    1. Dictators and tyrants routinely begin their reigns and sustain their power with the deliberate and calculated destruction of art

      Art terrifies tyrants! Here's one tiny small example, but there are unfortunately hundreds of thousands examples of this.

    1. Because humans hate being bored or confused and there are countless ways to make decisions look off-puttingly boring or complex — be it presenting reams of impenetrable legalese in tiny greyscale lettering so no-one will bother reading
    1. While these roles are very important, the ability to innovate from an “outside-in” standpoint may be even more valuable. How do we get people who  experience ‘customer reaction” or people who work in factories to surface and take action on the things that they observe? If you don’t provide the tools for that and enable that, then you have the danger of 1) the signal for innovation not reaching the source 2) the signal being transformed on the way to the source. A signal loss can change the idea entirely and alter the impact of the innovation.
    2. fixing the source of employee disengagement by helping them with tools that optimize their workflows ultimately led to employee empowerment.
    1. "I have read and agree to the terms and conditions” may well be the most common lie in the history of civilization. How many times do you scroll and click accept without a second thought? You’re not alone. Not only they go unread, but they also include a self-updating clause requiring you to go back and review those documents for changes. You’re agreeing to any changes, and their consequences, indefinitely. 
    1. And, frankly, we’re abetting this behavior. Most users just click or tap “okay” to clear the pop-up and get where they’re going. They rarely opt to learn more about what they’re agreeing to. Research shows that the vast majority of internet users don’t read terms of service or privacy policies — so they’re probably not reading cookie policies, either. They’re many pages long, and they’re not written in language that’s simple enough for the average person to understand.
    2. But in the end, they’re not doing much: Most of us just tediously click “yes” and move on.
    3. The site invites you to read its “cookie policy,” (which, let’s be honest, you’re not going to do), and it may tell you the tracking is to “enhance” your experience — even though it feels like it’s doing the opposite.
    1. Un aneddoto della vita di Jules Verne narra che lui, da ragazzino, si volesse imbarcare come mozzo su una nave diretta nelle Indie. Bloccato dal padre pronunciò le fatidiche parole “D’ora in poi viaggerò solo con la fantasia!” E così fece.

    1. To Put Yourself Out There and Make Connections

      Openness in connecting to people.

    2. To Collaborate With My Peers

      This is a very rich section: openness in developing skills, connecting materials, skills, roles, feedback and evaluation to other learners, and including other learners in the experience.

    1. there’s a strong overlap between the representation of queer, or otherwise marginalized authors, and this very welcoming, open format

      Openness on including people.

    1. TC39 urges caution when using Stage 2-or below proposals, as it might result in inadvertent pressure from the community to keep the implementation as-is instead of improving it for fear of breaking existing code or ecosystem fragmentation (e.g. using a different symbol like # instead of @ for decorators).
    2. It's completely understandable that this happens without realizing it, but continuing to do so sets different expectations for how the language progresses. It's nothing to feel guilty about — we learn as a community and remind one another of how JavaScript works.
    3. Therefore, it's easy to search around for tweets/blog posts/talks that say "ES7 Decorators" and find that it's become the accustomed name for it.

    1. I'm considering this, although I'm still leaning towards not including it and I'd love to just get rid of first if it wouldn't break so many peoples tests. Newcomers to Capybara don't understand (or aren't willing to learn) the issues that all/first (and last if added) have and massively overuse them. Yes the fact that all and first now wait by default will prevent some of the new user issues/confusion, but it won't fix the non-reloadability issue.

    1. I am confused by the fact that people do not seem to be discussing which one to use according to these criteria. Most article I find are talking about arguments like speed or compatibility. But is this not the most relevant point?

    1. “Why are some people more able to manage complexity?”

      Agreed. This is a much better question to ask, as it is an open-ended and discussion enabling question..

    1. A school friend might call him between 2 and 4 in the afternoon causing “an alarm signal

      When the author described his families newly installed phone in the 1900s, it brought up very similar feelings that i could relate to even as child of the 1990s. Phones had been around for some time but I clearly remember my first few experiences been terrifyingly exciting. I would swap phone numbers and set up calls for after school with my friends, and unknown to my parents, I would wait for the 'alarm signal to go off'. To their surprise the the call was for me. I would sheepishly take the call with, heart thumping to find out who the voice on the other end was and if it was a boy that was calling I was terrified to say anything at all due to lake of privacy so those calls would never last long! Its interesting to see how quickly changes in communication have happened so rapidly in the past 30 years compared to the previous 100 years. It makes me think about how the ease of access to mobile phones is changing communication in the world, particularly among younger generations that see mobile phones as the norm and will never experience the good old fashioned house phone

    1. those poor slaves, Who, whilom, under native, gracious chiefs, Incas and emperors, long time enjoy’d [185] Mild government, with every sweet of life, In blissful climates? See them dragg’d in chains, By proud insulting tyrants, to the mines Which once they call’d their own, and then despised!
    2. With what intense severity of pain Hath the afflicted muse, in Scotia, seen THe miners rack’d, who toil for fatal lead? What cramps, what palsies shake their feeble limbs, [180] Who, on the margin of the rocky Drave, Trace silver’s fluent ore? Yet white men these!
