Eh?
Senior U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead of apparent natural causes Saturday on a luxury resort in West Texas, federal officials said.

From the "Duh" department: to really make finding places to live easier for low-income residents, build tons of market housing (so mid-income people don't compete over the same slim stock).

But then San Francisco of course won't do it, because building housing somehow ruins the city's charm (and $3500 a month rent) :P
Limiting luxury housing is a terrible way to help the poor.

Photo-report on how OK Go was filming that video :D
(Title: what happens when you send flight attendant into weightlessness) 
Every day they were getting up at 6:30, breakfast at 7:30, first flight at 10:00, second at 13:00. About 20 flights, each resulting in 10-15 video fragments 20-25 seconds each.

The council-woman who pushed through bill to kill off Uber and Lyft in Austin got a recall drive. Other council members are now worried that "something is going on". Yeah, for once when they passed unpopular resolution there's a hint of being kicked out of the office, oh horrors! 
It's one of the older, more established neighborhoods in town, but there's something brewing in Austin's 5th district.Blake Mitchell says it caught him by surprise and that he found it odd.Recently a group called Austin4All collected signatures to recall c

+Judd Rogers Well, if city is going to that length, why not do fingerprint check on everyone who does delivery, period? That weird person who delivers chinese food is on the road just like uber driver (transportation aspect!), and if we're talking "safety" one can't possibly omit people who come to your house and interact with you on the door step. 

Optional badge is fine, but I bet majority of the riders won't care at all. Heck, I'm interested in why city wants to get that Uber tax at all (aside from general Austin demanding money from everyone).

As for "talking it over" -- I'm pretty sure this would result in council complaining about Uber/Lyft "sending people" to talk them out of regulation (just like they're bitching about this whole petition thing).

Well, that didn't last long. Back to recognizing other state's gun permits. 
Governor Terry McAuliffe announces a bipartisan compromise with state legislators that gun-control advocates abhor.

Bwa-ha-ha. Nobody could possibly want to be in 1970, so iPhone and iPad will preventatively die if you set the date to Jan 1st 1970 :)
Date bug will prevent 64-bit iOS devices from booting up, rendering them inoperable even through fail-safe restore methods using iTunes

IKEA has a very strange understanding of how being grown-up works :) Or maybe it's preparing for zombie apocalypse?

While +Shodan were being asses in doing auto-scan of NTP client IPv6 addresses, did people really think that obscurity of IPv6 address would help them fly under a radar? I mean yes, if they are in vacuum and not connect to anything but then why do you even need publicly accessible IPv6?
Shodan caught using time-keeping servers to quietly harvest IP addresses.

In Austin registering to vote is now easier than ever. Just text :)

Introduction
Just your average front-end programmer. Java, HTML/CSS, Javascript, FreeMarker, jQuery, things like that. In addition to English I speak fluent Russian (duh, after living in Russia for so many years, I couldn't forget it even if I wanted to. Also means awkward phrases and "lost in translation" moments from time to time, seldom though that is).

I've been working in web industry for quite a while, helping improve UX experience, working on i18n, and trying to help bridge the divide between designers and engineers. Sometimes I succeed (hurray!) Sometimes I fail (boo!) but I always try to apply logic and common sense.

I've used to prepare news reports for a local radio station, so I still post and re-post all sorts of news links.
