«Придумала игру в мудаков! Итак, комментатор первого уровня пишет любой (можно придуманный) факт или историю о себе – максимально мимишную и "безопасную", а все комментаторы ниже пытаются написать на основе этой истории наиболее мудацкий, оскорбительный, обесценивающий и упрекающий комментарий.»

On Tinder, Off Sex - The New York Times
“When I called my health clinic last month to refill the birth-control pill prescription I have had for 10 years, I was put on the line with a doctor — not my normal gynecologist — who began asking questions about my health.

“It says on your form that you’re interested in both men and women but that you do not use alternative forms of birth control outside of the pill,” he said.

“That’s correct,” I said. To pre-empt a safe-sex lecture, I told him I hadn’t had sex in two years, so it was really a moot point.

“So you’re secondary abstaining then,” he said, surely making note of this somewhere in my records.

“Well, I think ‘accidental abstaining’ is more appropriate,” I said jokingly, attempting to maintain some dignity in this conversation with a man I likely would never meet who seemed to view me as some kind of morally reformed or seriously disturbed woman in my mid-20s.”

This homophobic Tumblr post transformed into a dystopian LGBTI adventure novel and it is amazing - Gay Star News
“Sometimes homophobes will try anything to come up with a reasonable argument for why homosexuality is wrong, but it turns out with a little bit of thought that debate is going to be shut down very easily.
That’s what happened when an anti-gay Tumblr user said if there was a straight island, a gay island and a lesbian island, the only one that would survive is the one full of heterosexual people.
But then, Tumblr users came back with better arguments – and to be honest, a pitch for a LGBTI dystopian adventure novel that we would definitely read.”

Let Twitter Be Twitter | James Gleick
“Twitter is a mess—everybody says so. Twitter is mostly nonsense. You can’t find what you need on Twitter. Twitter is all haystack and no needles, all static and no signal.

By the lights of many investors Twitter is floundering. Its long-time CEO (five years is long in Internet time), Dick Costolo, jumped or was pushed in June, the board is scrambling to find a replacement, and Wall Street is sounding the alarm. The company’s revenue merely doubled last year, to $1.4 billion. Only 300 million people use Twitter every month. Apparently that isn’t enough.”

Green Card — часто задаваемые вопросы, алгоритм и подробности
«С 2010 года Россия снова, после пятилетнего перерыва, участвует в визовой лотерее Green Card (если официально, Diversity Visa Lottery). Украина, Белоруссия и все остальные бывшие союзные республики тоже участвуют. Про лотерею эту все краем уха слышали и многие не отказались бы попытать счастья - но кто-то вовсе не верит в ее существование, кто-то не хочет разбираться, потому что точную информацию собирать довольно сложно, а кто-то и вовсе обжегся на мошенниках, которые вечно на ней паразитируют. Между тем: лотерея существует, участвовать в ней просто, денег участие не стоит вообще никаких. Правда, в случае выигрыша нужно будет потратить время и деньги, но это все тоже в пределах разумного и не очень сложно. Мы, супружеская пара москвичей, - выиграли, сделали все правильно и получили иммиграционные визы. А теперь хотим поделиться опытом и собрать в одном месте все, что узнали за это время.»

Петр Бизюков о рождении в России нового социального класса - Газета.Ru
В России все шире распространяется прекариальный труд. Это непостоянная работа, негарантированная и невысокая оплата, нерегламентированное рабочее время. Никакого обучения, никакого социального пакета, никакой охраны труда. И еще один важный момент — никакой возможности защитить свои позиции и права.

How to Get a “God’s-Eye View” of Your Story in Microsoft Excel | Animation World Network
The reason I use Excel to develop story structure is based on a writing principle I discovered years ago. I call it getting a God’s-Eye View of the story. I realized that by writing my outline beats in a normal word processing program it took screen after screen to go through my scenes. So while I was looking at one portion of my story, the rest of the story was out of sight. And as they say, “Out of sight, out of mind”. But when I write I want all of my story in mind. And here’s how I do it...

