Consider timezones: engineers in Madrid and engineers in San Francisco had almost no overlap in their working hours. Good asynchronous communication was essential.

Over time, I noticed that the teams that were most effective at this scale were the teams that had a strong culture of documentation and automated testing.

As I started to work on my own array of smaller personal projects, I found that the same discipline that worked for large teams somehow sped me up, when intuitively I would have expected it to slow me down.

Here’s how it works in practice:

  1. A news organization (or any organization, let’s just start with news) already asserts ownership of its domain e.g. via its certificate, so we piggyback trust off its domain.
  2. It stands up a Mastodon or other social server at a standard address. I’d propose follow.washingtonpost.com but there’s a bunch of reasons why you might do something else, see below, and uses the agreed well-known autodiscovery protocol to return the address for its Mastodon server (but I don’t see an entry for activitypub or Mastodon yet).
  3. It creates accounts for its staff on its Mastodon server. Nobody else gets an account; the public can’t sign up.

What you get:

  1. Verified accounts. Instead of relying on a third party to “verify” your account by sticking a blue check against your display name, account provenance and “verification” is inherited as a property of the Mastodon server....
  2. Ease of discovery...all a user would have to do, to find Washington Post accounts to follow, would be to know the washingtonpost.com domain. Autodiscovery would let your Mastodon client point itself to the appropriate server.

Not just news organizations...anyone can set up a Mastodon server...the federation means that “official” accounts become “more official” when their server home is hung off the domain of the actual organization.

You wouldn’t need Twitter (or anyone else, really) to verify that the UK Prime Minister’s account is official, because you’d have following.gov.uk as the Mastodon server, which means you can trust that server as much as you trust .gov.uk domains.

Your university or college wants you to have a social media account? Sure, you can have it hosted at following.ucla.edu.

And yes, brands can get in on it. Sure. That way there’s a tiny chance you’re following the Proper Brand Account rather than a Parody Brand Account, which… is probably for the best. Or it’s easier to see that a Parody Account is a Parody Account because you can look at the parent server.

https://www.karlsutt.com/articles/communicating-effectively-as-a-developer/

Communicating effectively as an engineer means empathically increasing the resolution of your writing.

...“low-resolution writing”...There is very little context, too much reliance on pronouns and unclear references. The writing is not emphatic —the reader has to spend extra energy to work out what is being said

Longer-form writing gives you an opportunity to dive deeper into why you are saying what you are saying. It is a chance to educate, to teach, to help understand and to level up.

The quality of the API documentation will carry an astronomical amount of leverage. This leverage will work in both directions. Genuinely helpful documentation is the difference between being swamped by support requests from frustrated API users and significantly increasing the usage of your service. Happy users beget more happy users.

Spoken words get forgotten. Written words are shared, preserved, and become the basis of a company's culture. source

High resolution, empathic writing...You will have to spend more energy to make your writing easy to follow. You will have to grapple with your own confusion and holes in your understanding. You will have to figure out what the appropriate density for your writing is.

It's not about you, though.. It's about them.

Not only does a single recipient benefit from your extra effort, what if ten people read your good work? A hundred? A thousand? What if the company CEO reads it? Taking writing seriously at work or in your organisation and putting in the effort to delight the reader will, over time, compound into a massive body of quality writing that benefits everyone. It is a literal win-win-win

Produce writing you would read with delight if you were on the other end.

We believe that podcasting can not and should not be controlled by Apple and Spotify, and instead support a diverse ecosystem of third-party clients.

I couldn't agree more. Though to be fair to Apple, in all the years since podcasts have been a thing, despite them being one of the main indices, they didn't make any overt attempts to lock down the ecosystem. It's not until companies like Amazon and Spotify tried to make certain content platform exclusives that the ecosystem has started to feel more closed.

https://maggieappleton.com/garden-history

The conversational feed design of email inboxes, group chats, and InstaTwitBook is fleeting – they're only concerned with self-assertive immediate thoughts that rush by us in a few moments...But streams only surface the Zeitgeisty ideas of the last 24 hours...Gardens present information in a richly linked landscape that grows slowly over time...The garden helps us move away from time-bound streams and into contextual knowledge spaces.

