Time for a morning #happy post!
Three interesting github repos I came across:
- pressly/imgry : On-demand image resizing in golang
- bloomberg/powerfulseal : A chaosmonkey for Kubernetes
I really enjoyed @micahflee's article Snowden’s New App Uses Your Smartphone To Physically Guard Your Laptop. It made me go down the rabbit hole of trying to find a cheap Android phone. I didn't find a great list or answer, but Best Budget Phones of 2017 was alright.
Speaking of which, I feel like I'm just lost in "Best Of" articles. One that I actually enjoyed reading about was The Best Electric Skateboard from @wirecutter. I also enjoyed their The Best Things We Bought in 2017.
I enjoyed All Songs Considered's The Year In Music 2017.
Two nice 2017 articles from the @recursecenter community:
Speaking of @recursecenter, I was really excited to read about RC Pop-up: Two weeks of collaboration and focused work on generative art. I really wanted to attend this, but the timing wasn't quite right. That being said, I am really happy it had such a positive result!
Unrelated to all of this, I've been doing lots of crypto trading. And as the year is ending, I'm thinking about taxes. Most articles I came across were pretty full of nonsense, but Coinbase's Taxes FAQ was pretty good.
I was really excited to see my college town featured in the NYT: How Tech Expanded From Silicon Valley to Bubblegum Alley.
A flattering review of some content on my work's website, Topic: Maria Bamford Is Here To Help You Through The Christmas Blues. Also on Topic, I enjoyed You are good at things.
Finally, I'll leave you with Mansplaining, Explained. Because it's the comic we all need.
Have a great holiday!
