The personal brain-dump of Garrett Coakley

Firgun

While performing a long overdue catch-up of things I’d bookmarked to read later, I was introduced to the lovely Hebrew word “Firgun” by Jo Franchetti’s talk about mentoring “Being The Help You Wish You’d Had”.

[…] an informal modern Hebrew term and concept in Israeli culture, which describes genuine, unselfish delight or pride in the accomplishment of the other.

I’ve embedded the presentation from FFConf below, and it’s well worth your time. Jo’s slides can be found on Google Docs.
