I LEGO N.Y. by Christoph Niemann -
"It’s easy to imagine how hard it would be to make something complex out of LEGO bricks. But let me try to convince you that the opposite – making simple things out of LEGO – is just as hard if not harder." - jan zuppinger

Every time an engineer joins Google, a startup dies -
"Whenever I see a brilliant kid decide to join Goldman Sachs, McKinsey, or Google, I think to myself: a startup just died, and as a result our world is a little less wealthy, innovative, and interesting." - Marcel Weiß

The lock-in of Facebook takes away our freedom -
"While Facebook tries to redefine the web to its own platform, forcing both users and developers in, never letting them out. Google adds value to each part of the web, and in most cases tries to open it up as far as it can for its users and developers. Google’s walled garden is the planet and beyond, Facebook is the walled garden, Big difference." - Marcel Weiß

rev=canonical: url shortening that doesn't hurt the internet -
"RevCanonical is url shortening with a twist. Instead of creating its own super short versions of links, it checks to see if the link owner has published a shortened version of the given page using HTML link element. If not, we just return the original URL. And you should bug the link owner about providing a better alternative." - Chris Messina from Mento

"I'm shocked -- shocked! -- to find that there's software running on this computer." - j1m
"It is possible to release a Javascript program as free software, by distributing the source code under a free software license. But even if the program's source is available, there is no easy way to run your modified version instead of the original. Current free browsers do not offer a facility to run your own modified version instead of the one delivered in the page. The effect is comparable to tivoization, although not quite so hard to overcome." --- Isn't that called GreaseMonkey? - Robert Cooper from twhirl
I'd say, have fun coding up your own GMail front-end to swap-in via GreaseMonkey, and then making sure you don't get broken when AJAX interfaces change. :) I suppose there's direct IMAP with Flash or Java bridge. - Ray Cromwell
He actually mentions GreaseFire as one approach. - Jim Norris
Keep in mind we're talking about the same guy who thinks that code running on servers should be forcibly opened up to users of said server (hence the GPL3 fiasco). - Joel Webber
@Joel, well, there's also the idea that giving source code isn't enough. Tivo gave out the source, but they can't allow people to install recompiled firmware that removes broadcast copyright protections (especially on HD) since they'd be sued into oblivion, but RMS demands Tivo hand out the encryption keys needed to install recompiled firmware on Tivo. Seems he'd rather have no Tivo, or Tivo as closed src, rather than allow them to have security. - Ray Cromwell

Coding Horror: Procrastination and the Bikeshed Effect -
"I find that the amount of discussion on a software feature is inversely proportional to its value. Sure, have some initial discussion to figure out your direction, but the sooner you can get away from airy abstractions, and down to the nuts and bolts of building the damn thing, the better off you -- and your project -- will be" - Denis De Mesmaeker

Printing The NYT Costs Twice As Much As Sending Every Subscriber A Free Kindle
"Are we trying to say the the New York Times should force all its print subscribers onto the Kindle or else? No. That would kill ad revenues and also, not everyone loves the Kindle. What we're trying to say is that as a technology for delivering the news, newsprint isn't just expensive and inefficient; it's laughably so." - Marcel Weiß from Bookmarklet
