I released a repo on Github on Sunday. And it’s trending today!

All the way down there in the middle ๐Ÿ™‚

Every time I find myself feeling a little silly being buoyed by a small bunch of internet points, I remember all the repos I’ve cloned or required, and where they got me ๐Ÿ™‚

Yesterday, my wife met someone in a pool ride who explained he was working at a start up that displayed pictures of the food in a restaurant, so you would choose which restaurant you would got to depending which pictures of food you liked. Yes – they are building Tinder for plates of food.

The history of the world’s most important drum sample – the Amen drum break. An oldie but goodie, that was just passed my way again.

“Despite being ten years old now [still] hundreds of tracks, dozens of DJs, a number of clubs and events, in effect an entire subculture, based on this one drum loop, I mean, based on these six seconds from 1969.
