The web is awesome

"The open web is a beautiful thing that empowers makers while offering users leverage. There's nothing else like it. It's constantly improving. It's up to you what you do with it."

Why Docker is Not Yet Succeeding Widely in Production

"Docker’s momentum has been increasing by the week, and from that it’s clearly touching on real problems. However, for many production users today, the pros do not outweigh the cons. Docker has done fantastically well at making containers appeal to developers for development, testing and CI environments—however, it has yet to disrupt production."

It’s a highly-centralized or­ga­ni­za­tion, based in a part of the world that I don’t much like. I’m not say­ing that’s a bad idea; it seems to be work­ing for them. I’m not even say­ing that it’s a bad idea to do your next start­up in the Bay Area, if you can han­dle the lifestyle. ¶

But I do think the In­ter­net econ­o­my would be bet­ter and more hu­mane if it didn’t have a sin­gle white-hot highly-overprivileged cen­ter. Al­so, soon­er or lat­er that’ll stop scal­ing. Can’t hap­pen too soon.

Rescued Magpie Becomes Lifelong Friend With The Family That Saved Her Life | Bored Panda

After being rescued and nursed back to health by a young family in Newport, Australia, a magpie named Penguin has become a regular visitor and friend at the Bloom family’s home, playing with them and coming in to hide when it rains.

Penguin was discovered flying on the ground near a library in 2013 by Noah, who is now 11. After being nursed back to health by husband and wife Cameron and Sam and their children (Reuben, 13, Noah, 11, Oli, 9), Penguin was allowed to fly free, but still returned often to spent time with the family. She plays catch, saunters through their home and even perches on their shoulders.

The bird waits for the family to leave their home before flying on her own way in the morning, and greets the kids when they get home from school; “It’s like a dog wagging its tail – she sits there in the tree and flaps her wings like she’s excited,” Noah’s father told ABC News.
