Almost slipped on the ice cleaning the pool this morning.

Brace yourselves people: we're hiring not one -- but two! -- engineers for Storybird. Let me know if you're interested. Storybird is growing and doing well. Great people to work with, if I do say so myself. And it's a product that is well-loved and life-changing for a lot of kids and adults.

We're hiring a Python Product Engineer at Storybird. Let me know if you want to talk more or are interested in the gig. It's telecommute, a very cool, artsy, and quickly growing startup.

I dig the new G+ design. Feels like social is actually the intent finally, rather than just a semi-private hangout space for the cool kids. ;)

Juju is what...? :)

Everyone loves a superhero coder until they get hit by falling debris. Those comicbook coding battles are messy.

Been working outside lately. So nice here in Alabama. And it's only bound to last another couple weeks.

Started learning #golang, other stuff came up, never got productive with it. Looking again, and liking the "How to write Go code" doc. That doc fits how my brain wants to think about code when learning a new language. http://golang.org/doc/code.html

I asked this on twitter but there's more space to write and more geeks whose opinion I value here at G+ so I'll ask in long form....

Why is Google held up as soooo much better than Apple in terms of iOS v Android?  I'm asking seriously and not intending to troll.  It's just that Android is hardly a model F/OSS citizen.  Is it the hardware freedom that people enjoy, or the slightly more free software?  And if it's hardware, what value is that if the OS isn't really completely free?  If I have to root the phone to get what OS I want on there, doesn't that negate some of these arguments?  If your comparing software freedom, it just seems Apple and Android aren't so far apart to me.

Full disclosure, I own and use both and don't really have a dog in the fight, as we'd say here in Alabama. It just seems to me there is some disconnect in some of the arguments just because people want to be harsher on Apple and have a softer eye on Google, and I wonder if there's more to or I'm missing something larger.
