Starting 1st March I have officially changed to management track, as the team lead for the Data Platform team. It’s not a new role (I did that in my previous company), but now I have more people to interact with, more teams to talk to and more stakeholders to keep happy. A fun challenge.
I followed a similar path in ergonomy, but in two steps. First, I learned Colemak to get my typing to be more fluid and using all fingers, then I switched to a split keyboard (sadly broken now, I’m now awaiting a Keyboardio Model 100).
I’m glad to know I’m not the only weirdo around. For a while I used a system based in the supermemo algorithm (I think revision 2, implemented in a spreadsheet more or less) to keep in touch with people in a way that maximised their remembrance of me (it indirectly also improves my own, which is good). You could argue this loses “something” of the real connection, but if I didn’t actually care I wouldn’t go to such lengths.
