    “Today the standard has been adopted by all countries in the world except the United States.” I imagine this is not the only occurrence of this sentence on Wikipedia. >.<

      @siracusa We’re discussing adding module-scoped variables named isArray, isFunction, etc. for internal use. The problem with referencing _.isArray, _.isFunction, etc. is they can be redefined. But we’d need to synthesize the names of the local vars, too.

        @siracusa I’m a complete beginner when it comes to Perl, so I’m not surprised that I’m attracted to the shiny/dangerous things.

          Reading http://matt.might.net/articles/perl-by-example/, I saw this: ${"x"} = 10 ; print $x ; # prints 10 Mind blown. I’ve wanted to create variables dynamically many times. I hope @siracusa devotes another episode to programming languages at some point.

            So long, Upthere. It’s been fun. I’m looking forward to my first day at Plaid on Monday. https://plaid.io/

              Each day this week I’ve encountered a different bug in Google Chrome. Variety is the spice of life, as they say!

                Some things to keep in mind while reading corporate 'PRISM denials': - Note usage of language: 'direct access' vs. access at all, 'willingly', 'knowingly' - The NSA is not a branch of law enforcement - it's military - No specific denial of working w/ NSA

                  This American Life’s “This Week” paints a distressing picture of eroding civil rights in the US. Lies about widespread government spying, Guantanamo Bay detainees remaining imprisoned after being acquitted, more state executions in Florida. Free country?

                    Though I’ve discovered that “productize” is actually a word, I take exception to it. Or rather, I exceptionize it.

                      I’m surprised to see AAPL stock down less than 1% today. Usually it gets hammered in the wake of a series of incredible product announcements.

                        @danielpunkass In the latest @coreint you explained blocks for “non-Mac/iOS developers who for some reason listen to this show”. I’m one such listener, and have been for several years. Don’t ask me why!

                          @danfrakes @lexfri @manton I should say “map” rather than “remap”, since shift on its own is a no-op by default.

                            @danfrakes @lexfri @manton Remapping left shift (on its own) to “(” and right shift to “)”. This really helps when writing code.

                              @manton @danfrakes @lexfri Several months ago I read Steve Losh’s post “A Modern Space Cadet”, which is brimming with useful ideas. I now make use of the right shift key, but it’s the shift-parentheses trick I now couldn’t live without.

                                jQuery is fucked beyond repair. Here’s the latest gem I encountered: > $.map([1, 2, 3], function(n) { return [n, n] }) [1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3] Underscore, of course, behaves sanely: > _.map([1, 2, 3], function(n) { return [n, n] }) [[1, 1], [2, 2], [3, 3]]

                                  Git just surprised me. What’s new? Git just surprised me in a *good* way.

                                    Why does @dan agree by saying “No, that’s exactly right…” rather than starting with “Yes” like a gentleman? Is it a regional thing?
