When ISIS Hacks your Website

The voice on the other end of the line was panicked. He didn’t know how it happened… only that his organization’s website had been hacked by ISIS. A mix of shock and anger, he urgently pointed me to the URL. I entered the web address and was greeted by the page below. As the page loaded, middle-eastern music began playing. I performed ...

100 Days of Github: Don’t Break the Chain

A while back I stumbled across John Resig’s blog post about writing code everyday. He made several points that resonated with me. I thought I would follow John’s lead and try a more balanced approach to programming. I set a goal to commit to Github every day for 100 days. The sad screenshot below will give you an idea of where ...

Since I didn’t become active on GitHub until recently, you’ll need to wait a few moments for the player to reach my contributions.

Editor Wars: Picking the Right Tool for the Job

As the development application space has undergone a Cambrian explosion of sorts, it’s easy to feel like we are drowning in tools. Since this time last year, I’ve worked within a dizzying number of editing applications. I’ve tried newcomers like Atom.io, LightTable, ShiftEdit, and Koding, as well as established editors Xcode, Visual Studio, DreamWeaver, Sublime Text, and WebStorm. I’ve even experimented ...

Bitcoin

I felt foolish the first time I exchanged “real money” for digital money. It was about four years before Bitcoin, and some friends and I were playing a silly little MMORPG called Dofus. After initial skepticism, I’m embarrassed to say we all become hopelessly addicted. This wasn’t due to the game’s battle mechanics, so much as the game’s underlying ...
