As a proud Fedorian, vi user under Fedora and as a developer (well from time to time) I must share this news that combines my two worlds.
The truth is everybody needs to do multitasking today. The real cost of it is hidden, but you’ll definitely lose at least 40% of your productivity if you are constantly switching between apps. Let’s try and do some other stuff in between.
40%: This is too much!
Developers keep on switching between their editors, emails and bug trackers. What if you can get bug reports right where you will fix them? Imagine the immediate gain in productivity!

THIS is important: A friend of mine Jan Husar (freelance journalist and a good guy) is in #Crimea and he needs a new laptop to continue working and spreading the word live about what is going there. If you respect transparency and care about independent news, please help him.
If you can provide the laptop for him, please contact him directly via Facebook.
If not a donation will be an option too:

It’s not a secret, I am one of the few guys left on the planet who do not believe in the magic of SEO.
I believe SEO methods are good, but they must be combined with user prediction models and utilizing user behavior for better content serving.
Why am I writing this? Well I think it’s time now to talk about it. I am sure first position on Google or other search machines is something good, but is this what the user is actually looking for? In most cases, probably yes, but this will change soon.
For example: I needed a Firefox addon today for taking sreenshots for one of my projects. Of course I wrote “addon screenshot” into Google and of course it returns all SEO-ized results for …Chrome, not seeing that I am using Firefox and most probably I don’t need results for Chrome
I think search machines must be smarter than that. I don’t want to see results that others, SEO ninjas for example, want me to see. I want the results that will give me the answer I am looking for. I don’t have time to scroll and browse.
This opens another story, about privacy and about giving the companies your preferences, but I do think this can be done in a way to make everybody happy.
What say you?
