@jaygreasley @jongold I tend to feel guilty pursuing interests outside of tech when I ‘should’ be learning CSS techniques or JS frameworks. @jaygreasley @jongold Spent the weekend pondering your response and couldn’t come up with anything to add other than, that I simply agree.

@evilgordon @cycleslikeagirl Recently saw Jon Favraeu’s Chef and thoroughly enjoyed it. You’ll also appreciate the maker/artisanal angle. @JayGreasley @jongold I’ve been pondering whether or not I’m too much of a generalist myself. Wondering why you feel that way?

Technical interviews are the cause of so much of my imposter syndrome, @DavidChouinard perfectly articulates why: https://t.co/iFJYBdGjQa @davidchouinard This resonated with me so much. Any suggestions on where to find teams looking for product engineers?

@jongold You’re interested in how to teach computers to be creative and I’m really interested in how computers can create love. @jongold And that paper really reminds me of this one (https://t.co/Qfawf7ZHng), which I came across via this (https://t.co/zSDXVxuwKx). @jongold There’s a great bit about how Bach used to encode his name in his music so as to fill it with himself. @jongold On a related theme, you might find Gödel, Escher, Bach (https://t.co/I38iEqrLhO) interesting. @moreofmorris Hey James! Wondering if I could pick your brain about your design work at Buffer—any chance I could buy you a coffee? :)

@dotmariusz Quite happy with @number26 too. Wish all my accounts had push notifications for account activity. @imcatnoone Not sure, but perhaps you might want to give Solarized a try: https://t.co/st9mvL0KGX

@Hello_Im_Peter YES!!! LONG TIME!!!SXF ✈ LGW Much excited about my return to Brighton for @dconstruct tomorrow. Who’s going to be there? @benschwarz And where are you staying/based? @benschwarz Awesome, let’s catch up on Monday! @benschwarz Yeah, that would be great! How long are you in town for? @benschwarz Wait, what!? I’m headed to Brighton for dConstruct, but if you need a desk to work from, let me know. @benschwarz Are you back in Berlin anytime soon? @benschwarz We’re still looking for a space. Lots around, but we’re taking a little longer to find a something that checks all the boxes. 😉 @fidothe @aroncarroll Spent the evening freaking out because I couldn’t find my EasyJet booking. Turns out I’m flying Norwegian. 😎

@usherette Great! In the meantime if you might need any assistance getting setup in Berlin, do let me know. @usherette, also noticed you’re part of @heydocclub—I organise a similar thing here in Berlin: http://t.co/uNBzTLis3jHey @usherette, look forward to meeting you! /cc @gazaston, @mrchrisadams, @Odaeus

@chdorner Think of the speaking engagements Christof, the speaking engagements! @chdorner Purchase the Founder’s Edition for €99 and get a handful of crappy Skype conversations I recorded with other serial entrepreneurs. @chdorner Investor Driven Design: Exposing the secrets of serial entrepreneurs for building great products and delighting your investors.Forget Agile or BDD, it’s all about IDD—Investor Driven Design—whereby you ignore customer needs and build products investors love.

@hyper_linda Oh nice! Let me know if you need a desk to get stuff done, we might have some space. @hyper_linda Ah awesome, let’s grab a coffee or something when you’re in town. Holiday or will there be some work related stuffs? @hyper_linda When will you be here? @zachinglis Thanks for the share buddy, much appreciated. @dotmariusz @zachinglis @imcatnoone Thanks! @fox Hopefully you’ll time your visit in September to coincide with a @filmsandconv screening (hint: last Thursday of the month).So, I’m teaming up with @paulozoom and @joaoLago to create a cool little working space in Berlin. Join us. Please. https://t.co/oLECOyyx7wCan’t wait to see Objectified again, it’s long been a favourite documentary of mine. https://t.co/XmXqG7HsQH

@fox Also check out Steel Vintage (http://t.co/aFLtPnQW4w) for really nice vintage stuff. @fox @paulozoom For beautiful vintage restorations, I bought my last bike from Christian at Velobros (http://t.co/nAOjseTGhk). @fox @paulozoom Standert has nice new builds. @fox And by ‘custom’ I mean that you get to pick out the components rather than having a bespoke frame made to order. @fox @paulozoom 350–500€ is a decent price. You could probably do a good custom single speed in your 1.200€ price range. @fox Wow, you could get quite a nice single speed for that. Are you looking for new or vintage? @paulozoom @fox Do you have a budget?

A customer walks into a bar. He asks for a beer made out of wine. The project manager agrees. Both question the bartender's competence.
