How do you teach animals new tricks? With positive rewards only. You ignore bad behavior.

And you end up with a fat spoiled brat ... I mean dog.

If you really take a look at the animal kingdom, you'll find out that the animals use both positive and negative feedback to teach their offspring "new tricks". There's not just "here, that's what you do", but rather also "no! This is not how you should behave." But the animals did not read didactic texts from acclaimed professors with no actual students, child-less well-meaning feminists or mothers neglecting their spoiled brats 'cause they have no time for the kids due to all the conferences and books.

    [Corion]: I guess I should not read some discussions on HackerNews - the crowd there is weirdly different - "you have to stay current in tech" (by following all the latest JS trends) is a meme there, but it doesn't really match my experience
    [Corion]: At least in my area, experience can beat most new tech anyway because most new tech is just a rehash of things abandoned in the 70s and we still have a lot of that ;)
    [Corion]: choroba: Ah, that will be next Friday for $work ;) Drinking enough water is key ;))
    [Corion]: But then, maybe that's just my experience with things, and maybe Hacker News is just people much younger who haven't seen more than one tech cycle...
    [choroba]: s/water/bear/ and s/enough/too much/
    [choroba]: beer
    [choroba]: oh ok
    [marto]: I crashed the ScotLUG Christmas night, having never actually been to ScotLUG
    [choroba]: Corion yeah, I probably already told you about how Bjarne Stroustrup was asked whether he still watched the new tech trends and what really impressed him
    [choroba]: His reply was "I watch them, but I haven't been impressed in the last 10 years. There's been nothing new". That was 2 years ago :)
