I find it painful working without it now. At the very least it’s great autocomplete. And for some tedious things it’s such a time saver, eg complicated regular expressions

“If you saddle them with mess after mess to fix without a path to greater things, even if you pay them well, you’ll lose the truly ambitious high performer who feels uninvested-in and directionless.”

Great post on managing high performers. Advice #1: manage them! “Doing and coaching are two separate skills; you can help someone improve without being better than them” https://blog.staysaasy.com/p/managing-high-performers

"In case you are wondering where v1.14.1 went, let's just say, the continuous integration gods have not been good to us." If you're building in the open you might as well replace BS with humor, love to see it https://github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum/releases/tag/v1.14.2

iPads don't need faster CPUs, they need a more open developer ecosystem where it's possible for app developers to actually build a business. As it is the hardware is wasted as a netflix device.

It’s a mindset shift that hiding spam happens at a different layer in permissionless network.

I guess this actually just points out the ridiculousness of someone just reading out written statements for reporters https://www.theguardian.com/technology/article/2024/may/03/ukraine-ai-foreign-ministry-spokesperson

I don't think those are opportunities, if they're just potential features of a twitter clone. Opportunities are a different type of client altogether. E.g. who's building something discord-like on Farcaster? Maybe leveraging the social graph but with private messages?

I hope you did that before it got too much sun, looks nice but some avalanche risk. Also I don't see an up-track, did you bootpack up the rocky side?

“investing in R&D is a way to buy a sort of talent buffer: when business is good, researchers can focus on things that won't be practical for a decade, but when the business is threatened, there's a talent bench that can be redirected…” https://capitalgains.thediff.co/p/moonshotsorbuybacks

The accepted wisdom for how to keep people motivated is “autonomy, mastery and purpose”. But there’s a 4th thing: being surrounded by great people. To keep “A players” motivated make sure they’re surrounded with only “A players”.

Also, feedback vs. commentary, and “commentary generally has few positive impacts”

Very nice photo. My daily allowance is a paltry 368 $DEGEN today but it's yours. 🎩 Also here are my tracks down the Vice President. Sadly didn't summit because weather was coming in. 😀

This is the other real value of the rollup-centric roadmap, besides scaling: it’s the ability to experiment, see what works, and evolve https://x.com/dmihal/status/1783111817608495418?s=46
