If you make a piece of software, and people are required to use that piece of software in order to, say, pay for their housing or groceries or pay back a loan, you are on the hook to make sure that software works for _every single person_ who needs to use it.

All of them.

Every screen reader user. Every person with muscle issues who can't use a mouse. Everyone who doesn't speak English. Everyone with three first names, or no last name. Everyone who is Irish or Jewish and has a ' in their name. Everyone with slow internet.

EVERY person.

"Oh we don't have the resources to do that!" Great. Then you don't have the resources to make and sell that kind of software. Pack up and go home.

my most useless skill: an intuition for whether a fruit is from the family of rosids

maximize linguistic magic powers 

heard a guy at a café say "I want to learn every language" and while I believe that would be practically (and in other ways) impossible, it makes me wonder if there is some kind of skillset you could acquire that would maximize the number of different language speaking humans you were able to partially communicate with 🤔 💭

"That was so powerful," he says

"Yes sir," replies his servant

"It's a great commentary on how fucked up the world is"

"Yes sir"

"Life is terrible for both the destitute and the ultra-wealthy"

"Yes sir"

"Perhaps the wealthy even more so"

"Sir?"

Musk picks up his phone and makes a phone call

"Yes hello, I need to buy an island, I just had an idea"

The servant perspires, anxiously
