Digest for 5 April 2013

with some comments, maybe.

Today marks 50 years until first contact with the Vulcan.

The Mozilla Javascript team posted a really interesting article explaining how the SpiderMonkey engine works and what they just did to make it better.

I finally got around to reading an article which turned out to be one of the better analyses of the social media phenomenon. I call it an analysis because it doesn't say "social media is a Bad Thing", like a lot of the more sensational article-writers (including myself, at times) do. It talks more about how some patterns of social media are Bad Things, which is more constructive since it can lead to ways to fix those patterns.

Bad Catholic published a guest post with perhaps the single best explanation of the Catholic obsession with the Virgin Mary that I've ever read.

And finally, I've decided that I am going to start posting digests (like this one) with links to interesting articles and some remarks on them.
