  1. James Ferguson illustrations | The New York Review of Books

    I love these watercolour(?) caricatures/portraits, the solidity of them. (I also love that the NYRB’s search results can generate results like this for one of their illustrators.)

  2. Git: The Safety Net for Your Projects · An A List Apart Article

    I liked this as a clear and pragmatic guide to some Git stuff. Kind of the next steps once someone’s got to grips with add/commit/pull/push.

    @gwire I’ve never seen that film, so this and Community’s episode based on the film kind of go over my head a bit.

    @tomstuart “What’s the combination to reach out and touch her hair while she’s not looking but think better of it and mournfully pull back?”

    @tomstuart That what Joe said… but those references must be lost on 90+% of the audience.

    @tomstuart I can’t wait for the PS4 co-op version of ‘Before Sunrise’.

    @tomstuart But story aside, the dialogue is so often needlessly hackneyed. (I’m now thinking of both Gears of War and Pacific Rim.)

    @tomstuart But it’s probably also harder to make a decent, long, “interactive” story than a linear film-length story.

    @tomstuart That could be a critique of a large number of Hollywod science fiction films… doesn’t sound like a game-specific problem to me.

    @chrislunch If you cross his field of vision, I hope he does a “Is that Dave?!” double-take.
