Because, why not? Enterprises run on spreadsheets, so why shouldn't your website?
DATA by Brace is an interesting concept.
A developer's choice of browser dev tools is fast becoming the passionate argument to replace the old favourite of "Which text editor do you use". If you use Chrome's Devtools then Devtoolstips.com looks packed with helpful ways to use it better. If you don't use Chrome's Devtools, then maybe this site could help convince you to switch.

Tyupkin: Manipulating ATM Machines with Malware is an interesting breakdown on some ATM Malware found in the wild. It’s a quick and interesting read.
The article contains this statement, which is a very polite way of saying “Stop running fucking Windows XP”:

Google Translate Chrome extension can zoom in on short bits of text – very handy if you need occasional translation of a phrase and need to keep the page in its original language.

Get the extension here.

Everyone needs a regular reminder of the awesomeness that is the Internet. May I present to you: http://slugsolos.tumblr.com/
If you travelled back into the past, and asked web developers of the era whether they thought this headline was real or a joke, how do you think they’d have answered?

The constant stream of posts containing lists of plugins is never ending, however this one contained a couple which looked interesting and worth following up.
jQuery Grab-Bag: 10 New Plugins – the ones that caught my attention were ChatJS (which also comes with a server side implementation for ASP.NET/SignalR out of the box), List.js (because lists are cool), and the Bootstrap YouTube Popup Player Plugin simply because it has potential to be useful in customer sites.

Browser Statistics and Trends – an interesting read, even if it does have a heavy developer bias.

There’s a lot of articles for people who love Crossfit, as well as articles for it. This is one of the anti-Crossfit ones that I read. Anyway, when you watch the video above you can certainly see how the emphasis on going hard and fast can lead people to slack off on form, leading to injury.
