Dan Ariely: On Dating & Relationships | Talks at Google - YouTube
- you can only reap some benefits if you think long-term: you need to invest and commit (e.g. daily apartment lease + renovation; dating is the same)
- many people overlook the transition costs of not being in a relationship: the search is an opportunity cost
- optimize for the ending: vacation, date, etc, because we place disproportionate value in it
- to get to know someone better, engage in shared experiences with them

- run your containers on bare metal: you don't wan't VMs underneath, that defeats the purpose.

To Err is Human - Alex Liu on Vimeo
- expected exceptions: things you throw and can reasonably recover from
- when throw'ing an exception use new Error: provides callstack and other details
- errors can bubble via sync and async interfaces, for consistency you probably want to default to async handling (pass error callbacks)
- global handlers are (probably) a bad idea because you can't reason about the app-state
- unexpected errors are hard (impossible?) to recover from and should probably crash the app
