Twelectra Wenn man hustet, muss man den Ärmel mit dem Hamster drin so mitbewegen, dass er nicht rausplumst und alles für einen großen Spaß hält.

matt_blackwell My best tip on how to give better quantitative presentations is to (a) use more plots and (b) build up your plots on multiple overlays, as in:

- Just x-axis (explain it)
- Add y-axis (explain it)
- Add 1 data point (explain it)
- Plot the rest of the data (explain it)

smeschmesch ich hätte total gern Fotos von meinen Großeltern, die zeigen:

xbg Wegen dieser scheiß political correctness wird einem neuerdings im Supermarkt "schönen Feiertag" gewünscht statt "erfolgreichen internationalen Kampftag der Arbeiterklasse zur Überwindung des Schweinesystems und Vernichtung der Bonzenklasse bis zum Sieg der Revolution Genossen"!

frachtschaden Wie gut ist es eigentlich, auch auf dem Laptop die mobile Twitter-Seite statt des komplett überfrachteten Desktop-Interfaces zu benutzen.

wordspinster I dreamt I was writing a self-help book about decluttering your vocabulary--'if a word doesn't give you joy, let it go'. Now I'm wondering if there's a competition for the worst book pitch ever

@einkleinesniji Weil "Viertel" ein Substantiv ist und "halbe" ein Adjektiv.

drhonor Hilarious comment from today's student teaching capstone presentations:

"I learned teaching is exhausting. Before this, I worked in construction. I could pour concrete all day and still come home and get stuff done. After a day of teaching, all I could do was stare at the wall."

sarahmei (Seriously - the textual editor folks [vim, emacs, etc.] constantly place themselves above IDE users.)

There's also preferred language (woe be to you as a PHP developer coming into a shop that does basically anything else), & location in the stack (HTML/CSS is less prestigious).

sarahmei 2. Think ahead of time of what dynamics might exist, and think carefully about where you are relative to each other in those dynamics.

The list above is a good start, but there are many others: national origin, native language, external signs of religion, editor preference...

sarahmei 1. The more dynamics you're on the upward side of, the more you take cues from your pair.

Let them speak first. Be mindful of interrupting. Catch your reactions to their words on the way out, & do a post-processing pass to consider whether your reaction is due to the dynamic.

sarahmei - Many people have motivators that don’t mesh well with this system, including pushing frontiers via more research-y code, being in solo ‘flow,’ & using new technology.
- Full-time pairing is hard across time zones. Having everyone in the same time zone is often unrealistic.

sarahmei So let’s start with the obvious issues:
- Very few people can pair that much. My job was essentially talking for 8 hours a day.
- Many people can’t do a 9-6 fixed schedule. Parents, in particular, because no daycare place stays open past 6. This is ultimately why I left Pivotal.
