The civic tech community and our Civic Hall/Personal Democracy family lost one of its giants yesterday. Jake Brewer was killed while on a charity bike ride outside of Washington, DC. He was 34 and leaves a spouse, Mary Katherine Hammer, a two-year-old daughter Georgia, and a child on the way.
Critics, including the wife of imprisoned pro-democracy blogger Raif Badawi – sentenced to 1000 lashes for blogging about free speech – say that the appointment is “scandalous” and means that “oil trumps human rights”.
I have something in common with Ahmed Mohamed: as a youngster, I was also an electronics enthusiast. At his age and even earlier, I frequently took apart electronic devices – anything from my own toys, to broken things around the house, and even that dirty garbage-picked black and white TV my parents dragged home that they knew I’d have a blast playing with (I did.)
We’ve been hosting various WordPress installs on the same server, as well as subdomain and subfolder multisites on nginx, but I had to fix a new subsite on a WordPress install that included another WordPress instance as a subfolder.

Volkswagen called them “clean diesels,” branding them as the fun-to-drive alternatives to hybrids as it dominated the U.S. market for the engine technology.

The recently-unveiled Bentley Bentayga SUV is now the first word in luxurious, high-riding motoring. More than that, it is also now the first word in opulent optional extras, as it offers a Breitling clock in the dash that alone costs $170,000. The timepiece in question is no Casio.

A long time ago in a WordPress far, far away sites were customized via the use of a my-hacks.php file. Then 2005 came along and brought with it a new developer feature: Plugins and Themes. For the last ten years, there has been an option to continue using my-hacks.php.

My browser is a mess. When I’m working on my laptop, I usually have about 40 tabs open at a time: a dozen Google Docs, Twitter, a couple of forums, oodles of other research pages. Pretty soon my work slows to a crawl because I can’t refind the damn site I was just looking at.

Apple just released iOS 9 yesterday, and with it allowed adblockers into the app store. Since the mobile web is increasingly a Big Deal, this fact heralds a sea change for the web. An article about adblocking made the rounds a few weeks ago.

WDS Camp is almost OVER! If you follow any of our resident dorks on Twitter, you’ve probably already seen us going nuts with the #WDSCamp hashtag-so you already know. While I’d worked remotely before, I’d never been a part of a telecommuting team that prioritizes the face to face and certainly never worked for a company that insisted on having this particular kind of meet and greet.
