Like much of the world last weekend, I had the sincere pleasure of seeing a brand new Star Wars movie. For an entire weekend (and two viewings) my younger brother and I regressed back to our pre-adolescent (and adolescent) selves, relishing the escape from our now very adult lives and responsibilities.

Earlier this month, Kansas-based hairstylist Ursula Goff uploaded this side-by-side image juxtaposing two jarringly contrasting selfies. The photos were taken several days apart. Goff uploaded the visual to spotlight the worthlessness in comparing oneself against others on social media because these “picture-perfect” images are all refined.

As mentioned in our end of year post, one of our goals for 2015 was to up our content game-and up it we did.

Today in “amazing ideas the internet had” we bring you an experiment that is without a doubt the best way to celebrate the end of 2015 tonight, and an even better way to usher in 2016. One sparkler is fun, but 10,000 igniting at the same time?

George Costanza once said if he owned a company he would be so loved by his employees they would “have huge pictures of me up the walls and in their home, like Lenin.” Well, George never got around to owning that company but a bar has opened in Melbourne that pays tribute to him in a way that even the…
I spend a good amount of time engaging with website owners across a broad spectrum of businesses. Interestingly enough, unless I’m talking large enterprise, there is a common question that often comes up: Why would anyone ever hack my website? Depending on who you are, the answer to this can vary.
Those tiny plastic microbeads you have been rubbing on your face are now outlawed in the United States. President Obama signed a bipartisan bill that prohibits selling and distributing products containing microbeads. The bill is intended to protect the nation’s waterways.
Twitter’s oft-neglected app for Mac got a much-needed update today, adding support for inline GIFs, videos, quote-tweets, and other features that mobile users have had for years.

A few weeks ago, I put out an initial call for volunteers for 4.5. In the spirit of the much-commented @wonderboymusic 4.4 Wishlist post, I’d like to extend the call a bit more. What are you most interested in seeing in WordPress 4.5 – big, or small?
I woke up at 2:30 this morning, thinking about the next year, next steps. I do this often when I have something on my mind, like a big idea or project or meeting. Or in this case, the year is ending and I’m getting amped up for the coming year.
Of the 35 WP core committers, 22 do not work for Automattic. Just in case you were still thinking that WordPress is an Automattic project.
Hossein Derakhshan was a key blogger in Iran who was jailed for his writing, and recently released. He has entered a new world: I miss when people took time to be exposed to opinions other than their own, and bothered to read more than a paragraph or 140 characters.

5 years ago I was sitting across a table from a kid 3 years younger than me begging him to hire me to sell coffee from a drive-through window. Yesterday I upgraded a client’s WordPress site to 4.4, and installed an SSL certificate from LetsEncrypt.org on his server, which I host for him.
We’ve had an awesome 2015 at Human Made, growing our team, delivering great sites for amazing clients in our agency work, and launching some amazing products (have you signed up for Nomadbase yet?): I would totally only use emoji to write this whole sentence just to celebrate. 👋📅↗️🎊🎉 (we like emoji).

I’m good at math. If you looked at my standardized test results from when I was back in school, you’d see I scored very high in math and very low in verbal. And yet, today I’m a professional writer and editor. It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad world. Sort of.

In all candidness, I shouldn’t have been in Solomeo. I don’t write for a big fashion magazine. I have no credibility in Brunello Cucinelli’s world. But after a friend heard me wax eloquent about well-made cashmere sweaters for nearly an hour, he suggested that I should perhaps meet this guy in Italy.
Earlier this year, WordPress 4.2 added the ability to install and update plugins in-place. This feature is known as “Shiny Updates”. I’m a big fan of this feature because it’s substantially quicker than updating plugins via the updates page. Here’s what it looks like in action.

Because real life is never as cool as the movies, we get hoverboards that don’t actually hover. But because real life can also be pretty damn fun, we get this totally bad ass “lightsaber” that uses a thin burning flame as its blade.
