Dick is the Vessel

The Multilogue

We talk about the Patriot Act, the French Patriot Act, China’s Great Cannon, and the challenges of technologically illiterate legislators vying to control the Internet — all through a dick PRISM.

Refactoring Asteroids

Refactoring code is a lot like saving the Earth from an asteroid impact. Except way less heroic and incredible.

Brevity vs. Clarity

A List Apart

A lot of commonly-accepted abbreviations exist only because a critical mass of people use them. Is the loss of clarity outweighed by the benefits of a shorter name?

The Open Loophole

The Multilogue

We talk about the challenges of net neutrality, the definition of lawful content, the importance of encryption-enforced privacy, and the unlikely champion of reason and individual rights.

A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

I’m incredibly uncomfortable with the guiding principles of net neutrality. The proposed rules are insidious and will undermine some of the most sacred pieces of the Internet.

Thoughtful Modularity

A List Apart

Most of our projects operate on a smaller scale than a mission to Mars, but there’s a lot we can learn from NASA’s approach to boldly going where none have gone before. NASA is thinking modularly down to the core components of a system, and we should, too.
