    • Avoiding the GIGO trap July 19, 2018
      “Garbage in, garbage out.” It has a nice ring to it. And engineers have long embraced it as a mantra. If you don’t put the right stuff in, don’t expect to get good results. And so, when we banned leaded gasoline, the car industry complained that they’d never be able to make cars run well […]       
    • Batting average is a trap July 18, 2018
      Baseball is not an accurate representation of life. In baseball, batting average matters because the outcome of the game is directly related to the percentage of times each batter gets on base. But in life, we’re not keeping track of how many times you get up to bat, or how many times you strike out. […]       
    • Five ways to make your presentation better July 17, 2018
      Make it shorter. No extra points for filling your time. Be really clear about what it’s for. If the presentation works, what will change? Who will be changed? Will people take a different course of action because of your work? If not, then why do you do a presentation? Don’t use slides as a teleprompter. […]       
    • We’re still clueless about lifetime value July 16, 2018
      If an Apple upgrade breaks your phone and you switch to Android, it costs Apple more than $10,000. If you switch supermarkets because a clerk was snide with you, it removes $50,000 from the store’s ongoing revenue. If a kid has a lousy first grade teacher or is bullied throughout middle school, it might decrease […]       
    • First annual condiment showcase July 15, 2018
      Totally off topic, a few condiments most people don’t know about that I’m happy to bring to your attention. $5 each will buy you a month’s worth of delight. It’s hard to beat. Here they are with links, but you can find them locally, I hope. Lao Gan Ma Chili Crisps are numbing and spicy […]

    • Menace October 2, 2013
      Power is intoxicating. Everyone loves having the ability to make their decisions into reality — to think "this should be something that happens," and then actually be able to make that thing happen. It is also dangerous. And it is especially dangerous when applied to four-year-olds. Four-year-olds lack the experience to wield power responsibly. The […]
    • Depression Part Two May 9, 2013
      I remember being endlessly entertained by the adventures of my toys. Some days they died repeated, violent deaths, other days they traveled to space or discussed my swim lessons and how I absolutely should be allowed in the deep end of the pool, especially since I was such a talented doggy-paddler. I didn't understand why it was fun for me, it just was. […]
    • Pre-Post Transition Post May 9, 2013
      This isn't a real post. I'm going to post the real post tomorrow. But it feels like there should be some sort of intermediate thing to prepare everyone for the abrupt change of speed ahead. Here's a picture of an airplane. I realize that airplanes don't look like that, but this has been a hard year for me and learning how to draw planes a […]
