Thought I had #superhuman power and am able to see into future few times in my life, turns out it's just a #dejavu

Terrifying time loop: The man trapped in constant deja vu - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-30927102
Scientists believe a 23-year-old British man's "constant deja vu" may have been triggered by anxiety - but what is deja vu, and what causes it?

Quick reference for Google APIs

While working with different Google APIs I often find myself jumping around different developers.google.com pages to figure out exactly what parameters I can use, or what response to expect from different API calls.

While the docs are great at getting you started with the APIs and all the detailed information is there as well, for me it's sometimes just too many clicks involved to get to the information I want, which is why I started building this quick reference, which gets me to all information I might need in a matter of two clicks. One click to choose the API I want, and one click to get details about the method I want.

https://discovery-check.appspot.com/docs/

This was also a fun experience in Polymer:

The <google-api-list> element has <core-ajax> request to https://www.googleapis.com/discovery/v1/apis with the result bound to a table.

When clicking on an API a <google-api-doc> element will be displayed, which has another <core-ajax> request to retrieve the discovery document, and then uses several simple/repeated/conditional/recursive templates to render the data.
I'll write up a short article about my Polymer experiences in the process when I get around to it :)

Update: Source code now online, article still in the making:

What do Web Analysts do?

Blast from the past... This one from Feb 2012 by Rachelle Maisner, http://goo.gl/vpBYzw, was just tweeted by someone. 

Funny and insightful. What do you think?

We’re on the eve of Google I/O, the company’s annual developer conference. That means there’s going to be a lot to chew on over the next few days in terms of software, APIs, and anything that runs...
