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.»

Users should have the right support documents available in the context where they need them.

Embedding links in the code is not the way to go: they quickly get outdated and it's painful to maintain. Especially when the people maintaining the docs are not the ones developing the product.

A simple, customizable, modal window that makes it extremely easy to show a different set of documentation links for every section of your app.

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.

Skyperious is a Skype database viewer and merger, written in Python.

You can open Skype SQLite databases and look at their contents:
search across all messages and contacts
browse chat history and export as HTML or spreadsheet, see chat statistics
import contacts from a CSV file to your Skype contacts
view any database table and and export their data
change, add or delete data in any table

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.

​The Half Life of Body Hacking | Motherboard
On October 19, 2013, Tim Cannon got a Circadia 1.0—a sensor that can measure heat and pulse—implanted into his arm. The rectangular box sat there beneath his arm, measuring the temperature of his body, and transmitting that data to his cell phone. The idea is to ultimately develop a device that communicates with a thermostat, controlling the climate of a room based on a person’s internal temperature.

Cannon’s box wasn’t designed as a permanent implant. Based on the stress tests they’d done of the device, his team of bodyhackers at Grindhouse Wetware only planned to have it in for a maximum of 180 days. It lasted 94. Then he had it cut out.

Why Mathematicians Are Hoarding This Special Type of Japanese Chalk
This isn’t just a story about a dead chalk company—it’s the story of a dead medium, the chalkboard, now being superseded by whiteboards and tablets. But it’s not hard to see chalk having old-fashioned appeal, much like vinyl records and mason jars. For now, the chalk is still available on Amazon. Get it while it lasts.

The CLU | Сервис для друзей
Много-много лет мы помогаем друзьям, друзьям друзей и знакомым друзей друзей с их «яблочной» техникой. Начиная с рядовых продаж, мы придерживались принципа «своих не бросаем». Поэтому к нам всегда можно обратиться за помощью, даже если вы купили у нас Мак в лохматом 2006 году. Денег за такую помощь брать не привыкли, чем ставили людей в тупик: нам несли алкоголь, кофе, тортики. Печень начала бунтовать, нужен был выход.

Entweet: Securing Twitter — Lukasa/entweet
Everyone likes Twitter, right? We all think it's awesome.

However, Twitter suffers from one critical problem: it lacks GPG integration. In this modern era, we believe it's vital to wed the two most important technologies of our generation: message integrity, and 140-character witticisms.

Enter Entweet.

Entweet is a tool for taking Twitter and making it 100 times nerdier. No longer will you have to be content with tweeting in plaintext, like your non-tech-savvy uncle, Barry. Instead, you can take your Twitter conversations to the next level, by guaranteeing the integrity of everything you tweet, while making it really inconvenient for other people to read your messages.

Questions I ask when reviewing a design by Jason Fried of Basecamp
I’ve been thinking more about how I review a design – both my own and someone else’s. So over the past couple days I’ve been writing down every question I’ve been asking when I look at a design-in-progress. Some of these I say out loud, some just go through my head, some are in person, others are posted to Basecamp or Campfire.

After having managers describe an existing customer persona and consider the person’s thoughts and reactions, the research team asked the managers to anticipate the customer’s needs. The findings were not what you would expect. The more empathetic managers were, the more “egocentric” they became; that is, the more likely they were to say that the customers’ preferences were the same as their own.
