Four short links: 22 November 2010

  1. Snippet -- JQuery syntax highlighter built on Syntax Highlighting in JavaScript. Snippet is MIT-licensed, SJHS is GPLv3.
  2. Fear of Forking -- (Brian Aker) GitHub has begun to feel like the Sourceforge of the distributed revision control world. It feels like it is littered with half started, never completed, or just never merged trees. If you can easily takes changes from the main tree, the incentive to have your tree merged back into the canonical tree is low.
  3. Product Invention Workshops (BERG London) -- Matt Webb explains what they do with customers. Output takes the form, generally, of these microbriefs. A microbrief is how we encapsulate recommendations: it’s a sketch and short description of a new product or effort that will easily test out some hypothesis or concept arrived at in the workshop. It’s sketched enough that people outside the workshop can understand it. And it’s a hook to communicate the more abstract principles which have emerged in the days. Their process isn't their secret weapon, it's their creativity, empathy, and communication skills that make them so valuable.
  4. OneMicron -- Janet Isawa's beautiful animations of biological science. (via BoingBoing who linked to this NYTimes piece)

Four short links: 15 February 2010

  1. Tale of Android Phone in Earthquake in Haiti -- guy in Haiti with working unlocked Android phone and Internet connection used it to channel Facebook "save me" requests to rescuers. (via Andy Linton)
  2. Microsoft Operating Income by Division -- the title says "income", the graph says "profit", but either way the online division of Microsoft isn't healthy. (Love the small Vista tick and large Windows 7 tick).
  3. SVG Editor in the Browser (via kevinmarks on Twitter)
  4. Algorithmic Recruitment with Github -- crawling GitHub, building in-memory graph of developers, selecting for connectedness and influence.
