Wednesday, November 19, 2014Persimmons?
Thanksgiving Recipes Across the United States - NYTimes.com - Indiana is represented by Persimmon Pudding?! I've never ever heard of such a thing. Twitter
Technically Speaking by Chiu-Ki and Cate - My friend Cate is one of the founders of this newsletter sharing Calls for Proposal from tech conferences as well as information about public speaking. I've already found some useful links in the first two issues. You can also follow them on Twitter.
Google Fit Developer Challenge - I've been playing around with Apple's HealthKit and it's got some nice features. I wonder what the Android devs will come up with? (I also note that Withings gets a big nod, while Fitbit's anti-integration stance presumably kept them out.)
Tuesday, November 18, 2014WHAT THE HELL, BARBIE.
Pamie » Barbie Fucks It Up Again - Well, crap. I actually own a Computer Engineer Barbie. I won it at a Girl Geek event at Google three years ago. She's been sitting on my desk at work ever since, still pristine in her box. I loved her pink laptop and her jaunty Bluetooth headset and her sensible sneakers. And now I can't even look at her! HOW COULD YOU LET ME DOWN, BARBIE. Ugh. Instagram
Scalpers target The Fat Duck - WTF. I can't believe I missed out because I was honest and only entered once. The Terms said you had to register for the ballot under your own name and couldn't sell the ticket. They should make people show IDs that match when they turn up. Jerks.

What does the “plus sign” do in the new Spotify? - This was frustrating the hell out of me. I liked starring things.
Movie Review: 'Atari: Game Over' digs up a great story in a mass grave of game cartridges - GeekWire - Is anyone selling these cartridges on eBay yet? Because I would 100% buy one. (We had that game as a kid.) previous week
