Dave Snowden says this video on how to do a “Peer Assist” put him a curmudgeon role.

See how far into the cartoon you get before it has the same effect on you. I hit curmdugeon mode about 40% in. The combination of teletubbies soundtrack, monotonous voiceover and a severe case of best-pratice-itis was just too much.

The basic idea of peer assist seems very sane and human. But it’s ruined for me when it’s turned into a series of rigid-sounding principles that make it all sound very antiseptic and incredibly laborious.
