  1. What can a technologist do about climate change? A personal view.

    From November 2015. I don’t feel any less useless but it’s a great way to present a piece of writing. If only every news article had such clear extra context.

  2. Untangling the Tale of Ada Lovelace—Stephen Wolfram Blog

    Nice summary of Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage. I realised how little I actually knew about them. (via @cityofsound)

  4. The tech of PIXAR part 1: Piper – daring to be different | fxguide

    Lots of handy, funny, tips. (via someone, a while back)
