Requiem for GitHub - Hintjens.com
Since its birth in 2008, GitHub redefined how software developers worked together. The firm was famous for several reasons: it had no middle management, it had a strong remote working culture, it made exactly what we needed, no more or less, and it was always profitable. These are interrelated. Today, GitHub has 500 employees, is valued at $2bn, and I think it is dying. Here is why.

Vongola thinks their biggest problem will be training one twin to become Decimo and making sure the other one won’t try to overthrow them. They soon realize it really isn’t.


(Dino meets them for all of two minutes before he wonders if the Nono has finally gone either senile or insane. Because you’d have to be one or the other to think that forcing these two Skies into a life they don’t want won’t blow up in all their faces one day.)

(Tsuna and Shion are going to tear Vongola apart for what it’s done to them.)

One of Africa’s Biggest Dams Is Falling Apart - The New Yorker
The World Bank and other international financiers like dams because they seem to offer large-scale solutions to energy and water shortages. Kariba is just one of more than two thousand large dams in Africa; Zimbabwe, one of the world’s poorest nations, has at least two hundred and fifty-four. But maintaining a dam is expensive—and much less popular than building one. Even in affluent countries such as the United States—whose dam infrastructure is in sufficient disrepair to have earned a “D” rating from the American Society of Civil Engineers, in 2013—maintenance is often neglected; it’s not likely to fare better in impoverished, corruption-ridden countries such as Zimbabwe or Iraq. Dams can’t be drained, and dismantling them can be as costly as building them. It’s the trap of Industrial Age technology: once mechanized systems supplant natural ones, they must be managed in perpetuity, or else they break down.

Bus Economy Booming | Mother Jones
Intercity bus service in the US jumped nearly 10 percent in the last year. In fact, the rate of growth was the highest in more than 40 years. Rising fuel prices played a role. But so did the revival of downtown districts and a growing acceptance of bus travel among younger travelers. via Pocket

The NFL's magic yellow line, explained - YouTube
Watching a football game is not real. It's a synthetic exprience. Every frame you see is augmented by a computer to add information. How yellow line Football works. AR. Sport vision make a 3D mathematical model of the field using laser surveying tools. During the game data is gathered from the camers about pan, tile, and zoom positions for every single frame. So if the down is at the 43rd yard line for example, the computers combine the camera data with their own model of the field to draw the yellow line in the proper perspective and to redraw it for every frame. The next part is cool, they have to remove any part of the line obstructure by players, etc so the line looks like it's underneath them, almost painted on the field. The way they do this is by sampling colors. COnsider the field as a giant green screen. They map which shades of green and brown are in the field given the lighting condisions of the day. Those are the colors to be convered by the yellow line. They also identify which colors are used in player uniforms and should never be colored by yellow. It only fails in the most extreme weather conditions like a blizzard. Even then yardage markers could be inerted into the frame. It delays the boradcast by less than a second. This technology is being used to insert adds into sports stadiums. Yep, all those ads you see may not even be there (but not in NFL). In 2001 the yellow line cost $25,000 per game to make.
