Disappointed in your cakes I am.

Cake for America
The Code for America project at Clearleft was fun for everyone involved. And because the code for the site is open to anyone to contribute to, the fun didn’t have to stop when the project officially wrapped up.
Because of her experience with front-end styleguides, we had hired Anna to work as a front-end developer on the Code for America project. But even when she was officially discharged of her duties, she decided to keep contributing to the public codebase.
For this service above and beyond the call of duty, Mike rewarded her in the time-honoured way: cake! In this case, the cake was inspired by the unofficial project theme song we blasted out every morning in the Clearleft HQ.

What do I know?
On our way back from New Zealand, Jessica and I stopped off in Sydney for a day. That same evening, the “What Do You Know?” event was going on—a series of five minute lightning talks from Sydney’s finest web geeks.
Maxine asked me if I could do a turn so I put together a quick spiel called Five Things I Learned from the Internet. Those five things are:
- How to wrap headphone cables in a tangle-free way.
- How to fold a T-shirt in seconds.
- How to tie shoelaces correctly (thanks, Adam).
- How to eat a cupcake (thanks, Tara).
- How to peel a banana (thanks, Kyle) with a bonus lesson on the bananus.
At least one of those things will blow your mind. Pwshoo!

Ignore the attention-grabbing headline. Brothercake is something more nuanced here (and he's backing it up with examples).

Tax-deductable Friday cake? The cake is a lie.
