The Guarantee of Success: "It’s far from uncommon for authorities and politicians to use the distribution characteristics of broadly random events as a mark of success for some intervention, when in fact they’re almost certainly just statistical noise."

When discussing fatalities in traffic, randomness is an issue, and one should not fall for trends where there are none.

Scala Types: "Whenever someone in your team is confused about the exact meaning of an Option in your code, this is a good indicator that you should introduce your own algebraic data type that captures the implicit semantics of your domain"

Missing Empathy: "Those "Sandy Hook Truthers" harass the father of a victim because they are afraid. They are afraid their own children could be viciously gunned down in cold blood any day of the week, bullets tearing their way through the bodies of the teachers standing in front of them, desperately trying to protect them from being murdered. They can't do anything to protect their children from this, and in fact there's nothing any of us can do to protect our children from being murdered at random, at school any day of the week, at the whim of any mentally unstable individual with access to an assault rifle. That's the harsh reality."

Which reminds me of what we should teach our children: "No Fear, No Envy, No Meanness"

Pagination - in depth.
For the SEOcampixx 2016 we tested different types of pagination and analyzed the effect on depth of levels, PageRank and CheiRank distribution.

We now compiled a comprehensive guide to explain when to you use it and how to implement a proper pagination. And of course, we summarized all our test results in great detail.

With this guide you get an extensive view on the effect of pagination on your website structure.

Why do a few modern languages opt out of exceptions? Some people argue that the concept is bad, but in this article I argue that exceptions are great and the lack of good support in some newer languages is more likely to be because implementing good exception support is hard.
