Slightly strained caution: authors critical of Christianity need to be careful they're not unfairly targeting people of color.

Business News: Still Too Many Watches In The World, Says Richemont Group
Richemond bought back €249m of luxury watches that dealers had already paid for (but not sold) in a successful attempt to protect prices.

"""
With stock at unhealthy levels, Richemont bit the bullet and bought back the merchandise. "We went specifically to the dealers and repurchased inventory that we oversold, that they overbought, admittedly in different circumstances when the market was booming," Grund explained.

After 5 years and $3M, here's everything we've learned from building Ghost
"""
Building a distributed team is both easier and harder than you might imagine

Our team is spread all over the world, and we have no office in any country. After 5 years I would summarise the overall experience as very positive. The stuff you might imagine is hard generally turns out to be a non-issue, like: How do you know if people are working? How does anything get done? How do you pay people if they live in different countries? What about contracts? — The things people ask about most often all have straightforward answers. In summary: You hire people you can trust, you trust them, and the logistics in between are solved mostly with Slack, Zoom and Github.

The stuff which is actually hard, nobody ever asks about. For instance: How do you know when someone is in a bad mood? How do you deal with loneliness? How do you foster camaraderie? How do you achieve urgency? How do you ever get to know people outside of work when you never spend time with them outside of work?

The point of all this is that ethernet and IP were getting further and further intertwined. They're nowadays almost inseparable. It's hard to imagine a network interface (except ppp0) without a 48-bit MAC address, and it's hard to imagine that network interface working without an IP address. You write your IP routing table using IP addresses, but of course you know you're lying when you name the router by IP address; you're just indirectly saying that you want to route via a MAC address. And you have ARP, which gets bridged but not really, and DHCP, which is an IP packet but is really an ethernet protocol, and so on.

Different approaches to increasing diversity in tech in Western countries:

- attendees: just flat out give some people tickets (few/no legal restrictions, more or less equivalent to quotas, affirmative action)
- speakers: help under-represented groups apply, get selected (bend the rules a bit, perhaps)
- employees: help under-represented groups apply, succeed (same bar for everyone though) (many legal restrictions, ~zero affirmative action)

A 10x engineer isn’t someone who is 10x better than those around them, but someone who makes those around them 10x better.
"""

This is a perfectly fine article, but this isn't what a "10x developer" means: a 10x developer is one who works 10 times as fast as another (e.g. does the same task in 10% of the time).

(Whether or not this person actually exists, or whether you'd want to employ them, is a separate question, but that's what "10x developer" means.)

Who will steal Android from Google? – Steve Yegge – Medium
"""
To summarize the main idea behind this post: Grab needs mobile devs just like everyone else, but those are hard to hire because Android programming is yucky, and everyone knows this except apparently Google, so now the ecosystem is proliferating with competitors trying to make their way the One True Way for programming mobile… which makes it even harder to hire devs because it’s so fragmented.

Chromium Blog: Chrome 63 Beta: Dynamic module imports, async iterators and generators, Device Memory API, and permissions UI changes
"""
Permissions UI changes
When websites need special permissions from a user, they trigger a permission request. Currently these permission requests appear in Chrome for Android as ignorable banners at the bottom of the screen, and developers often show them without considering whether the user has the appropriate context to grant the permission. This results in a distracting user experience, and users ignore or temporarily dismiss these permission prompts more than 90% of the time.
