Nothing Much


This was a couple of days ago.  The weather’s gotten even drabber since.

Today the team and I logged our 1,004th bug.  Having exceeded the thousand threshold, I am no longer able to pull the JIRA data to create my daily report to management.  I win a prize!

I think I might actually not work tonight.

“Panic is a form of hubris.  It comes from the smug feeling that one knows exactly where the world is heading: down.  Bewilderment is more humble and therefore more clear-sighted.  Do you feel like running down the street crying ‘The apocalypse is upon us’?  Try telling yourself, ‘No, it’s not that.  Truth is, I just don’t understand what’s going on in the world.'”

“We are now creating tame humans that produce enormous amounts of data and function as very efficient chips in a huge data-processing mechanism, but these data-cows hardly maximize the human potential.  Indeed, we have no idea what our full human potential is, because we know so little about the human mind.”
