A judge oversentences kids to private detention facilities in exchange for a kickback. This seems like a modern day slave trade to me. Unfortunately, I seriously doubt if he gets the harshest sentence available to him. However, I wonder how many other judges do something like this.
Recently I mentioned my rules for creating on Twitter. I have them written in a notebook, but I don’t think I have ever stated them on a podcast or put them in a blog post.
Remember that these rules apply to me and don’t reflect how I see what other people do.
- Don’t overthink a project, just do it.
- Do your best, despite what others might think.
- No one cares about your stuff like you do. Don’t expect them to.
- If you don’t like it, don’t release it.
- Act as if your stuff is the best there ever was and ever will be. If it isn’t, don’t admit there is anything better.
There are others, but they are more situational (‘”write when you have to, but otherwise speak”) or extremely common sense (“If you don’t know something, either learn it or find somebody who can answer your questions”).
