Against Steelmanning | Thing of Things
I hate the word 'steelmanning.' Steelmanning refers to arguing with the best possible version of someone's argument, even if it's not the one they presented. Put like that, it sounds really good! After all, we all think it's important not to misrepresent people [citation needed]; trying to present the best possible version of someone's argument…

There’s a pattern most observers of human interaction have noticed, common enough to have earned its own aphorism: “nice guys finish last.” Or, refactored, “bad actors are unusually good at winning.” The phenomenon shows up in business, in politics, in war, in activism, in religion, in parenting, in nearly every collaborative form of human undertaking.…

Mechanical Sympathy: Simple Binary Encoding
The design principles drive the implementation of a codec that ensures messages are streamed through memory without backtracking, copying, or unnecessary allocation. Memory access patterns should not be underestimated in the design of a high-performance application. Low-latency systems in any language especially need to consider all allocation to avoid the resulting issues in reclamation. This applies for both managed runtime and native languages. SBE is totally allocation free in al...

Millie Vs Fence — Often people don’t want to kick people out of a...
Often people don’t want to kick people out of a semi-public space (e.g. my old dojo) because it would be mean/exclusionary/bad for them/contribute to a culture of judgement that is bad for the people that remain.  These are reasonable fears.  But I think it’s important to keep in mind that the people that are most hurt by allowing bad actors to come into your space are the ones just above the cut off line*.

There’s No Such Thing As A Protest Vote — Medium
Throwing away your vote on a message no one will hear, and which will change no outcome, is sometimes presented as ‘voting your conscience’, but that’s got it exactly backwards; your conscience is what keeps you from doing things that feel good to you but hurt other people. Citizens who vote for third-party candidates, write-in candidates, or nobody aren’t voting their conscience, they are voting their ego, unable to accept that a system they find personally disheartening actually applies to them.
