Technology and the Virtues: Change Yourself, Change the Future – mssv
"In Mengzi’s view, the majority of human beings are numb to the threat to our own dignity posed by the ethically compromised ways in which we allow ourselves to live. We all share the beggar’s natural inclination to preserve his own dignity, but due to the relative comfort of our lives this inclination is no longer actively engaged, it is not part of our daily awareness. This failure to habitually care for our self-respect and moral dignity results in a lack of moral courage; when presented with a choice between giving up some material or social comfort to which we are accustomed, and surrendering even more of our moral respectability, our will to endure the former to save the latter is lacking. I expect that many readers will find Mengzi’s point no less resonant in our contemporary world."

alanbato praising Sumana's work on PyPI
"I enjoyed contributing to PyPI's relaunch effort a lot, and I have to thank @brainwane's PM and community efforts for a big part of it.
It really feels different when there's an organized and formal approach to OSS project management.
But that's just my 2 cents :)"

Everybody’s Gone To The GUADEC – This is not your bugtracker.
"I had an interesting discussion with Robert Ancell about acquiring domain expertise too late in a project to fix the design decisions made earlier on (which has happened to me a fair few times). While working on LightDM, he avoided this trap by building a thorough integration test suite early on; this allowed him to refactor with confidence as he discovered murky corners of display management. As I understand it (sorry if I’ve misremembered from the noisy bus ride!), he wrote a library which essentially shims every syscall. This made it easier to mock and exercise all the complicated interactions the display manager has with many different parts of the OS via many IPC mechanisms."

"The best assets I ever ran weren’t in it for money,” Skinner said. “They had this urge to be part of something bigger. It wasn’t patriotism—they just wanted to be part of a high-functioning team.”
