  1. I guess today is April 1st, in “new numbers”?

  2. Nah, it actually was launched on Monday, and was more in honor of Programmers Day plus “lifestyle”/quantified startups / TED talks. Klinman is a talented writer who pays a lot of attention to what is happening in tech, and has in the past put together pieces about 3D printing and wearables etc in the many venues he’s written working, like The Onion, so I felt this was a good one (if only an amusement) to share here.

    There will be more pieces like these more directly linked to engineering and design in the future.
