With all of my new-found inside time on weekends, I have found myself diving into—or, more truthfully, just aimlessly falling down—any number of subject matter rabbit holes (like how code deployments work at Slack… interesting trivia: between staging and production, they have ‘dogfood’ and ‘canary’ environments). For the most part, randomly clicking around and reading stuff was something limited to browsing Wikipedia, but is now happening more frequently all over the place. This is a pretty big reversal to the pattern my (and others’) internet usage over the past couple of years had started to follow. I think that might be a good thing.
