You look like shit on the subway - Okay, we're all guilty here. I'm actively trying to smile more on the subway! You should too, but watch this anyway. Slow mo beautifulness in NYC.
Code dot org is a corporate scam - "Industry needs you to be a cog in the corporate machine." Nice, Zuck. But really--programming can be so much more than what these industrio-political buffoons want for you
Django BDFLs stepping down - I don't think the project will change much as a result, but I can't help feeling like Django is on its way out. The advice I universally received when asking around (not just on the Internet, but IRL) about Python web frameworks: learn Django if you want a boring corporate job somewhere--otherwise start with Flask to get your feet wet. That's what I did, and it's awesome, but I'm starting to love Tornado now. What it lacks in beauty and simplicity it makes up for in real-timey-ness.
