On practicing writing and art, and science, and so much more.
"The ability to forgive oneself ... is the key to making art, and very possibly the key to finding any semblance of happiness in life." "

"Memorization is a frontage road: It runs parallel to the best parts of learning, never intersecting. It’s a detour around all the action, a way of knowing without learning, of answering without understanding." 

excerpted from "When Memorization Gets in the Way of Learning"

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.

Excerpt from the obit:

' In some of the most famous words interpreting the Bill of Rights, Justice Robert H. Jackson wrote in the decision, issued on Flag Day 1943, “If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion or other matters of opinion, or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein.” ''
In 1935 Ms. Klose heeded a Jehovah’s Witnesses leader’s call to refuse to recite the pledge in compliance with biblical commands against idolatry.

An informative followup to Schneier's "trust the math" advice a few days ago. The comment stream is also useful.
Last week, I got an email from a journalist with the following inquiry. The recent Snowden revelations, which made public for the first time the US government's “black budget,” contained the following enigmatic line from the Director of National Intelligence: “We are investing in groundbreaking ...

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.
