CBC remembers the brewery strike of 1985, where Canadians had to survive 7 miserable months without Carling-O'Keefe, Labatt and Molson beers. Let's hope a rise in imported and craft beer will ensure we never have to endure this tragedy again.

Beer drinkers were in a tough spot thirty years ago this month as a strike involving all of the local breweries dragged on.

Understanding the "this" keyword in JavaScript, by +Todd Motto 

His key points are:
[*] The this keyword's value has nothing to do with the function itself, how the function is called determines the this value
[*] It can be dynamic, based on how the function is called
[*] You can change the this context through .call(), .apply() and .bind()

Molson Canadian's beer fridge project makes it to Indoneisa! I know it's #ViralMarketing, but I can't help but feel a bit patriotic... and thirsty.

Carlsberg gives away free beer with their self-described "best poster in the world" Installed in East London (UK), their blatant attempt at viral marketing provides the free Danish pilsner to anyone in the queue. Well played, Carlsberg, well played.... Now that's advertising that works!

Canada's Anti-Spam Legislation went into effect yesterday. My inbox is feeling strangely empty today thanks to my lack of opt-in on all those junk newsletters I used to receive.

I hadn’t even taken into account the lawyer fees for many organizations for the wording of the message going out. Wow, with that added onto the impact, it takes it to a completely new level.

Strahil Velchev (aka KiNK) of Bulgeria demonstrates an amazing live improvised controllerism routine. It serves as great example of implementing pretty straightforward techniques to perform live beats and sounds over top of his new track “Source Of Uncertainty.”

Nirvana feat. Lorde - All Apologies

If you ignore the fact that this was released 3 years before she was born, Lorde does a good job performing in front of the surviving members of Nirvana. Also on stage were Joan Jett, St. Vincent, Kim Gordon, and Krist Novoselic on accordion.

Lou Kosak of +Airbnb posted a great article explaining how he helped write the tests for their #RubyOnRails  application, and help establish a new testing culture in the company.

Check out the comments for some further discussion. Apparently AirBnb runs on a large suite of acceptance tests using Rspec & capybara. They also perform a JavaScript tests with Mocha and PhantomJS.

When I was considering an offer from Airbnb early last year, one of the things I made sure to ask about was testing. At my last startup I’d worked hard to cultivate a culture of testing; my team took pains to make sure that everything we shipped had a full test suite, and we often …

Another year, another bunch of concerts! This year I caught a lot of bands I've seen at least once before: Soundgarden, Deftones, Muse, Nine Inch Nails, Bjork, Beck, etc. But it was some of the new acts that really stood out. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis were promoted to a right-before-the-headliner spot at Osheaga and really blew the crowd away. The Pack A.D. had a very captivating rock-star stage presence for only two-people.  *How To Destroy Angels* (and Nine Inch Nails) had some of the more technical stage presences I've seen in a while.
