Election Day thoughts on the Chicago 7, a reminder that we can change the world. A photo from @nwreg reminding us to twinkle. A tiny dog in a spider costume and Maggie's link to our cat and dog dressed for Halloween. Paul Hudson's Hacking +.

Apple events and telling stories about you that others see themselves in. A sadly relevant Mugabe cartoon, Kernighan and the Birth of Unix, Lattner on Swift value types, Maggie's link to favorite movie lines for women 5 - 75, and Mikey Ward's Swift book

Thankful at Thanksgiving. The best cover of "Back in Black", a pomegranate salad, India Vignettes, wearing your mask right, two Sponge Bob related links (one is Maggie's link), and link to the HIG.
