Venn Diagrams with D3.js

Call me a geek, but this blog post about creating Venn Diagrams in D3 should be turned into full-length Hollywood movie.

Motherfucking Website

I especially enjoyed this part:

It’s responsive

You dumbass. You thought you needed media queries to be responsive, but no. Responsive means that it responds to whatever motherfucking screensize it’s viewed on. This site doesn’t care if you’re on an iMac or a motherfucking Tamagotchi.

Sorkin and the Optimism of Hope

I’m a big fan of all things Aaron Sorkin. I might even describe him as the best writer of the digital era. One of the most frequent criticisms of his work is his rampant liberalism and lack of realism when it comes to his views on modern day problems.

As I sit on this flight binge watching early episodes of The Newsroom it is clear why I, like so many others, love his writing, television shows, and movies. It isn’t his infectious prose, engaging cadence, nor his political leanings.

The thing that makes Sorkin’s works so irresistible are his themes of hope. It doesn’t matter if it is The West Wing, Studio 60, or The Newsroom — Sorkin finds a way to find the best in people. Even though it is fiction, and their may be a lack of realism, it is a theme that leaves even this pessimist wanting more.
