Metafoundry 30: Confusion Matrices
Just as many English words are default male (unmarked), with a changed ending to connote female (marked; think 'actor' vs 'actress'), she argued that men's dress can be unmarked but women's dress is always marked. That is, there are decisions that men make about what they wear that are defaults, that aren’t even seen as a decision. In contrast, every decision that a woman makes about what she wears—heels vs, flats, pants vs, skirts, the length of a skirt and the height of a neckline, haircuts, jewelry—is freighted with cultural baggage. Take makeup. Especially in professional settings, for a woman, not wearing makeup is a noticeable, and notable, decision: marked. But for a man, not wearing makeup is not a decision—nobody notices when men aren't wearing makeup: unmarked. (Of course, a man wearing makeup is very marked indeed.)

Sarah Mei on Twitter: "All code is optimized. The difference is in what it’s optimized _for_."
All code is optimized. The difference is in what it’s optimized _for_.
Runtime speed is one thing you can optimize for, but it’s much more common to optimize for other types of speed. The three I most commonly see:
- speed of shipping the code
- speed of onboarding new devs
- speed of making changes after onboarding

Audacious Fox: A Brief Explanation of How I Choose Between Buying a Physical Book or the Kindle Edition
A Brief Explanation of How I Choose Between Buying a Physical Book or the Kindle Edition

I don’t. It’s impossible. Sisyphus spends less energy pushing his boulder than I do when debating paperback or Paperwhite. The only compromise is to buy both. My budget hates me, my wife shakes her head in disapproval, but my bookshelves have never looked better nor been more portable.
