Google Web Fonts Typographic Project
There are over 640 Google web fonts available for free. Problem is, pairing typefaces isn't easy. And, many of the fonts in Google's library don’t work well when applied to typical webpage (desktop) layouts. Part of the 25x52 initiative, this collaborative, ongoing project helps provide typographic inspiration for using Google’s web fonts for web applications.

All You Can Eat | Magazine
And yet for all the poking, prodding, measuring, and testing, the most remarkable thing about the $5 million undertaking may be that it's designed to answer a question you'd think we'd have answered long ago: Do we get fat because we overeat or because of the types of food we eat?

fast 50mm focal length lenses
The holy grail for many is a 40mm-60mm lens which at a wide aperture of f/1.4 or faster, is sharp with creamy bokeh. Unfortunately, the reality is that with most legacy fast 50mm lenses used on digital cameras, they tend to be soft wide open with considerable ghosting and CA, and although they have thin depth of field, and thus great for blurring backgrounds, their bokeh can be quite busy and harsh.

Fujifilm EF-20 v EF-X20 Flash
I think you have unstated how slow the recharge time is on the EF-X20. With a fresh pair of AAAs, recharge time on mine is in the range of 20-22 seconds. Very slow. For me, that's pretty close to not usable for real world shooting.

Comparison: Fuji XF 56mm f1.2 - Voigtländer Nokton 50mm f1.1 - Leica R 80mm f1.4
I like, and will always like, the Leica R 80mm f1.4! A superb lens! But in the 23 years I´ve owned it, things has happend: Both the Fuji 56mm and the Voigtländer Nokton weighs almost just the half of the Summilux. This in mind, the advantage of Fuji's autofocus, and the incredible sharpness all the way to the corners of the image at all aperatures makes the Fuji a winner here!

News.ycombinator.com: BPA-Free Plastic Containers May Be Just as Hazardous
In 1970, over 75% of kids in the US were never breastfed, which means they drank milk from BPA containing bottles from day 1. And they turned out fine. Don't get unreasonably worried about it. That white collar job with a lot of sitting that you're hoping he or she will get will do much worse things to the body. And if you're driving your kid around in the burbs, well BPA is in the noise compared to that staggering risk. Leading cause of death for kids 2-25. I have a two year old daughter who drinks out of clear plastic bottles and sleeps on a mattress containing fire retardant chemicals, and at the end of the day by far the biggest risk I expose her to is driving down to her grandparents' on the weekend.

Wired.com: I Liked Everything I Saw on Facebook for Two Days. Here’s What It Did to Me
There’s this great Andy Warhol quote you’ve probably seen before: “I think everybody should like everybody.” You can buy posters and plates with pictures of Warhol, looking like the cover of a Belle & Sebastian album, with that phrase plastered across his face in Helvetica. But the full quote, taken from a 1963 interview in Art News, is a great description of how we interact on social media today.
