John Hallmén is a Swedish photographer who takes those incredible macro photos of insects. I’m sure some folks get grossed out about stuff like this but I find the minutiae and details of nature to be endlessly fascinating. via Pocket

The internet is a massive repository of information, from the profound to the mundane. Far too much stuff for a single human to handle, so we prefer to get our facts chosen for us, by newspapers, experts or friends. Increasingly these facts are supplied via social media, such as twitter or Facebook. via Pocket

I'm combining elements from two very different projects I started.. In +Subsurface, I originally used XML as the save file format, because while it is probably the worst format ever designed, it's what other projects used, and subsurface wasn't originally really capable enough to stand on its own. via Pocket

Refactoring With LZ77: Compression Is Compilation (?) - Paul Khuong: some Lisp
This post was written under the influence of coffee ice cream and espresso. It’s a magical drink ;) I don’t really follow the compression scene, and only pay minimal attention to machine learning. Nevertheless, the “Compression is Learning” slogan feels more and more right to me. via Pocket

Our Kind of Ridiculous: Yous, Me and Blackness as Probable Cause
When I was twenty-four, I flew paper airplanes past the apartment of a thirty-two-year-old white boy named Kurt in Emmaus, Pennsylvania. Kurt rocked a greasy brown mullet, bragged about ironing his bleached Lee's, and said the word "yous" a lot. via Pocket

302 Moved Temporarily
On paper, training for a 40k time trial looks pretty simple. After all, it is just one long sustained effort, right? During my preparation for 14 or so professional time trial championships, training for these races seemed anything but simple. via Pocket

Inside the Viper Room: Hollywood’s Most Exclusive Poker Game | Vanity Fair
At 6:45 P.M. I stood by the front door and waited. I fidgeted with my dress. I started to feel insecure about how to greet the players. I knew their names, but did that mean that I should introduce myself? Stop it, I said in my head. via Pocket
