I feel their pain... As an O'Connor, in the early days of the web that apostrophe would usually be a SQL injection point that'd break a lot of apps. As a web developer, however, it meant I learned the importance of safe SQL very quickly indeed :)

Some nice looking photography plugins for Aperture, LR and PS are now free (thanks to Google):
Today we’re making the Nik Collection available to everyone, for free.

Photo enthusiasts all over the world use the Nik Collection to get the best out of their images every day. As we continue to focus our long-term investments in building incredible photo editing tools for mobile, including Google Photos and Snapseed, we’ve decided to make the Nik Collection desktop suite available for free, so that now anyone can use it.

The Nik Collection is comprised of seven desktop plug-ins that provide a powerful range of photo editing capabilities -- from filter applications that improve color correction, to retouching and creative effects, to image sharpening that brings out all the hidden details, to the ability to make adjustments to the color and tonality of images.

Starting March 24, 2016, the latest Nik Collection will be freely available to download: Analog Efex Pro, Color Efex Pro, Silver Efex Pro, Viveza, HDR Efex Pro, Sharpener Pro and Dfine. If you purchased the Nik Collection in 2016, you will receive a full refund, which we’ll automatically issue back to you in the coming days.

We’re excited to bring the powerful photo editing tools once only used by professionals to even more people now.

The demo reel of exceptionally high-quality real-time rendering in Unreal engine 4, which happens to now be free, is amazing. And, with Unity 5 being released and Corona also going free -- and Source 2 being pre-announced (but it will be free), it seems the theme right now for amazing game engines is that they are free. Crazy - in a good way :)

Interesting talk on common conflicts in game design (especially around the difficulty of telling a dynamic story)

Possibly the finest trance track ever produced. If I'm ever on desert island discs, this'd be coming with me...

Just posting this here because it looks interesting, and hopefully it'll remind me to watch it at some point in the future :)
