0. A movement towards a disaggregated software stack with each layer (storage, compute platform, compute frameworks for batch/realtime/SQL etc.) built as composable legos and away from monolithic and inflexible software stacks (e.g. a database with its custom storage format, parser, execution engine, etc. in a vertically integrated fashion).
Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work, driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for, in order to get to a job that you need so you can pay for the clothes, car and the house that you leave empty all day in order to afford to live in it.
Drink a full glass of tepid water. The founder and editor-in-chief of Vox.com, Ezra Klein, told Thrive Global his top secret life hack. “Irritated and not sure why?” he wrote. “Drink water.” It might seem simplistic, but consider these two facts from a study published in The Journal of Nutrition: 1) Even mild dehydration — 1.5% loss in normal water volume in the body — can degrade how we are feeling, and 2) Our thirst sensation doesn’t really appear until we are 1 or 2% dehydrated. In other words, Klein is on to something: if you feel irritated and don’t now why, you’re probably dehydrated.
