  1. The Beginning of the End of Big Government IT | MetaFilter

    Good discussion of this stuff, with calm defences by danhon and migurski in the face of (understandable) cynicism that sees the private sector as either big, dumb corporates or small, dumb Silicon Valley techbros. (via @neb)

  2. code like you don’t have the time (tecznotes)

    Some good stuff about how to run, maintain and work on projects when the time available is intermittent. I think the bit at the end about “stick to a language’s standard library wherever possible” is important, difficult and perhaps rarely considered.

  3. Managers are awesome / managers are cool when they’re part of your team

    Although I’m up for new kinds of management/company structure, the GitHub/Valve thing of having an extremely flat organisation does make me wary. Not least for the kinds of people who only blossom when given support and shelter by those whose position it is to do that.

  4. Being a client

    A brief bit about the new Code for America website. So worth it for all the Clearleft and pattern library related links. All of them front-end-development gold, leading to even more.

  5. OSM terrain layer (tecznotes)

    Some lovely looking terrain maps, and lots of words I don’t understand. it’s hard to remember what online maps were like only ten years ago, and now the ability to tinker with stuff like this.

  6. Oakland crime maps XI: how close, and how bad? (tecznotes)

    Thought process on making heat maps out of the Oakland Crimespotting data. (via Simon Willison)
