Comment on Maybe I’m a … by Lu Zhang http://commadot.com/maybe-im-a/#comment-15638 Thu, 17 Oct 2019 03:11:31 +0000 http://commadot.com/?p=7782#comment-15638 I like “Maybe”, it gives me some hypothesis to test out, and I like experimenting. I talked with my mom the other day about how she tested out the “maybe” versions of my future. When I was in elementary school, I took so many classes outside school – accordion, drawing (many kinds), go, swimming, dancing, math etc. I enjoyed the diversity, and my mom enjoyed exploring where my talents were. Some didn’t work long (et. I was not a great go player, I was not bad at math but I didn’t enjoy it), some have a life influence to me – drawings. The beauty is these “maybes” motivated me at that age to learn /challenge myself, to question, and to accept the imperfection. Now, I still have “maybe” assumption, and I’m still trying to figure out where might my future goes.

Comment on Project Roles and Responsibilities by Lu Zhang http://commadot.com/project-roles-and-responsibilities/#comment-15636 Sun, 13 Oct 2019 18:36:42 +0000 http://commadot.com/?p=8524#comment-15636 This is a very good reading to me, I love the metaphor of driving a car. The DACI map helps me clarify many thoughts I have recently regarding to effectively contribute and take initiatives within a product team. To understand the role I’m in and take the appropriate actions based on product development life cycle is the golden key to a higher maturity team. Thank you for the share!

Comment on Uppercase Lowercase by Daniel Lipka http://commadot.com/uppercase-lowercase/#comment-15634 Thu, 03 Oct 2019 18:57:36 +0000 http://commadot.com/?p=8516#comment-15634 but why are we still using upper case letters at all? they serve no purpose. i can figure out that a word is the first in a sentence by the fact that it comes at the beginning of a paragraph or after certain punctuation. why make children spent twice as much time in school learning these extra letters. interestingly, changing to all lower case would be pretty easy for society. although if we are doing this, we should really just switch to phonetic lettering which would end illiteracy (for anyone with a 2nd grade education) and help all children (and adults) who struggle with reading and spelling.

I think any normal person would say that the correct rotation is clockwise. We have precedent of clocks after all. This is how sundials work.”

No. Sundials does not primarily correlate with the earth’s rotation around the sun (the seasons), but with earths rotation around its own axis (night/daytime).

This is exactly what I have been pushing for at work. I want people to feel more empowered to act if the action is with good intent.
