Got my first user-visible contribution to the Go standard library accepted. So if you need to run a TLS enabled Go program under systemd this now allows you to use socket activation without any ugly hacks.

Had the opportunity to test drive a unu electric scooter today. It was completely silent and yet acceleration was really nice 🛵🚀 I'm not sure whether a scooter is the right mode of transportation for me but one thing is clear, if I'll ever get one it will be electric⚡

Great documentary on an international coding challenge for girls in high school. It focuses on apps that bring positive change to their communities. Really inspiring. Sadly it's only available on YouTube until today so go watch it while you can!

This is huge! With every major browser vendor on board and the combined experience from PNaCl, asm.js and emscripten this could really change the web as a platform. I wonder though what they will do to accommodate garbage collection which wasn't really needed for asm.js but would be great to support the likes of C#, Java and Go on a truly polyglot bytecode just as LLVM is getting support for garbage collection specific intrinsics.

Congratulations go to ESA, this is truly amazing! Great engineering indeed. I'm definitely looking forward to new data from the surface of a comet :)

Never had failure looked this awesome. You can just feel how difficult this is and why everyone thought it impossible, yet they're sooo close it feels just a tiny bit of tuning away.

An autonomous barge is sailing to a destination 200 km off the Florida coast to serve as the landing pad for a rockets first stage that will be returning from near space after boosting a space freighter on it's way to a manned space station. Even with less than a 0.5 success probability the fact this is even attempted blows my mind. We are indeed living the future of science fiction.
