I believe I remember seeing that some Merveillians are in Lille? My wife and I are swinging through tonight and tomorrow. Any must see places or favorite little food/drink spots?

I was able to see these guys when they came through Amsterdam a few months ago. Such a great show.

In a historic feat by @EHTelescope & @NSF, a black hole image has been captured for the 1st time. Several of our missions observed the same black hole using different light wavelengths and collected data to understand the black hole's environment. Details: nasa.gov/mission_pages/chandra 

I often think of sectors that are seemingly way technologically behind other areas. I wonder how often that comes into play as we decide what to make in our free time. For me, the answer is not often, but I've been putting a lot of thought into it lately.

Today I was asked at work today why I have an obsession with minimal libraries. I was actually caught pretty off guard by the question, since it was our CTO asking. I tried my best to explain how I believe some of the modern development trends are obtuse and unnecessary and then continued to make a case why minimal libraries often end up with cleaner, less error prone, and easier to maintain code bases. I didn't really get a response, but I can't stop thinking about the interaction.

While I still have a lot to work on, I'm super happy with how my wiki turned out. It's tied directly into my ándaga time tracking system and it's built with 귤, my small wiki engine. I learned tons in this process and can't wait to continually improve and add stuff to it.

Came across this on reddit today. This is insane.

@rutherford after the variable font chat, I found this axis-praxis.org/specimens/, and now I can't stop playing around with it.

Just submitted my first conference talk proposal. Function-As-a-Service? Demystifying serverless deployments with Zeit Now.

Here is to stepping out.
