Three Commas Club

Three commas to imply a billion dollars as $1,000,000,000 has 3 commas. To be in the three commas club is to be a billionaire.

Richard’s literalness remains the one thing to rattle Russ. “You know what has three commas in it, Richard?” “A sentence with two appositive phrases in it?”

Rubber Duck Debugging

Many programmers have had the experience of explaining a programming problem to someone else, possibly even to someone who knows nothing about programming, and then hitting upon the solution in the process of explaining the problem. In describing what the code is supposed to do and observing what it actually does, any incongruity between these two becomes apparent.

"Hey dude, are you talking to someone?" Nah dude, I'm just rubber duck debugging. "Oh cool, thought you were crazy."

Pivot

We failed. Now, we're starting over, possibly with something completely different.

We started out by building a SoLoMo network for hermits. We've now pivoted to becoming the Uber of door-to-door encyclopedia sales.

What an investment banker experiences after moving to Silicon Valley because he is no longer at the top of the totem pole.

    @memobug true. For some definitions using the actual word made the example flow a little worse so I leave it out if it's obvious. What do you think?

Jack Dorsey

Founder of Square and Twitter. He reads alot of books on self-improvement and tries to build a zen-like culture within the work place like a poor man's Phil Jackson.

Jack Dorsey made us hold hands after the meeting today in a circle. It was awkward because I hear Stacy doesn't wash her hands after going to the bathroom.

Medium Data

The Rift

A title given to denote virtual reality. Popularized by people who have spent immense amounts of time in an Oculus Rift headset and were unable to fully communicate the things they had seen and experienced while present in what they consider a different realm.

Recruiter: Why should we hire you for our VR division?

Jack: Aye. In my time I have seen many things in the Rift. Things the likes of you, could never imagine...

Recruiter: Why are you crying?

Jack: I held my virtual daughter in my arms as the light vanished from her eyes. I fought dragons in Russia trying to protect the refugees of a city that's now burnt to the ground. I spent almost two years in isolation in the Rift reading about the ancient tombs of Java Script and Lisp. I'm hoping that this position will help me forget about my past. My time in the Rift.

Recruiter: Why am I crying...

Vestigial Code

A code probably once served a purpose, but doesn't anymore. You're afraid of removing it because after years it just looks right the way it is.

In evolutionary biology vestigial organs are the ones an organism probably once used but no longer serve a purpose today.

James: Dude help me debug my new one button app, "Dude."
Zeeshan: What is all this? None of it serves a purpose.
James: It's vestigial code that makes gives me confidence when making something new. I've just built everything on top of my dayspan code from freshman year until now. I commented it out, don't worry.
Zeeshan: You're a terrible human being, you know that?