The Six Patterns of Gardening:

  1. Topography over Timelines - Gardens are organised around contextual relationships and associative links; the concepts and themes within each note determine how it's connected to others.
  2. Continuous Growth - Gardens are never finished, they're constantly growing, evolving, and changing.
  3. Imperfection & Learning in Public - Gardens are imperfect by design. They don't hide their rough edges or claim to be a permanent source of truth.
  4. Playful, Personal, and Experimental - Gardens are non-homogenous by nature. You can plant the same seeds as your neighbour, but you'll always end up with a different arrangement of plants.
  5. Intercropping & Content Diversity - Gardens are not just a collection of interlinked words...Podcasts, videos, diagrams, illustrations, interactive web animations, academic papers, tweets, rough sketches, and code snippets should all live and grow in the garden.
  6. Independent Ownership - Gardening is about claiming a small patch of the web for yourself, one you fully own and control... If you give it a bit of forethought, you can build your garden in a way that makes it easy to transfer and adapt. Platforms and technologies will inevitably change. Using old-school, reliable, and widely used web native formats like HTML/CSS is a safe bet.

I got serious about consolidating the media my family consumes; I decided to buy blu-ray and DVD copies of all the movies and TV shows we actually cared about, and rip them onto a NAS.

I'm glad I've gone down this path, and become more intentional about my media consumption, especially as companies are deleting already-purchased content from users' media libraries!

I limit it to only look at articles published in the past day since I do this every evening. Think of it like the evening paper. The result is an EPUB file which I then import into my e-book reader.

A few advantages I've found to doing this are:

  • I take a break from the computer.
  • Since the e-book reader is offline, I focus on reading the article and don't have the option to click on links and get distracted browsing the internet.
  • Since I'm already using the e-book reader, it's easy to transition to reading a book.

What have I learned from YC's users, the startups we've funded?

...most startups have the same problems.

...the batch that broke YC was a powerful demonstration of how individualized the process of advising startups has to be.

...founders can be [bad] at realizing what their problems are. Founders will sometimes come in to talk about some problem, and we'll discover another much bigger one in the course of the conversation.

Often founders know what their problems are, but not their relative importance.

Focus is doubly important for early stage startups, because not only do they have a hundred different problems, they don't have anyone to work on them except the founders. If the founders focus on things that don't matter, there's no one focusing on the things that do.

Speed defines startups. Focus enables speed. YC improves focus.

Why are founders uncertain about what to do? Partly because startups almost by definition are doing something new, which means no one knows how to do it yet, or in most cases even what "it" is.

Why commonplace?

Commonplace is an ideal medium for the curation and cultivation of intellectual ideas, thoughts, and knowledge. It’s also a proven and timeless system, tested by folks from a spectrum of backgrounds including authors, professors, and scientists.

  • Remember things
  • Write to recall
  • Understand reading
  • Personal reference system
  • Filter ideas
  • Unleash creativity

Reflecting on your commonplace

The most profound power of your commonplace is being able to thumb through reading and review material. Your commonplace book isn’t just a filing cabinet—it’s an evolving record of your life and observations.

...the kind of web they define themselves against; that kind of bloated, corporate, algorithm-ruled and ad-ridden mess that constitutes the majority of highly-trafficked websites these day.

...for me, the term “Small Web” refers to a couple of main things: independence from tech giants, and websites that are lightweight and high-performance.

Related concepts:

  • A late 90s-style, hand-crafted web
  • Alternative protocols, like Gemini
  • An independent web

Here’s how to read the post:

  • Level 1 — Casual. Read the headlines — figure out the details yourself. Most of this isn’t rocket science.
  • Level 2 — Tutorial. Read the steps underneath the headline. I’ve spelled out every step so that you can save your brain power for something else.
  • Level 3 — Productivity Nerd. Below the tutorial steps, I’ve included discussion of the behavior design implications. This is for true productivity nerds, i.e. the readers of Better Humans.
