    A book about using Backbone.js (click index.md to read it on one page). Looks good, and better explained than everything else I’ve read today. Wish I’d found this eight hours ago.

  2. Backbone patterns

    One of the few useful and not-entirely-confusing or too-specific things I’ve found about Backbone.js today.

    @alruii I’d only listen to ‘Today’ if I was doing boxing at the gym in the morning and needed something to make me punch harder.

    @abscond @alruii I think there’s a specific “BBC news presenters hide bafflement with mockery” point on the Gartner Hype Cycle chart.

    @abscond Yeah… I’m interested to see what happens, but I can’t think of anything I want to print myself.

    @abscond Nor do I :) Obv, thinking home 3D printing will replace mass production is nonsense. But that doesn’t mean it’s entirely useless.

    @abscond But isn’t that like saying “No one should be allowed to print anything on paper at home. Leave that to the professional printers.”

    3D printing on Newsnight tonight. It's no Tomorrow's Word. Paxman: "It's done this from a drawing, has it?" "Someone has put a drawing in?"
