Yes we care

Not about the content, but next time someone asks you if "we really need x resource?" you can think about what happens if this project scales 100 fold, 1000 fold etc. Ask for the upper design limit in writing. Good luck with that.

Selfies: How times change

Selfies were easily ignored pics taken by geeks. then a couple of PR people touted celebrity selfies, uncool dinosaur news organizations, desperate for some attention and to get down with the kids, jumped on board and suddenly they're cool.

You knew Instagram went to shit the moment you searched for, say, #ledlightbulb or #tescovalue, and nearly all the pics returned were selfies.
