  • Baby Sack as Coat

    January 17th, 2015
    baby, kids
    When I'm traveling with Lily, and I don't need to carry more than fits in my backpack, my favorite way to move her is just to hold her in my arms. It's cuddlier, she can be more mobile, and it's less hassle. As it's gotten into winter, though, she needs some amount of bundling up. She could wear a regular coat when we're out like this, but we spend a lot of time going in and out of buildings, buses, and subway cars, which involves large swings in temperature. I don't like leaving her bundled up for a long ride on the Red Line, but getting her in and out of a proper coat or snowsuit is annoying. I've been using something that's more of an insulated sack:

    This was a hand-me-down that was designed as a stroller/carseat bunting bag, but it works well for this purpose. Except it has various holes in the bottom intended for carseat or stroller straps, and little feet can poke out and get cold. I sewed these up, in a way that would be easily reversable if we ever wanted to use the bag for its original purpose:

    I really like how light it is, and how small it gets when I stuff it into my backpack.

    (When I need my arms free, for doing stuff or carrying things, though, front carriers are great.)

    Decision theory and dynamic inconsistency

    Here is my current take on decision theory: When making a decision after observing X, we should condition (or causally intervene) on statements like “My decision algorithm outputs Y after observing X.” Updating seems like a description of something you do…

    10x (engineer, context) pairs

    Your actual output depends on a lot more than just how quickly you finish a given programming task. Everything besides the literal coding depends deeply on the way you interact with the organization around you.
