guidelines about the relationship between fear and safety, but psychologists.”

How to Read an RFC

It’s more common than you might think for a developer to look at a statement in an RFC, implement what they see, and do the opposite of what the authors intended.

This is because it’s extremely difficult to write a specification in a manner that can’t be misinterpreted when reading it selectively (as is the case with any holy text).

That’s because in general, specifications are written so that behaviours are overtly specified; in other words, everything that is not explicitly disallowed is allowed. Therefore, reading too much into specifications can unintentionally cause harm, since you’ll be introducing new behaviours that others will have to work around.
