Robert’s Recent Updates

Robert liked a quote
The Design of Everyday Things by Donald A. Norman
“The problem with the designs of most engineers is that they are too logical. We have to accept human behavior the way it is, not the way we would wish it to be.”

The Design of Everyday Things by Donald A. Norman
“Rule of thumb: if you think something is clever and sophisticated beware-it is probably self-indulgence.”

Born a Crime by Trevor Noah
"This was my first audiobook, and I can't imagine experiencing it any other way. Trevor's talent with languages and voices, and his passionate storytelling voice, do so much to bring the story to life. I felt like I was with him during all of his a..." Read more of this review »

Robert shared a note and highlight from
Effective Java by Joshua Bloch
To describe the access level that applies when none is specified, this book uses the traditional package-private instead of the technically correct package access [JLS, 6.6.1].

Walter Kirn
“Leslie Titmuss bothered me. His name, it made me want to sneeze. I also thought I recognized it. I typed it into my laptop, a procedure that had lately held far too much suspense for me. Among the top results the search returned was a page from GoodReads, a literary website.”
Walter Kirn, Blood Will Out: The True Story of a Murder, a Mystery, and a Masquerade

Ed Catmull
“I tend to flood and freeze up if I’m feeling overwhelmed. When this happens, it’s usually because I feel like the world is crashing down and all is lost. One trick I’ve learned is to force myself to make a list of what’s actually wrong. Usually, soon into making the list, I find I can group most of the issues into two or three larger all-encompassing problems. So it’s really not all that bad. Having a finite list of problems is much better than having an illogical feeling that everything is wrong.”
