  1. Extended Date Time Format (Library of Congress)

    Creating a spec for dates, including uncertain dates, approximate dates, unkown parts of dates, dates with years beyond (+/-)9999, seasons.

  2. Who’s On First · Mapzen

    On making, basically, a database of places. You don’t need to understand the technical details to get a sense of the huge difficulties in translating these odd human concepts into something more computery. From August 2015. (via @simonw)

  3. Code highlighting for Keynote presentations

    Surprisingly painless and useful. Which isn’t to say entirely painless, but less than expected.
