What’s New? Victory Lap for Ask Patents 22 Jul There are a lot of people complaining about lousy software patents these days. I say, stop complaining, and start killing them. It took me about fifteen minutes to stop a crappy Microsoft patent from being approved. Joel on Software

I was reading @ednapiranha blog about her tips on running and recall that I wanted to write something about running in my blog for quite some time now. Don't worry, this is not going to be yet another lose-some-weightimprove-your-health post like the millions you'd find on the internet if you search for running. I won't distill tips or hints on how to run either - the topic is covered at 150% on the internet. (That said, if you want to talk about this topic, I can speak about it for hours.) It's just my story on how running became a fundamental activity in my life - and I think some people that are in the Mozilla & Python community can relate to what happened to me.

hilarymason.com I spoke at devs love bacon back in April on . The talk is geared toward engineers with no prior knowledge of machine learning, and it’s designed to lay out the basic vocabulary and way that we think about the world to provide an amusing foundation so that attendees will have a head start in investigating which techniques they might want to learn more about or implement. This talk is not an in-depth tutorial.

For many of us developers, WebKit is a black box. We throw HTML, CSS, JS and a bunch of assets at it, and WebKit, somehow.. magically, gives us a webpage that looks and works well. But in fact, as my colleague Ilya Grigorik puts it… WebKit isn’t a black box. Paul Irish

Mark Shuttleworth Before I launch into the tongue-twisting topic of t-series terminology I would like to say a few thank-you’s. Saucy, now officially known as Ubuntu 13.10, is a wonderful achievement by a very large and diverse collection of teams and individuals. Each of us is motivated by something different – in fact, we might have very different visions of what the ideal desktop looks like or what the default set of applications should be. But we manage, in the spirit of ubuntu, to work together to make something wonderful like 13.10, which serves the needs and goals of a very large number of people and communities.

I created and curate the 960 Grid System, used by thousands of web designers and developers in their everyday work. I made Formalize, a CSS & JavaScript framework for displaying form elements consistently in multiple browsers. SonSpring by Nathan Smith SonSpring by Nathan Smith
