Let's see ... I have a dog (but not a Poodle), and a musical instrument (but not a flute) ... now all I need is quiet.

Generative post by Ed on what knowledge and skills are needed to build usable and robust software for distributed systems and data. Given that today's systems are rickety (his term is "house of cards"), and that almost everyone will need to program at some level, the future has a lot going for it.

A surprisingly effective overview of the Advanced Encryption Standard, rendered as a stick-figure cartoon. The material gets progressively more advanced through the cartoon, so you may not be interested in making it all the way through. And yet, no matter where you stop, you'll probably learn something interesting! If you make it all the way through, the author has committed some heavily annotated source code implementing AES to GitHub.

It does not surprise me that we do not have many histories of technology. It would be good to have more.

I have brought my cars to Newman's Automotive for more than three years. They have been honest about required repairs and maintenance, helpful on evaluating what's needed and what can be done later, and creative on fixing little problems (gas filler flap, glove box alignment, etc.). They stand behind their work. And they are friendly to boot. I recommend them to my friends and neighbors.
