It’s time to clear out some of the backlog of interesting things I’ve read or seen recently. Enjoy!
- I’m not sure I agree with the always-awesome Becky Furuta in this post about hypothetically trading diabetes and its benefits for not having it, but it’s certainly worth thinking about.
- And Céline provides even more food for thought concerning a possible benefit of diabetes in “Moderate Excess”, which rings true, no matter how much I hate to admit it.
- Best two-minute
Internetshort film of all time? Peut-être.
- Where are the best places for cats to sleep? Let Pusheen show you.
- The best pastries in Paris. I want to eat them all.
- Speaking of food, this article from the American College of Sports Medicine provides lots of details about the current research on nutrition and athletic performance. (Diabetes not required.)
- Uncle Bob Martin on why software estimation is so hard. (Tip: Try to identify procedural/functional units and estimate those.)
- The 2nd edition of Nicolai Josuttis’s The C++ Standard Library, covering C++11, is here. Scott Meyers reviewed it, and I bought my copy. Hey, it’s my day-job.
