+Kelly Morriss the manual solution would be to create a 'note' inside LP and store that apps' log-in details. Then open LP, and then that 'note' and plug in the details into the app to open. Not fun, but still more secure than opting for a short or easily cracked log-in.

Happy birthday, World Wide Web.

Berners-Lee: "Key decisions on the governance and future of the Internet are looming, and it’s vital for all of us to speak up for the web’s future. How can we ensure that the other 60 percent around the world who are not connected get online fast? How can we make sure that the web supports all languages and cultures, not just the dominant ones? How do we build consensus around open standards to link the coming Internet of Things? Will we allow others to package and restrict our online experience, or will we protect the magic of the open web and the power it gives us to say, discover, and create anything? How can we build systems of checks and balances to hold the groups that can spy on the net accountable to the public?"

Stealing this for every time I get a question about features in the software I build:

Broadly, "why doesn't Chrome do [x]" can almost always be answered by "because [y] and [z] were considered more important and we don't have time to do everything".

Don't fool yourself. You're certainly not fooling anybody else. You won't donate toward the cause because you're cheap, and you're poo-pooing it publically because you're an ass.

All the feels indeed. 
 
Last <In Beta> with +Gina Trapani posted

As they say on the web these days: all the feels.

Gina & I took questions from listeners for the bulk of our show, but also reflected a bit on what made our 76-episode run work, how we planned episodes, and a bit on the future. I'll be doing a few more episodes during December, and then you can expect to see some new, energized, equally nerdy and entertaining hosts on this feed very soon.

In the meantime, here's the longest In Beta we've recorded (1:15:00). Enjoy. It was really hard to hang up.
