  • Put a button on your site so you "force" people to log in with Twitter and authorize a "paid tweet" with a link before downloading a file or retrieving a coupon.
  • "WinSCP is an open source free SFTP client and FTP client for Windows. Legacy SCP protocol is also supported. Its main function is safe copying of files between a local and a remote computer.
    Beyond this, WinSCP offers basic file manager and file synchronization functionality. For secure transfers, it uses Secure Shell (SSH) and supports the SCP protocol in addition to SFTP. "

    Apparently this is the ftp client de rigueur nowadays on Windows?

  • "Julia Map is a Julia set renderer built in HTML 5 and JavaScript. Each pixel requires the computation of a series of numbers and a measurement of the convergence or divergence of the series. Each image usually consists of millions of numbers. Modern browsers have optimized JavaScript execution up to a point where it is now possible to render fractals like the Julia sets in a few seconds. "
  • "SNPedia is basically the Wikipedia of genetic information."
  • Developer motivates why he publishes his 23andme result on Github

    "Your genetic data fits in 25 Megabytes of memory – a tiny, tiny fraction of the tiniest USB thumb-drive. This genetic data is the equivalent of 5 MP3 songs, a small website, or 5-7 high resolution digital photos. You can type a Google search for “eye color” and get back a result in less than a second after searching the entire Internet. Why can’t you do that for your genetic data?

    I think programmers, especially Web programmers, can do better."
