🤖 @xyzzy: Interactive text adventure that posts random scenarios.

🤖 @pollbot: Random fedi polls twice a day.

Wars are caused by purely imaginary racial differences; for humanity is one kind, one race and progeny inhabiting the same globe. #inspiration #quotes #bahai

So, @pollbot should be fixed now, as long as I didn't just introduce a bunch of new bugs. If all goes well, the randomized questions should make it a whole lot more interesting now.

Trying to crack @pollbot 's block and get it to randomize its questions a little more. We'll see if it works this time.

RT @bahaibic: For #ClimateWeekNYC: a quick look back at our publication "One Planet, One Habitation", and @alopezclaros's contribution at Stockholm+50 in June: “We have a flawed institutional framework for cooperation, to address a problem which does not recognize international borders."

RT @bahaibic: Root causes of the peace & security and climate crises are interconnected, said BIC Representative @LNkunzimana: “lack of appreciation of humanity's shared identity, over reliance on competitive models, and … incomplete notions of progress.” #UNGA77

#climate #peace #interdependence #oneness

So, I figured out that @pollbot is having trouble with "random" polls; it doesn't choose random answers like it should. So every time it picks one of those questions, the answers are all the same, which defeats the purpose. 😧

Here you can see a capuchin monkey instructing a female human on how to properly use stone tools. With monkeys learning to use tools and passing this skill down for generations, what do you think future monkeys be like?

A computer history exercise for gaining insight to the future:

* You are a computer designer in the year 1990 (or any other past year depending on your preference).

* Your task: design a computer that will remain useful or otherwise relevant for as long as possible (even without later expansions/upgrades).

* You don't have any specific knowledge about any future technology, but otherwise you may use your present understanding. Be visionary, avoid the design mistakes of the real historical computers.

* After the imagination exercise, return to the present and apply the gained insight to today's world. What kind of design will be likely to last?

Several mentees have struggled with high “years of experience” requirements in job listings. Do not take those literally, especially in technical jobs

They’re basically an uncomfortable side effect of outdated recruiting processes. Recruiting will have a table that’s like “Expert means 10 years experience”, and when a manager says “I need an expert Rust programmer”, you get a job ad that says “10 years experience with Rust”.

It’s stupid. It tells you that at least part of the org is behind the times. But don’t let it stop you from applying. Only a very few places will hold you to it.

I’m so sad that Cybre.Space is shutting down, so I guess I’ll be looking for a new fedi-home :blobsad:

**I would really appreciate recommendations for a new Cybre-like instance to join!**

(boosts welcome)

If you desire with all your heart, friendship with every race on earth, your thought, spiritual and positive, will spread; it will become the desire of others, growing stronger and stronger, until it reaches the minds of all men. #inspiration #quotes #bahai
