Hanselman's Newsletter of Wonderful Things: February 26th, 2013

I have a "whenever I get around to doing it" Newsletter of Wonderful Things. Why a newsletter? I dunno. It seems more personal somehow. Fight me.

Still, it's one more site to check and it's a hassle for some of you  Dear Readers. Therefore, I will still do the newsletter, but I'll post each newsletter to the blog some weeks later.

You can view all the previous newsletters here. You can sign up here Newsletter of Wonderful Things or just wait and get them later on the blog, which hopefully you have subscribed to.

Here's the LAST newsletter, delay-posted as I do.

Hi Interfriends,

Thanks again for signing up for this experiment. Here's some interesting things I've come upon this week. If you forwarded this (or if it was forwarded to you) a reminder, you signed up at and the archive of all previous Newsletters is here.

The Aptiverse blog link now goes to a "we've been purchased by someone" announcement. Apparently they are excited!

Scott Ive read your blog for a long time and hold you in the highest regard as a technical expert, which is why Im shocked that you would post something so bigoted and ignorant as "Straight White Male: The Lowest Difficulty Setting"

ELG - Can you give me a little more detail? I do a lot of work in the diversity space, speaking at conferences, working with underrepresented groups all over the world. Did you read the article and disagree with it?

Agreeing with ELG? You do a lot of work on the diversity space. With what aim, building up or tearing down? This post is definitely a tearing down, and does nothing constructive.

Basically the linked article can be summed up in a single racist statement. "Shut up cracker boy, you got it made."

Is that really working for diversity? I say not!

Guys - The list hit a cap. They've added some room so it should work now.
