What's making me happy 2016-08-14

By Nat Welch

Sunday #happy link post.

One day, I will meet @jxnblk, until then I can just marvel at all the cool stuff he puts out, like the most recent gravitons.

This is so beautiful. I’m just in awe. Anna Wintour’s Wild Garden.

My work has a podcast now. The first episode is @HillaryClinton talking to @maxlinsky. It’s neat.

@aaronpk, of #indieweb fame, wrote a nice article titled “Why I Live in IRC”. It’s a year old, but still great.

How to Have Healthy Relationships as a Developer is an article that I like on work/life balance.

The US Goverment released their Federal Source Code Policy. Great steps in the right direction.

I’ve only skimmed it, but Human collective intelligence as distributed Bayesian inference looks to be a fun paper.

Kids can now learn to code with Pocky, the delicious Japanese snack”. What a time to be alive.

I Peeked Into My Node_Modules Directory And You Won’t Believe What Happened Next” was interesting because on first read through, I didn’t realize it was satire, and started researching all of this, only to realize I have a really low opinion of the Javascript community.

What can architects learn from No Man’s Sky?” is a decent think piece. I always love the concept that video game design can affect the real world.

Have a great week!
