There are lots of cool technical improvements to Rust that I want the project to achieve this year, and a few in particular that I’m definitely going to be putting a lot of time into. But this blog post is going to talk about none of them. Instead, I want to talk about organizational debt, and how badly the Rust project needs to deal with it in 2019.

BBC Finally Admits Its Famous ‘Women Write Better Code’ Story Was Fake News | Heat Street
When the issue of "fake news" came to prominence at the end of this year's election cycle, traditional media outlets were the firsts to engage in relentless finger-pointing. Journalists everywhere deplored the spread of misleading, lazily reported and, in some cases, totally fabricated stories that had been facilitated by social media. That'd be ignoring — of course — that in a competitive
