  1. High Scalability - High Scalability - Tumblr Architecture - 15 Billion Page Views a Month and Harder to Scale than Twitter

    Amazingly detailed description of how Tumblr scales. I don’t understand half of this but it sounds exciting. (via @simonw)

  2. Ralph Lauren Purple Label

    Taking apart a $4,625 Ralph Lauren coat. Fascinating, and I’d love to read more things like this.

  3. Open Mike: Grumpy’s World

    I love this exchange. It’s like dialogue from a play or movie that I would be enthusiastic about.

  4. Recliner Chairs | Scandinavian Comfort Chairs

    These don’t look beautiful (scroll down for the varieties) but having tried one, they are very, very comfortable.

  5. A Case Against Using CoffeeScript ☃ Ryan Florence Online

    I’ve never used CoffeeScript, but I just enjoy reading nicely-written articles about code like this. (via Dotcode)
