I added some code sharing tools recently and wanted to give you the scoop. I use two: One is Github's tools for sharing code and it's called Gist. The other is a pretty widely used markdown display tool that has a bunch of nice features (like coloring text and showing line numbers) which is Alex Gorbatchev's Syntax Highlighter. Hopefully one or both works for you too!

Have you ever been curious as to the common practices of others? I certainly have been. A friend of mine spotted a Google Javascript Style Guide the other day which gives a heads up for a lot of pre-defined practices that are being used. You'll likely be familiar with a few of these, but you might just pick up a thing or two (I did).

At work I'm constantly dealing with HTML, CSS, and JS files so a good text editor goes a long way. I've been using TextMate for some time, but recently a colleague discovered a text editor called Sublime Text 2. It does a lot of the same things TextMate does and even uses alot of the same TextMate bundles. If you're looking for a text editor similar to TextMate, but want to try something new then you might just give Sublime Text 2 a try.

I checked into one of my social media accounts to find that a friend had posted an infographic of the history of web browsers. Whether or not you know the history already, it's a nice presentation.

I was looking around Stack Overflow tonight and decided I'd look at the people with the most "reputation" (reputation let's others know how much a person has participated in SOF's online community). I've seen this guy before- he seems to have a knack for good answers and intriguing questions. Check out Jon Skeet on Stack Overflow.
