Happy Father's Day! I'm celebrating in the usual way ... by eating and drinking a lot :)
Awakening. A stunning 4K time-lapse video from New Zealand. Want. To. Go. Also a great soundtrack :)
Philip Greenspun: If Piketty is right about rich people getting high returns, why do banks lend at low rates? Good question. The math doesn't seem to match the reality.
Meanwhile: Brazil's fight against deforestation has been a surprising success. Wow, indeed surprising. Good for them!
When will the bass drop? Awesome. And ... pretty accurate :)
Beyond the stack. Hmmm. This is taking something evolutionary and casting it as something brand new, which always makes me suspicious. I don't think the cloud is a "platform"; it's simply a way of delivering existing platforms like Linux / PHP / MySQL in a more efficient, scalable way. Right?
Tim Bray: trusting browser code. "It would be useful if you could really trust code running in your browser. It’s not obvious that this is possible; but it’s not obvious that it isn’t, either." A useful analysis.
Trading Private Bergdahl. Brutal. It's not so much that I disagree with the trade, as that I'm embarrassed that my government is so clueless and unprepared. It's like little boys pretending to be men.
Turkish Airlines' award winning ad: Selfie Shootout. It's pretty great.
So, did Eugene pass the Turing Test? My instinct is ... NO. This is a false accomplishment by false people.
Tipping point: Microsoft Azure sponsors Daring Fireball. Seriously. This shows me that Satya Nadal gets it.
You're getting old! If you don't believe it, check out this website... yikes!
Happy Father's Day!
