Study Hacks The Opposite of the Open Office October 19th, 2016 · 12 comments The Bionic Office A couple weeks ago, I wrote about Joel Spolsky’s claim that Facebook’s massive open office is scaring away talent.

As with the original list, the purpose is to collate some of the best free applications (and sometimes online services) that can be found on the Internet. I spend a lot of time on the Internet (through my work as a web developer) so it's always worth pooling a decent list of resources to those who are more fortunate to have time away from computers.
