I have always worked on legacy codebases in the two places I've worked. Been out of a job, I've had the luxury of working with new tech stacks.

InertiaJs stack of Laravel and VueJS has brought back the joy of coding. The simplicity and yet the power it gives is amazing....

Kids and Adults

I've seen kids who act like adults, and I've seen adults who act like kids. I try to know what distinguishes? What traits do we observe is present or lacking? What really separate men from the boys?

1) Patience
Teenagers and impatience are like five and six. Nothing botches a great plan...

Only Intrinsic Motivation Lasts

Daniel Vassallo left his $500k Amazon job to work for himself, then he wrote the article "Only Intrinsic Motivation Lasts".

That article is one of my favourite on the internet.

Online Recommendations

If we achieve full online privacy, won't online recommendations suffer? That is, we may not get accurate recommendations of things to buy or friends to connect with.

Then, GabrielGreco belled the cat.

The following are questions that have popped in...

The Greatest Privilege Of Them All, Or Something Like That

I've always known if a guy and a lady are on the road hoping for a ride, there's a high chance the lady would get a ride first. I had no data for this, but I've seen it happen randomly. When we're doing our first-year first-semester university registrations, the ladies...

I've heard folks say Highschool days were the most fun. Yeah, I say the same too. Secondary school had stupid and really crazy activities, it was all fun those days. Everything was either a joke or banter. Our reunion WhatsApp group proves this.

But most of my meaningful friends were forged...

In a world where you can be anything, be kind

Re: Corruption

keni wrote about corruption. I cleared off what I'd typed three times when I was trying to comment on the post. There was just too much to write.

Corruption is complex. It's way more complex in developing nations. In such a society, corruption is...
