These have been very easy to create over the last few weeks; there’s been a torrent of reading. Can I say torrent without making it sound like this is all downloaded large files? The word is overloaded. Anyway:
- How emacs changed my life, from I think the creator of Ruby. (via)
- Autodesk uses Creative Commons right.
- British kids in the early 80’s, using computers. Might induce nostalgia for some.
- Forth – The Early Years. (via)
- The Collapse of the Animal Crossing Economy. I am entertained by the intersection of games and economics. (via)
- Tagsistant, a tag-based filesystem. Works via command line, which is unexpected. (via Tim Darby on users@)
- Git and GitHub Secrets. (via)
- IE vs. murder rate. Correlation, rather than causation, but still funny. (via)
- toybox, a BSD-licensed command line environment for Android. I mentally said “so what?” until I saw the “Why is Toybox?” presentation. It’s an excellent talk that makes a sequence of good points about many topics on licensing and utility, and I recommend making time for watching it. (first link via)
- The Confused Deputy, an explanation of capabilities. (via #dragonflybsd on EFNet)
