My favourite recurring overheard phrase here at Vísar is “We don’t know what five is”
Tantek Çelik cute :) And nicely done object fallback — I’m guessing that is immediately one of the more accessible comics on the web right now.
Using hand built circuitry I was able to turn my sister into a fully functioning theremin, the idea being that eventually the equipment could be used by dancers to create music that relies entirely on choreography and body movement to generate sound as they dance. In this way the visual performance and the audio become intrinsically linked and thus the viewer is able to ‘see’ the sound as it is created.

Laurent Eschenauer seriously?! Okay, your homework for tonight is to go through every XKCD strip and read the hover text ;)
Aaron Parecki gotta love XKCD :)
sandeepshetty hm, I'd actually say push based systems are super useful (certainly I have personal use cases which are too big for me to want to poll) but PuSH is way too complicated. It’s actually something I’m working on improving, as you did with Pingback => webfinger

One #ux fail I’m seeing more and more is the “we’ve got a different version of this site for your locality! Would you like to go to it?” whole-page overlay on permalink pages. So many problems:
#django tip: if you come across weird inconsistencies between apps when trying to serve static files in dev, run with

@thatemil I’ve always considered style guides/pattern libraries to be unit tests for HTML+CSS, and you could automate them with JS if they get too unwieldy.
This is another, rather bizarre example of WordPress promoting monoculture. Even funnier is this misguided quote from the email:
If you don't already have the WordPress mobile app for your smartphone, you'll want to download it so that you can upload pictures and post to the site right from the party. It would be a good idea to add the site to your mobile app before your party so you don't have to worry about it later.
Paraphrased: “So that you can participate TO THE MAX, post to our hosted silo and download yet another app that you’ll delete straight away”.
Nevertheless, I plan to download the app and try it out as I’ve never used it before and WordPress UX tends to be pretty good. Perhaps then discuss the whole thing in #indiewebcamp on freenode to brainstorm a better way of doing this topic-based aggregation.
