This is the best comic step series. There are many good ones, but C&H is the best.

About what I'd expect in an area where you're probably the only guy (one having nothing to do with the other) a 4G LTE phone, and a full set of teeth...

Three of my favorite quotes from the article (in no particular order):

"In domains that allow for incremental production, like software, [deferring irrevocable decisions to the last responsible moment and providing the infrastructure that allows this is enabled by] good modular design, standardized but flexible infrastructure (the cloud is a huge factor here), and the iterative development processes [...] which are now commonplace."

... and ...

"We will get our best organizational results if we give our employees the autonomy to do their work their way. We can do that safely if we invest in their skills so they have the mastery to do the work well."

... and ...

"Much of what you learn will be tacit. You can and should invest in tools for documenting knowledge. But ultimately, your tools will function as a backstop for the experience of your employees. Much of that experience will be spread across members of a team, so policies that retain high-quality employees and favor team stability are important tools for preserving the knowledge created through your innovation efforts."
 
This should be required reading for any organization. http://leankit.com/blog/2015/05/welcome-to-the-new-lean/
Find out what the “new lean” means and how it applies to our modern business world.

Got this for 8yo a few months ago. He has REALLY enjoyed it, and I've enjoyed the time we've shared reading it together.

Need an in-browser editable datasheet component. Any recommendations? So many to choose from.

Just not sure what to think about Chrome's spellchecker wanting to correct 'orchiectomy' to 'hysterectomy'.

Story
Introduction
Lance is a husband, father, software developer, and a perpetual learner. When he's not with his family or working, he likes to sing in the choir and occasionally play a video game. He also wonders why anyone would use the third person when authoring an introduction about themselves.
Bragging rights
I once solved a Wheel of Fortune puzzle before a single letter was shown. I know. Amazing.
