Scalia (unit)

The SI unit of having the worst week ever of your life when it feels like you just can't win and you realize you're a sad old man yelling at cloud and even the cloud don't give a damn no more.

As true today as it was then.
 
It is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the negro poor has worsened over the last twelve or fifteen years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice and humanity.

MLK, 1968.  Not today, 1968.

"Sprint is agreeing to pay $15.5 million to settle a lawsuit brought by the Obama administration that accuses the Overland Park, Kansas carrier of overcharging the government for wiretapping its customers" and my advice to all y'all handsome snowflakes is to continue treating your "private" phone calls to be all like...

I’d like to see a culture change, and I think it starts with our current generation of programmers. We need to make it okay to say, “I just want to be a programmer.” Right now, the only option is to ‘graduate’ from programming because failure to do so is widely construed as failure to advance in your career. If you become a line manager (or the diet version, project manager), you stop writing code and become the boss. If you become an architect, you kinda-sort-usually-mostly stop writing code and kinda-sort-sometimes-maybe become sorta like a boss. But however you slice it, organizational power and writing code have historically been mutually exclusive. You can play around with teh codez early in your career, but sooner or later, you have to grow up, take your hands off the keyboard, and become a boss. You have to graduate or risk being the metaphorical ‘drop-out’ with the title “Super Principal Fellow Engineer,” who looks great on paper but is generally ignored or smiled at indulgently.
If you're a programmer, think back for a moment to the first time you hear the career question. You know the one I mean, even if you don't recognize it as the question: “do you see yourself on the architect track or the management track?” Caught off guard, you panic momentarily as you feel that ...

Someone who gets it. Finally.
 
Some users are surprised at how differently designed Evernote for Android is from Evernote for iOS. Why are they so different?

TP: If we were steadfast about making them consistent, the only way we’d be able to achieve that consistency is through mediocrity. To make the experience identical is to forego the unique qualities of each platform.

AGF: The fact that Evernote embraces this philosophy is what allows our apps to feel like they were purpose built for the platform, on every platform, which we think improves usability. This is part of what makes being a designer at Evernote feel like we are constantly innovating platform-specific design. This update was no different, resulting in what we feel is a very modern Android app.

Of course, Dunkin' Donuts are pretty delicious and have a variety of flavors. Unfortunately, their iced coffee leaves a lot to be desired. While it is less expensive than at Starbucks, it has nowhere near the same amount of taste. Stick to the donuts, Dunkin'.
