Want to learn to make a website? Visit the library in Louisville where your library card is all you need to sign up for classes in technology training. This is a great use of library resources, and it shows a surprising amount of awareness of the changing workforce needs for a state so rooted in old-school manufacturing.
After going public last week, 's stock rose more than 50% to make them the largest Social Good Corporation (B-Corp) in the country. Can they sustain growth after hitting the open market though? What do you think?
I just heard about this trend over the weekend. Apparently meatheads and more understandably women who can't produce their own breastmilk are buying black market milk on places like Craigslist. Unsurprisingly, as much as 10% of the samples purchased are mixed with cow's milk.
Is it just me or does feeding your baby something you bought on the internet from a stranger seem crazy?
Scott Adams is a really interesting dude, and after stumbling on his blog a few months ago, I decided to check out his book How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big.
It's part self-help and part anecdotal advice for people who want to be successful but are still looking for a formula to do so. Check out my whole review below, and if you've read it, let me know what you think.
Most employees now think it's normal to hold a position for two or fewer years before looking for work. I've noticed this a lot in the tech sector where movements are very common and competition for the best talent very high.
I think it's okay though. Employer loyalty is a thing of the past.
For the past few months I've been investigating job board APIs. The problem is that even though they all let you get access to roughly the same data, they're all different in how you request that data and what form their responses take. If you've ever worked with multiple job search API's, you know what I mean.

I studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Tennessee (c/o 2012), but after two years of internships with some of the biggest firms in the world, I realized that startups were way more fun. I founded a web-development company (+Shakeup Media) and started a news blog on my college campus.
I love meeting people, writing (in both code and prose), playing guitar, traveling, and cooking. While I enjoy my work and the flexibility it provides, I also do a lot of geeky things on the side. Lately, it's been playing with my Raspberry Pi and learning Python.
