A #happy post! Ontime! Huzzah.
I didn’t even know some of these adaptations were coming out, but here is a list of 21 Books to Read Before They Become 2017 Adaptations.
Rayna meets a “robot” is adorable.
When Pixels Collide was an interesting writeup of Reddit’s April Fools joke.
In 2016 U.S. Special Operations Forces Deployed to 138 Nations, 70% of the World’s Countries is just an interesting read. It all makes sense, but sometimes you forget what all of those DoD $ are going to.
Seattle’s SR 99 Tunneling Machine Is Finally Done Digging is an update on my favorite infrastructure story of the past few years.
Ubuntu Unity is dead is a story that just kills me because of all the drama that went down when Ubuntu switched to Unity in the first place.
"2018 is the year of the linux desktop!" is funny joke to a certain set of people. I am one of those people.— Nat Welch (@icco) April 5, 2017
‘Ghost in the Shell’: 4 Japanese Actresses Dissect the Movie and Its Whitewashing Twist was a fun read and take on the film.
@nayafia is awesome and is giving away $5,000, no strings attached. This caused me to do a lot of research into what it would take to create a foundation. It’d be really neat to give money away with a little bit of accountability attached to promote people creating cool shit.
Hackers Are Emptying ATMs With a Single Drilled Hole and $15 Worth of Gear. Because no one ever remembers that in technology 80% of the work is maintenance.
Steve Martin’s infamous Empty Booth was left empty on purpose is just a funny story.
Finally, I was pretty sick last week, so spent a day and change binge watching Shokugeki no Soma, which is utterly amazing. It can be a little sexist at points, but in general has amazing writing, interesting action, and totally fantastic.
I hope you have a great week!
