We’ve Hoped Our Way Into Our Current Crisis | On Being
If I believe in justice, do I express that belief? Do I work against injustice? Do I choose to undermine oppression or further it? Not because I know I’ll “win” or “succeed,” but because I’ve committed myself to living the way I think I should live.

At my best, I answer what each moment and my values call me to do. Sometimes it’s to rest, to reflect. Sometimes it’s to play. Sometimes it’s to connect with friends and loved ones. Sometimes it’s to struggle, critique, speak out. Sometimes to listen. Sometimes to celebrate. Sometimes to grieve. Each moment makes its demand, and I’m seeking the kind of life where I hear and answer that need as often as I can.

Contrary to our control-obsessed culture, the alternative to hope isn’t passivity or despair. It’s living. It’s being humble and real. It’s being here.

Vue.js front end app, part 2: Design is (not) hard
Balsamiq Mockups is a tool I’ve grown quite fond of in the past year and a half. It features a ton of components, drag-and-drop design, and a hand-drawn style which I find appealing.

The downside, of course, it’s that Balsamiq Mockups cost a chunk of cash, coming in at $89 for a license at the time of writing. Also I’m certain that it’s style will not appeal to everybody, whether that means you or a client. As with everything I present here, your mileage may vary (in this instance, a lot).

The short arm of coincidence | bit-player
All of the above is make-believe mathematics. I have stirred up some ingredients that look like they might make a tasty confection, but I have no idea how to bake the cake. Perhaps someone else will supply the recipe. In the meantime, I want to entertain an alternative hypothesis: that nothing prevents n!+1
n
!
+
1
from being a square except improbability.
