The Harp Reference: Bending Tips
"Bending is a basic diatonic harmonica playing technique used to produce notes not otherwise available in the basic tuning of the harp, and they are also used to provide various sliding-note effects. Bends are, in large part, what give the diatonic harp its unique character, and are intimately related to the blues tradition."

Using Kaleidoscope for git code reviews
"KSReview is a useful way to do code reviews of feature branches. KSReview compares all of the work done on a feature branch since it diverged from master (or from another branch you specify) while filtering out any other activity from that branch that might otherwise get in your way. We use this ourselves every day and we think it is a fantastic way to do code reviews."

Hamilton 68: Tracking Putin's Propaganda Push... To America
The charts and graphs here display hashtags, topics and URLs promoted by Russia-linked influence networks on Twitter. Content is not necessarily produced or created by Russian government operatives, although that is sometimes the case. Instead, the network often opportunistically amplifies content created by third parties not directly linked to Russia. Common themes for amplification include content attacking the U.S. and Europe, conspiracy theories and disinformation. Russian influence operations also frequently promote extremism and divisive politics in Western countries. Just because the Russia-aligned network monitored here tweets something, that doesn’t mean everyone who tweets the same content is aligned with Russia.

“Can charts be shown in text without using code?”

Data can be hard to grasp – visualising it can make comprehension faster. Sparklines (tiny charts in text) are a useful tool but creating them for the web has always required code. Removing the need for code makes it more accessible. If you can use type, you can use Spark.

> The whole point of promises is to give us back the language fundamentals we lost when we went async: return, throw, and the stack. But you have to know how to use promises correctly in order to take advantage of them.
