The first time I stepped inside a medieval cathedral, I realized i didn't know a damn thing about religion. I had lots of opinions. Didn't know a damn thing.

Building your own static site generator from scratch is trivial. I kept wrestling with Jekyll and then woke up and realized that I could just write a few simple functions to do exactly what I wanted. My node.js code is actually shorter than my old Jekyll config file.

Treat every hashtag like it’s part of an intimate psychological survey that’s going to be used at some point down the road by advertisers, governments and god knows who else to sort and trigger you.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you tweet can and will be used against you in a court of public opinion.

Why is there next to no consensus on what we should eat? We've sequenced the human genome but we're still arguing over whether meat is bad for you.

Food Porn: no taste. no smell. no touch. no cooking. no meal. no calories. no shopping. no clean up. Actually that list more or less works for regular porn as well.

Porn is what you get when you strip an experience of all its context and complexity and treat it as if it was separate from the rest of life.
