"As people who were once just users become producers, they’re re-shaping the culture of open source. GitHub, I believe, is doing to open source what the internet did to the publishing industry: It’s creating a culture gap between the previous, big-project generation of open source and a newer, more amateurized generation of open source today."

Love this man

"What is the most astounding face you can share with us about the Universe?"

The most astounding fact is the knowledge that the atoms that comprise life on earth, the atoms that make up the human body, are traceable to the crucibles that cooked light elements into heavy elements in their core under extreme temperatures and pressures. 

These star, the high mass ones among them, went unstable in their later years. They collapsed and then exploded scattering their enriched guts across the galaxy; Guts made of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and all the fundamental ingredients of life itself.

These ingredients become part of gas clouds that condense, collapse, form the next generation of solar systems. Stars with orbiting planets. And those planets now have the ingredients for life itself. 

So that when I look up at the night sky, and I know that, yes, we are part of this universe, we are in this universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the universe is in us. When I reflect on that fact, I look up -- many people feel small, because they're small and the universe is big -- but I feel big. Because my atoms came from those stars. 

There's a level of connectivity. That's really what you want in life. You want to fell connected. You want to feel relevant. You want to feel like you're a participant in the goings on of activities and events around you. That's precisely what we are by being alive.

And let me be the first to say: you don't look a day over 11101.

Retailers really don't want me to ever step foot in a physical store again, do they?
