Bret Victor's followup to The Web of Alexandria provides a compelling argument for thinking about multiple content media rather than just "the web"
Bret Victor / May 26, 2015. A follow-up (disambiguation? expansion?) regarding The Web of Alexandria. * * *. In The Web of Alexandria, I suggested that some very stable and reliable media, DNA and print, owe their stability and reliability to replication and retention -- every reader gets a copy ...

Attempted Yosemite install on mid-2012 MacBook Air. Looked like firmware update didn't succeed. At least my Mavericks backup still boots.

Oh no. Perhaps I'll take my wife's even older MacBook to the Apple Store and let them update it there

Great collection of tips on naming (and writing) in software in this slide deck.
Developers can get better at their craft by learning from the great writers who mastered theirs. Writing software isn’t the same as writing a novel, but there are parallels. Besides, advice from writers is better because writers have been struggling with their craft for many centuries, not just a few decades. It’s better-written as well. This talk shares great writers’ best advice for coders: Stephen King on refactoring, Anne Rice on development ...

SudoLikeABoss https://github.com/ravenac95/sudolikeaboss makes it possible to use 1Password to fill in passwords in iTerm 2. Very handy idea!

Story
Tagline
Developer on the Adobe Brackets project and founder of TurboGears, CommonJS
Introduction
Professionally, I enjoy helping people use technology and the internet to solve problems. I don't believe you can solve every problem with technology, but technology can make many problems much easier to deal with. I also like to look at the whole of a solution: product, business, tech, marketing, sales to make sure that what we're doing is actually going to connect with the right people.

I've done many different things in my career, but I'm best known as the creator of TurboGears, a software package that helps software developers make web-based applications more easily. With TurboGears and other projects, I co-wrote a book, self-published a DVD and I have presented at several conferences.

In 2012, I published the first 3 books in a children's fantasy series called 11 Quests.

After 4 years working on tools for developers for Mozilla, I joined Adobe at the end of 2012 to... work on tools for developers, specifically the Brackets project.

Beyond these pursuits, I have a great time with my daughter and wife and really enjoy the beautiful summers in Michigan.
