The new Google+ redesign is looking pretty good. They desperately need a dark theme though.

This would not stop a programmer for long that uses any decent revision control system .. like Git for example. Still, don't do this :)

Although I was only 7 in the summer of 1975, I remember pretty clearly how much the movie Jaws dominated the public consciousness. I particularly recall waiting patiently by the radio all day to catch a replay of "Mr. Jaws".

Watching this guy create and test a bot for playing agar. Don't know how well his AI is doing but his test harness is cool.

I created a sound file that is one hour long that is very similar to this except mine overlays oscillating white noise (sounds like ocean waves). It is the only soundtrack I can use to drown out background noise that doesn't engage the part of my brain required to program. This site allows you to play gentle music as well but I have no idea how other programmers function while listening to music :)

Any music without song / lyrics works for me. Lyrics I can do while programming too, sometimes, but never while reading.

Sometimes I also use http://calm.com

I've been holding on to the hope that Slashdot would somehow regain its former glory but based on the consistently low quality of both articles and comments, it is irretrievably lost. The further tainting of its reputation by the parent company's actions with Sourceforge is a killing blow. Thank goodness for Arstechnica!

This is the most radical change to come to photography since it all began and is the future of digital imaging. You take the picture, then you choose the shot.

I don't always write regular expressions but when I do, I forget how to do it the next day.

If you are a suffering fan of Firefly, you need to see this.
(watch the trailer on this page)
When cult sci-fi TV show Firefly was canceled more than a decade ago, actor Alan Tudyk could have become a tragi-comic figure, increasingly in the...

Although only present in spirit, Gene Roddenberry has the best line in this conversation.

This looks like a very good tear-down article on Beats headphones. If you aren't already aware of the power of marketing, this is a good introduction. Some of the main takeaway points are:
- $200 headphones made with $17 worth of parts.
- $7 of those parts are the packaging.
- 1/3 the weight of the headphones is comprised by metal weights.
Is there more to Beats than meets the eye?

I usually buy Sennheiser. Mostly because they tend to sound better than any other brand in the same price class.
