This Week I Learned - 2016 Week 13

Last week post or the whole series.

#1 Unexpectedly Realistic. (Reddit thread). Not entirely true but it always a good time to hit the gym to workout consistently.

#2 Conrad Jon Godly. Simple yet mesmerizing oil painting.

#3 tracker-store and tracker-miner-fs eating up my CPU on every startup. My CPU load have have been high for the past few days. Booting and starting programs have been testing my patience.

#4 An Autobiography of a Blind Programmer. (Reddit thread) If a visually impaired person can learned to code, no one else have other more lame excuses not to do so. His story reminds me of the infamous blind programmer, T.V. Raman, known for creating Emacspeak.

#5 Microsoft's EEE. Good discussion on the Embrace, Extend, and Extinguish strategy by Microsoft. Is history going to repeat itself like wIat happened to OS/2, Netscape, and the Internet Explorer monopoly which held back the web for a few years? People still need to remember that they are is still a for-profit organization. I will remain skeptical until they truly embrace the GNU General Public License.

#6 How do you integrate remote developers? Discussions there are spot on. Unless the company truly embrace remote-first culture and reduce the jealousy and tension from regular employees, otherwise it will not work.
