Beautiful!
Off into Space! This long exposure photograph shows the flight path of the Soyuz TMA-12M rocket as it launches from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan yesterday. The rocket carried Expedition 39 Soyuz Commander Alexander Skvortsov of the Russian Federal Space Agency, Roscosmos, Flight Engineer Steven Swanson of NASA, and Flight Engineer Oleg Artemyev of Roscosmos to the International Space Station.

The next trio of crew members destined for the station is now looking forward to a Thursday arrival at the orbiting laboratory after their Soyuz spacecraft was unable to complete its third thruster burn to fine-tune its approach. Flight controllers in the Mission Control Center outside Moscow are now reverting to a backup 34-orbit rendezvous, which would result in an arrival and docking at 7:58 p.m. EDT Thursday, March 27.

We just updated our Transparency Report, showing how many requests Google gets for information about its users. But we're not allowed to give the full story because the U.S. government says that requests under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) must be kept secret. We can tell you this: Requests have more than doubled around the world since 2009, and more than tripled in the U.S.: http://g.co/u5sp

Share this if you believe you have a right to know what our governments are up to.

Upset about the NSA and Verizon? Might be a good time to put your money where your mouth is.

Another absolutely solid TED talk. Play along, it's worth it!

Also -- this is the reason I absolutely can't wait to introduce my coming child to Minecraft or Lego Star Wars!

Sometimes I wonder if there's somebody else in the world using the same passwords that I do for websites. Given the number of passwords that people use, statistically the odds look good. But then you think about how many of them are just "password," and it's not quite a sure thing.

Ever since I started using Vico (http://www.vicoapp.com/) as my primary text editor, I've gotten really good with the vi keybindings. Was very pleased to find out about Vimium, a Chrome plugin which adds vi bindings to Chrome! Makes web development work really nicely.

So Germany just started publishing all of it's legislation in markdown format under Git version control. They're even accepting pull requests for proposed changes to the laws.

Imagine the possibilities! We really need to make this happen in the US. AMAZING.
