You might be interested that this is such a common way to derail conversations about privilege that it's made part of 'Derailing for Dummies'.

So, that website pulls my least favorite "social justice" trick: pretending that every oppressive action is willful and premeditated. A lot of those issues are very, very subtle from a privileged POV, and it doesn't do a damn bit of good to pretend otherwise.

-----


That web-site's tone is more than a little offensive. If you're going to sink that low that quickly I'm just going to outright refuse to have a discussion with you at all.

You might be interested that 'Derailing for Dummies' is nothing but a rhetorical escape hatch, used mainly to declare victory without actually making a logical argument.

Given that the author is a senior mathematician and cites studies freely means that at least part of what you linked to doesn't apply.

However, I think that the use of 'Fact' as a section heading was more a rhetorical device than anything else/

I have this - and I had reason to call it recently due to a technical issue.

In short: I'd advanced paid for a 1 year Apps account a month before the monthly billing came in to place. My credit card expired with 11 months of the contract left, but they suspended the account as that appears to be policy with new monthly billing system. I received no email asking to update the card prior to suspension. This suspended all the services it was connected to. Call centre couldn't help, account was down for 18h - they just said wait for new card to propagate.

I'm sure if a journalist from Gawker had posted this to HN it would have been resolved with more urgency.

Yeoman was launched today at Google IO.

Yes.

as in spinning off a thread to serve it?

Feature request: RTL. :)

plus RTL inside LTR and LTR inside RTL. Have a look at Wikipedia's pages of Arabic dishes for good examples.

Angular doesn't include JSON parsing any more.

Yes, it polls. Most functions are quite fast, and fine to just poll, and it's quite convenient to be able to bind to functions when needed.

But it's all tradeoffs - in our app we have a few that aren't - for those, we profiled to find them, and added a bit of code to the functions to cache the return value.

-----


I wouldn't call it polling.

Angular does dirty checking at the right moment.

After you bootstrap your app, nothing happens, unless: - user interacts (DOM event is fired) - response from server is back (xhr callback) - setTimeout fires - couple of other minor async stuff

So you only need to dirty check when some of these events occur and that's exactly what Angular does. Check out scope.$digest method, that's where all this stuff happens.

-----


It doesn't poll, actually.

-----


Sorry, what I meant is that when the application rerenders (digesting changes that have been made) it will re-evaluate the function to check if the result has changed.

Polling the function for changes, contrast with how e.g. knockout.js pushes changes. (I could be wrong, please let me know if my understanding's not reality)

-----


Ah, yeah I think you've got it right. I thought you meant polling as in it checked every X milliseconds for changes.

[Googler here]

There's little overlap between Closure Library and Angular.

Closure Library is a grab bag library full of useful functions that you can pick and choose from and integrate into your own code. Kind of like a standard library.

Angular is a client-side MVC framework that gives you two-way databinding and custom views and dependency injection.

Indeed, in our angular project, we use both - Closure Library for useful functions and advanced compilations, and angular for MVC.
