Job Opportunities for people with CouchDB skills

Time to relax!

  • “To avoid being stuck in a local maxima, we need to periodically look across boundaries. This means both looking below familiar abstractions, and above to see what others are building upon your work.” – Coevolution of Software
  • “How about let’s have 2015 be the year that we stop looking for ‘rockstars’ and stop tolerating ‘rockstar’ behavior like people who constantly interrupt and speak over others because their ‘rockstar’ opinion is just that … important. If we all mindfully work to interrupt this interrupt culture, all voices can be heard, and everyone wins.” – On interrupting interrupt culture
  • Philosophers and scientists have been at war for decades over the question of what makes human beings more than complex robots. – Why can’t the world’s greatest minds solve the mystery of consciousness?
  • “Fuelling the mind isn’t easy, it requires rigour and discipline. Put in that discipline, however, and the returns will be considerable. Your ideas will flow and, the more you apply yourself to priming the brain, the more you’ll see connections in the content you encounter.” – Designing a Mind
