An intervention for ActiveRecord - Leo
An interesting slide deck by Ernie Miller from this week's RailsConf 2013 on ActiveRecord's inherent ugliness. Featuring a cameo appearance by our very own Murray Steele on slide 99. Definitely looking forward to watching the video when it comes out.
Toyota, Respect for People (or “Humanity”) and Lean - Ben Wong
- “respect for people is the attitude that regards people’s ability to think most.”

Use GitX? Forget it, try GitXXX - Will
Some lovely person has forked GitX and added all the features we all thought should have been there in the first place. You can now push, pull, rebase, cherry-pick, view source, blame, and history for a repo, use a beautiful new sidebar. It even does a limited kind of syntax highlighting. Forget git towers, it's GitX all the way now.
