Job opportunities for people with CouchDB skills

Time to relax!

  • “As people whose job it is to literally change reality by building systems that are made of language, programmers know that language shapes reality, even as they dismiss criticism of their language as triviality or as “political correctness..” – Gendered Language: Feature or Bug in Software Documentation?
  • “When everyone is optimizing for money, the effects on society are horrific. It produces graphs that are up and to the right for all the wrong reasons.…Don’t sink into the morass of “industry standards.” Don’t succumb to the inertia of the status quo. Don’t stop exploring new ideas. A small number of people can change how society works. It’s happened before and it will happen again.” – Resist and Thrive
  • “’You don’t pay attention because you should, you pay attention because you can’t help it.’” – What making music does to your brain
  • “Shielding kids from the Internet may work for a time, but once they do get online, limiters’ kids often lack the skills and habits that make for consistent, safe, and successful online interactions.” – Parents: Reject Technology Shame
  • “Because if both the protesters and the Person of Stature are seen as having free speech, then this becomes a “marketplace of ideas” issue, and your readers will then feel entitled to make up their own minds as to who is in the right and who is in the wrong. And you can’t let this happen, because you have already decided this for them!” – How to Write a “Political Correctness Run Amok” Article
