Software February 21 2017

I love software. There's so much of it.

There's nothing impressive about being able to operate software. It's designed specifically to be used by us! I'm always surprised to see so many people afraid of clicking on things they've never clicked on.

It's easy to get stuck in a pattern, but I'm always trying to click on all the things and see what they do. I never read the manual. YouTube videos are even worse.

When I was 18, I got a job as a software tester. It was our job to play with automation software all day and try to make it crash. If the goal is to make something idiot proof, then that meant we got to be IDIOTS.

If you want to make progress, you must allow yourself to be a stupid idiot. Just as long as it doesn't take you completely out of the game.

Keep on crashin' y'all!
