20
+not a report. [Check out my previous (also first) entry!][prev]

26
+### [Some Initial Thoughts][link:1] by Josh Marshall
27
+
28
+I didn't follow too closely to the debates (I rarely do); I tend to read recaps
29
+and not spend time watching, in _real time_, people not giving a shit about my
30
+existence but yet still want me to contribute to theirs. `</rant>`. This however:
31
+
32
+> Even if Trump collapses over the next few weeks, when we look back on this race,
33
+> I think it will be clear that in various ways over several weeks, Donald Trump
34
+> destroyed Bush's candidacy.
35
+
36
+That is something I've noticed from reviewing the points slung from either
37
+party. Something else we already knew:
38
+
39
+> On balance, not a dominating night for Trump. But I think he maintained a hold on the
40
+> issue that is driving his success: xenophobia and extreme hostility to immigrants.
41
+
42
+Can Trump even do that? :confounded:

44
+### [Google Is 2 Billion Lines of Code—And It’s All in One Place][link:2] by Wired
45
+
46
+**Wat** :frowning:.
47
+
48
+> She ([Rachel Potvin][person:1]) estimates that the software needed to run all
49
+> of Google's Internet services—from Google Search to  Gmail to Google Maps—
50
+> spans some 2 billion lines of code. By comparison, Microsoft's Windows
51
+> operating system—one of the most complex software tools ever built for a 
52
+> single computer, a project **under development since the 1980s** —is likely
53
+> in the realm of **50 million lines**.
54
+
55
+WHAT?
56
+
57
+> So, building Google is roughly the equivalent of building the Windows operating
58
+> system _40_ times over.
59
+
60
+Bruh. In short:
61
+
62
+![An explosion with a smoke cloud.](/images/bomb.gif)
63
+
64
+To be honest, this is an interesting view point with the whole explosion of
65
+micro-services nowadays. I figure that people would store the logic in separate
66
+trees but it seems like it's going to be a central tree that handles everything
67
+but can be used to invoke specific parts when necessary. The latter is the
68
+approach I'm taking for a personal project.

+### [Your First Job May Not Be Your Dream Job][link:3] by Treehouse
71
+
72
+> Entry level positions, with limited experience, may not be where you’re
73
+> expecting them to be. They’re not in the companies with the aforementioned
74
+> generous perks.
75
+
76
+Yeah, we need to un-plug from the over hype of Silicon Valley, man.
77
+
78
+> It’s not the end of the world.
79
+
80
+I need this to be told to me after _every_ interview. You put all of
81
+your faith, effort and hopes into this interview only to get a 'no'. It's beyond
82
+disheartening.
83
+
84
+> You’re not expected to work there all your life, a year under your belt is
85
+> enough experience for other employers. It's perfectly acceptable to move on
86
+> after a year. 
87
+
88
+This little difference in software companies from traditional companies is
89
+something that's hard to translate to people in other fields or transitioning
90
+in. "I don't have to stay? Why did I join?" I'd say **to learn** and **grow**.

+## Physical Publications
93
+
94
+I didn't read **any physical books** this week :sob:! It has been solely an
95
+web article and podcast heavy week. I'm going to have to skip some episodes
96
+of upcoming ones and stick my head back into books from last week.
