- The Nerd Merit Badge for Full Stack Web Developer – A worthy earning. I love the pancake motif they chose as well.
- Chase Jarvis shoots a music video that’s badass – Rockstar photographer Chase Jarvis decided to personally fund his directoral debut for a Seattle band called The Blakes. Stunning cinematography and a great behind-the-scenes video to boot. Thanks, Brad!
- Put This On – A web series about dressing like a grownup. Great content. Nice, informative, short videos that remind me slightly of This American Life videos.
- Alter G treadmill from space – What do you get when you mix NASA technology with the basic (and horrible) sport of running? How about a treadmill that allows you to run at a portion of your body weight, thus making running much less painless and easier to recover from. The future is here! (*except for that whole ‘flying car’ thing they promised).
- Ubuntu’s newest OS – On thing always kept me from being an uberdork in the computing world–I never ran a Linux box at home. But lately fedup with slow Microsoft operating systems I decided to dual-boot my old laptop (with Windows 7 on it) into Ubuntu 9.10. Needless to say I’ll be uninstalling Win7 and am installing Ubuntu (7.10) on my old server because I like it so much. Turns out Linux isn’t all command line mumbo jumbo like I assumed.
