If there are no backup singers... and you are the only singer... is it really important for you to specify that you are a "lead" singer?2
"Hi. I just started programming - and I typed things and they don't look right. I think it's something to do with the web browser.... firefox does... and chrome does......"
"Hey I have problems - can you help me?"
"Hi. What are they?"
"God! Geez... I was just asking for help. No one ever helps me never mind."2
It's great to know that there's really THAT much room for improvement.
I think we might actually need WOMEN around here...2
Every time I tweet something... I regret it - and then I go back to find it and delete it - or add an update comment... and I can't find it...
It is a ghost? Or is Twitter's UI an inside joke?
Have I said this before? The Google - everything and the Facebook - everything... is SO FUCKED. Seriously... why would anyone ever want to work somewhere with weekend-bootcamp- hackathon quality user interface? You have to be an "expert" in their exact interface of the month just to give them money.1
"Hey, don't promote yourself - where I'm trying to promote myself... ok? Have some respect."
What the fuck is wrong with you fucking morons. This is the INTERNET.
IT IS FOR SHARING THINGS.
Just because you feel special / doesn't mean - anything.
This isn't YOUR soapbox. And even if it was... look at your feet you dumb fuck. You are the one standing on it.
!rant... but just gotta say... this new M1 MacBook feels fucking awesome. And I already had a late 2019 MacBook. The actual feel is different... right? Not just the chip? But it's super super fast. Also NO fan when I record screencasts...
It's super fucking rad... and - yeah. Just kinda want to shout that. Maybe I'm crazy...10
Hook up plaid and a few APIs to a half-assed MVP. OK! I guess we’re a bank now. Hope that’s enough... because now we’re just going to let it ride and see what happens... - Bank Novo
Is it even possible to buy music anymore? This "Music" / iTunes store... is a total fucking mystery now.15
Came to rant about a thing not working only to try and post an image here 3 times... ugh... what a fucking day.2
The answer to your question isn't going to help if you don't understand the problem - or - the answer.
That moment when you realize that writing “that moment when...” is because you’re too passive and insecure to just say what you really want to say...7
“Hi. I’m trying to PM you.”
“Ok. I don’t accept friend requests - because people ask me private questions - and the whole point of this public forum is to ask questions publicly.”
“But if I could just show you my link and ask you some questions...”1
If you take a crappy website... and then you draw out a few screens of that visual design... and change some colors and borders... (and it not even a real interface) (just a screenshot of a photoshop document) (and it doesn't work) (and it's basically the same shitty interface) (and it's not real) (and you never tested it with users)
...and you are feeling like you have imposter syndrome, it's because you aren't a UX designer. You need help. You are deeply delusional.
We can help you - but you have to be really honest with yourself...
You're going to have to do some real work, read some books, and accept that *praise* - is not the goal.9
Reddit... is so confusing to me. Can't post until you've posted enough... ok... I get it, like a green-card. I have to be in the US for 7 years before I can get a green-card, but I'm not allowed to be in the US. BUT
Seriously... answer me this:
What do I write here... if I want to ask the moderator a question? I've sent a bunch and I'm starting to think that it is my fault. I'm not going to lead the witness here: just please explain it to me.
Will this send it to all of the mods? Do I need to pick 1 mod and put their name there? Please... help me understand. This just shuts my brain off when I read it.6
If we were talking - and then all of the sudden, I don’t talk to you anymore... it’s probably because you ignored my advice and chose to go to an especially bad boot camp. Now - that’s fine! But the reason I’m not talking to you is because I just don’t know how to say anything positive about your terrible decision and the terrible school... so - I’m just not saying anything at all.8
All you have to do to be a successful internet business / is to make something that isn’t insanely fucking terrible in every way... or make something insanely terrible... but have so much money and coverage and control that there is really no way to fail.
And of course / option 2 requires a bunch of mindless developers with no regard for what their creations do to the world.4
I know there are a lot of “devs” out there who only feel responsible for the ‘code’ - but you aren’t.
You’re responsible for the end product too.
When you help build a steaming pile of shit - it’s your fucking fault. It’s not the boss’s fault - it’s everyone who let it happen’s fault.
These hell-holes like Kaiser Permanente and Covered California - and nearly all the government portals and the banks... and almost everything I can think of - are way past unacceptable. You are hurting everyone.
If you are putting these pieces of trash into the word: you need to rethink your life. If there is a hell, you are going there.
Wake the fuck up.
You’re going to have to use these things when you are older. Your kids will have to use them. Your parents will have to use them.
Set an example. Stop making horrible things that don’t work and hurt people.
Start changing - today.13
How many people - and how many days - should it take to put up 1 Facebook ad?
I’m not sure how anything could be really be this terrible...
I think FB knows I don’t like them / and are routing me to the ‘troll’ admin panels.1
I work for Google and Facebook.
Well... is that really true?
Uh... well, does a cow work for a farmer?
Hmmm... not really voluntarily... the cow just kinda gets milked and then the farmer sells its milk.
Yeah. That’s what I do. They milk me for my attention - and then they sell that to corporate advertisers.
Yeah... Hmmm... well, I guess you do work for them... but you don’t get paid...
I can still put it on my resume though, right?10
It you are just starting to learn programming and you are telling everyone else where the best resources are... and what the best practices are... and just repeating everything you hear... and you have “imposter syndrome,” it’s because you are an imposter.
Just enjoy the learning process. It’s not going to end...
Stop being a liar - and you’ll stop feeling like people think you are lying.6
I wish I had been an “ex-Google tech lead” for a week - so that could tell everyone I was “ex Google” as if it were like being a Dr. or something.
When I make a post... and there’s not a single +, I know one of three things:
Either I’m on to something big, no one saw it, or no one pushed +.
So - that makes me feel pretty good.6
