A short list of things I’ve learned in my fifty-five years on this planet, which has been sitting in my drafts bin for 2 years.
- Not everyone who wanders is lost.
- Assuming everyone who wanders is lost could mean that you’re lost.
- If you hate Coke, it does not automatically mean you love Pepsi.
- Newer is not automatically better.
- If there’s a salesperson involved, it’s because it needed selling.
- Work is never really eliminated. It’s just moved around.
- You can’t truly appreciate something until you’ve worked for it.
- The more legs a creature has, the more love it has. Except when it gets past 8 legs, then it’s scarry.
- Most people complain most often about things they know the least about.
- The best programming language hasn’t been invented yet.
- Every generation wants the next to think that they had all the fun.
- Every generation thinks they had to work harder than the next.
- If it doesn’t cut expenses, or increase revenue, it’s probably junk.
- Fixing bugs is not refactoring.
- Chances are good that a reboot will fix it.
