Avoiding writing document by reading article about procrastination. Next: finding the exact definition of irony.


10. Procrastination. Some people are unable to act without pressure. They may also look for little things to do in order to put off the big ones.

Team Jizz Mustache, assemble!


We node.js. We Rails Rumble. Combining the two, we got:
Node.js Knockout — a 48-hour node.js coding contest.

Register now!
before it’s too late


August 28 – 29, 2010

about 2 months from now

The coding phase of the competition will begin at Saturday, August 28, 12am GMT and end exactly 48 hours later at Monday, August 30, 12am GMT.


The contest format will be similar to Rails Rumble:

  • Build any web project you can imagine;
  • In 48 hours, starting from scratch;
  • With a team of up to 4;
  • Using node.js and whatever else you want;

To amaze and delight your audience and expert judges, and to earn prizes and glory! More details are coming soon about rules, judging, and prizes.


Contestants may participate from anywhere in the world, but all code must be stored on GitHub, and contest entries must be deployed to Joyent or Heroku. GitHub, Joyent, and Heroku will all be providing free services as sponsors during the competition.


node.js isn’t just another MVC web framework. It’s at the bleeding edge of a technology stack that allows developers to blur the lines between software, the web, and the new like never before.

Whatever the contest winners are, we suspect they won’t look like traditional websites.

How can I help?

For now, spread the word. Recruit your friends for a team. Start thinking of ideas.

If you're interested in sponsoring, judging, or helping out in some other way, definitely drop us a line.

Otherworld: one of those shows nobody else remembers from the 80s

In the comments thread on io9 there's a link to view some episodes online, including the one where the kids make it big by playing Beatles covers, and the v. dodgy man auction.

Warren Ellis » The Scars Of The 1970s

The Scars Of The 1970s

March 26th, 2010 | brainjuice

It’s only in retrospect that I realise the horrors I lived through. I mean, Britain in the 1970s was kind of a beige place, and most things tasted vaguely of plastic, chemicals or that weird, almost flourescent orange "tomato sauce" demon-felchjuice that they suspended Spaghetti Hoops in. We were aware of that. And we liked that the TOMORROW PEOPLE opening theme was spooky and that DOCTOR WHO was a bit sort-of scary sometimes.

It’s only in retrospect that you realise all the children’s programming was made by absolute fucking freaks who should never have been allowed within ten miles of a children’s programming department.

Two pedos and a dead rabbit on sticks. Who thought this was children’s entertainment?

Here comes Bod, in your dreams. Here comes hairless, lipless, alien/human hybrid Bod, in your dreams, for fucking ever.

Things you could get me, say for my birthday, if say, you were my wife.

  • A subscription to Weird Tales
  • Bio Shock for the Mac
  • Any of the books on this list
  • A pair of these (you'll have to find some way of surreptitiously measuring my feet if you want it to be a surprise)
