What You Can't Say
Discusses moral fashions that come and go. These can often by identified by being things you cannot say.

Very good example is this: most, if not all, of your ideas are something most other contemporary people agree with. This is too much to be a coincidence; you have not arrived at these same ideas independently. Many of the ideas are very likely to be wrong.

The article discussed multiple methods for identifying moral fashions:

Move Fast and Fix Things | GitHub Engineering
Anyone who has worked on a large enough codebase knows that technical debt is an inescapable reality: The more rapidly an application grows in size and complexity, the more technical debt is accrued. With GitHub’s growth over the last 7 years, we have found plenty of nooks and crannies in our codebase that are inevitably below our very best engineering standards. But we’ve also found effective and efficient ways of paying down that technical debt, even in the most active parts of our...

Why a Flat Organizational Structure will Fail as You Grow
Many companies have moved away from flat organization structure. Here are some reasons why flat organization structure does not work.

#1: You can’t manage everyone yourself
Flat structure works well for small companies but fails when there are 100+ people because you cannot know anymore what others are working on. Coordinating actions becomes impossible.

#2: Unspoken lines of communication & decision making form
If you do not have an explicit structure, in practice you will have an implicit structure. There is even a study from 1960s about this by Jo Freeman: “This apparent lack of structure too often disguised an informal, unacknowledged and unaccountable leadership that was all the more pernicious because its very existence was denied.”

#3: You miss or become overwhelmed by problems
Employees need to talk to some superior for practical issues, this is simply not feasible if there is only CEO and 100 employees.

#4: You waste time re-inventing the wheel
Re-inventing organization is a waste of time if that is not your main business. Old and tried solutions are good enough in practice.

#5: Important decisions can become a mess
There is no accountability in a flat org. Somebody needs make decisions about cuts and firing people.

Some good quotes:

“You have to make sure you never confuse the hierarchy that you need for managing complexity with the respect that people deserve.

Because that’s where a lot of organizations go off track, confusing respect and hierarchy, and thinking that low on hierarchy means low respect; high on the hierarchy means high respect. So hierarchy is a necessary evil of managing complexity, but it in no way has anything to do with respect that is owed an individual.” (Mark Templeton, CEO of Citrix)

"Simplicity is the key to excellence" says Dieter Rams
"If it's not beautiful, it's not sustainable. Aesthetic attraction… is an environmental imperative" -Lance Hosey

Beauty is hard to define and subjective, which is why "why I have always tended to steer well clear from this discussion about beauty and argued instead for a design that is as reduced, clear and user-oriented as possible, and simply more bearable for a longer period of time."

HSB explained
Introduces HSB color space (Hue - Saturation - Brightness)

RGB is just another way to parametrise RGB. It does this in a very practical way.

Hue ranges from 0 to 356, with 0 corresponding to red, S and B go from 0 to 100.

Brightness B is not the same thing as lightness. For example, when brightness is at 100 it is still possible to make the tone lighter, but not without changing hue and saturation.

Brightness is simply the highest of RGB mapped to 0-100.

Saturation is defined as max(RGB) - min(RGB) / max(RGB). Thus if any RGB is 0 then saturation is always 100.

The last example is really illuminating: take a brownish orange (RGB 200,120,60) and increase brightness to max. Few things to note:

- brightness can be increased until R is 255 because increasing it further would not be possible without changing the relative max(RGB) and min(RGB) which would change saturation

- because the relative proportions of RGB remain, hue does not change either

On the other hand, changing saturation keeps the highest of RGB put (which fixes brightness) and just changes the bottom two of RGB.

Color in UI Design: A (Practical) Framework – Medium
Darker tones have both more saturation S and less brightness B that the original color. (This is similar to shadows in real world).

This is curious: just adding black is not enough, because it would just decrease brightness. On the other hand, to create a lighter tone adding white _does_ do the correct thing: increase brightness and decrease saturation. Thus to create darker tones you need to _remove_ white, although that is hard to imagine. Adding black is not the opposite operation for adding white, as this would equal to adding gray (both operations decrease saturation).

Movie Review: There’s a Vast Cowspiracy about Climate Change - The Equation
Good review by a proper scientist who himself also tries to reduce global use of beef.

Only 11% of global GHG are attributed to agriculture, not 51% as claimed in the movie. Main reasons for the wrong number is that CO2 released in respiration by cows is also included (false because that CO2 would be released anyway when the plant dies), and that the weight of methane is 72 times that of CO2, not 25 times as normally (the different weight comes from looking at the effect during the next 20 years instead of normal 100 hundred; methane breaks naturally in 10-20 years but CO2 does not).
