Grace Hopper - nanoseconds #video (2012) - Grace Hopper talking about communication latency. Life goals to have such nice presentation skills.

Seven surprising bash variables (2019) - what the title says. So much cruft in Bash though.

Friday deploy freezes are exactly like murdering puppies (2019) - well, not exactly, but still it shows that release processes in your company are too risky. You should be able to launch whenever without risk.

Hull - an alternative to shell that I’ll never have time to implement (2019) - I really dig this latest fashion of airing languages you’d like to exist (but not actually implementing it). This time, a bizzaro shell which stores execution state on disk.

On the nature of programming languages (2019) - musings on why people design programming languages. Just before the Hull post.
