Writing brain and speaking brain verbalize differently for me, I have found. I’m considered a passable conference speaker, and, from friendly conversations to client meetings, I’m rarely at a loss for words. But the ideas I’m able to articulate with my mouth are nothing, absolutely nothing, to those I can sometimes share while writing.
I’ve felt this way for quite a long time. It’s always been difficult for me to coherently formulate a thought on the fly. Don’t get me wrong, I’m capable, and I may sound passible, but I do not do as well as when I write.
It’s true. Each installation of Babel includes a picture of Guy Fieri, and there is nothing you can do about it. I have no idea if this picture was supposed to be stripped out before pushing to npm, or how this mistake passed code review. Either way, it’s there, and it’s taking up precious space on millions and millions of 15″ Retina MacBook Pro hard drives across the world.
This is apparently true.
