I made a base64 encoder/decoder that loads and paints really fast--faster than google.com. It's fully painted before base64encode.org can serve you jquery.min.js.

A high-profile fork: one year of Blink and Webkit
http://browserg.nom.es

I did a short writeup about the Blink fork of Webkit and how the two projects have diverged over the past year.

Blast from the dotcom past: this This American Life episode is about an Ellis Act eviction 15 years ago and sounds like it was yesterday. The story is set in the mission district before the dotcom bust and is full of references that are still associated with the neighborhood: latin american culture, gentrification, grit, beauty, and homelessness. I wish the story had more about the culture back then but it probably seemed trite (and reminds me that we should write more about our culture). 15 years brought differences as well, like Hunt's 25 hour donut shop closing (http://foundsf.org/index.php?title=The_Epicenter_of_Crime:_The_Hunt%E2%80%99s_Donuts_Story is a great writeup about it).

If you live in the area, the 15m episode is a trip.

Entertaining stories about life and biology: http://idlewords.com

I've spent 2 hours reading this blog and have enjoyed it. His writing style is quirky-fun and light. Even though I don't agree with his views on tech, I have to admit: even that is well written.

Heatmap of location data from one year in San Francisco. Alternatively, a map of the burrito and pizza restaurants in SF.

This took about an hour to wire up from takeout location data + mapsV3. If you'd like to make your own, the code is at http://pr.gg/location.html.

I did a quick presentation today on about:tracing for Chrome engineers, and you might like it too. About:tracing is like devtools on steroids. I don't yet recommend about:tracing for regular web developers (sometimes it 'roid rages) but it's a great addition to your toolbox if you want to dive into performance.

This builds on the work by Nat Duca and Tom Wiltzius in their I/O talk "Jank Free: Chrome Rendering Performance": Google I/O 2013 - Jank Free: Chrome Rendering Performance
