I’m mostly also just not comfortable with being in contact with all the other staff. They’re taking precautions, yes, but in my town there were 300 new cases at a chicken factory. Not encouraging.
Not driving has been another bonus. My commute is 30 mins one way. I’ve been able to do my job completely from home unless I actually needed to put my hands on something, which is rare.

y'all going to laugh, but I really believed it. I drank the kool-aid. this was the mid-00s, a tech company with a motto "don't be evil" still felt daring rather than cringe – for an alienated techie like past me, at least; my politically aware friends tried to warn me; but I didn't realise that Google leveraged its fine-tuned advertising machinery also for recruiting, and I swallowed the whole thing.

I aced the recruiting tests. How could I not? They were traps built for minds like mine. but I didn't understand how they were designed to make me feel proud, special.

@vecna when I tried to switch from #Ruby to #Bash (or even #POSIX #shellScripting) to reduce the amount of dependencies, I noticed I focused more on creating smaller programmes that did as little as possible. Take data and output data that could then be processed by one or more other tools.
In other words, I was more creating a set of small tools that used piping to get the task done, rather than a single programme that tried to do it all.
