Before moving, I went through some piles of papers and found a couple of pieces with the note “Love is not enough”. I am pretty sure they were notes I took from a book of Mark Manson (likely The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck – I need to re-read) And somehow this morning, I got this video in youtube.
Love is not enough:
Love doesnt equal compatibility: Love is emotional. Compatibility is logical
Love doesnt solve your relationship problems (amen)
Love is not always worth sacrificing yourself: Dont tolerate behaviours in your partner that you wouldn’t do with your best friend. A loving relationship is supposed to supplement your individual identity, not damage it or repace it.
The only way you can fully enjoy the love in your life is to choose to make something else more important than love.
Friendship > Love
In my case, I dont really think about love but companionship. I think too many times about that “perfect” companion to go through life (good and bad moments). And then I am very solitary person (it gets worse with age). And then you are not sociable, and many things you read tell you that having a strong social support is critical in mental health, life satisfaction, etc. So it is like in the middle of two paths.
I didnt know anything about this conference until the last two months started to read news about it from different blogs. I am surprised the webpage doesnt link to the videos. This one is quite interesting but after the 15 minute becomes very hardcode for me.
From this blog, I could read an interesting presentation about network performance using satellite services. I guess there are many blogs about the performance of Starlink but this was the first time I read something about it. I was surprised the results were not that good even with the latest version of Startlink (that I didnt know neither)
I checked out this blog note from Google about Falcon. To be honest, I dont really understand the “implementation”. Is it purely software? Does it interact with merchant Ethernet silicon ASICs? There is so much happening trying to get Ethernet similar to Infiniband that I am wonder how this fits outside Google infra. At the end of the day, Ethernet has been successful because everybody could use it for nearly anything. Just my opinion.
I watched this video yesterday by coincidence . I was keen to know about making learning addictive. And honestly, I liked the video, it was funny and informative. And it is interesting that you can turn evil manipulations into positive ones. I didnt know the presenter was the founder of duolingo and he was from Guatemala. I use duolingo to learn languages, I am not sure if you can really learn a language this way (at least I am not that smart) but it helps to practice a little, and then the compound interest should get you to some decent level. This remind me to brilliant. It is something I wanted to use, but at the end of the day, I dont have time for all things I would like to do. I need to focus in the things I really need to do.
