  • The Dvorak keyboard layout. I had a coworker a few years ago who was a Dvorak evangelist, talking about how much time he saved from typing efficiency alone. Seemed like a textbook case of effort justification to me. There is no efficiency gain big enough for me to want to reroute the muscle memory in my hands.

  • Blockchain. Not only is it buzzwordy and overhyped, but the energy consumption necessary to mine cryptocurrencies based on the blockchain is an environmental hazard and a huge ethical concern.

  • Anything having to do with the Javascript framework fights/web components stuff. I know enough html/css/javascript to make my personal website and tiny doodles run. For anything more complicated than that, I have great front end developer coworkers. Plus, the framework wars seem highly dogmatic and way too emotional for me.
