After suffering career burnout for the past 4-5 years, here's how I've come to understand its cause:

Burnout is a response to repeated attempts to make meaningful change while lacking the agency to do so. See problems > try to fix them > get shot down or ignored.

What do you expect to see on an Introductory Node.js course?

Pension planning sounds like a snore of a podcast topic, right? But when you mix in technology and some compassion, it gets much more interesting!

Great conversation with @crc about @w3c, web standards, and two tools I built a while back to help with editing specs: Specref and PR Preview.

Super interesting to read about the methodical process @schneems went through to determine the best rate throttling strategy. Great merging of theory and reality.

The approach he took can be generalized to any algorithm development.
