“Choose Life” from Trainspotting 2

In 90s Irvine Welsh published “Trainspotting“, that soon became a bestseller and was filmed by Danny Boyle.

An anthem of punk subculture, and anarchy portrayed by Ewan McGregor and Jonny Lee Miller following great cast. 20 years later, the story got its continuation in “T2: Trainspotting”.  Same characters, 20 years older, and somewhat wiser, facing pretty much same problems and unresolved conflicts.

One of the famous monologues from the first movie intro puts an end to what life film characters have chosen:

“The mess we are in” by Joe Armstrong

Great talk from Joe Armstrong on how they created Erlang, and how Programming community looked back in the days. Amazing, inspiring, worth watching:

Birth & Death of JavaScript

Absolutely brilliant talk from Gary Bernhardt about JavaScript. Appearance of asm.js and all the low-level fun, that was going on in 2000’s.

This science fiction / comedy / absurdist / completely serious talk traces the history of JavaScript, and programming in general, from 1995 until 2035. It’s not pro- or anti-JavaScript; the language’s flaws are discussed frankly, but its ultimate impact on the industry is tremendously positive. For Gary’s more serious (and less futuristic) thoughts on programming, try some Destroy All Software screencasts.

It’s my 90s

3 years ago, I wrote about this great video from Vimeo user MorskoiKotik. This time it’s a throwback to 90s nostalgia:

It’s my 80’s

Vimeo user MorskoiKotik summed up all the movies from 80s we grew up upon in this video:

  • Back in Future,
  • Terminator,
  • Predator,
  • Lethal Weapon,
  • Die Hard,
  • Cobra.

That is truly an old school gathered here. Plus, everything is themed with synth pop/new wave tunes from “Dance of the Dead”.
