Diversity matters. [...] including the order in which we go about things, the seasons in which we are able to create art. Those who are engaged in the arts should be the last to send any other message
Age-based awards are outdated and discriminatory.

WHaaa, I was about to waste a lot of time writing a chrome extension to let me run snippets of JS without the chrome extension boiler plate required for each little snippet/experiment.

*lo and behold* "snippet" already exists in Chrome: https://developer.chrome.com/devtools/docs/authoring-development-workflow#snippets

Awesome interview with Iron & Wine where he explains the name, and talks about his new music, and touches on his last ten years of music.
Singer-songwriter Sam Beam has been releasing indie folk records under the name Iron & Wine for over a decade. With his newest release, Archive Series

So, I'm just learning NOW (with this post) that Iron and Wine is a one-man show. Great stuff. Amazing its just him.

the suppression of self-expression is impossible. Even when we do something as seemingly "uncreative" as retyping a few pages, we express ourselves in a variety of ways. The act of choosing and reframing tells us as much about ourselves as our story about our mother's cancer operation. It's just that we've never been taught to value such choices
Literature's boldest innovation, in the cut-and-paste era, is in imaginatively re-presenting others' work.

so good... "I eventually found a working CSS file inside a bottle that washed up on the beach [...]. Then I went home and cried big man tears that were filled with ninja stars and that turned into lions when they hit the ground."
 
another mickens episode, on w3c. too bad they're in pdf: Cascading Style Sheets are a cryptic language developed by the Freemasons to obscure the visual nature of reality and encourage people to depict things using ASCII art. The relationship between CSS and HTML is the same relationship that links the instructions for building your IKEA bed, and the unassembled, spiteful wooden planks that purportedly contain latent bed structures

Obama wants a public debate about encryption. Because we all know public debates by non-experts are so useful.

Let's simplify things.

You can have privacy (and so will some of the crooks).
Or you can trust the government with the keys to everything in your life.

And by "trust the government" I mean "trust that the 'good guys' won't misuse them, even though they already have", "trust that someone rogue in the government won't misuse them, even though they already have", and "trust that government security will keep the crooks (and foreign governments) from accessing them, even though they already have."

You can't have both. There's no happy compromise. There's no backdoor that can be opened only when law enforcement needs it. There's no debate to have here.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — President Barack Obama said Friday that he probably leans more toward strong computer data encryption than many in law enforcement, but added that he understands investigators’ concerns over the matter because…