Жажда денег. Чем вреден доклад «Столыпинского клуба»
«В общем, мы в очередной раз – с новыми соавторами и дополнительными мерами – услышали старую сказку о том, что нужно просто напечатать больше денег и не пустить их на валютный рынок в долларизированной стране; что в насквозь поражённой коррупцией системе вдруг родятся честные контролёры (что особенно важно, отделённые от надзорных органов); что за счёт повышения налогов можно снизить налоговое бремя, и, наконец, что не представляет интереса делать что-то одно, если можно всё и сразу.»

Ten Rules for Open Source Success -
Everyone wants it, lots of people try it, yet doing it is mostly painful and irritating. I'm speaking about free software aka open source. Today I'm going to summarize 25 years of experience in ten management-proof bullet points.

1. People Before Code
2. Use a Share-Alike License
3. Use an Zero-Consensus Process
4. Problem, then Solution
5. Contracts Before Internals
6. Promote From Within
7. Write Down the Rules
8. Enforce the Rules Fairly
9. Aim For the Cloud
10. Be Happy and Pleasant

Subscription iPhones — Benedict Evans
“Finally, this sort of shift is a prerequisite for there to be any point to soft SIMs in smartphones. A soft SIM in a subsidized handset locked to an operator is pointless (except for the engineering benefits). But a soft SIM (presuming the MNOs support it) in a phone financed by Apple, with seamless number portability (or of course a voice and messaging app environment in which mobile numbers matter less and less) is a much more subversive thing. The operators do of course have to enable soft SIMs (it's their code), but there's now a long history of operators bending to the inevitable.”

E-Book Sales Fall After New Amazon Contracts - WSJ
A recent snapshot of e-book prices found that titles in the Kindle bookstore from the five biggest publishers cost, on average, $10.81, while all other 2015 e-books on the site had an average price of $4.95, according to industry researcher Codex Group LLC.

“Since book buyers expect the price of a Kindle e-book to be well under $9, once you get to over $10 consumers start to say, ‘Let me think about that,’” said Codex CEO Peter Hildick-Smith.

Извините, я про пармезан — Элла Панеях | Блог | InLiberty
«Скажем честно, целью антипотребительских санкций не было превратить сыр «Российский» рядовой из «Пятерочки» из вполне съедобной субстанции в ту кошмарную замазку на пальмовом масле, которой сейчас забиты прилавки общенародных магазинов. Это так, неожиданный побочный эффект, от безграмотности и неумения просчитывать последствия — кто мешал не включать сычуги в список? Притравить аллергиков и получить на углах в Питере распродажи недодавленных бульдозерами персиков, утащенных гражданами с помойки, — тоже вряд ли входило в планы.

А вот что выступало практически главной целью — отобрать лишнее.

Не дать людям — особенно тем, кто может позволить себе больше, — тратить деньги на баловство, вкусненькое, слишком хорошее, скорее приятное, чем остро необходимое. Не хлеб выдернуть изо рта, а сыр с бутерброда. Не картошку отобрать, а персик. Государству нужна валюта, ага, ага, вспомнили? И, переводя стрелки с себя, лишившихся вроде всего лишь мелких радостей жизни, на страдающих и слабых, мы стыдливо признаем, что да — лишнее, да, баловство, а раз баловство и лишнее, то и отобрать не грех. И что вообще это как бы не наше дело решать, есть ли у нас право на баловство. Не хлеб же отбирают, не жизненно необходимый продукт для особых потребностей.»

Stop pushing the web forward - QuirksBlog
The innovation machine is running at full speed in the wrong direction. We need a break. We need an opportunity to learn to the features we already have responsibly — without tools! Also, we need the time for a fundamental conversation about where we want to push the web forward to. A year-long moratorium on new features would buy us that time.

Additionally, it doubles as a useful database tool for any SQLite file.
Also, a command line interface is available with key functions like exporting, searching, and merging.
The graphical version includes a Python console window.

Making a backup of the database file is recommended before making any changes. There is an easy "Save as" button for that on the database index page.
