Friends who've asked me what cold-brew is, how to make it, or if it's easy: this is for you.

I first learned about cold-brewed coffee from author Cory Doctorow's book, Homeland. Simply put, it's coffee that is made the same way one makes cold-brewed iced tea (by leaving the leaves in cold water for a long period of time, rather than in hot water for a short period of time). As Cory puts it, it's "cheap, easy, no-mess", and "the best cup of coffee you're likely to drink this summer".

The Net Neutrality Hysteria by John C. Dvorak:

After years of fear that the government will take control of the Internet, now everyone is begging them to do it. The two liberal commissioners on the FCC pretty much said that problems are coming and rules need to be put in place. This pre-crime thinking will result in regulation that will encroach on everything.

As a kid, I read this comic and laughed (of course). In recent years, however, I've used it as a bit of advice. I'm not as crazy as Calvin. I don't set the bar for events in my life to be as low as possible, but I also don't assume that whatever I do today is going to turn out to be perfect. 

One can't expect to be flawless, so don't let it get you down when you're not.

I've noticed that lots of sites that are otherwise responsive don't have responsive videos. Here's what you can do to make your site have video embeds that are always the width of the container.
