  1. HINT.FM: The Art Of Reproduction

    I like this idea - making a famous image out of a mosaic of different versions of it found online - but i hate that needless faux-3D tiled effect. Odd. (via The Online Photographer)

  2. How You Can Help Save Upcoming.org, Posterous, and More

    Solely for the phrase “companies like Yahoo work to destroy as much human history as possible.” Must suck to work somewhere like that.

  3. Boys Clubs

    Highlighting all the 100% male boards, etc, etc. Very good. Also: Tumblrs as a hyper-focused lens on the rest of the web. (via Waxy)

    From an unscientific sample, it appears that no web developers know what they’re doing. Phew.

    @Alby My imposter syndrome never shuts up.

    @alicebartlett Only if you don’t tell Nick about me.

    @pixellent @chrislunch 3rd way: Convince authorities they are terrorists & call in targeted strike. Risky, but if it avoids social contact…

    @knolleary I hear “CompSci grads wonder what happened to all the myahmyahmyah and blahblahblah they (we) had to learn.” :)

    @mattb Phew, I’ll carry on bumbling around then :)

    @pixellent You’re going to have to brick up all your windows. It’s the only possible, reasonable solution.

    Do CompSci-trained web devs always think “I have no idea what I’m doing, I’ll get found out!” or is it only self-taught arts grads (ie, me)?

    @secretbean No idea tbh. I only read a couple of subreddits via rss and, by whatever means, they are hospitable.

    @ade_oshineye Thanks. I’ll bear them in mind next time I’m writing something from scratch (unlike today).

    @stewartdawson I use the languages that enable me to collaborate with colleagues.

    @secretbean I see two Reddits: the bad one that gets the press, and the other one that provides useful discussions on focused topics.

    @ade_oshineye But you still usually have to understand the back-and-forth of OAuth.

    Spend weekdays failing to understand OAuth in Ruby / Spend weekends failing to understand OAuth in Python.
