So this is a pretty huge blast to the past on how the most popular internet location was back in the 1990s before the web got big.

"We the people" are the first three words of our nation's Constitution, but who were those people in 1787? Dr. Howard Zinn, the renowned, honest historian, states in his best-selling book, A People's History of the United States: "The majority of the 55 men who framed the Constitution were men of wealth in land, slaves, manufacturing or shipping." Clearly, most people were not included in that original draft of the Constitution; no women, Native Americans, poor white men; and, absolutely, no enslaved Africans.

Wow, just wow. These people pushed an original 8088 with CGA (4.77 Mhz with a four color video card) and nothing for sound but a beeping PC speaker and made it do 1024 colors, multi-channel audio, and graphics beyond anything that could be imagined when the original IBM PC was released.

First off, you need to consider the fact that the entire Danish Navy has bar codes on each one of their ships. II's completely expected that upon being presented with this seemingly insignificant piece of top secret information, you may be led to say: "Big Deal? What does this signify?"

"Love isn't a state of perfect caring. It is an active noun like 'struggle.' To love someone is to strive to accept that person exactly the way he or she is, right here and now."

This is such a great interview with Warrel. About half the interview is Warrel talking about his love for kitties and doggies. Fun to see his nice side.

Just like I wanna be years from now in the old folks home - help me die, but don't hold me down. Life had still gotta be enjoyable. Don't be mean just because I still have self-will!

The Front-End/Javascript landscape has become a chaotic Tower of Babel situation. It's changing faster than anyone can keep up and people with merely a years difference in skillsets are having issues even communicating. It's not because people are lazy and not keeping up - you get on a year-long project and start with the latest/greatest and then tune out the world while you get that project completed, then look around at the end of the project and the world doesn't look the same anymore. 90% of the bleeding edge stuff is abandoned a year later. It's to the point of ridiculousness. We need probably slow down a bit and take a look at the things that don’t change all that much. Not only will this improve the quality of our work and the value we deliver — it will actually help us learn these new tools faster.
