  1. Why do I like radar threads? Time zone independent Encourages

    contemplation / reflection Links! Evidence! (understand the system) Important topics resurface
  2. Beautiful is better than ugly. Explicit is better than implicit.

    Simple is better than complex. Complex is better than complicated. Flat is better than nested. Sparse is better than dense. Readability counts. Special cases aren't special enough to break the rules. … THE ZEN OF PYTHON
  3. Responsive is better than fast. It's not fully shipped until

    it's fast. Anything added dilutes everything else. Practicality beats purity. Approachable is better than simple. Mind your words, they are important. Speak like a human. Half measures are as bad as nothing at all. Encourage flow. Non-blocking is better than blocking. Favor focus over features. Avoid administrative distraction. Design for failure. Keep it logically awesome. GITHUB ZEN
  4. You should not expect either of these fine gentlemen to

    change what they're doing, and that's the whole point. They created these roles and put themselves in it. We're just giving it a name.
