Really cool long-timelapse technique from some people I used to work next to. Uses public photos mined from the Internet, smoothing everything out to look like a timelapse video.

They're up for a National Science Foundation "Vizzies" award:

Built a sturdy stand-up workbench for the office. Way better than working on the floor. :)

Top is formica-laminated particle board. I glued an extra board to the bottom of the front edge to make it stronger, then faced it with a piece of oak that I beveled once it was on. Quick coat of polyurethane-stain mix to avoid the embarrassing "raw 2x4" look.

Screwed to the wall, added a big power strip, and immediately used the bench for some soldering. 41" tall works great!

Open-source version of Google's internal build system! v. exciting.

Maybe not be appropriate for small projects, but it does a great job dealing with the exabytes[1] of code we deal with internally.

I'd also be interested to see how well it works for cross compilation and multi-architecture setups.

[1]: obvious exaggeration

Yeeee-aah!

(I had nothing to do with this, but I'm so glad to finally have an open-source protobuf-based RPC stack. Probably some issues in v1, but it'll be great.)
Google is open sourcing gRPC, a new library focused on efficiency and innovation in data transport across all platforms.

Cute!

[...] each station is assigned a distinct sound to indicate delivery, such as chirping birds, bees buzzing, branches rustling in the wind, or dripping water. If everything is running normally, all four sounds are discretely in the background. [If] the finished product is beginning to back up at the outgoing shipping station, [...] the sound that belongs to this station becomes increasingly loud.

Turns out the people in Starbucks were not discussing early-2000's punk bands, I'm just in Olympia.
