Mobile phones and the good life: Examining the relationships among mobile use, social capital and subjective well-being
Adopting an affordance-based approach, this study examines how different uses of the mobile phone are related to individuals’ subjective well-being and social capital. Findings from a national survey showed that both voice and online communication with the mobile phone is positively related to various indicators of subjective well-being and bonding and bridging capital. Moreover, both bonding and bridging capital mediated the relationship between mobile phone use and subjective well-being. On the other hand, non-communicative uses, such as information seeking activities, were negatively related to positive affect and passing time activities were positively related to negative affect. Implications of the findings are discussed.

10 Reasons Beginners Should Learn Ruby on Rails
8. Ruby itself is a forgiving language for beginners.

At the end of the day Ruby on Rails applications are mostly written in Ruby, so it helps that it has a few features that make it especially good for beginners to learn. Unlike Javascript and many other languages, you don’t need to remember to end your lines with a semicolon (;). Unlike Python and some other languages, whitespaces and tabbing doesn’t matter. A lot of the times, you can leave out things like parenthesis () and curly brackets {} and it doesn’t even matter! Ruby knows what you meant. On top of that, Ruby is very readable.

Science Has Great News for People Who Read Actual Books - Mic
"A 2014 study found that readers of a short mystery story on a Kindle were significantly worse at remembering the order of events than those who read the same story in paperback. Lead researcher Anne Mangen of Norway's Stavanger University concluded that "the haptic and tactile feedback of a Kindle does not provide the same support for mental reconstruction of a story as a print pocket book does.""

David Cole's answer to How do I learn to code? What language should I start with? - Quora
Flask has a nice level of community support, and Heroku has a tutorial (Getting Started with Python on Heroku) that holds your hand through the process of deploying a Flask application to one of their servers. It's not quite the final step in the process because Heroku doesn't support SQLite, which the Flask tutorial uses, so I had to connect that one last dot.

Fortunately, an article about precisely this had already been written: Flask and PostgreSQL on Heroku. This post wasn't as newbie-friendly as I'd hoped, but with the help of Postgres.app (to get Postgres running locally), the SQLAlchemy Documentation, and good old fashioned guess-and-check, I achieved my goal of getting a simple web application deployed onto Heroku.
