Pure marketing genius.
 
Smitten with +tonx's Better Coffee Exchange program — totally genius! Say you got some Starbucks gift cards during the holidays, but were really hoping for some high quality coffee instead — now you can turn the value of your cards into +tonx credit! Sign up here: tonx.org/u/getcoffee

Very interested by this notion of Open Salaries: http://open.bufferapp.com/introducing-open-salaries-at-buffer-including-our-transparent-formula-and-all-individual-salaries/

Not quite sure how it would work out for recruiting, but if it helps you get the people you need at a price that's fair for everybody, I love it!

Very very interesting. I want one--I've always wanted to improve my posture. But iOS only won't work for me. I'll have to wait for 2nd gen or better to see how these go.
 
New from Lumo: Lumo Lift is a smaller and more discrete tracker for your posture.

Pre-order for $69 for a limited time! http://www.lumobodytech.com/

On the programming language (M#?) behind the Midori project:

>"We're like Rust in that we want to maximize safety and performance, and we're willing to add fancy type system features to get there," Bromfield said. "We're like Go in that we want to be simple and approachable, in much the same way that .Net attempted to simplify programming. We're like D in that we want the language to feel very familiar to devs using an existing language (C# for us, C++ for them) -- just better."

Cool dude. He's perfectly irritating (not too much, not too little).
