I just sent a support email to @github making the following request for better 404 pages:
Your 404 pages are pretty but useless for actually trying to find stuff which is misspelt, moved or gone. Could you consider implementing some of these improvements?
- Show the github header on the 404 page for consistency
- If the path is /real-username/missing-project, show the user’s profile and a list of their repos
- If the path is /missing-username/*, show a search for “missing-username” or at the very least prefill the search box with that text
- Keep track of projects which have moved and do HTTP redirects to their new locations
Thanks for all the great work you’ve done and made possible,

@thatEmil yet another reason not to read dead-tree books about HTML5 :/

There is value to seemingly insignificant atoms of personal content (e.g. the stereotypical what I’m eating/doing/feeling right now) — providing context for more significant pieces of content; self reflection and the creation of new content molecules
Aaron Parecki seems like that would be blurring the line between presentation and behaviour — where do you stop? Weather media queries? Proximity? Acceleration?
@briansuda I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE

It would seem that the @twitter website has endpoints for fetching people who have favourited and retweeted a tweet — again out-doing their API. Example:
Hydro-fold, a 3D printer of sorts.
By adding water to printer ink and printing fold patterns onto regular paper, self-folding origami is possible. Whilst not quite as impressive as conventional 3D printers, the possibility of printing a self-assembling structure with volume from a normal printer is somewhat exciting
