Best summary ever.
Even if you’re only a casual internet user, chances are that by now you’ve probably heard something about the movement known as Gamergate. If you’re unfamiliar with what Gamergate is, we’ve taken the liberty of writing up a brief summary of the movement and its goals, which we will immediately ch...

Somehow disappointed that this technique doesn't work in newer games, either. What's up with that, +Dan Sandler ?
 
Today I showed my five-year-old Flappy Bird, mostly for cultural literacy.

His first instinct: Fly over the first pipe, off the top of the screen.

The Force is strong with this one.

Microsoft CEO's advice at the Grace Hopper conference on women asking for a raise:

"It’s not really about asking for the raise, but knowing and having faith that the system will actually give you the right raises as you go along."

"That's good karma. It will come back," Nadella said. "That's the kind of person that I want to trust, that I want to give more responsibility to."

I can't facepalm hard enough. 
You would think women in the tech industry, with its wide gender gap and considerable pay gap, would be skeptical of businesses being perfect meritocracies. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, in...

Dear Seattle Waze users:

It is fall. In Seattle. You do not need to report rain in the app, because we all know.

Perhaps if Waze adds a "report sun" feature that would be useful here at this time of year.

Congrats to the Gmail team on the Inbox launch. It's really nice.
 
Today, we’re introducing something new. It’s called Inbox. Years in the making, Inbox is by the same people who brought you Gmail, but it’s not Gmail: it’s a completely different type of inbox, designed to focus on what really matters. 

 Inbox is a new product from the Gmail team. Come try it with us.

It's great when a bug you had to close before as "cannot reproduce" happens again and you can see what's causing it this time.

Except when the bug was titled "Sometimes when someone takes a shower upstairs, water comes pouring out through the light over the kitchen sink downstairs."

+Mike Dodd you should be very thankful that it goes straight to the sink. I'd definitely say it's a feature, but of the sink. 😀

The pizza is delicious. And a growing assortment of beers on tap makes it even better.

This place was great. They had a wide variety of beers on tap, and the bartender was happy to let me taste various brews before I ordered. Everything I tried was excellent. The pizza was outstanding -- fresh ingredients, and delicious. If I'm ever in the area again I'm definitely going to come back here. It's a small space, but for sure worth a visit.
