    1. How to Avoid the Cobra Effect Anticipating and avoiding perverse outcomes and unintended consequences requires the ability to apply second-order thinking skills to planning and problem-solving. First-order thinking is linear and simplistic: How do we get rid of the cobras? Let’s offer a bounty to people for killing them. Second-order thinking is: Analytical. The who, what, when, where, why, and how of the project, its planning, and its execution. Critical. What are our assumptions, what could go wrong, how could external influences affect our plans and the outcome, and on what evidence are we confident in our plans and assumptions? Skeptical. What can go wrong and how, what is the probability of that happening, and what unintended consequences or perverse outcomes might ensue?


    2. “The first two people in line at one of the three buyback locations were gun dealers with 60 firearms packed in the trunk of their cars.” They “bought a dozen guns from seniors living in an assisted-living facility.” Rather than getting guns off the streets, some less-than-trustworthy individuals were turning in their cheap weapons and using the $250 bounty to buy a better gun. So many people rushed to turn in guns that the police department ran out of money and had to give IOUs, leaving the department with a $170,000 debt.

      Gun buy back program gone wrong.

    3. Economist Horst Siebert coined the term “cobra effect” based on the following: When the British ruled India, the city of Delhi was infested with cobras. To enlist the public’s help in eradicating the snakes, officials offered a bounty on cobra skins. Soon, however, a cottage industry of cobra farming sprang up. People were breeding them for their skins. The British paid out more and more money, but the cobra infestation did not abate. And cobra farming only added to the problem. When authorities finally got wise to the scam and withdrew the bounty, the farmers set their now-worthless cobras free. In this case, truly the road to hell was paved with good intentions – and cobra skins.

      How to use the date NLP tool with Roam42.

    1. Search for messages older or newer than a time period using d (day), m (month), and y (year) older_than: newer_than: Example: newer_than:2d

      Probably a quicker usage vs dates.

    2. Search for messages sent during a certain time period after: before: older: newer: Example: after:2004/04/16 Example: after:04/16/2004 Example: before:2004/04/18 Example: before:04/18/2004

      Very useful combination.

    3. Starred, snoozed, unread, or read messages is:starred is:snoozed is:unread is:read Example: is:read is:starred

      How to look for starred messages that might be old and then aren't in OmniFocus, etc.

    4. Messages that have a Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, or Slides attachment or link has:drive has:document has:spreadsheet has:presentation Example: has:drive

      Easier way to find spreadsheets or docs, etc.

    5. Messages that have a certain label label: Example: label:friends

      Would only really be useful for "receipts" but I should probably create more labels.

    6. Remove messages from your results - Example: dinner -movie

      Just like with SERP operators

    7. Messages that match multiple terms OR or { } Example: from:amy OR from:david Example: {from:amy from:david}

      I think this would also work: from: (amy OR david)

    1. If you create redirect tests to experiment with multiple versions of a given page, we recommend that you define a canonical URL for your variants. This ensures that your redirect page variants won’t have an impact on your original page’s SEO rankings.

      I would vote for a noindex, which is a directive. Canonicals aren't and Googlebot technically doesn't have to obey them.

      Don't play with fire, use a noindex.

    2. Cloaking is the practice of presenting a version of a web page to search engines that is different from the version presented to users, with the intention of deceiving the search engines and affecting the page's ranking in the search index.

      Great background on cloaking to start out.

    1. 7. Twitterrific Twitterrific offers a clean and uncluttered way to browse your Twitter timeline on Mac. It lets you view the timeline in chronological order without any of those pesky-liked tweets that make their way on the list. You can put up multiple timelines from one or more accounts, navigate the app with VoiceOver, sync using iCloud, mute and muffle keywords and users, etc. Things that Twitterrific does better than other apps on the list are the ability to natively translate a tweet, color coding tweets, PIP mode for videos, and intuitive keyboard shortcuts. Twitterrific is available on the Mac App Store for $7.99.

      This is much better reviewed on iOS than TweetBot

    2. 6. Tweetbot 3 Tweetbot 3 is a beautifully designed Twitter client for Macs that prioritizes usability and aesthetics. The app has a dark mode that blends well with macOS design, videos and GIFs that play automatically on hovering, custom timelines, and advanced filters. Tweetbot also saves all the drafts in one place which gives you instant access later. One of the best features of this app is the iCloud sync that lets you sync between iPhone and Mac. It means you can pick up from wherever you left on any device. Tweetbot3 is available on the Mac App Store for $9.99 but there is a 14-day free trial.

      Helpful that this syncs w/ iCloud and there is "TweetBot 6" for the phone.

The interface is condensed into four vertical columns that give you a list of your feed, notifications, messages, and worldwide trends. You can add new columns easily.

    1. Using Boolean Search on LinkedInLast updated: July 6, 2018You can run a Boolean search on LinkedIn by combining keywords with operators like AND, NOT, and OR during your search.Here are some ways to use Boolean logic and construct your searches: Quoted searches: For an exact phrase, enclose the phrase in quotation marks. For example, type "product manager". You can also use quotation marks if you want to find someone with a multi-word title. LinkedIn search only supports standard, straight quotation marks ("). Other software or websites may use special symbols that our system does not recognize. Curly quotation marks (“), also known as smart quotes or typographer's quotes, aren't supported. In order to optimize overall site performance, stop words such as "by", "in", "with", etc. aren't used. NOT searches: Type the word NOT (capital letters) immediately before a search term to exclude it from your search results. This typically limits your search results. For example, "programmer NOT manager". OR searches: Type the word OR (capital letters) to see results that include one or more items in a list. This typically broadens your search results. For example, "sales OR marketing OR advertising”. AND searches: AND searches: Type the word AND (capital letters) to see results that include all items in a list. This typically limits your search results. For example, "accountant AND finance AND CPA".. Note: You don't need to use AND. If your search has two or more terms, you'll automatically see results that include all of them. Parenthetical searches - To do a complex search, you can combine terms using parentheses. For example, to find people who have "VP" in their profiles, but exclude "assistant to VP" or SVPs, type VP NOT (assistant OR SVP). When handling searches, the overall order to precedence is: Quotes [""] Parentheses [()] NOT AND OR Important: The + and - operators are not officially supported by LinkedIn. Using AND in place of + and NOT in place of - makes a query much easier to read and guarantees that we'll handle the search correctly. When using NOT, AND, or OR operators, you must type them in uppercase letters. We don't support wildcard "*" searches. Boolean search will work in the keyword field in Recruiter and Linkedin.com, and will work in the Company, title, and keyword field in Sales Navigator.
