I know I’ve been away from this site for a little bit. The move took just about everything out of me; I’ve spent just about every free minute I have either moving boxes, unpacking boxes, filling boxes, breaking down boxes, or basically anything else you can do with boxes. The furniture is built and everything is hooked up, the only remaining piece being the new router. I have some photos from some adventures Sydney and I went on in the interim that I need to put together into some posts, but that will probably have to wait until we get back from LA next week.
Anyway, here are the links:
- New research shows early human fossils in Western Africa dated at 300,000 years old, much earlier than the previous oldest fossils found in East Africa.
- A short example of how reducing nesting can improve code readability and maintainability.
- US oil exports jump as fracking unleashes more crude onto the global market.
- Apple pioneered the voice-assistant category, but now it finds itself in third place to Amazon and Google.
- The four stages of team development.
- A nice breakdown of the “cargo cult” syndrome of small organizations mimicking larger ones.
