Leaving work early because I haven’t seen my kids in a while.

Instead of sneaking out, I let my team know where I’m going / why.

If you want to create a culture of flexibility, you have to remove the stigma of guilt.

Don’t apologize or act as if you’re doing something wrong.

@MaskedTorah@twitter.com I suspect better. If it's not an equilibrium, it's usually better in the long run to get to the next equilibrium as quickly as possible, and I distrust the supposed optimality of any equilibrium which is based on widespread ignorance of a major cost.

Perhaps people do not install adblockers despite the large benefits because they just don't know? Thinking about a Google Surveys like this:

"Do you know about adblockers: browser extensions like AdBlock Plus or ublock?"
"Yes, & I have one installed"
"Yes, but I do not *"

Suppose you have cancer and you have to choose between a black box AI surgeon that cannot explain how it works but has a 90% cure rate and a human surgeon with an 80% cure rate. Do you want the AI surgeon to be illegal?

Today I picked up Great Expectations and was suddenly struck with the knowledge that Miss Havisham is probably not very old at all, actually, so I looked it up, and at the beginning of the book, she is, according to Dickens' notes, "scarcely forty."

The tiny church of Panagia Gorgona in Mytilini, Greece, is known for housing an old icon that depicts the Virgin Mary as a mermaid with a fish tail. It is not known who created the icon, but it is older than the church itself.
