"The End of Average" is nothing short of an a manifesto for individualism that explains how we got into the statistical straight jacket that gives us marvels such as stack ranking, one-size-fits-all education, standardized tests that dont tell you anything, top down management structures that stifle innovative and creativity by design. Read it.

<< In November 2014, Anderson was told he was being terminated during the middle of the fellowship. His review performance placed him among the lowest five percent of Yahoo's employees, all of whom were being fired, his supervisor told him. >>

not for nothing, but, i would only ask managers to rank employees in a linear fashion so as to find out which managers would actually do it vs. those capable of telling me i was insane to want it. i'd fire the former. all of them, down to the last man, woman, or child.
Gregory Anderson says his supervisors consistently preferred to hire women.

I simply don't get those who use antidepressant medicine. Just start up Emacs and start playing with Melpa, Orgmode or one of the countless other modes. I find it rewarding and I can produce stuff that makes my work life and hobbies easier.

After 40 years of typing, its time to start trying some ergonomic things ... sticky keys for ctrl first ... I guess I will find out how ingrained the muscle memory is (very!). …
Emacs makes frequent use of the Control key. On a conventional keyboard, the Control Key is at the lower left corner of the keyboard, usually not very large and is pressed by the pinky finger. For those who use emacs all day, this will result in Repetitive Strain Injury.
