Learning to code is an essential skill in the modern world. Here's a handy diagram showing you how to get started.

. @seancribbs Some days you diff the Merkle tree other days the Merkle tree diffs you.Is the WH is buying methane offset credits to counter-balance daily press briefings?Can we get Sean Spicer a Twitch stream? Would be AMAZING.Time for the daily WH press briefing also known as "the 1:00 dumpster fire".
The Python Click cli framework is nice. Added an interactive REPL to cogctl with just a few lines of code: Trump advisor Stephen Miller confirms it rubs the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again.

Future executive order: All government software to be rewritten in Hoon, run on Nock, and deployed on Urbit?
Retweeted by Kevin SmithWelp. The hits just keep coming with our Muppet In Chief.
@SeanTAllen Similar feels here. "Oh that's a neat idea...except for all the front end stuff I need to re-learn." @SeanTAllen Once upon a time I used to build web UIs. Those days have long since passed, sadly. @hornbeck Noir Louise Belcher?Making up a fake massacre of American citizens to justify a ban of refugees and immigrants based on religion is not a little oopsie daisy.
Retweeted by Kevin Smith @laserllama @AllThingsOpen That's a whole lot o' llama. Just sayin'
@geekubed At first glance I thought that was a bowl of pot. Not that it would be bad.... @obfuscurity Yo!
@geekubed I hope it doesn't have to be ;-) @geekubed But it would be cathartic :)Gotta quit watching these WH briefings live. Can't be good for my blood pressure. #ragestroke @old_sound @paulkrugman Yep. Poor choice of metaphor, imo. "Strongman despot" is just as accurate.
Why aren’t they asking about the travel ban?!?!This WH press conf is yet another basket of crazy.
Today’s small act of defiance - wore Obey’s “Ignite Activism” shirt thru RDU customsGreat visit to London. Too bad I had to reassure several ppl that I didn’t vote for and don’t agree w/Trump. What an embarrassment.
Make America Great Britain Again.

Retweeted by Kevin Smith @OwenJones84 @AbiWilks That’s a small hand. Just sayin’ @base10 Next week he’ll announce “National Burn Kittens & Puppies Day”. WTF.Feels like we’re edging closer to the “Darvaza gas crater” stage of Trump’s presidency. about a cuddly owl all wrapped up like a burrito?! #RaptorCenter #cuteanimaltweetoff

Retweeted by Kevin Smith @darachennis OMG. I could use expose the REST API on MQTT over PCI-E. @darachennis Indeed! @darachennis No worries. I'm working on a Docker port to PIC32 ;-) @darachennis Is running Docker on IoT devices truly lightweight? ;-)Thinking of @old_sound with all the metaphors in the air this morning #monkigras @mccabeonfire I did :(
