Hello G+! I am racking my brains trying to find a web citation about best practices in FLOSS development. As I remember it, this went beyond the usual license fetishes, and addressed notions of development community, users, etc. There were sub-topics like release schedules, maintainers, public development lists, bug reporting, etc? Ring any bells??  It outlined a more systematic criteria to characterize successful open source development projects from abandonware, etc.

House of Cards Season 2 Day Zero

transcribed ADK + BDK commentary

Vast Improvement over S1 last 6 episodes. S201 may be one of the finest serial hours. WTF!!
 
Some new form, a long-form of 12 hours inclusive. Not necessarily episodic as much as atmospheric.

Abigail keeps thinking, this should be HBO. Keeps thinking of HBO logo as appearing in opening. Why? What is quality TV? What is viewing? Why is Comcast+TimeWarner merger announced day before internet melts due to House of Cards Season 2 being released?

Plotting is delightful. Robin Wright doubles down. Spacey playing for keeps. Fanfic vs. basing on UK original, means S02 plotting and characters freed from original: this season is gonna be much more interesting.

More advanced forms of placement. Dunkin Donuts. Samsung, Apple, Blackberry influences from S01 commentary.

Fincher and visual aesthetic. Hella nice. Some of the themes,  angles, setups, slow tracking shots starting from wide shots usually the grammar of film. Evolution of digital production. Loving it.

DEEP. DARK. WE LIKE-Y

Every once in a while, at very irregular intervals, there's an awesome big wave surf competition in the Pacific Ocean, around HMB, Northern California.

It's been called for this Sunday, Jan 20 and can be streamed starting at 7:30 am PST via:

Put Bigelow's "Point Break" on in the second screen with mute, start listening to the Mermen, brew some tea, and watch this crazy sporting event. Then spend the rest of the day calling everybody dude.
