Super-fun video of genetically generated gaits for simulated bipeds. (The video is a year old but new to me.)

Here's the paper: http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~van/papers/2013-TOG-MuscleBasedBipeds/2013-TOG-MuscleBasedBipeds.pdf

Mr. Zinsser was a prolific author, editor and teacher, but it was his role as an arbiter of good writing that resonated widely and deeply.

This answer to "What is the appeal of dynamically-typed languages?" is great. I think the argument also carries over to Go because Go's type system is so much simpler than that of other statically typed languages.
answer @nuttycom - Gist is a simple way to share snippets of text and code with others.

"My son briefly had a youth baseball coach whose way of inspiring his demoralized players was to stand at the dugout entrance screaming at them to have fun. “Tomorrowland,” Brad Bird’s energetic new film, a shiny live-action spectacle from Disney, reminds me of that guy. There is nothing casual or whimsical about this movie’s celebration of imagination, optimism and joy. On the contrary: It’s a determined and didactic argument in favor of all those things, and an angry indictment of everyone who opposes them."

A.O. Scott for the New York Times.

Evoland II trailer! An adventure through the history of video games, now with multiple genres. Now taking preorders. http://www.evoland2.com/

Evoland started as a Ludum Dare entry, then was expanded to a full game that really sold the concept of a game that "evolves" through gradually expanded capabilities. Worth $10 if you haven't tried it. It's a bit on the easy side but difficulty is not so much the point with this one. http://evoland.shirogames.com/

This xkcd comic reminded me of a Larry Niven short story that I'm pleased to see is officially online, "Cloak of Anarchy."

"If the only options are to be amazing or terrible, it leads people to believe they must be passionate about their career, that they must think about programming every waking moment of their life. If they take their eye off the ball even for a minute, they will slide right from amazing to terrible again. That leads people to be working crazy hours at work, to be constantly studying programming topics on their own time, and so on."
Why the myth of the "10X" programmer is so destructive.

A new gem of the Seattle downtown area, in the International District. Pinball machines from across history, up to present day, all in very good condition. Some great titles, including Tales of the Arabian Nights, Revenge From Mars, and X-Men. Very fun to play the old electro-mechanical machines, and see some solid-state machines open for repair and display. Unlimited play for $10 adults, $7 kids. Also Pac-Man, Galaga, and a snack bar. The owners are friendly and knowledgeable. I can't wait to go back!
