  • Inscrutable Blog Notes

    June 16th, 2013
    blog  [html]
    When I get an interesting idea that I might want to make into a blog post I'll get out my phone and make a note. I'm generally in a hurry doing this, because I'm in the middle of something else or don't want to be rude to other people in the room by falling into my phone, so I'll write the bare minimum I think I'll need to remind me of the idea later. Sometimes this doesn't work, and I'll completely forget what I meant by something:
    • Charity conversation with economist
    • Vertical wrapping terminals
    • Proximity keys warnings
    • Lobster stomach signaling
    • Knowledge meeting unlock
    Other times I can remember what I was thinking, but a combination of bad spelling, autocorrect, and me being weird means no one else would understand. Even if they do, they might still think they're silly. Julia looked over my notes and made a list of ones she thought were funny:
    • Pigeons have magnets
    • Throw out bad whiteboard markers
    • Pineapple swelling reduce
    • You should try contra dancing
    • Cat droppings
    • Julia and I are weird, how did we get this way?
    • Cross country fish scale shoes ice
    • Why would conservatives be better at things
    • Flash intros are disrespectful
    • Anyone who sings folk songs should be able to credit their sources
    • Anthropic argument mad

    Some reasons to measure

    A question I get asked with some frequency is: why bother measuring X, why not build something instead? More bluntly, in a recent conversation with a newsletter author, his comment on some future measurement projects I wanted to do (in the same vein as ot…

    Songs about terrible relationships

    [Spoilers for several old musicals.] TV Tropes lists dozens of examples of the “I want” song (where the hero of a musical sings about their dream of escaping their small surroundings). After watching a bunch of musicals on maternity leave, I’m wondering h…
