  • Warren Ellis sketch (credit to The Paris Review)Molly Crabapple interviewed Warren Ellis for The Paris Review. The title is a quote from the interview, but this one was much better:

    There is no such thing, I believe, as a killer who sees themselves as the villain of their own story.

  • I enjoyed this thoughtful little piece by Ben Brooks. A couple of notes here:

    1. it took me a long time to figure out what the first image was supposed to be showing; and
    2. he's right about comment sections.

  • From the bertramdev/asset-pipeline README:

    The Grails asset-pipeline is a plugin used for managing/processing static assets. These include processing, and minification of both css, and javascript files. It is also capable of being extended to compile custom static assets, such as coffeescript. Asset Pipeline is intended to replace the defacto Grails equivalent (resources-plugin) with a more efficient, developer friendly architecture (similar to rails asset-pipeline). The asset-pipeline levereges the latest in minification (UglifyJS) to reduce your asset sizes as much as possible.

    I haven’t really dug into this beyond the README yet, but it might be worth at least some level-set examination.

  • Ted Dziuba:

    I’m not working to make the most efficiently coded, concise solution, I’m working to deliver business value in context.

  • Laura Miller, Salon.com:

    Walker regards conspiracy theory as a form of “folklore,” because “it says something true about the anxieties and experiences of the people who believe and repeat it, even if it says nothing true about the objects of the theory itself.”

  • the Solarized palette
    "Precision colors for machines and people" by Ethan Schoonover. I'm not sure why it's taken me so long to find this but… Well, I'm glad I did. Great color palettes for your terminal and IDE.
