@AlexandraErin If I just tweet this to you, does it count?
@AlexandraErin Hmmm. Apparently that's legal.
I have a lot of respect for you, have followed you for a while, and tho there's quibbles here or there, no matter.

Not being able to reply to you, in favor or opposed, makes me feel I should move on. I didn't come here for radio stations I can't interact with?
I'm down with getting 'splained about why it's the right thing, or even why it's the wrong thing but the best we can do. But, spozing you answer, very possibly I won't even be able to reply.
I stress: not some attack or what not. We all gotta do we gotta do. I'm guessing your hate mail is orders of magnitude greater than mine, and I do get it. Even if I unfollow, it won't be mean or angry, it'll just be sad for my loss.
No bad thing. Peace to you. I think you're smart and kind, and I read your analyses with considerable confidence I'll learn something. That will persist whatever.

When we talk about transitioning to microtest TDD, we have to figure out how to provide the right experiences in the right order. That's why I propose we start by getting the experience of changing a well-microtested graceful class.
Folks, my ideas about changing code are thoroughly entangled with my ideas about changing the world, a topic of far greater importance. Let's geek out, by all means, but let's also act outside the monitor.

Black Lives Matter.
"Create Experiences, Not Arguments" is one of the core habits of change-harvesters. We want to take that slogan very seriously when we approach any significant change to our practice. And microtest TDD, believe me, is a significant change.

Here's A Tribe Called Quest, "Can I Kick It".

There's no quest but quest.
Funny! Smart! Tradition-enriched!

Strong as *shit*.

This a nice "I'm Confessin'". Lizz Wright.

One of her takes that just features her voice more than her sense of style.
Wright has a lovely not-quite-contralto, but what I really like in general is the richness of her voice connecting, both with the tradition she pulls from and the combo she plays with.

Richard "Rabbit" Brown, "James Alley Blues".

It came up, swear to God, I didn't hand-pick, even tho I know it's an overplay.
This is one of my most most most favorite blues songs. I listen to a lot of music, and a lot of it I don't even know where it comes from, and it pleases me this much or that, and I move on.

Heh. Somebody arguing that remote work is less efficient and citing the last year. Cuz, you know, *that* was the one variable, and everything else was the same as two years ago.
NB: I am not arguing the case for or against remote work. I am arguing the case against the all too typically inane suggestion that the key difference between 2019 efficiency and 2020 efficiency was having to use Zoom.
Yes. We did a lot more remote work in 2020 than 2019. We also stayed in our tiny unprepared spaces with our parents and children and pets, in some cases 24/7 for days on end, endlessly stressed in concern for everything from our livelihood to our life.

Ray Price, "For the Good Times".

Kristofferson wrote it, and released it on his own debut album, but I've always been incredibly partial to this Ray Price take.
There's a time in Carmen McRae's career where her voice has finally begun to shred from whiskey & smoke, but only just so. Something about Price's voice here feels the same. He had a controlled crackle in his tone that few crooners, country or otherwise, could handle.
