@davidcmoulton Yeah, I'm good thanks! Hows things with you? I'll be at Cambridge Uni for a meeting about the thing we're making next month!@davidcmoulton Thanks! It is using Ethnocentric, and was made by Greg Homola for our hack day project. http://t.co/YRC0XH8bAkEver wondered how your weather compares to the weather on mars? Well wonder no more! http://t.co/n3XV006GpU #hackday @mendeley_com

Troubling times for the UK Government. Anti gay MPs representing culture and equality. https://t.co/4zSHyHbsvh@sturobson Absolutely, once bleeding edge becomes cutting edge! I'm normally an early adopter, but not this time!@sturobson Even running gulp (compiling SASS etc) will likely take a lot longer, but I need to check.@sturobson My guess is that the experience would suck. I wanted to love the new MacBook, but it wouldn't work for me.@subcide @stef Yep, exactly@stef Actually Mendeley's "groups" functionality is exactly that, though I suspect you meant for books not research! Amazon wish list?@stef The team I'm on are about to embark on this exact thing, so I have lots of reading to do too!Playing around with Wolfram's Image Identify and it really works, most of the time. Exciting stuff! https://t.co/u81zlNgkee

@alexhardy @quiffboy Yes, but depending on budget most agencies would create a team with a UX designer, visual designer, FE dev, BE dev.@alexhardy @quiffboy Yeah. When it comes to my personal site, then I'm full stack. On a hack day, maybe (but then I probably use an API).@quiffboy @alexhardy Well my stack was SQL → PHP → HTML, so even simpler!@alexhardy @quiffboy But back then we were all webmasters!@alexhardy @quiffboy Before I specialised, when I was first starting out, I may have called myself "full stack".@alexhardy I love that T-Shaped individuals can also be referred to as a "Renaissance Developer". What a great job title! /cc @adactio@alexhardy I'm not sure being "full stack" is a good thing personally. Best to be "t-shaped" http://t.co/OQdMscvnfW@alexhardy Not really - full stack doesn't include design (well not the visual sort). It's about everything from back end to front end.@smcllns The Hyperloop of course! http://t.co/UctzFZyEWL

@dannybirchall Probably no April Fool (though I'm very gullible), but yes, people are lazy, especially those who can afford to be.@stewbirch I agree! We all want convenience though, so this thing will probably happen.If you though Amazon Dash was an interesting vision of the future, take a look at this: https://t.co/HhCWx4ve4F

Have you run workshops before?@jesslynnrose I know mandrill just added support for handlebars, which looks cool! http://t.co/uNwon1uX9R@jesslynnrose Not sure, they've been taught pure HTML before, but they may be open to templating if it isn't too complex (how to send them?)Does anyone run workshops on how to create HTML emails?

@riklomas Mainly ideas for films. I often wake up with this story. Maybe I should write a screenplay! Also occasionally product design.@riklomas Depending on the idea I often weave it into my work@riklomas I would and have, except most ideas I have are for something completely outside my skill set.@riklomas I love making stuff, but more than that I love working with likeminded individuals. I don't care who had the idea first.@Wordridden @paulrobertlloyd Been there, done that. It sucks. Friends of mine have had breakdowns over it.

So is this! http://t.co/BkYWHtu2lR@subcide @daringfireball Perhaps so, but often when anyone has declared war on something, they've tended to just make things worse.@oswald808 I'm sure they were thinking that if all went to plan then it was good riddance. Maybe not to the company but to the practice.
