This interview with Marc Andreessen is mostly interesting for the talk about productivity and operations.
Challengers are great if they carry both sets of qualities: both questioning and delivering.
A useful overview of engineering manager archetypes to reflect and contrast the various responsibilities that managers can take on.
A very thorough treatment of how “Good Intent” is harmful to diversity and inclusion.

A lovely set of easter eggs hidden in Switzerland’s official maps.
