New interview question post is up #programming  #java #javascript
This article looks at the interview question - Find the median of two sorted arrays. For example an input of [1, 7, 8] and [2, 5, 6, 9] should result in the output 6.

Great article on issues with what Nilay said in "The Mobile web sucks" article recently.
Verging on the ridiculous.

Are you a driver who hates cyclists or a cyclist who hates drivers? Just stop being a wanker!

I'm a pedestrian who hates drivers, especially when commuting in the evening. So many people decide it's OK to run red lights when the pedestrian crossing is green.

First implementation of requestIdleCallback is in Chrome Canary!

What is it? It allows applications to cooperatively schedule background tasks such that they do not introduce delays to other high priority tasks that share the same event loop, such as input processing, animations and frame compositing. 

For more details on the API, the spec, and more examples, see:
https://w3c.github.io/requestidlecallback/

Finally, to get started:
- Boot up Chrome Canary
- Enable chrome://flags/#enable-experimental-web-platform-features
- Restart the browser
- Experiment with rIC, ..., and please provide feedback!

Google is pushing back against a request to expand the scope of Europe's "right to be forgotten" law. Last year, the European Union Court of Justice ruled that citizens of its member states could...

I am waiting for Google to be so bold and call France on their BS.

The funny thing with removing the interstitial is that users can get to the content without being reminded (too much) that the content is on Google+. I have to wonder how much of these numbers reflect interstitials directly, versus the general unpopularity of Google+?

Introduction
I make software for a living and I love it. Some topics I'm particularly interested in are making delightful user experiences, achieving great performance and creating a semantic and accessible web. I speak a little Japanese, a little Korean and a bunch of programming languages.

I work at Amazon on the Silk Browser and write about my craft on my personal blog (www.growingwiththeweb.com)
