Haven't been on social a lot lately. Work (growth) + My Dad was finally discharged after a lengthy hospital stay due to a major stroke; We remain hopeful for his full recovery soon (I have a list of bs for him to weigh in on … when he’s ready♥️). Also, I have a new neice!

Interesting flicks:

1. Rotten () - the chocolate episode will cure your chocolate habit

2. Our Universe (Netflix) - stunning visuals, interesting info for astronomy geeks, Morgan Freemen

3. Pepsi, Where’s My Jet (Netflix) - Corporations doing what corporations do

4. Dawn of Humanity () - human evolution, South African cave exploration; featuring a team of female anthropologists

This card caused so much chaos. Here are more for your consideration:

1. Swap card allowed - swap hands with another player

2. Stacking action cards is allowed

3. Play out of turn - if you have an exact match, you can play out of turn provided that you play before the player in turn; this will skip all players ahead of you

4. Red Zero card = Draw 10, then every player must shift their hand to the next player

5. Show your hand - ask any player to show you their hand

Retreat Weekend #1. Only focused on 5 things (in no particular order):

1. Prioritize sleep & waking up without an alarm.

2. Go outside (walk)

3. Practice Mindfulness/Meditation , Prayer or Yoga (reconnecting to the present)

4. Say “no” to things you really don’t want to do (or make a list of things to say yes to). Or perform a calendar audit …. But only if you feel like it.

5. Journal (helpful for “brain dumps” & self reflection)

I often provide mentorship & advisory support to emerging & teams. When pitching solutions, it’s common to be met with a word salad of emerging tech used (, , etc)

I’d love to see a culture shift in tech … more focus on outcomes, less centering of tools. You can build a house with a screwdriver, but in some cases, a screwdriver may not be the best tool for the job. I’d like to see more people explain why the tools selected are the best for the job.

FYI According to Reiss’ theory, the “16 Basic Desires” that drive nearly all human behavior are:

acceptance, curiosity, eating, family, honor, idealism, independence, order, physical activity, power, romance, saving, social contact, status, tranquility and vengeance.

On AI, Coding & Art: A proposed class action lawsuit alleges that the creation of AI-powered coding assistant GitHub Copilot relies on copyright-protected repositories of code. This may have impact on other AI generated works (music, arts … I see a lot of similarities in the act of coding and the act of creating art).

More details on the proposed lawsuit here —> theverge.com/2022/11/8/2344682
