…how that philosophy led us to choose the Apache License for Che f. That blog post was our way of laying the foundation for the kind of community we wanted to build, and for guiding our own decisions as a company around how we were going to behave. It essentially boiled down to 3 things:

Neil deGrasse Tyson explains why words, names, and labels matter.

"The universe is hard enough. The last thing the universe needs is a complex lexicon laid down between the communicator and the listener to confuse them about what it is they're trying to listen to."

Listen to how he contrasts the words, names, and labels used in astrophysics compared to biology and chemistry.

Choose your words carefully - especially if you want other people to be touched by them. They have wide-ranging impact.

There are a bunch of ways to become a better designer. But here's a way you probably haven't thought much about: learn to program.

Design is about solving problems, making things clearer, and making things work better. However, your designs don't help anyone until they work . This is usually where a programmer comes into the picture. They make your designs work. But don't you want to be able to do that?

I do. That's why I'll be taking the all new Rails for Designers …

Our proud winner Daniel F. shows off his iPad2

After all that hard work, it was time to cut loose a little. We celebrated our real user monitoring release by co-hosting a party with Blue Box Group and Pivotal Labs at Alewife . Alewife has a very special place in our hearts, as the night before our big announcement of RUM, our hard working developers officially launched the product there (because all great moments in history happen over a pint). The turnout …

I haven't met someone who doesn't like Uber . Drivers included. Every time I take a ride with Uber I chat up the driver to see how they like it. They love it. They rave about it. They feel liberated. They feel in control. They feel modernized . And they love getting paid faster (and more - Uber takes a smaller cut than a traditional limo/car company).

But what I really love about Uber is how they've smartly focused the full experience on the ride , not the ride plus a transaction.

I recently ordered some stuff from Nuts.com .

During checkout, they offered upgraded heat-resistant packaging to help prevent melting due to the hot weather. That was a great step. That alone is more than most would do.

However, then they went the extra mile.

Right before the final checkout step, they explained that the upgraded packaging is good for about two days, but since I ordered on a Friday, my shipment might sit at the UPS / Fedex warehouse over the weekend which would …
