Inspiring story. Particularly liked the ending note (which I won't spoil here)

15hr work weeks... Why We Work So Much - http://one.npr.org/i/426029353:426029430
The world economy is more productive than ever before. A lot of people could work fewer hours and still meet their basic needs. But we don't. Why?

tl;dr transcript here: http://www.npr.org/sections/money/2015/07/24/426017148/episode-641-why-we-work-so-much

Huh... I think that's just a web-developer fail, because they have the transcript on their canonical page for this episode, but they don't offer a link to said page from the fancy UI that my link seems to have generated: http://www.npr.org/sections/money/2015/07/24/426017148/episode-641-why-we-work-so-much

about a guy who has literally lived in the first class cabin for the last year.
Last year, a young man walked into the Seattle airport and took the next flight to anywhere — and he hasn't come down since

haha, brilliant: When a user submits a comment, echochamber.js will save the comment to the user's LocalStorage, so when they return to the page, they can be confident that their voice is being heard, and feel engaged with your very engaging content.

First time I've ever really appreciated the magic of hard links: http://www.mikerubel.org/computers/rsync_snapshots/

Specifically, this explanation (and its implication, enabling painless snapshots):
"What happens if you `rm` [a hard linked file]? The answer is that `rm` [...] removes that one link to it. A file's contents aren't truly removed until the number of links to it reaches zero."
How to make easy, automated snapshot-style backups with rsync and UNIX

I've done something along these lines before. One issue I encountered was its hard to manage disk space as you don't know how much space you're actually going to recover by deleting an old backup (potentially none at all). I imagine it'd be straightforward to hack du to only report exlcusive space used, but it'd get tricky to measure space used by two backups.

Growing up in Monmouth County, NJ, we learned about "Molly Pitcher" in elementary school. Apparently she's really a composite image of many badass women from the Revolutionary War.

Living in Inwood, NY and reading about the history of this area, I've found that a certain Margaret Corbin was one such woman. Corbin became famous during the Battle of Fort Washington where she fired a canon until she was shot three times and had to surrender.
