"The panel has a larger concern with the rigor of Boeing's verification processes" is impressively diplomatic. I'd be more blunt: between this and the 737 MAX, do not trust Boeing for life-critical software.
I'm really looking forward to virtual conferences becoming a thing. Air travel is unsustainable, and a huge cost-barrier, conferences generally aren't disability friendly, and way more.
A lot more conferences are getting better at live streaming talks, getting them online quickly, or even live-captioning and -translation. But I wanna see these conferences fully online! Recreating hallway talk is gonna be a tough nut to crack though.
oh my god, apparently the license for the original implementation of JSON states

Weird Anxiety Dreams
The past few nights I've had weird anxiety dreams.
Last night, it was that my room had been filled with wasps, and I had to squish them before they could sting me.
The the night before that, I was on a bus and the driver refused to stop when I pulled the cord, and started making fun of me.
Dunno what that's all about.
Abuse, Self Reflection
I realized today that it's my history of abuse that keeps me from trusting people at their word on things like this. Past roommates or relationships, we'd work out deals like this, and I'd feel like it was going great, until it was brought up against me in some huge blowout.
And that's got me still nervous.
Even years later, I'm having to relearn how to take people at their word.
electronics, science, space, bad puns, and one day escaping to the one place that hasn't been corrupted by capitalism.
