I’ve been toying with App.net clients and this one is my current go-to. It’s fast, intuitive, and includes notifications. Overall, it’s lovely.

Codecademy has introduced a Ruby track. It’s currently 5 sections but should be more than enough to jump start the learning curve.

A beautiful app and a great idea. I will use the hell out of this.

A terrific short story from an author gone too soon.

Separated from his older brother at a train station, five-year-old Saroo Munshi Khan found himself lost in the slums of Calcutta. Nearly 20 years later, living in Australia, he began a painstaking search for his birth home, using ingenuity, hazy memories, and Google Earth.
