Geek Hypervisor Mode; staying sane in the insane world

I call being a professional "geek hyper-visor mode". Namely, it is where you put you wants and personality aside to get the job done and work effectively.

What does this mean?

It means your religion of OS, programming language, library, framework are all out of context.

It means your design philosophy is aligned to what the team can execute on.

It means your goals are aligned with the companies goals.

It means you pick up new tools in your arsenal to #win.

It means exercising good judgement.


The fundamental problem of hyper-visor mode is that it can wind you up.

The wife helps.

Side projects help.

Comedy helps a lot.

Writing helps.

Cursing, oh, cursing lots helps. Fuck yeah!
