RAMPS - A Way I Approach Motivational Puzzles | S0-E7
"So, too, in this perhaps overblown metaphor, I'm taking what we call "motivation", and treating it like light, breaking it into component bands, and thinking about the various motivational puzzles one encounters in dealing with oneself and with others. There are two key aspects to this metaphor. 1) Every person's bar-chart, spectrum, motivational signature is different. 2) The closer the setting is to a person's motivational signature, the more motivated they are, and the further, the less so."

Stories about Stories | S0-E6

How Stories Change Things | S0-E5
"When I say tell and re-tell the story of us until it becomes the story we want, bringing us together in a culture of kind and creative community, I am not being mystical, airy, saintly, hippie-esque, poetic, or intellectual. I am talking about straight-up hardcore pragmatism." Episode 5 is now live.

What I'm Up To | S0-E4
"I don't know what will thicken the software making trade's culture. But I know (part of) what I'm trying to do: tell the story of us, re-tell it, and re-tell it again, as many times as it takes, until that story is the story of a community of kindness and creativity."

Easiest Nearest Owwie First (ENOF) | S0-E2
When facing especially weak code, it’s easy to feel daunted; there just seems so much wrong with it. To get my mojo on, I find the simplest infelicity to fix, I fix it. Then I do it again. Everyone encounters code from time to time that she does not understand. This is true for the noob and equally so for the olb. It is a fact of being a geek. Early in one’s refactoring career, one tends to blame oneself. While it must be said that you have a certain peculiar charm, you feel basically stupid, and that you are at fault and not the code. Slowly, over time, you will begin to suspect otherwise, and you’ll start to realize the code works for you, you don’t work for the code. Congratulations! That is the correct attitude.
