Programming is Terrible

I had these thoughts brewing in my head for a few years now, but it took me writing all of the above to finally be able to put it into words: programming is really fucking terrible. I mean, programming the job, not programming the hobby. I still like programming in my spare time, but I don’t think I ever caught myself writing code for my employer and thinking “hey, I really enjoy this”.

I knew it!

Dual N-Back Game

Dual N-Back exercise featured in Brain Workshop was the subject of an April 2008 peer-reviewed scientific study which shows that practicing the Dual N-Back task for 20 minutes 4-5 days per week will improve your working memory (short term memory) and fluid intelligence. This Wired article has a good summary of its benefits.

Seriously, it works! Try it for yourself.

Having the most fun

It’s unlikely I’ll ever be a programmer like DHH, Pike, Stroustrup, or Resig (to name a few) but luckily my own potential for fun and happiness is just as great as theirs. Yes, you can be the best programmer in the world.

Designing websites used to be fun to me. Now it’s more like a PIA. Something need to be done here.

Hilarious, but of course, it’s the truth.

Gov.uk: Why it really matters

That’s why Gov.uk is important. It’s simpler, clearer and faster for users and has changed how government works internally. We owe the minister for Cabinet Office, Francis Maude, and Martha Lane Fox, our digital champion, who between them have created the GDS.

The most useful, functional, and informative government website ever made.

Small Victories

Small Victories is a simple way to make a website out of the contents of a Dropbox folder.

The best CMS is no CMS, if you know what I mean.

Learning by Doing

A little over 4 months ago, I decided I was going to learn to code.

Ignoring the fact that I had no prior coding experience and had never taken any “technical” classes in school, I decided to build 180 websites in 180 days with no days off.

The Power to Change People's Fate

Hello. My name is Ed Snowden. A little over one month ago, I had family, a home in paradise, and I lived in great comfort. I also had the capability without any warrant to search for, seize, and read your communications. Anyone’s communications at any time. That is the power to change people’s fates.

Statement by Edward Snowden to human rights groups at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport.

PRISM Break

Opt out of PRISM, the NSA’s global data surveillance program. Stop the American government from spying on you by encrypting your communications and ending your reliance on proprietary services.

It is time to escape.
