    1. The most common impression is that a developer is someone who is a genius and is able to process massive algorithms in their head in a computer-like way to produce code. This is a misguided idea. Developers are just regular people who have invested their time to learn a programming language and to understand the tools, techniques, nuances, and quirks of the technology they are using to produce results. Any professional job, be it a bricklayer, plumber, or indeed a developer, requires you to learn the tools of the trade to build what people need. A developer, by my definition, is simply someone who creates something out of nothing. A property developer takes a piece of land and produces homes for people to live in. A web developer produces apps or websites from nothing.

    1. The music we listen to highly impacts our decision making, especially as adolescents. Adolescents are extremely impressionable, and the music they listen to has a great impact on how they decide to live their day to day lives. Popular musicians are seen as role models by the people who idolize them, and adolescents may try to represents the songs in which they favor through their actions every day.

      Recent studies have found that adolescents who listen to music that supports substance abuse and violence have a greater chance to act upon what they listen to. What young adults and teenagers listen to through music and popular media will affect their decision making process. Specifically with substance abuse, and there is a direct uptake in use of illegal substances by adolescents who listen to music that promotes such activities. This can cause a whole societal problem considering most of todays popular music among adolescents touches upon substance abuse and violence. Adolescents are extremely impressionable and the music they listen can shape how a person tries to act, or represent themselves.

    1. We refer to a way of life

      I view that through the lens of mindsets; I get there by learning that, when confronted with a life-threatening diagnosis, taking full ownership of the dx can save lives. I map that to strategies for preventing life-threatening diagnoses (think: all the complex, urgent issues about which Douglas Engelbart spoke).

    1. It's far better, Dweck says, to encourage a growth mindset, in which children believe that brains and talent are merely a starting point, and that abilities can be developed through hard work and continued intellectual risk-taking.

    1. If we don’t force kids to come to school in order to change their ‘mindsets’, why ARE they here? 

      To develop their own "mindsets" in a nurturing environment that values their agency and supports them in seeing and realizing the possibilities in their lives? :-)

    1. The most common bit of concrete advice offered by Dweck and others enamored of the growth mindset is to praise kids for their effort (“You tried really hard”) rather than for their ability (“You’re really smart”) in order to get them to persevere. (Google the words “praise” and “effort” together: more than 70 million hits.)

      I think the author has understated how feedback works in incremental theory. Neither feedback option is better. They should be connected to the stated learning outcome. The key feature is feedback shoudl not be about the student or pleasing the teacher but about the goal.

    1. The above are the motives that make men do wrong to others; we are next to consider the states of mind in which they do it, and the persons to whom they do it.
