Why I hate Google ads: To find out what happened to a friend who got hit by a car, I'm expected to answer a survey question about how often I plan family meals, while I'm also getting subjected to an auto-play video commercial.

There are some sites and services I just can't use anymore. Not won't, CAN'T. Yahoo for example. FB, sure. But Google?

Hackathons are well-known as events where developers come together to quickly turn out a piece of software, often competing against each other. But what if they were also a place for learning?

Fortunately, I'm not trying to be "manly". Phew.
Originally published between 1858 and 1860, Whitman's “Manly Health and Training” is, in some respects, a 19th century equivalent of Men's Health magazine.

Awwww, a shout out from Bryan:
 
Yeah.  I included myself.  Because vanity.  :)

Seriously.  All the people in here are worth following if you're into Linux and Open Source.

[And before people complain: Yes.  It's a slide-show.  But it doesn't load a new page for each slide.  So it's not so bad.]
If you're a Linux geek, you need to follow these 12 people. These are not companies or projects, but actual people, speaking for themselves, who are uniquely relevant in the Linux world.

M-Lab is the largest open Internet data project powered by crowdsourcing measurements of people's Internet connections from around the world.
