Looking for recommendations of good new (2017) music. Got any? Any genre is fine but the more obscure the better.

Good guy Ballmer, organizing the USA's information and making it universally accessible and useful.
I’ve been eagerly awaiting the public release of Steve Ballmer’s USAFacts project, and now it’s here. Andrew Ross Sorkin gives a great overview, but also be sure to check out the site itself (which is linked in Sorkin's NYT profile of the project below).

I particularly like the way the project aligns government spending with the "mission statement" of the country as expressed in the preamble to the constitution. I also like the way that it combines Federal, State, and Local, based on the insight that we should be looking at government services from a user-centered point of view, not from the structure of who provides them.

This book description makes zero sense to me. What Parking Garages have to do with Product Hunt?!?!

Someone apparently created a visualization of the history of code changes to my nictuku/dht library:

Do this now. It's easy.
PSA (and hat to +Pim van Pelt who reminded me): if you use Google services at all, please visit

https://google.com/takeout

Takeout is one of the coolest things that Google does. It's a backup of almost all of the data that is yours and is about you, ready for you to take with you if ever you want or need to leave your Google account. All the email in your gmail account (in mbox format!) all your photos synced from the photos app, all your search history, files in drive... you get the idea.

It's your data and a bunch of hard working folks at Google made sure you could get it whenever you want. And the new year is a good time to make a backup of your own.

So do that. Do it now. It's not that hard and it's totally worth it.

This is the best comedy scene of 2016. Lady Florence's signing practice, with her husband, her maestro teacher, and a pianist who wasn't previously warned of her complete awfulness as a singer. But she was extremely rich and generous, so nobody told her how bad she sang, so she kept singing in public - all the way to the Carnegie Hall. And this all really happened. The real world's Florence Foster Jenkins' signing is immortalized in recordings available in public domain and on YouTube. Hilarious.

I'm vacationing in Brazil. It took me 8 years living abroad to properly notice the beauty and amazing diversity of plants and animals here in the Cerrado.
