I’ve signed up for a year on the ice. I deploy in October. I’ve been to the ice several times before, and it’s about time I spent the night. Since my departure is closing in on me, I’m carefully noting all the things I won’t have access to for a long time.

Today I went shopping at Costco and Trader Joe’s. I didn’t look at prices. I didn’t care. I threw everything that I liked into the cart. Everything that I maybe nibble on even once a year.

C.WINTERFOX | Feminists are not responsible for educating men
It’s both exhausting and diversionary being expected to hash out the basics with men who haven’t bothered to think about their own privilege before. Men are not entitled to expect feminists to educate them. Real change will only happen when men accept that the burden of education is on them, not on women.

The Extensible Web Manifesto
he Extensible Web Manifesto
We—the undersigned—want to change how web standards committees create and prioritize new features. We believe that this is critical to the long-term health of the web.

We aim to tighten the feedback loop between the editors of web standards and web developers.

Today, most new features require months or years of standardization, followed by careful implementation by browser vendors, only then followed by developer feedback and iteration. We prefer to enable feature development and iteration in JavaScript, followed by implementation in browsers and standardization.

To enable libraries to do more, browser vendors should provide new low-level capabilities that expose the possibilitie

The Cure for Sidewalk Rage Is Gratitude
Once upon a time, cognitive scientists tell us, patience and impatience had an evolutionary purpose. They constituted a yin and yang balance, a finely tuned internal timer that tells when we’ve waited too long for something and should move on. When that timer went buzz, it was time to stop foraging at an unproductive patch or abandon a failing hunt.

Why libsass is important to the community |
@hcatlin took a huge gamble. He saw this issue and wanted to see if he could find a way to fix it. The Ruby community was not really playing well with others and JavaScript is NOT always the answer. Shedding off layers in computing, you quickly get to the bare metal of it all, C/C++. The core language that rules most of our worlds.

Two monks are walking through the forest, and they come across an old lady who needs help crossing a river. They puzzle over what to do, because as part of their vows they both swore that they would never touch any woman. Eventually one monk shrugs, helps the woman up, and carries her on his back across the rushing water.

The other monk is horrified. All afternoon as they walk towards home, he’s lecturing about how the first monk has behaved terribly, and they’re going to have to tell the abbott, and he’s shocked that he so easily betrayed his vows.

Hours later, they finally get back to the monastery, and the first monk turns and says, “That woman? All I did was carry her across the water. You, though, have been carrying her ever since.”
