This is a brief talk I gave at WordCamp US at the end of 2015. It’s about better communication in online communities. It is, however, useful for all communities online and off.
I’m quizzing myself on verbal attack patterns and control structures in PHP. They aren’t related other than that they are both on my mind at the moment.
This is between video game playing and dog walking, so it’s a weirdly productive and varied holiday!
Is there an app that matches people based on their streamed content? Because I feel like that would be a great use of some entrepreneur’s time and effort.
Once they’ve got that all figured out, they need to figure out a way to gauge and account for watching styles. For instance, I feel like all watching of movies and/or tv is really an interactive experience. It’s all one long puzzle for you to try to solve before the rest of the audience.
If you want to sit down and watch anything in silence, I am your worst nightmare.
Since the last time I mentioned my Spanish learning adventure, I have made it to 15% fluency according to the app. As a colleague subsequently mentioned, there surely isn’t that much of a gradient when it comes to language fluency. Surely it’s more of a “now you can hold a conversation whereas before you could not.”
Be that as it may, 15% fluent I am which means I can talk semi-coherently about half of the days of the week or very coherently about whether or not my dog eats rice, drinks milk, or is in fact my dog.
Si, mi perro comen arroz.
