Typotheque: Harir - Reducing Noise in Arabic Script by Bahman Eslami
Our daily lives are full of noise, but when we immerse ourselves in reading, it seems to disappear. But what if the shapes of the words we read also contain perceptible noise? Does it disrupt the reading process, or do we learn to filter it out?

It is time to repeal Godwin's Law. - Dangerous to those who profit from the way things areDangerous to those who profit from the way things are
No, you should not make overblown comparisons to tragic and horrific events. The seasonal availability of pumpkin spice lattés is not the same as rationing. Your parents grounding you is not the same as being imprisoned. You generally shouldn’t be an asshole with a total lack of historical perspective. But you shouldn’t be afraid of some basic fucking pattern recognition, either.

For Better or For Worse
Take a known set of tradeoffs, a known point on the continuum between simple and sophisticated, and make minor adjustments based on dozens of accumulated years of practical experience with real world development. This is an unapolagetically straightforward engineering approach to system building.

We need less powerful languages - All Unkept
"Note that this is almost exactly the opposite of Paul Graham's advice" (this is a hard sentence to pass up)

"In a “less powerful” language, this would be possible, but the power given to the program author in Python has taken power from all the other tools in the environment."

I Want To Be A Bad Bitch On A Motorcycle | Femsplain
When you’re moving that quickly, you cannot think about anything else: not your Twitter mentions, not your ex and the awkward way you left things, not that presentation at work. You just can’t. It’s a forced unplug, and a rare one for someone who lives and breathes social media like I do.

The Troubles with Gender | Skepchick
If gender is a social construct, it is so for everyone regardless of being cis, trans or otherwise. We all navigate the same landscape of expressions and limitations. It is not the responsibility of every single trans person to be subversive of heteronormativity. Holding trans people to a higher standard than other people is simply put hypocrisy.

I spent a weekend at Google talking with nerds about charity. I came away … worried. - Vox
If effective altruism does a lot more of that, it can transform philanthropy and provide a revolutionary model for rigorous, empirically minded advocacy. But if it gets too impressed with its own cleverness, the future is far bleaker.

In this plutocrat's playground of a city, it's good to know there's still a commune to call home
The Tea And Pronouns chart made me aware of my own prejudices in a new way. I do not judge people who prefer to be known as 'they' rather than 'he' or 'she.'  I judge people who prefer blueberry tea over the proper sort with the squinty eyes of unreconstructed bias.

"Where's My Cut?": On Unpaid Emotional Labor - The Toast
Housework is not work. Sex work is not work. Emotional work is not work. Why? Because they don’t take effort? No, because women are supposed to provide them uncompensated, out of the goodness of our hearts.

And I've finally found a home
In a handful of people I was lucky enough to bump into
We act like pessimists but we're in love with it

And I'm in love with you
And our tiny bed in the upstairs front room
Of a rundown terrace house
Which is obviously perfect as it sounds

Even in the summer
When the cardboard window that you tape on everyday
Falls out and wakes us up

OK, Grace. — New research shows 0.6% of rape allegations are...
“Furthermore, the report shows that a significant number of these cases involved young, often vulnerable people. About half of the cases involved people aged 21 years old and under, and some involved people with mental health difficulties. In some cases, the person alleged to have made the false report had undoubtedly been the victim of some kind of offence (sic), even if not the one which he or she had reported.”

The Light Asservancy Game (furialog)
We have played this game for rather extended periods, with a three-year-old's giddy enthusiasm for escalating repetition, long enough a couple times for me to get a little worried that I might be really upsetting her with the extremes of abnegation, but each time I have tried to stop, she has instantly switched out of character and indignantly demanded that I go back to playing the game correctly.

Eulogy for youth
That first taste of euphoria—those indefinable transcendent moments that begin on the cusp of adulthood and chase us into our twenties—is a drug of its own. An elusive, essentially transient glimpse at what could anchor our world—the promise of fantastic possibility with no instruction of how to make that real, no map for the grunt work to follow.
