How can it possibly true that the average American spends 4.7 hours a day watching TV? Boggles the mind!

Wow, @DevDocs is super cool — offline programming references in the browser! Sort-of like a Web-based Dash. Free and libre! Nice work @tibc!

Current project involves Python scripts; Node.js modules running in AWS λ; API Gateway; OCaml programs; bash scripts; Terraform; RAML… whew!

Wow, I didn’t realize I’d been using @Rdio for over 5 years. Gonna miss it. https://t.co/zvwV88dKr0

Hey, an overwrought restaurant website that would actually (probably) work with a screen reader!

Progress!

At this point it seems just absolutely clear that rank-and-file police officers should not be carrying guns.

Atul Gawande’s “The Checklist” is a compelling read on the surprising effectiveness of checklists:

I’ve got a lot of feelings this morning about China, injustice, Israel, human rights, and anti-Semitism: aviflax.com/post/joy-horro…

Joy + Horror + Frustration

I’m feeling joy for the ~13MM Chinese shadow people who will finally be granted citizenship, but also horror at the magnitude of the injustice perpetrated by China’s leaders against these people. And also frustration that some people who care about human rights focus so much more on the situation of the Arabs of the West Bank than other larger injustices around the world. I also yearn deeply to root out injustice, but singling out Israel’s actions to a degree out of proportion to their scope is just anti-Semitism masked in righteous rhetoric.

Some half & half for my half-size half-caf… I’m either a master of moderation or a hapless half-wit.

Tweet about Swift, get a rush of follows. So… Swiftly Swifter Swifty Swiftless Swiftingular Swiftacular Swiftish Swifts Swiftably Swifting 😜

Swift on Linux servers is likely to be big. It has a lot going for it, few blockers, strong momentum, and its design hits a sweet spot.
