Drawing a Sierpinski triangle in D3: http://dangoldin.com/2014/02/19/sierpinski-triangle-in-d3/
There's a neat iterative algorithm to generate a Sierpinski triangle that I implemented in D3/JavaScript.

What impact will smartphones have on global literacy? http://dangoldin.com/2013/12/26/smartphones-and-literacy/
Smartphones have the potential of increasing global literacy in addition to the more obvious changes we're going to see.

Drowning in JavaScript - the way different types of sites use JS libraries: http://dangoldin.com/2013/12/01/drowning-in-javascript/
The majority of the sites I visit use a slew of JavaScript libraries. I decided to do a quick analysis and see if there are any patterns of the libraries used based on the site type.

On ebook readers and the coupling of content creation, distribution, and consumption: http://dangoldin.com/2014/01/15/ebook-readers/
I read a ton but can't find an ebook reader that I like. The problem is that the creation, distribution, and consumption of content are coupled into closed ecosystems.

Products are global but the world's infrastructure isn't: http://dangoldin.com/2013/12/25/global-products/
There are very few global tech products - those that work wherever you are in the world. A big reason is due to infrastructure differences and I don't see this changing soon.

I'm currently using Google Analytics for my blog but am going to also start using MixPanel and a bunch of meta data to track additional info.

I came across an old post that I was going to write after reading Twitter's API changes last August. Amazing what becomes obvious in hindsight.

Excel on a Mac has a completely different set of shortcuts that it makes me wonder if it was intentionablly hobbled to keep people on Windows.

Ah neat. Thanks for sending. I'm also trying to do everything in R. Some things are worse but some are better.
