Interesting info about real maintenance intervals on BMW's (pre-free maintenance)
So, if you're maintaining the car religiously only to sell it at 75,000 miles then you're a good guy for helping out subsequent owners. That's nice, but to realize the fruits of your diligence, you need to keep the car longer.

about.me Backstory
I pitched nearly the same idea to some friends a few months ago, but with a focus on storytelling and accomplishments rather than just having links. I think something like this has the potential to be much more compelling and useful than a traditional resume.

Analog(ue) #1: Putting It Into The Universe
I think Casey and Myke are pretty brave to be putting this much "inside baseball" into a public podcast. I think it has huge potential. I don't know if they intend to take it this way, but imagine <a href="http://www.imore.com/debug">Debug</a> with interviews about the personal challenges of creating/launching something and getting feedback rather than the technical bits.

America Is Not For Black People
The worst part of outfitting our police officers as soldiers has been psychological. Give a man access to drones, tanks, and body armor, and he'll reasonably think that his job isn't simply to maintain peace, but to eradicate danger. Instead of protecting and serving, police are searching and destroying.

If officers are soldiers, it follows that the neighborhoods they patrol are battlefields. And if they're working battlefields, it follows that the population is the enemy. And because of correlations, rooted in historical injustice, between crime and income and income and race, the enemy population will consist largely of people of color, and especially of black men. Throughout the country, police officers are capturing, imprisoning, and killing black males at a ridiculous clip, waging a very literal war on people like Michael Brown.

Web App 2.0 Interface for Glassboard
We've been working with my friend Justin to create a new web app experience for Glassboard. He's teasing the new UI - I'm pretty pleased with the design we came up with. We'll have lots more on this when it ships.

Achieving Zen With Auto Layout - The Book
You can purchase Achieving Zen With Auto Layout today and get access to a PDF of the current state of the book, as well as a private GitHub repository where I am writing and storing all the sample code as I go. So far this has proven to be a wonderful way to write, because buyers of the book are able to provide direct feedback to me about the book so I can iron out any confusion or missing things I may not have thought of during my first draft.

The Pitchforks Are Coming… For Us Plutocrats - Nick Hanauer - POLITICO Magazine
The only way to slash government for real is to go back to basic economic principles: You have to reduce the demand for government. If people are getting $15 an hour or more, they don’t need food stamps. They don’t need rent assistance. They don’t need you and me to pay for their medical care. If the consumer middle class is back, buying and shopping, then it stands to reason you won’t need as large a welfare state. And at the same time, revenues from payroll and sales taxes would rise, reducing the deficit.

The First Micro Four Third Lenses You Should Buy
The Panasonic 20mm f1.7 pancake lens is my everyday lens, and I also have the Olympus 45mm f1.8 that they recommend as a portrait lens. I'm actually quite happy with the nice small body, the two fast lenses and little to no complications of fuss.
