Today we’re making the Nik Collection available to everyone, for free.

Photo enthusiasts all over the world use the Nik Collection to get the best out of their images every day. As we continue to focus our long-term investments in building incredible photo editing tools for mobile, including Google Photos and Snapseed, we’ve decided to make the Nik Collection desktop suite available for free, so that now anyone can use it.

The Nik Collection is comprised of seven desktop plug-ins that provide a powerful range of photo editing capabilities -- from filter applications that improve color correction, to retouching and creative effects, to image sharpening that brings out all the hidden details, to the ability to make adjustments to the color and tonality of images.

Starting March 24, 2016, the latest Nik Collection will be freely available to download: Analog Efex Pro, Color Efex Pro, Silver Efex Pro, Viveza, HDR Efex Pro, Sharpener Pro and Dfine. If you purchased the Nik Collection in 2016, you will receive a full refund, which we’ll automatically issue back to you in the coming days.

We’re excited to bring the powerful photo editing tools once only used by professionals to even more people now.

These are brilliant! 
Cabe's selection of 3D printed Christmas ornaments is pretty fun. If you've got a printer, send us your ornament pics! http://ow.ly/GlQU6

Programmer humour: "At its core, the language [Swift] is designed to eliminate bugs, but not in the academic way that, say, Haskell eliminates bugs by preventing normal people from writing code in it."

A useful list of dtrace utilities for the Mac. Dtrace is a cool tool created by Sun (IIRC) that integrates into the OS kernel to give all sorts of details on running processes with minimal performance hit.

Some interesting research on learning:

* Interleave related topics to make it a bit harder. You'll learn a bit at a time of each topic, but overall you'll learn more than if you studied (or practiced) a complete topic at once before moving on to the next.
* Vary your study location so that the information isn't tied to a context and becomes easier to retrieve.
* Stuff becomes easier to remember if you try to remember it more often, and wait longer periods between remembering. Ideally, you should recall something just before it becomes forgotten.

The last point reminds me of a memorization technique I had read somewhere (Covey?): Once you've studied something, study it again in a week, then a month, then four months, then a year. I've tried this and it works fairly well, though you have to be pretty diligent about marking your calendar.

Ran across this fantastic post by John Anderson about turning #vim into a great #python IDE. One clever innovation is to use #git as a way to sync your configuration between computers. While you can clone his configuration from #github , he takes you step by step through the process of setting everything up, and what each vim module does for you.

Vim is popular as a text editor and IDE because it is powerful, flexible, and probably on every Unix-like computer you run across. It has a tough learning curve (reminds me of using Wordstar with all its pre-menu commands), but once your fingers have developed the muscle memory, you'll fly through documents like a movie hacker.
