Retrospective of a year writing C code again (for those not also on twitter): http://floooh.github.io/2018/06/02/one-year-of-c.html
I've been skeptical of *completely* eliminating coding tests from interviews, but this article is thoughtful and has a lot of useful, specific suggestions for how interviewing can work without them. http://pete.holiday/blog/2018/05/killing-the-coding-interview
Continuing my latest blog series: learn about a second way to interpret normal vectors and their transformation properties! http://reedbeta.com/blog/normals-inverse-transpose-part-2/
Some inspiring work on cancer immunotherapy right here in Seattle! https://www.seattletimes.com/pacific-nw-magazine/the-hutch-is-closing-in-on-a-cure-for-cancer/
This doesn't mean much since there is very little chance for the House to vote for it, or Trump to sign it. But it's nice to see anyway. https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2018/05/senate-votes-to-overturn-ajit-pais-net-neutrality-repeal/
Nice going, FDA! 👌👌
FDA to start naming names of pharma companies blocking cheaper generics
This sounds like a great course, and something like it should be part of every undergrad CS program (ideally woven into other CS courses as well).
My college SwEng course was in the top 3 most useful-in-practice classes I took. (Others being architecture & compilers.)

Spring in the PacNW is like:
"Oh it's nice today, I don't need my hoodie"

"Oh it's gray today, I don't need my sunglasses"
*2 minutes later*
"Oh I should've brought my sunglasses"

A cool example of human evolutionary adaptation: the Bajau people of SE Asia apparently acquired a gene mutation for a larger spleen, enabling them to hold their breath longer and dive deeper. https://www.seattletimes.com/nation-world/bodies-remodeled-for-a-life-at-sea/
FTW = for the win
FWT = friends with tails
TFW = that feeling when
TWF = that was funny
WFT = wild for tea
WTF = what the fuck
This sounds like an interesting way of threading the needle. I obviously don't love the idea of ads showing up in my browser, but keeping the personalization private and client-side is maybe a non-terrible way to do it. https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2018/05/firefox-will-show-sponsored-content-thats-personalized-but-private/

• Throwing it out
• Repeating this process until you die
