Woah. I just started casting something, but my TV was still on TV mode instead of Chromecast mode. I picked up the remote to switch the input to the HDMI port the Chromecast is in, but before I could press anything it switched automatically. I didn't know it could do that!

Yeah, I thought it was supposed to do that, but doesn't seem to work here.

So amazing how they can create such fluid-like movements with such blocky things! Just saw the Legos movie and was equally enthralled.

Closure Compiler v20140625 released!
https://github.com/google/closure-compiler/wiki/Releases

Changes:
 - Variables in externs are copied to the "window" object. This means that properties can be accessed as "window.foo" even if they're only declared in the externs as "var foo;"
 - Added support for goog.module() which helps the transition to ES6 modules.
 - Added support for (non labs-prefixed) goog.defineClass which helps the transition to ES6 classes.
 - Added @package access control mode which means the given variable can be accessed from within the same package (like package-private in Java). Thanks to 20% contributor Brendan Linn.
 - Several fixes to make the compiler work with node.js code, mostly from Nick Santos.
 - Turn on the InferConst pass, which allows the compiler to do more typechecking and inlining.
 - Flatten module type expressions during module-preprocess.
 - Added --source_map_location_mapping flag. Thanks Terence Honles!
 - Added --output_wrapper_file flag. Thanks Si Robertson!
 - Enable GatherExternsFromTypes pass for better handling of typedefs in externs.
 - Removed the old Rhino JS parser, since we are now fully switched over to the new ES6 parser.
 - Lots of work on transpiling ES6 to ES3, as well as running some checks directly on ES6 code. Big thanks to our interns, Matt Loring and Michael Zhou for pushing this work forward.
 - Lots of work on the new type inference system (not enabled by default yet)
 - Fixed Github issues: #110, #431, #432, #435, #439, #477

rather than increasing the number of kids who can crank out thousands of lines of JavaScript, we first need to boost the number who understand what code can do. As the cities that have hosted Code for America teams will tell you, the greatest contribution the young programmers bring isn't the software they write. It's the way they think. It's a principle called "computational thinking," and knowing all of the Java syntax in the world won't help if you can't think of good ways to apply it.

Unfortunately, the way computer science is currently taught in high school tends to throw students into the programming deep end, reinforcing the notion that code is just for coders, not artists or doctors or librarians.

I used to get in this argument with my MS CS ex. She claimed coding was a science. I said "Nope, it's an art."
Why America's schools need to train a generation of hackers.

Kudos to the EFF for writing about this. This topic is so controversial, it would be easier for them to just not talk about it, or issue a brief meaningless statement about this which no one would notice.

I'm curious how a company denying contraception to its employees actually works in practice. My employer doesn't provide medical care to me directly -- they provide me with medical insurance which I then use to pay for doctors visits and medicines and such. So if an employer doesn't want to provide its employees with contraception, what do they do exactly? Do they just give them an insurance plan doesn't include those things? Does that mean insurance companies have plans specifically designed to exclude certain things, so they can sell them to obnoxious-religious-person-owned businesses?

I thought most of these companies were based in places where your local pharmacy can refuse to provide contraception, so it's mostly a noop.

Just got this email:

"I thought you might like to know we added Google+ login to Sticker Mule. You can upgrade your Sticker Mule to login with your Google+ / Gmail account by signing up via Google+ using the email address this message was sent to."

Technically they're right. I might like to know. As it happens, I do not know what Sticker Mule is and I do not care. I guess I'd rather log into things with a G+ account then a Facebook account though, so... good news sort of?

Really liked the Egyptian Burrito here. Yesterday I tried the BBQ Chicken pizza. The idea of pizza on pita bread sounded interesting but was really just kind of awkward. So, stick to the burrito.
