    Emacs and Vim have a lot in common. They both optimize for the "power user" experience and therefore have a very steep learning curve. For users who are able to get over that hump, both editors are incredibly powerful.

    The Emacs vs Vim question doesn't seem as relevant these days. More relevant would be Emacs/Vim vs easy-to-use-GUI-editors. I would expect that you'd see a fairly large divide across those lines in term so of age/experience and programming ability.

    Yotsubato is a wonderful SOL manga by the same creator as Azumanga Daioh. It follows the everyday adventures of a five year old girl, her single father, and an assortment of friends and neighbors. It'll probably never be adapted into an Anime, but reading the manga is totally worth it.

    As a multiracial person, I empathize a lot with both the author of this article and her boy. Most Americans still think about race in terms of Black/White/Latino/Asian and don't understand race...
