Starlit black leopard by Will Burrard-Lewis

What a beautifully surreal image of a rare African black leopard this is. Wildlife photographer Will Burrard-Lewis spent six months working to capture this photo, which I initially thought was a rendering or painting for how perfect the lighting and composition are. You can read more about his process here.

Joel Spolsky in 2000:

The idea that new code is better than old is patently absurd. Old code has been used. It has been tested. Lots of bugs have been found, and they’ve been fixed. There’s nothing wrong with it. It doesn’t acquire bugs just by sitting around on your hard drive. Au contraire, baby! Is software supposed to be like an old Dodge Dart, that rusts just sitting in the garage? Is software like a teddy bear that’s kind of gross if it’s not made out of all new material?
