As people complained that I post too many links to follow on Twitter (it is my stream of consciousness – as I find it, I post it), I’m starting to release these link lists every few days now. Hopefully that helps.




  • Automatic visual diffing with Puppeteer is a simple explanation by the amazing Monica Dinculescu
  • Blobmaker is a tool to create organic shape blobs and save them as SVG (saving doesn’t work in Edge, at the moment)
  • RRWeb is an open source web session replay library, which provides easy-to-use APIs to record user’s interactions and replay it remotely.

Misc Tips

Geek shit



  • Algorithms by Jeff Erickson – This web page contains a free electronic version of my (soon to be) self-published textbook Algorithms, along with other lecture notes I have written for various theoretical computer science classes at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign since 1998.

Mental health and working

  • New Office Hours Aim for Well Rested, More Productive Workers – one of the big new(ish) topics is that of personalized biological rhythm known as “chronotype”. Basically this means that we all tick differently – some of us a more effective in the morning and others in the wee hours of the morning. That leads some companies to put people on different shifts. More information about the chronotype is also in the morning lark or night owl article of the World Economic Forum
