    @clarkgoble Now that would be cool. I think we need to figure out a way to help you get rich, for that alone.

      @cgiffard That makes more sense than it being generational, though I don't recall ever being "passionate" about anything on a resume. Maybe I'm just dour. ;-) // @feorlen @jws

        @feorlen @jws Maybe it's a generational thing. I feel like we're not pushing a "you must be insanely devoted to your technology of choice" vibe, but I could be just not seeing it. Most of our team are really well-rounded, and we value that.

          If I see another resume intro that starts with, "I'm passionate about...," I may claw my eyes out with my toenails. It's OK to just enjoy working with React, folks.

            @clarkgoble I have long wondered where they came from. Once at Coit Tower I saw a good two dozen of them hanging out looking for scraps. It's the craziest thing seeing wild parrots in a city like SF.

              @jws Now you're just talkin' crazy.
              erikschmidt
                @jws That's sort of funny. Compared to mainstream press, the story written by the lone blogger winds up with a headline that more accurately reflects the content of the story (even if said contents are crazy).

                  @feorlen Ugh. I wonder if we'll see every single culture war battle replayed over and over again for the next four years. What's next? Rap music lyrics?

                    If ever there was a "Don't look at the real issues, look at this thing here!" faux issue, it's flag burning.

                      @duerig I was wondering who was going to come up with that reply. :P
                      erikschmidt
                        @jws I suppose that depends on where the headlines are coming from, but it seems that much of the time the headline and the article are only distantly related to each other.

                          @clarkgoble I think we all have. I certainly have, and twitter sort of begs for it. All of our social media technology has been built with "engagement" as the prime directive, in keeping with the underlying business models. Engage now, read later (or not).

                            @clarkgoble I'm not surprised. A couple of my sites were mentioned in Slashdot back in the day. I determined that about 15-20% of people who _wrote comments about my sites_ had actually followed the links and seen the sites.

                              Inc.com article on how to get rid of Apple iCal spam forces me to wait through two massive takeover ads. Derp.

                                Four days away from the grind make me feel rested and ready to embrace the new week with enthusiasm. I'm not feelin' it yet.

                                  That moment when your link checker tells you you're going to have to do more cleanup than you thought.

                                    @clarkgoble Exactly! It's almost as if the emperor has no clothes (with a small number of exceptions).

                                      @clarkgoble Indeed. It's pretty staggering that in 2016 they still don't handle duplicate removal in a painless fashion. Software feature prioritization has been a real issue for them in the past few years.

                                        @clarkgoble Good point. Media coverage is oxygen for those folks, just as it is for terrorists.
