Richly informative while remaining brief and straight to the point.
Solid musings on the current state of hash standards, and how to choose the best path forward: ImperialViolet – Maybe Skip SHA-3
Timing has been my favorite time tracking app for the Mac for years now, because it automatically tracks what I’m working on, so that after a day of juggling tasks I can look back and figure out how much time I spent on each project. This kind of tracking is indispensable for anyone who spends every day switching between multiple billable projects, which is where manual time trackers inevitably fail.
With Timing 2, everything just got better: easier assignment of blocks of time to clients, smarter rules for assigning apps and files to projects, and clearer visualizations for how you spent your time. In the past I’ve always considered logging my time to be a pain, but this app truly makes it a pleasure. Check it out and see!
We’re now more likely to tell our daughters they can be anything they want to be — an astronaut and a mother, a tomboy and a girlie girl. But we don’t do the same for our sons.
Even as we’ve given girls more choices for the roles they play, boys’ worlds are still confined, social scientists say. They’re discouraged from having interests that are considered feminine. They’re told to be tough at all costs, or else to tamp down their so-called boy energy.
If we want to create an equitable society, one in which everyone can thrive, we need to also give boys more choices. As Gloria Steinem says, “I’m glad we’ve begun to raise our daughters more like our sons, but it will never work until we raise our sons more like our daughters.”
That’s because women’s roles can’t expand if men’s don’t, too. But it’s not just about women. Men are falling behind in school and work because we are not raising boys to succeed in the new, pink economy. Skills like cooperation, empathy and diligence — often considered to be feminine — are increasingly valued in modern-day work and school, and jobs that require these skills are the fastest-growing.
Squee! As a long time follower of Maciej’s work, and a former devoted Delicious user, and a current Pinboard user, this turn of events makes me extremely happy.
Even worse, the amount of personal information that people put on social media has made it possible to automate spear phishing attacks, which are devastatingly effective.
Ran the Vermont City Marathon with Travis this year and came in at 3:53:13! Feeling pretty great about that result, since life circumstances meant that neither one of us was able to properly train. This experience was great, but the next race I sign up for will probably be a half.
