I put together a list of some of the best "Learn How to Use git" resources I've come across...
If you're working on code, whether you're doing it on your own or collaboratively, you really want to be using a version control/source code management system, and the one most widely used these days is Linus Torvalds' program git. Git can be a little difficult to get your head around, ...

A bronze bull head fountain is suddenly transformed into a minotaur. A decrepit corner of an alley becomes a holding pen for ostriches. If any of these odd happenings sound familiar to you, you’re probably living in Paris and have just witnessed the work of French artist Char

Story
Tagline
Live in The Future! It's starting Now!
Introduction
I'm a partner in twostones/Acme Dot Company, a design strategy atelier based in Santa Cruz, as well as Benevolent Despot for Life of Evil Geniuses for a Better Tomorrow. People say I'm arrogant, but what do they know? Je parles le français (comme quelque espèce de vache espagnole, peut-être...); 日本語を下手に話せます。

My professional activities are multidisciplinary, including web design and development, iOS development, brand development and social media, as well content production (text and multimedia), video editing, motion graphics, and a variety of other things. I also have expertise in copyright, patent, trademark and other IP areas, specializing in open source compliance assessment and remediation.

I do photography and videography, have seen more horror movies than you have, attempt to improve my Japanese, make occasional stabs at cooking rāmen, love to travel, explore new subway systems whenever possible, and have a wide circle of friends, most of whom don't live within a thousand miles of me.

My "Shared Interest" Circles: ask to join for postings on these subjects:

• Computer Vision
• Horror Movies
• iOS Development
• Japanese (language/culture)
• Videography/Photography
• Web Design/Development
