I remember when Google+ first went public, and it was amazing. Now that they've pushed it on us in every way possible, my feelings are more along the lines of the top comments here: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=5534882 "Google has overstayed the web's welcome."

Just noticed that google is using https by default.. is this something new? A search for 'google ssl' turns up nothing relevant.

Probably best with a napkin, but pretty awesome. I'm surprised that this is the first bacon-taco combination I've seen.
What genius is responsible for this wonder? We must find out, then create a bacon category among the Nobel Prizes, then award the chef with it. -via That’s Nerdalicious!

Huge press coverage for Khan Academy.

While growing up with online education, I always thought about how someday, it would be the norm. It's a weird feeling to see that slowly becoming a reality.
With the backing of Gates and Google, Khan Academy and its free online educational videos are moving into the classroom and across the world. Their goal: to revolutionize how we teach and learn. Sanja...

If Apple could link the iPod Nano to the iPhone via Bluetooth, it could deliver real-time information and updates from your iPhone right to your wrist.

Oh my goodness. This is one of the best beers I've ever had. Coffee/chocolate/caramel aroma, medium body, & tastes like chocolate and hops and joy. Nearly perfect, or if you're judging by the Ratebeer score, you could say it actually is perfect..

I was 1 for 2 tonight. Got a sixer of this stuff, fortunately. Unfortunately, I also got a 6-pack of Weihenstephaner Original, which I learned is different from the Hefe Weissbier. If Blue Moon and Heineken had a child, it's kinda like that. Not my thing.

I find this slightly horrifying.

Why do software development methodologies have to involve sending everyone to seminars/conferences or visiting "Agile celebrities"? This is crazy. I understand that there's a large community around it, but when it comes to simply getting a job done, can't you just call a meeting where everyone agrees on a system/methodology/schedule that will maximize everyone's productivity? Make sure everyone knows how it works. Everyone is different, so don't force everyone into what could be an annoying distraction, but try to come to a consensus. Decide how to iterate. Build a roadmap. Can't this be done in a day for $0?

I can't shake off this feeling that Agile is a product, with a community/cult of developers/salespeople.

Really terrifying article about fighting a war from behind a computer monitor. Worth the read.
Realistic? The following article is a response to an article already published by Medium Difficulty, entitled “Call of Apathy: Violent Young Man and Our Place in War,” written by anonymous contributor...

Today I learned that there are people who pet animals for a living:

Advanced petting. That's probably a really degrading way of describing it, but it's the first thought that comes to mind. It probably is way more complicated than that.

Story
Tagline
I'm really good at untangling wires.
Introduction
I'm a self-educated web developer, supporter of alternative education techniques, Mets & Jets fan, and producer of odd electroacoustic music.

I like to play around with every language, framework, and CMS that I come across. The endless variety of open-source tools that we have available to us is one of my favorite things about developing stuff.
Bragging rights
A deep appreciation for humble attitudes?

Friendly staff, good vibes, good coffee. I don't know of any other place in the area to compare it to. The niceties of coffee shops in more upscale areas, without the pretentiousness.

I've bought a bike and several parts here. It's a small place, but they take care of you quickly, they're very friendly (whether you know a lot about bikes or not), and the prices are good. I'm happy to live a few blocks away.

Just went in to get one thing, and was able to find it quickly. Service seems good - spent less than 5 minutes in there and had someone ask if I needed help. They seem to have quite a lot of things in stock. As a technologist always in need of some little part or tool, I'd imagine that this will be go-to location from now on.
