Прохладная былина

С момента выхода предыдущей версии продукта объем репозитория вырос с 32 до 34 миллионов строк кода! Мы починили — вы починили — двадцать тысяч багов!
...

Если верить публичным источникам, это приблизительно 2 года работы над linux, размер совпадает со всей Windows 2000, а по времени оценивается где-то в 6-7 тысяч человеко-лет.
Ну вот как-то очень дофига и сомнительно.

Нашел время и силы посмотреть всю запись с недавнего митапа по ФП.
В общем - молодцы, хотя я уже не попадаю в целевую аудиторию докладчиков - ничего нового, при всей скромности моих познаний, мне не довелось услышать.
В частностях, безусловна видна разница между Лапшиным и остальными докладчиками, где фулл-стэк знания, опыт, всё такое (нового тоже ничего не слышал, потому как читаю его жж) и где полуподпольные приложения знаний.
Больше всего потошнило от рассказа Александра Алексеева. Не знаю какой он программист, а докладчик - ну отстойный. Кривая речь сама по себе, неприятные и порой даже неграмотные обороты, безыдейный сам по себе доклад даже просто для обзора что такое Haskell.

From What items for under 10 usd would amaze people from 100 years ago:

I would say a pregnancy test. The ability to pee on a stick and divine the future might impress someone.



It impressed me when I was able to get a handful of them at the dollar store last week!
My grandfather ran a blood lab in the 1920s where they did pregnancy testing. For every test they had to kill a rabbit for the antibodies in its blood. He would be amazed if he were around.



That's where you get that old expression "the rabbit died"
If a man said "the rabbit died" that meant his wife was pregnant.
Funny story. A friend of mine met up with my family and his girlfriend's pet rabbit had really died that week and he told us so.
My dad thought he was using the old expression and said "Congratulations!!"
And the friend said, "for what? ".
"Your girlfriend is pregnant!" My dad says.
Friend says, "how did you know?!?"
They hadn't told anyone yet.


Nice urban legend :)

Quotes from study "Set up to fail: How bosses create their own poor performers" by Jean-Francois Manzoni and Jean-Louis Barsoux, 1998


The right stuff
Numerous studies have shown that most managers (some studies claim
up to 90 per cent) treat some subordinates as members of an "in-group"
and consign others to an "out-group".
Members of the "in-group" are the trusted collaborators and receive more autonomy, more feedback, more expressions of confidence and more considerate behavior on the part of the boss. The boss-subordinate relationship is one of mutual trust and reciprocal influence.
Members of the "out-group", on the other hand, are regarded more as "hired hands" and are managed in a more formal (less personal) way, with more emphasis on rules, policies and formal authority.

And this tends to practical usage:

Theere is evidence that managers tend to form these opinion very early in the relationship.
Note: In the first major study in this field, Dansereau, Graen and Haga (1975) detected differences between the in-group and the out-group as early as one month into the superior-subordinate relationship. Liden and Graen (1980) and Bass & Stogdill (1990) review several studies with similar results.


Freedom of action
In relative terms, the "lower performer" is set up for repeated failure, as acknowledged by one boss: "A higher and a lower performer may have failed by the same amount but because you monitor one every day, the lower performer receives 20 failed grades in a month, and the higher performer only one!"



Giving feedback
With respect to deviations from plan, be it budget or a deadline, bosses show greater readiness with "weaker performers" to focus on the negative rather than the positive. They also seem less open to circumstantial explanations for unfavorable results.
Bosses also tend to show more leniency toward "better performers" when handing out credit for success and blame for failure. The successes of members of the "in-group" are more likely to be attributed to the individual, and their failures to external factors such as unfavorable circumstances. In contrast, the successes of perceived weaker performers tend to be attributed to luck or favorable situational factors, while failures stem from the subordinates' lack of ability or effort.
In general, problems reported by "better performers" tend to set off fewer alarm bells. The thoughts triggered in the boss's mind are: "it's not her/his fault and s/he can handle the problem." For the perceived weaker performers, the immediate reaction is often more along the lines of, "s/he fouled up again, I'd better get involved."


Initiating contact
With "higher performers" the contact can be initiated indifferently by both parties. Perceived better performers show little reluctance to approach their boss because they are confident that announcing a problem will not reflect on them personally. As a result bosses can give them more space and do not feel compelled to check up on them all the time.

Zinn: Well, you know, it would be manifestly difficult to believe in magic rings unless everyone was high on pipe-weed. So it is in Gandalf’s interest to keep Middle Earth hooked.

Chomsky: How do you think these wizards build gigantic towers and mighty fortresses? Where do they get the money? Keep in mind that I do not especially regard anyone, Saruman included, as an agent for progressivism. But obviously the pipe-weed operation that exists is the dominant influence in Middle Earth. It’s not some ludicrous magical ring.


And there is more of that jazz :)

Pediatric urologists are the weirdest fuckers on the planet. They all made the conscious decision to dedicate their lives to kid dicks.

Dramatic reenactment:

"Well John, it's time to declare your major. What are you passionate about? What moves you?

John: "Kid dicks."
----
"Excuse me?"

"Yes, kid dicks."

"I was afraid that's what you said, John. But why? It's career suicide! Everyone knows the real money is in old man boners."

"Well, kid dicks are near and dear to my heart. They're my passion. You see, I had a kid dick..."

"Yes? Go on."

"In fact, I still have a kid dick."

"What do you mean 'still' have one?"

"It...it just never grew. I used to pull and stretch it but it remained at a second grade level and now it looks like a grape that's starting to rot."

"Jesus..."

"I can't sit idly by knowing that others suffer in silence with kid dick, too. I have to help them. I have to help them all."

"I'm so proud of you, John. You're a brave man. You may have a kid's dick, but you've got a man's heart."

"And a man's balls, too."

"...a man's what?"

"Balls, sir. I've got a massive set of the things. They're really quite grand. The way my kid dick rests on them is reminiscent of a kitten sinking into the top of a bean bag chair."

"Extraordinary. It seems God is not without a sense of humor."

"Without question, but just wait until you hear what my colon can do. Let's just say that when I go snorkeling, I have more options than most..."

Читая пост про то как быть хардкорным удалёнщиком, я вдруг осознал, что именно этим советам (с поправкой на специфику) следовал, будучи членом "пати" в одной небезызвестной MMORPG.
У нас был режим партийной игры, расписание внутреннее и внешнее (клановое), цели, средства и тьма общения.
Вероятно, такая аналогия может дойти даже быстрее озвученной в посте.
