"sue less and talk more." -- good idea!
 
You may not have heard of the OIN, but they're a big reason why you can spend your time coding rather than talking to intellectual property lawyers.
One reason why Linux weathered patent attacks and trolls to become today's dominant server and cloud operating system is because the Open Invention Network united its supporters into a strong patent consortium.

Not exactly my maiden voyage blog post, but my maiden "Catholic" post in a blog ...
In the 1980's I would have said, and probably did say, that although abortion is a repulsive procedure, it is morally permissible, and therefore should be legally permissible.  In the three decades...

Trying to script in Canvas pages is futile.

In the Canvas HTML editor, before saving:

<script>alert("Hello world");</script>

(While I would not really want to place an alert box in a
Canvas page, it would be nice to be able to embed my own
video player.)

Switching to the Rich Text Editor, then back to the HTML editor:

<p>&nbsp;</p>
<script>// <![CDATA[
alert("Hello world");
// ]]></script>

After saving the page, it is displayed as:

// <![CDATA[ alert("Hello world"); // ]]>

Edit the page again, and see this in the HTML editor:

<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>// &lt;![CDATA[ alert("Hello world"); // ]]&gt;</p>

What happened: Saving the Canvas page turned the script element
into a paragraph element.  Probably the makers of Canvas don't want
to risk user scripts interfering with their own Canvas scripts,
though there is a remote possibility that this feature is by
accident rather than design.

Awesome story produced in answering "'How can I minimize my chances of having a disabled child?" which also produces answer to "How to get tenure".
Even before I got tenure, folks have told me they're “looking forward to an academic advice post on tenure.” From how to get a Ph.D. to monthly resolutions for grad students, I've found it easy to write academic posts on just about every topic. Except this one. I got tenure over a year ago, ...

"Microsoft loves Linux." -- Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella (old news to some, October 2014, but new news to me)

"... the world is leaving the old desktop/application computing paradigm for a device/cloud services approach. Microsoft ruled the former; however, to continue to be a contender in the later, it's realized that it needs to work and play well with others. Yes, even Linux."
Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer may have hated Linux, but new Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella says Microsoft loves Linux. What changed Microsoft's mind?

In the 1980's I would have said, and probably did say, that although abortion is a repulsive procedure, it is morally permissible, and therefore should be legally permissible.  In the three decades since then, I've come to a very different conclusion.  Here is my reasoning, in outline....
