Friday Links 24-16

Alice in Wonderland themed tea mug with writing "Drink me"
This week, the "City in A Bottle" JavaScript demo blew me away. 

The podcasts in the leadership section are also pretty good. 


Albert Strasheim, CTO at Rippling, on Embracing Rapid Iteration and Setting Goals for Accountability [Podcast] - interesting ideas about project management and also insights into our competition.

A company is not a family with Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky [Podcast] - I didn't know the origin of the name! I also think that overcommunication is a good thing. I am working on that. 

How Can I Set the Right Boundaries in a New Job? [Podcast] - another great coaching session.


Why, after 6 years, I’m over GraphQL - I have always been sceptical.


What does China's green tech revolution mean for the world? [Podcast] - for some reason, they focus on the negative.

What are PFAs? Everything you need to know about the ‘forever chemicals’ surrounding us every day - we are all plastic!

Random Tea

For seven years, I have been caffeine-free. Here’s how it has changed me - I can't remember when I stopped, probably around that time.

Remembering ICQ: A Page Out of History - I don't have that rosy memories. I am from the IRC generation.

Heura Launches Plant-Based Butcher’s - I really like Heura's products. This is a gimmicky way of marketing products.

City In A Bottle – A 256 Byte Raycasting System - this is just remarkable.

The Space Quest II Master Disk Blunder - oops.

Google: Stop Trying to Trick Employees With Fake Phishing Emails - I am not a big fan of tricking employees either.

The greatest clock (and map) ever made [YouTube] - definitely not the greatest. Pretty good, though.
