How to run secret ZX Spectrum message from Radiohead’s OKNOTOK C90 tape
Amazing Easter Egg. Some weird noise on a new track in the OK Computer reissue is actually a Spectrum program.

The Travis CI Blog: Start Every Meeting with a Personal Check-in
Focus and presence were very much things I took for granted before I started managing. I now realise that these are both limited resources. This feels like a nice tool to have in our arsenals.

A Unified Styling Language – SEEK blog – Medium
I finally understand the React-driven CSS-in-JS movement. Great read. I'm still not entirely sold on it, but I understand it. Maybe I need to use it in anger, get a feel for the pros and cons.

The Guardian is getting 60 percent of its Google mobile traffic from AMP - Digiday
Interesting to see some real positive data around AMP. I'm still not sold, but those are numbers that are hard to argue with. The stories around accidentally creating invalid articles and the fallout from that are also interesting. This all in contrast to Guardian dropping Apple News and Instant Articles.

I love this, I have no idea whether github would be ok with this if everyone did it, but it's a nice solution to the comments problem

KYLI – because it is superior to JSON – Terence Eden's Blog
Terence wasn't happy with JSON, so he created "KYLI". I'll be honest, I mostly bookmarked this for the wordplay.

Learning Fluency – Medium
"The disregard of rote memorization is a failure of imagination." Great read, and a perspective I've not considered. Why do I embrace the idea of spaced repetition for something like German in Duolingo, but why does it seem out of leftfield when applied to something like programming?

Functional Composition - Chris Ford - YouTube
I found this little gem buried in OneTab. A few years ago I attempted GEB, this makes me want to pick it up again. Also, write more Clojure. I definitely want to write more Clojure.

noffle/art-of-readme: Learn the art of writing quality READMEs.
"The ideal README is as short as it can be without being any shorter. Detailed documentation is good -- make separate pages for it! -- but keep your README succinct." Node-centric, but the wisdom can be applied to pretty much any language / ecosystem.

Out of Many, One: The Science of Composite Photography
The resulting blurry images allude to idealized shared experiences, but also expose usually unexamined visual conventions. (As Efros noted, looking at Salavon’s newlyweds, “The bride is usually to the right of the groom. I didn’t know that. Maybe he didn’t know that.”)
