Prrrrrrrfect
 
When my cats are about to walk over my keyboard and I want to protect my shell against any commands they might type, I type "cat<ENTER>". That way their feline keystrokes just echo back. Never has a command been more aptly named!

I wonder if this will still be relevant when my unborn son is old enough to play. I did plant the seed by getting him a creeper plush doll he'll grow up with ;)

1 minute Getting Started with Neo4j Graph Database
Made this short video where download Neo4j, install it and head over to the query browser in 1 minute and 3 seconds.  I spend another minute and a half showing some quick demos on the power of the graph with Kevin Bacon.  Enjoy!

P.S. For those that follow me on twitter, I'm sorry that this is delayed on G+. I'm sure more of you will be interested here though ;-)

:-(

I've witnessed other versions of this type of activity directed against amazing women engineers.  Always makes me think WTF.

Thanks for sharing +Julia Ferraioli, but really sad this had to happen to you.
 
Do you even...?

Sexism and *ist behavior in technology is rampant. Here's an example that +Amy Unruh and myself experienced recently, why you should care, and what you can do to help.
