Surely they were thinking about power over USB, orientation-agnostic,​ and display-over-USB back when they started!     * Why have there been 4 evolutions of USB cables over the years?

 You (Nolan) aren't necessarily very good at economic development. But, you're apparently pretty good at getting paid a lot of money for doing something you don't mind and even like sometimes!. So...give money instead. But! be "​open"​ / "​willing"​ to change to something as frustrating and gut-wrenching as ministering to murderous tribesmen. How's that for laying down your pride! You (Nolan) aren't necessarily very good at economic development.

 +===== 2019 =====
 +=== Vacation ===
 +15 days - 2 days for summer reunion - 6+1 days for robotics trips. Leaves 5 days about, not counting unfull 8 hours, but lunchtime.
 +
 +
 +Today I don't really want to write more documentation. We haven'​t done it that much, thankfully, but agonizing over every last word for a dumb CLI command so meaning is clear and we aren't grammatically incorrect isn't my cup of tea right now, regardless of how many people it helps.
 +
 +=== General ===
 +Is it so bad to work on a project for a while? To switch basically means to lose most of the understanding and ability to make good architecture level conclusions...however it's good to mix it up and check out what other people are doing too!
 +
 +=== AEP Celebration ===
 +Good time. Had a question for Mohamed, but was basically interrupted from someone in marketing/​sales who had a long discussion about plans for future products and to whom 10s of millions of dollars were in the balance. A rather important conversation with several miscommunications resolved, only occurring because of a celebration for a previous generation product because one person was in Arizona and another in Oregon.
 +
 +Mohamed answered my question about "why only 6 AEP dimms on CLX vs. 12" saying that customers <​always?>​ wanted to shore up aep bandwidth with ddr4.
 +
 +
 +
 +Looking at OpenWater req, I am disappointed that I'm not practiced/​skilled in that work. It's definitely approachable. I also like it because they so clearly are improving things for a lot of folks.
 +
 +Also, I was doing some thinking earlier today. It's likely that code generation systems will start taking off in the next 20 years. All you have to do is provide examples, specs of what you want. What jobs will remain, since programming (in the typical sense, "​talking computer"​) is heading out the door?
 +  * Example gathering and spec writing
 +  * Working with hardware, new sensors / physics
 +  * Debugging? Knowing where to look.
 +
 +I think I'm most motivated by the outcome, the application. If that's even at all generic or worse for things I don't agree with, then not as much fun. 
 +
 +Other than learning about the basics of reducing expenses and investing the extra in a wise low-overhead way, I don't really like spending my life trying to outsmart the market in a highly researched way. It feels like there'​s no gain to society in general by betting on stocks, and soon I won't need more money (which is the main outcome from that). Granted, for startups and things they need capital to innovate and deliver, so I guess that's useful, but I mostly want to enable good tech and not make a bunch of money off of it.

-===== Sustainable Career by Rick Coulson =====+===== Rick Coulson ===== 
 +Sometimes you need to do nothing. Some poor things that Intel tends to do: 
 +  * Moving teams 
 +  * Cross geo 
 +   
 +Is ipmctl important?​ 
 +  * Yes, business wise 
 +  * Is it necessary? Yes, might change form (go to bmc), but creating goals and getting debug information is still needed. Especially noticeable when it breaks. ​  
 + 
 +   
 +You won't understand the details as you become more senior. Therefore in a time and brain limited environment:​ 
 +  * It becomes more about trust / developing a working model of their behavior. Do they understand things completely?​ 
 +  * Is this person okay with telling an inconvenient truth? When they screw up
