Knowledge of the HTTP 1.1 spec is a prerequisite to watching the Veronica Mars movie.

I did some digging into a (slightly) faster UIWebView-to-native communication mechanism

Updated the post to show what numbers would be if Apple exposed an official direct communication mechanism (8-10x faster). Perhaps for iOS 8.

Finally got a chance to write down a few thoughts about going from Google to Quip (and from working on the platform to building apps on that platform).

Your story really resonates with me. The desire to do whatever it takes to ship something that real users will appreciate is why I moved on from Google as well.

(I left an earlier comment that seemed witty when I wrote it, but seemed likely to be misinterpreted. disregard.)

Now you can actually do something with the archived Reader data you got last week.

+Mihai Parparita I've checked: I have a main.html file and zombie_reader.py includes os.path.join('zombie_reader', 'templates').

A side project that I've been working on for getting ALL your data out of Reader (including every read item). See http://blog.persistent.info/2013/06/getting-all-your-data-out-of-google.html for more details

Thank-you so much. There is so much data that I have in Google Reader that I would like to keep. A while ago my web server host had a "catastrophic hard drive failure" and lost several years of blog postings. Luckily it was saved in Reader but now that reader is gone, so are the posts.

In which I start by trying to find mislabeled spam messages and end up spelunking through Gmail's system labels.
