🤔 David Well, do you have any family you could fallback on if things went south? If so, and if you don't have any other major obligations like raising kids, then IMO go for the higher risk job if you enjoy working a lot.
Felix Yes I do not have any kind of responsibilities which will affect when smth. go wrong. Thank your for your opinion! It will be more work but I love this kind of area.
Felix Qutting my current safe job where I have a realy good team but getting underpaid VS start working for a new company ( much less big then the current) with the oppurtunity to learn so much new I'm interrested in + get paid much more. Help.

Felix starting a side-hustle with freelancing in Go development
Cole Hudson Incidentally 'Why We Sleep' has quite a few errors within, Alexey Guzey wrote up a great critique here: guzey.com/books/wh...
Pmh We Are the Nerds by Christine Lagorio-Chafkin, about Reddit
Felix Yesterday I read the last page of "Why we sleep". I can recommend this to everyone. Read it ASAP. Good sleep can prevent so much health issues.
Felix What are you currently reading? I need inspirations

Ember Arlynx the collapsing empire by john scalzi
Chetan Vashisht Developer Hegemony, not very inspiring :/ But I highly recommend Signal and Noise
✌️ Facethewolf I'm waiting for "Working in Public" by Nadia Eghbal to be released tomorrow. Sounds like such an interesting book.
Cole Hudson Why The West Rules For Now (very well written), The Disappearance of Childhood (meh), and How Children Fail
💹 Rj Eddy Snowden's Permanent Record
Pedro Madruga Chaos - James Gleick
Prasoon Preparing for the release of Stormlight Archive book 4 by rereading books 1-3. Recommend: "The Way of Kings"
🍁 John J. Deep Work by Cal Newport. It's excellent.
🗿 Ali Andre Gide - The Fruits of the Earth
Dan Heath Rebel Ideas by Matthew Syed - nice bit of inspiration for how to break status quo

Adsr The Cyberiad - Stanislaw Lem

Ashley Charlton Financial Freedom by Grant Sabatier
🌌 Tom Borges' Fictions
🧞 Bit Dune. It's a great book and the time I spend at home now made me feel less intimidated at the size
🎲 Jamie The Moon is Down by John Steinbeck. No idea where the book came from, but I'm happy to have it in my possession. I absolutely loved The Grapes of Wrath. Going to look for a copy of East of Eden as soon as I can go to a second-hand bookshop
Bhuvan Designing Data-Intensive Applications by Martin Kleppmann
☀️ James I'm re-reading Pale Fire. If you haven't read any Nabokov yet, please put him on your list!
🍃 Matt Harwood I'm re-reading 'Principles' by Ray Dalio. Always sets me on the straight and narrow :)
☔ Johannes Death's End by Liu Cixin, the third book in the Remembrance of Earth's Past trilogy. A to me in parts very cynical but intriguing take on the sci-fi genre.
🧅 Onion Samson Reading Catch-22 for the first time. Halfway through. It's hilarious and brilliant. Power struggles, hierarchy, and lots of ludicrous moments to laugh along with.
Jakub Janarek "Crashed" by Adam Tooze - a recount and explanation of the '08 financial crysis written 2 years ago or so. So far, very dense but rewarding.
🧙 Nathan Feeser Little Brother by Cory Doctorow, it's enjoyable so far.
🎛️ Mesut Ucar Malloreon - David Eddings for the nth time
📷 Alessio Ezra Pound letters
Huw I liked Deep Work but found it was hard to fully put into practice.
Rudolph Quijano Landau's mechanics
Joseph Gilmore Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace. It's a wild ride so far!
🤔 David Since Dune was mentioned I'd like to add in 'A Fire Upon the Deep' by Vernor Vinge. It was an interesting read and certain portions of the book were compelling in that it caused me to sit and reflect upon what it means to exist as a species. It's an exciting read with drama on a large scale, and has caused me to want to read more sci-fi classics
