OHNY: TWA Flight Center

A beautiful Flickr gallery showing the Eero Saarinen-designed TWA Flight Center. A far cry from the largely functional and brutal terminals in most airports.

Bitbucket

github has definitely won the majority mindshare when it comes to open source git repository hosting. If you need private repositories it can get expensive. Bitbucket is a much better option. It isn’t as social as github, but offers most of the same features for free/cheap.

Perfect Workflow in Sublime Text

This free course from the Net Tuts+ premium side shows you everything you’ll need to get up and running quickly with Sublime Text 2. It even includes a chapter on Vintage Mode, Sublime’s modal vi-work-alike.

Writebox

Writebox is a simple editor for editing and creating text files in your Dropbox† account. No install, it runs in your web browser. (If that’s too easy for you, maybe vi in the Cloud is more your thing? vi in your browser with Dropbox integration.)
