WARNING: wild extrapolation (a classification system for science news)
Science news and articles are becoming increasingly popular, but with so much being written about so many things, it can be confusing for the beginner science enthusiast to grasp what they’re reading and how to interpret it. A simple classification system could help remedy this

Eight of the top 10 CS departments in the U.S., and ~62% of the top 40, teach Python in introductory courses.

Thought for the day.
 
Did you know that Taxi Cab companies are trying to end Taxi Neutrality? They are saying that restaurants and bars are freeloaders profiting on their infrastructure, and they plan to drive customers to restaurants at 5mph unless that particular restaurant purchases a high speed customer transportation service from them. And that's in addition to the normal cab fare you already pay.

In addition, straw manufacturers are trying to end Straw Neutrality, arguing that juice bars are freeloading on their product, and want juice bars to pay them for a premium beverage suction plan for transporting lemonade from the glass to the customer's mouth.

Airlines also want to end air travel neutrality, arguing that touristic destinations and hotels are freeloading on their routes, and want hotels and vacation destinations to pay them to fly customers there. And that's in addition to the air fare you already pay, of course.

Do any of those sound absurd? Well, that's because they are all totally made up. I just invented them. But something very similar is happening on the Internet, and this one is true: internet providers are trying to end Net Neutrality using the exact same logic: web services will have to pay them to be able to provide a service to you. And that's in addition to the normal price you already pay for internet access.

I can never remember the syntax for writing decorators. I always have to look it up. Worse, I always have to remember where to look to find references. Hence the reason for this article. I'll never lose this reference: It's on my laptop and the internet. Each type will include a basic version, ...

Most good programmers do programming not because they expect to get paid or get adulation by the public, but because it is fun to program.

This is a worth while endeavor. There aren't too many people that I trust other than Laurence Lessig to head this up. I'm glad he's taking this on.

Small business shouldn't have to pay more to each of our ISP's to provide us with services.  They could have save some money and hire an extra developer.

Please keep the net neutrality decisions out of the hands of congress.  Railing against the FCC on this issue is causing change.

The Federal Communications Commission voted to invite comment on a plan that is meant to prevent data from being slowed by Internet providers, but would allow content providers to pay for a guaranteed fast lane of service.
