You went to the store, bought yourself a gorgeous, pinky-red fillet of salmon, came home and cooked it just like the recipe said, and all of a sudden this white, filmy gunk has begun to seep out of your beautiful fish. Not cool salmon, not cool.
Deadspin turns 10 years old today; we’re proud of what our site has done, even though we’ll look like self-aggrandizing assholes if we talk about it. It’s hard, when you’re working here every day, to think of the stories that have really stood out, or stood in for other ones that stood out, so we asked the editors of…
I want to hug and kiss this beautiful story from ESPN’s Don Van Natta Jr. and Seth Wickersham and take it out to a fancy dinner. Splendidly reported and brutally damning of both the New England Patriots and Roger Goodell, it alleges that the Patriots’ Spygate scandal was worse than anyone imagined—and was actively…
In order to know how much money to throw at hardware for kinja we occasionally benchmark it to see how much headroom we have left. Only instead of coming up with an artificial benchmark that tries to accurately represent our millions of daily users, we do the inverse and *remove* servers from live traffic to see…
So everyone's gonna argue about Beck for a few days, which is a mixed blessing for everyone, Beck included. And, look. He should not have won the Grammy for Album of the Year. I can think of at least nine reasons why. This is all mildly embarrassing, and yet inevitable, as we're talking about the Grammys, and the…
Sam, I've been trying to understand the opinion piece you wrote entitled Brands Are Not Your Friends. And I'm trying to understand you. For people new to this topic, here's Biddle's nutgraph.
More good stuff from Yammer.
Complexity cost is something everyone from managers (whether the CEO, product manager, or vp of engineering) to engineers themselves rarely consider. It's something a good product organization should implement solutions to always take them into consideration. The complexity cost of implementation, explanation and side…
Wouldn't the Moon, so much nearer than Mars, be a better first step? Actually, no – it's just too different. It's better to test hardware and train people in analogs on Earth, such as the geologically similar high-altitude desert in Utah or the cold and dry Canadian Arctic desert. Why the European Space Agency has…

The world is changing. And things are changing at io9 and Gizmodo, too.
John Edmark has created a fascinating series of fibonacci zoetrope sculptures that feel like magic. Watch them in action. It's hypnotizing.

I have seen countless science fiction movies and documentaries about the future of humanity. None of them were as inspiring, beautiful, and realistic as this extraordinary short film by Erik Wernquist, narrated by Carl Sagan. Watch it and get ready for goosebumps.
Soon, Isaac Asimov's legendary Foundation trilogy will be coming to HBO. But what do you need to know about this series, which explores questions of fate versus determinism and the cyclical nature of history? Here's our complete primer on this enduring science-fiction classic.

What's with all the dogs?
Last night our Budapest office hosted our team of 60 visiting from NYC at Brody Studios for a banging party. I shot 1,368 frames and realized that my colleagues are not only super smart (AND nice AND funny AND fabulous)—but they are also BEAUTIFUL.
As some of you may already know, we are on the way of transforming our architecture to SOA (not the TV show). We already have a few not-that-micro services, but they still live in the same repository as sbt subprojects in order to make the transition smoother: direct function calls between services could be left as…
