Weekly Watercooler: New Year Edition

January 4th, 2013

4K news this week:

  • We got some amazing holiday cards from folks all over! Here’s a small sampling of the wonderful designs. Thank you all sincerely for the wonderful wishes!

Links around the watercooler:

  • Netflix: purveyor of entertainment… and open source? Yes, Netflix recently open sourced a script that cleans up unused AWS cloud resources.
  • Adaptable books: The Web Book Boilerplate allows you to write books for every platform!
  • Breakpoints panel: a module that adds checkboxes to breakpoints specified in a module’s UI. We haven’t played with it, but we’re intrigued!
  • Finally, a Jurassic Park game that doesn’t suck: If you like games, dinosaurs and cool hacks as much as we do, you might also like this fan made Jurassic Park video game, built on the Half Life engine. Clever girl!
  • First drafts: Have you ever wondered what some famous film characters could have looked like, had filmmakers decided to go with their first draft? Well, wonder no further! Yoda could have been a gnome.
