Flipping the Script on Recruiters — NPND :: No Pilots, No Demos
When a recruiter contacts you, ask them to sign up for YOUR mailing list. Email them when you're looking for your next gig. This is an interesting approach, especially for someone who's contracting. For a full-time employee it probably has less utility since you don't look for jobs as frequently.

Crash-Only Thinking
"Crash-only means there is no such thing as gracefully starting and stopping non-trivial parts of your life or business. You have to crash what you’re doing and recover in a more promising direction. The fact that it is a crash means that, unlike normal decisions, there is a sharply increased probability of not coming out the other end."

ferd.ca -> Queues Don't Fix Overload
"The real problem is that everyone involved used queues as an optimization mechanism. With them, new problems are now part of the system, which is a nightmare to maintain. Usually, these problems will come in the form of ruining the end-to-end principle by using a persistent queue as a fire-and-forget mechanisms or assuming tasks can't be replayed or lost. You have more places that can time out, require new ways to detect failures and communicate them back to users, and so on."
