Pretty accurately conveys my feelings back on election day. Unfortunately we’re somewhere in between best and worst case and muddling on towards a dark tomorrow.

Comment on Tab Groups in Chrome by shalom.ormsby https://commadot.com/tab-groups-in-chrome/#comment-15764 Fri, 23 Oct 2020 02:39:55 +0000 https://commadot.com/?p=9700#comment-15764 Thanks for the heads up about this. Love this new feature! I’ve already organized my mess of tabs into neat groups, while pruning back a bunch. My gripe about the implementation is that it doesn’t handle multiple monitor setups well. Tab groups are constrained to each monitor, which hamstrings their effectiveness. They should be global across all monitors.

We do standups once a week. Any more would feel forced. We talk alot to each other during the day. However, I would say that standups don’t help much in bonding. Specifically, I’m talking about building a rapport and emotional connection with your coworkers.

Act 2 – Post High School – lived for fun. Random jobs in real estate, nanny, receptionist, auditioned to be a backup dancer for N*SYNC, worked at a restaurant…oh yeah, community college(s).

Act 3 – Focus Time: Work at GE Capital. Learn about 6 Sigma and Kaizen. Realized I wanted a Bachelors Degree. Quit work and re-focus on school full-time, extended to get MBA.

Act 4 – Real World: Introduction to tech startup, SaaS and SFDC, and MOPs. Absorbing everything. Worked at Sesame and Expedia

Act 5 – Leaving the Nest: The Grand Adventure to California. Bumpy at first, but a great period of growth. Worked at Marketo and SurveyMonkey

Act 6 – Epiphany – Realizing I am Smart, I am Valuable. I have opinions. Some people want to hear them. Life is short..make good choices.

That was fun! I enjoyed yours too.

Interesting. I definitely don’t want to live in a city, but who knows?

In metropolitans people are more aloof. And in smaller towns, there’s a much bigger social pressure to engage in small talk.
