There was this one teen girl I talked to, a total One Direction fan.

Twitter was her One Direction space. […] And what she was sharing on Instagram was not about One Direction because that just wasn’t the place for it.

Meanwhile, they were also doing crazy things on Tumblr, where they were part of a little maker community.

” — I really like this quote from danah boyd. It makes me super happy to see Tumblr described as a safe place that inspires creative output.

content_for :butt

I’d like to propose a new Ruby on Rails design pattern. You might already be specifying a custom yield to insert content into a layout’s <head>:

<head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <%= csrf_meta_tags %>

    [...]

    <%= yield :head %>
</head>

In your view:

<% content_for :head do %>
    <script>
        Tracking.start();
    </script>
<% end %>

But do you ever need to place some HTML, maybe a Javascript template or tracking code, at the end of the <body>?

Well, you should put it in the :butt.

<body>
    <div class="content">
        <%= yield %>
    </div>

    <%= yield :butt %>
</body>

In your view:

<% content_for :butt do %>
    <script>
        new Butt.Stuff();
    </script>
<% end %>

iOS keyboard shortcut suggestions

Always add shortcuts with the whole phrase in lowercase as iOS will convert it to your current keyboard capitalization mode. That way you can use it in the middle or beginning of a sentence. Or in all caps, if you’re pissed.
