Five for Friday – June 26, 2020

I like to think that this FfF series (which has lasted a long time now), is an eclectic slice of the internet – but it was cool last week when one of my links was posted by someone who actually reads this thing.

Pretty cool – let’s see if I can do it again.

  • I finally read the latest Patrick Lencioni book, Motive – which sums up a lot of the ideas in some of his previous books. It’s on the short side, but worth the effort, as the points it makes are relevant and fantastic.
  • In Corona news, looks like the results of stupidity in my home country are coming to fruition – The U.S. Has Officially Unflattened the Curve With Its Worst Day of the Coronavirus Pandemic Yet
  • I have a software patent or two. I don’t remember exactly what they’re for, but I’m pretty sure it’s not that unique of an idea. My experience with the patent process was that they don’t look really hard, and although I’m pretty much positive my patent has been “infringed” – I don’t care. Here’s another take – Software patents are another kind of disease
  • I’m not sure how to pull this off myself, but this article on Implementing a No Meeting Day really gave me a lot to think about.
  • For no reason in particular, I began learning Rust last weekend. I’ve kept at it for 30-40 minutes a day, and I’m becoming a bit of a fan.
