I’ve been thinking about how [Co-worker]'s info dumps just get ignored, but if he provided less up-front information, people would engage.
Also, when I send emails, detailing the whole problem guarantees the email won’t get read.
Also, recommending someone a whole book on something is worse than a blog post, is worse than a tweet.
This shouldn’t be so for me. If I want information on something, then a book should be better than a blog post, even if I don’t have time to read the whole book cover-to-cover. A whole book contains the information I need, and I need to get away from my fear of a wall of text.
As of now, all content lengths are equally usable. I’ll get good at x-raying the longer stuff. I'm already pretty practiced at this, but I want it to be second-nature.
