JIRA is an antipattern
9 dec 15:00 - Atlassian’s JIRA began life as a bug-tracking tool. Today, though, it has become an agile planning suite, “to plan, track, and release great software.” In many organizations it has become the primary map of software projects, the hub of all development, the infamous “source of truth.” It is a truism that the map is not […]

Why you need a supercomputer to build a house
8 dec 19:38 - When the hell did building a house become so complicated? Don’t let the folks on HGTV fool you. The process of building a home nowadays is incredibly painful.

Apple Watch’s ECG feature is already proving its worth
8 dec 19:28 - When Apple announced its latest Series 4 Watch with electrocardiogram features, my mom took a sigh of relief, and then proceeded to set a reminder to order one for my dad.

The nation-state of the internet
8 dec 16:50 - The internet is a community, but can it be a nation-state? It’s a question that I have been pondering on and off this year, what with the rise of digital nomads and the deeply libertarian ethos baked into parts of the blockchain community. It’s clearly on a lot of other people’s minds as well: when […]


Coinbase abandons its cautious approach with plan to list up to 30 new cryptocurrencies
8 dec 07:14 - Coinbase is the most conservative exchange in cryptoland, largely because it operates in the U.S. under the watchful eye of the SEC. The $8 billion-valued company trades fewer than ten cryptocurrencies to consumers but on Friday announced it announced a major expansion that could see it list up to 30 new tokens. The company said it is […]

Listen to the soothing sounds of Martian wind collected by NASA’s InSight lander
7 dec 23:22 - The InSight Mars lander accomplished a perfect landing last week on the Elysium Planitia region of the planet, where it is hard at work preparing to drill into the surface (and taking selfies, of course).
