Observable programming

February 22, 2018

Excel is unusually good at allowing you to build complex programs while allowing you to see the values of every intermediate computation.

As a result, you often find people who claim to struggle with the abstract thinking that most other programming requires but who construct elaborate Excel workbooks with ease. However, Excel struggles to make the formulas themselves easily observable. (Ever tried to audit the correctness of a complex Excel sheet?) Excel formulas also fail at supporting abstraction well.

Google WiFi now shows which devices are struggling to connect
Google WiFi now shows which devices are struggling to connect https://ift.tt/2rGvsaq Prospective https://ift.tt/2rL6VBO May 16, 2018 at 12:42AM

Run a large-enough WiFi network and there's bound to be that one device that can't quite hold on to a fast connection, like the tablet in your bedroom or a laptop in the backyard. But how do you quantify that flaky connection? Google can help. It's deploying an updated Network Check feature for Google WiFi routers that will check the performance of devices on your network and help you identify ones with unusually low performance. You'll know if you need to move an access point, move a device or (if it's truly bad) expand your network to provide better coverage.

The feature should reach Google WiFi users worldwide through the mobile app in the "coming weeks." You already have the ability to check the speed between access points, but this should provide a much more comprehensive picture of your network that eliminates much of the uncertainty.

Royal Wedding 2018: The Ultimate Royal Wedding Drinking Game — Quartzy
The ultimate royal wedding drinking game https://ift.tt/2rJJEjV Prospective https://ift.tt/2rP3iKC May 16, 2018 at 12:35AM

Get your Pimm’s and finger sandwiches ready: Quartzy has created the ultimate drinking game in honor of the royal nuptials between Meghan Markle and Prince Harry this Saturday, May 19. We’ve included dozens of predictions—from the well-researched to the fantastical—with the help of royal family experts James Barr and Kristen Meinzer, hosts of When Meghan Met Harry: A Royal Wedding cast (the duo will be releasing all of their predictions in the form of a drinking game/Bingo board, so follow them on Twitter to get access to it).

In the meantime, we’ve combined expert predictions (for wedding obsessives) with our own (for more casual viewers). Cheers!

Right Effort, Right Interface — Ben Hammersley
I'm not sure about the idea of relying on watch/voice interfaces, but I love the idea of wrapping my phone up in fabric (furoshiki) so as to encourage myself to use it only when I actually want to *use* it, instead of like scratching an itch.
