Adam Hodowany and 1 other person liked Mateusz's review of 13 pięter:
13 pięter by Filip Springer
"Część pierwsza to ciekawa lekcja historii. Część druga to potwierdzenie, że niewiele się z tej historii wyciąga. Nie miałem o temacie pojęcia, teraz jestem lekko przerażony. Świetnie się to czyta, must read."

Joseph Heller
“Colonel Cargill was so awful a marketing executive that his services were much sought after by firms eager to establish losses for tax purposes. His prices were high, for failure often did not come easily. He had to start at the top and work his way down, and with sympathetic friends in Washington, losing money was no simple matter. It took months of hard work and careful misplanning. A person misplaced, disorganized, miscalculated, overlooked everything and open every loophole, and just when he thought he had it made, the government gave him a lake or a forest or an oilfield and spoiled everything. Even with such handicaps, Colonel Cargill could be relied on to run the most prosperous enterprise into the ground. He was a self-made man who owed his lack of success to nobody.”
Joseph Heller, Catch-22

“Depending on where The Great Filter occurs, we’re left with three possible realities: We’re rare, we’re first, or we’re fucked.”
Tim Urban, Wait But Why Year One: We finally figured out how to put a blog onto an e-reader

Haruki Murakami
“If there is a hard, high wall and an egg that breaks against it, no matter how right the wall or how wrong the egg, I will stand on the side of the egg. Why? Because each of us is an egg, a unique soul enclosed in a fragile egg. Each of us is confronting a high wall. The high wall is the system which forces us to do the things we would not ordinarily see fit to do as individuals . . . We are all human beings, individuals, fragile eggs. We have no hope against the wall: it's too high, too dark, too cold. To fight the wall, we must join our souls together for warmth, strength. We must not let the system control us -- create who we are. It is we who created the system. (Jerusalem Prize acceptance speech, JERUSALEM POST, Feb. 15, 2009)”
Haruki Murakami

“Stąd wiedział, że deklarację o bezpieczeństwie portali teleportacyjnych można było umieścić w tej samej przegródce, co twierdzenia: mój piesek nie gryzie, mój synek to dobry chłopiec, ten bigos jest świeży, pieniądze oddam najdalej pojutrze, noc spędziłam u przyjaciółki, na sercu leży mi wyłącznie dobro ojczyzny oraz odpowiesz tylko na kilka pytań i zaraz cię zwolnimy.”
Anonymous

“In the late 1970s, architects began thinking about common design challenges and their solutions as reusable patterns. Rather than starting every project with a blank slate and independently arriving at the conclusion that this doctor’s office was going to need a large room with lots of seating where patients could wait until the doctor was ready to see them, they identified design patterns, such as the “waiting room,” an abstract concept that could be implemented whenever useful. You could then have a name for the phenomenon and ask questions such as, “Do we really need a waiting room for this build?” You could also better define the concept itself: “You can’t have a waiting room without places to sit.”
