Glyph Lefkowitz talks with Dave Rael about empathy in software development, the importance of a focus on people, and big social problems

Glyph Lefkowitz is a human being who writes computer programs.  The thing he's most famous for is having written the Twisted framework, which is an event-driven system for writing programs in Python. He's done some other things too. He currently works for Rackspace on open source technologies like Twisted. He has worked for Apple on an enterprise calendaring software.

Glyph's top 3 tips for delivering more value:
  1. Practice self-care ("Empathy starts with you")
  2. Expand the circle of emphty outward from self to those with whom you interact
  3. Don't trust your intuition - verify your expectations and get a different perspective
