This MIT efficiency apartment feels so much like a hotel room that I keep worrying a cleaner will walk in. Of course that’ll never happen :(
@fullstackTO @mulpat sorry, I'm cutting down speaking until June 2015. Thanks tho!MIT Orientation about to start #mitorient http://t.co/zNG4zJecUm@tanya @paulcbetts @githubhelp @github Alternatively, use the dabblet installation at @WebPlatform that is constantly logged in as that acct@tanya @paulcbetts @githubhelp @github Maybe create an account for the workshop and give them the credentials?@tanya @paulcbetts @githubhelp @github Would it be possible to tell your students to set up accounts?@tanya @paulcbetts @githubhelp @github I contacted Github support, like I suspected nothing can be done about it :/
How true this is http://t.co/7VzhLvscud
Retweeted by Lea Verou@tanya @GitHubHelp can't afford to use server as proxy for everything. Wouldn't be able to handle the load.@tanya @GitHubHelp a rate limit of 60 for unauthenticated is effin ridiculous! Thanks for noticing.@tanya @GitHubHelp oh I just noticed your sentence. But the requests are client-side, so that would exposing the secret API key. Dumb thing!@tanya this is what it's already doing, at least in theory! @GitHubHelpAt the gate, waiting for the first leg of my flights to Boston for MIT. Sadness about those I’ll miss is currently masking all excitement :(
@tanya Just Github API limits. How are you using Dabblet in workshops? Missed ur earlier tweet, can't find it now.It's two months today since I adopted @juliancheal and @leaverou! It’s been purrrfect! http://t.co/lckEcg8K54

@MarmiteJunction @juliancheal I think we should all start pushing the envelope & leverage our synergies like @brucel https://t.co/iegRQxRI3P
Proving really difficult to order duvets or towels in a color resembling #f06. Pink berry, fuchsia, magenta, everybody calls it sth else!Why do people apologize for emailing “out of the blue”? Isn’t that the whole point of email?@LeaVerou When I left school my maths teacher told us all "Save money on everything you can, except mince and toilet paper"
Retweeted by Lea VerouI wonder who’s more weird: Me buying toilet paper on Amazon, ranked by rating, or the people who actually wrote these ratings…So cute. @adamcatlace loves my deer hide rug! http://t.co/BVWBG1PShw

@brucel I’m so sorry. My deepest condolences :(@plhw3org Happy birthday!!“X to Close” The origins of the use of the [x] close button in UI design. https://t.co/N6WNcT8jLn Some pretty awe-inspiring history there.
@PredBeau LOL I think we have an epic case of missing the point entirely. /@brucel@georgeharito @geekyjohn Not consciously.So this just appeared today. I have no idea where it came from. #lolwut Go home OSX, you’re drunk! http://t.co/suH8uNi5L6
@dudemullet Well, you’re missing out on an amazing article because of that.@ricricucit Well, it was also @bylukemalone’s thesis at @MAcolumbiajourn.The point that society likes to think of itself as vigorously anti-paedophile but does little or nothing useful about it is important.

@modigy @michaelsharer Missing the point a bit. Nobody told u to change the visuals, there are ways to save on weight AND keep the same look@mattwilcox @sil s/winter/summer/@sil @mattwilcox And yet I find it very confusing when I travel to south hemisphere countries… “Ok December is winter. What’s March again?”@sil I’m saying, IF it ever happened (and that’s a big IF), early adopters would be entire countries, not people. What One World Government?@sil I assume it would be done per country, not per person, so there would be no such thing as individual “early adopters”.@sil What does that experiment prove? That living in a different time as anyone else around you makes life hard? Relevance?@sil It’s a theoretical argument anyway, so backwards compat doesn’t matter. It’s not like it’s could happen anytime soon, hence the “but…”@sil All these are just existing conventions. “Midnight” is just a word. We could call it something else.The case against time zones: They're impractical & outdated http://t.co/y4DLx1FPMm by @mattyglesias Interesting idea, but…Just five more minutes.

Retweeted by Lea VerouInteresting read, especially the part about i18n: How Limitations Led To My Biggest App Store Success and Failure http://t.co/6nDEQ4xyC7@vhgalvao E.g. I type: js "foooofooo".match(/fo+/g) Alfred returns: ["foooo", "fooo"] Return copies to clipboard (or runs it in a browser)@vhgalvao Same things as what you can do in a browser console, minus all the APIs. Basically, Ecmascript.@ouebdave @_mestevens That would be a temporary problem. Eventually, a much more fair & balanced (than today) equilibrium would be reached.@_mestevens @csuwildcat Yeah, I love that quote. It’s one of my favorites.@jongold @scott_riley Of course you can. There was a WebKIt bug, but was fixed ages ago.@kkaslis Oh, I assumed that by “US immigrants” you meant American immigrants in other countries.@timseverien Yes, but they also weren’t using the resources that tax goes to for all these years.@kkaslis Interesting. So there are more Americans in the EU than Europeans in the US, and yet the US has the strictest immigration policies.@kitchencolors #f06@timseverien The whole idea that natives should be privileged over expats just because they happened to be born there is irrational.@kkaslis You actually added all the EU countries in both pages?.@_mestevens Humans are irrational & rarely question what feels good. Belongingness is a primary human drive and borders fulfil that need..@_mestevens Totally agree. IMO being able to live wherever you want should be a basic human right. But I’m in the minority on this. :(@skoua You don’t, but same applies to visas.@_mestevens Completely agree, but not sure what it has to do with my tweet?@chris__martin Are you being sarcastic or you actually think that’s a real concern? Sorry to ask, but you know, Poe’s law.@kkaslis Doesn’t matter, EU is the same when it comes to immigration. Americans get an EU visa, not a Greek visa. So that would be EU too.@nomothetis And if your person wanted to go back, you’d have a deadline to find another one, or be deported. Cruel, but so are visas.@nomothetis Not really. Many Americans want to move to the EU, many Europeans want to move to the US. Win-winDon’t understand why countries don’t have “immigration treaties”: Find a person that wants to move to your country & you can move to theirs.What Kind of Logo Do You Get for $5?

Fascinating post by @tabatkins about how our eyes see colors http://t.co/6Og8tP4DiK Totally agree with his conclusion at the end ;)@bendihossan @hayles @juliancheal @gregkare It was late, so it would be used again in the morning. By then, chlorine would’ve done its job.Surprised nobody has made an @alfredapp workflow to run JS. Would be really useful for quickly testing expressions, regexes etc.@hayles @juliancheal @Bendihossan @gregkare Am I the only one who thought it was cute?
