From my letter to my best Australian friend: Thinking a lot about the horrific massacre in the Colorado movie theater last night. I wouldn’t say I’m struggling with it. I know these things happen in modern-day America. I’m thankful it wasn’t worse (bad though it is.) I look for silver linings, and I think these things do generate more discussion. Although we’ve had a few decades of this...

I’m...

When you spend a lot of time reading on the internet, you forget to ignore comments on articles. I do, at least. What this means is that sometimes you run into comments that are really hilarious (while still being offensive.) Like this one. So what I need is a couple of developers who have experience with plug-in design. Hell, if we have to use kickstarter to get this project moving, I’ll...
