Useful article/s concerning effective development practices and tools for the modern web developer. 
 
Nice article on Developer Tools in Webkit (Chrome and Safari).

"This blog post is the first in a series of posts that attempts to outline what a modern web development toolchain looks like and how to use the best-of-breed tools for efficient, effective development. "

Keyboard shortcuts, DOM and CSS editing, metrics, resources, and much more!

Another great work from Steven Pressfield that continues the story of how we can overcome resistance and the manifold personal demons that seek to derail our creative pursuits.

If you have never heard of Steven, you should also check out his period fiction set in the Greek-Antiquity period.

Computer Science retrospectives concerning past achievements based on the work of Turing by an incredible line-up of CS luminaries.  http://bit.ly/LiOSZY

Explore the playlist, geek-out, and take pride if, like me, you are taking part in creating the future with computing devices. If we can come this far in 50-60 years, imagine where we shall be in 20-30 years time in terms of programming languages, compute-infrastructure and the ubiquitous penetration of devices and networks.

Mind-blowing. 
 
Vint Cerf sent me this pointer to a very nice visualization of the scale of the Universe.

To all you Emacs aficionados out there, you are going to love re-builder for those times when you need to perform complex regexp replacements.

I do remember couple of times when I needed something like this: thanks for the tip! Emacs, the best Unix shell ;-)

Just registered to ride in Ride London 2013, its going to serve as great motivation for my new training schedule http://www.ridelondon.co.uk/Events/100.htm, aiming for sub-5 hour (EDIT: sub-6 hour) race time for the 100 mile event -- its going to be tough.

Measures how hard and/or strong you were pushing (relative to your max HR). More funny than useful.

Looks like the BBC are going to host a great Interactive service with catch-up and easy navigation of concurrent live events that are happening throughout the games. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/olympics/2012/live-video

I really like what Adobe is doing with the Creative Cloud http://adobe.ly/IiPdIF. It will be interesting to see how the iPad touch apps work out for sketching ideas.

In case you missed them first time around or, like me, just forgot to go back and review them, a great set of C++11 talks can be found on Channel 9 from the GoingNative 2012 conference --http://channel9.msdn.com/posts/Announcing-the-GoingNative-2012-Full-Schedule

This really is a cool infographic
 
At #io12  yesterday, we talked about how the web and +Google Chrome  have evolved. With all the amazing content on the web, most people don't see or even think about the interplay of web technologies and browsers that makes all this possible. See our interactive visualization for a glimpse at what's behind the many powerful web apps that we use daily.

Sococo Team Space: I can see how this will help distributed co-workers and partners collaborate better. Skype on steroids, and fun to boot!

Producing great products and services, with inspired teams, using agile techniques.
Introduction
I have been working with professional software engineering teams since 1995, when I graduated with a Computer Science Degree from the University of Warwick. I subsequently went on to complete a Masters Degree in Intelligent Systems (Artificial Intelligence) at Brunel University under the sponsorship of EMI Central Research Laboratories.

My career to date has given me the opportunity to work with some exciting and challenging technologies including: Neural Networks, for the extraction of meaning from large document collections; Prolog, for the scheduling of music videos; and most recently, P2P Networks, for the cooperative caching and delivery of streaming media to consumer electronics devices. 

My current interests are Cloud Computing, Machine Learning, Digital e-Learning, Ubiquitous Computing, and -- more generally -- the challenge of how people's lives can be enhanced by improved access to Online Services. 

In recent years, my focus has moved towards being a facilitator and consultant, helping build bridges between commercial stakeholders and front-line engineers. I have been fortunate to work with talent and committed engineers, in a variety of multidisciplinary teams during my career. I enjoy the interpersonal demands of modern agile methodologies. As an experienced manager I actively seek opportunities to maximise the productivity and collective happiness of team members, whilst delivering the business repeated value through regular product releases. I believe that honesty, clear written and verbal communications, and professional integrity are central to achieving these goals. 

The following is a fabulous passage by Goethe, that I feel conveys my philosophy of life and work:

"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back-- Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now." - Goethe.
