I used to sleep exactly 5.5hrs every day, now for a while, I am sleeping about 6hrs, where my target is to reach 6.5hrs. Adequate sleep is very important. If you have sleep deprivation for a long time, it will directly impact your creative capacity and memory function. And oversleep will not only make you lazy, it will cause tons of health issue.
“Knowledge and productivity are like compound interest.” Given two people of approximately the same ability and one person who works ten percent more than the other, the latter will more than twice outproduce the former. The more you know, the more you learn; the more you learn, the more you can do; the more you can do, the more the opportunity – it is very much like compound interest. I don't want to give you a rate, but it is a very high rate. Given two people with exactly the same ability, the one person who manages day in and day out to get in one more hour of thinking will be tremendously more productive over a lifetime.
Yes, I am back from Paris, after Attending WordCamp Europe 2017. It was a remarkable trip but started with some major hiccups. I have shared our detail experience with WCEU in the weDevs blog, here I will share my semi-horrible experience with France Embassy, which made this whole trip very very uncertain.
MailChimp recorded $280 million in revenue in 2015 and is on track to top $400 million in 2016, but they never raised a single dime from Venture Capital, wholly owned by Mr. Chestnut and his co-founder, Dan Kurzius — now employs about 550 people, and by next year it will be close to 700.
Raising money in Silicon Valley style, and running it the way Venture Capitalist pushes mostly teaches you bad habits from the start, and you end up being too good at spending money, via Showing-Up and also targeting Un-Natural Growth.
As like any server geek, I like to benchmark whatever new recipe I am cooking. Geekbench is one of many tools I use to measure performance. Geekbench is easy, not too much resource extensive, so you could run it even in live production server, which everything keep working as it is. But I would suggest you run those operation in your low hour.
Here is very simple guide to run Geekbench in your Linux server.
Note: Its better for those seeking PhDs, and postdocs in data science.

A very interesting and super honest article by Jim Hamill at The Huffington Post about our city Dhaka, I read few days ago, but did not got time to share. If you are living in Dhaka or even never been to Dhaka all MUST READ it. I have always said Bangladesh is a very different place, (in good way), from anywhere in this planet. The writer did not have any idea, and no expectation from Dhaka. He wanted to see Dhaka, like raw, like in normal eyes. His 72 hours exploration is just amazing. Its funny how he described Rickshaw, Morog Polau, compares Sadar Ghat with Venice's Grand Canal (vaguely), talks about California Fried Chicken (CFC). So funny 😀
He was also very astonished not to see a single tourist in Dhaka City (note he is talking about tourist, not foreigner) in his 72hr in Dhaka. We need work on that, we need to create ecosystem to make ourself explorable to outsider. We need good stories, PR worldwide to let people know about our wealth.
With the recent change in public API and available data, we now could see more then just the download number. This is a great post by Brian Krogsgard at Post Status, does not only shows the top plugins by active install, but compare it with other data source to make sense. Happy reading!
