New in #taproot: latest 3 articles and location of last checkin/location post on the homepage — hopefully some useful/interesting context.
Next: mobile-focused homepage design.
New in this version of #taproot:
The local maximum has been overcome, for now. There is still much to do.
And with that, a new release of #taproot was unleashed upon the web.
Brett Slatkin I like this tip because it creates a system which tends towards a lack of email being sent :)
When people drop into your IRC channel to ask whether it’s possible to reply to something on your mailing list, that’s probably a good sign you should ditch your mailing list and use IRC + Wiki.
Walking in the icy wind, my internal voice started dogespeaking in Picard voice, with hilarious results.
The larger the gap between one major feedback loop and the next largest of any given stage of an activity, the more assumptions must be made about that stage.
Example: planing a hurdy gurdy top to thickness.
Tasks, feedback loops in order of duration (timings are approximate from memory):
The gaps between feedback loops become larger as the durations become larger, as do the assumptions which are made about the task at each level until the next feedback loop arrives. I suspect that experience level also affects both the value gained from each feedback loop, increasing the actor’s knowledge of the system and increasing the amount of time which can safely be left (i.e. the amount of assumption which is safe) before more feedback is required.
Two observations: the existence of vastly longer feedback loops of experience accumulating which affect the shape of existing loops, and that the smallest feedback loops are broadcast by the environment (audible feedback, physical resistance) but longer ones require active participation (testing the system).
Having a go at Thai cooking tonight — making some grilled chicken with satay sauce + cucumber (new favourite flavour combination), as per this recipe.
Brian Brennan ah, okay. I was thinking of using SSE-style responses to a POST request as a way of offering real-time feedback about new content creation without having to set up redis and a websockets server.
Brian Brennan it’s not something to do with a SSE response to a POST request is it?
Achievement Unlocked: actually saw an umbrella inverted by wind. Didn’t know that happened in real life.
Are any of my USA friends #mentalist fans? I’m not going to be able to see S6E8 until tomorrow evening, wanting to figure out if I need to avoid twitter in case of spoilers until then :)
