Writer/director Mike Judge spoke to Fresh Air’s Dave Davies about his new HBO series Silicon Valley and his 1999 cult classic, Office Space. In the interview he tells us about where the boss character’s tagline of “… yeah,” came from: 

It wasn’t [based on] any specific person. It kind of came a few different ways. I worked at Whataburger which is a Texas-New Mexico chain, a burger place, and I worked at Jack-in-the-Box, this is when I was young. … The worst thing ever at both of those jobs is to change the fryers and the way that someone will say, “Yeah, um, Mike, why don’t you go ahead and change the fryers?” To say “go ahead” it’s like you were just chomping at the bit to go do it and I’m just gonna go cut you loose and go ahead — now it’s so common place. …
I think in the ’50s a boss would say “Hey Milton, move your desk. Thanks.” I don’t know if it’s the baby boom generation where everyone has to be cool, in the ’70s and ’80s it turned into, “Yeah … if I could get you just go ahead and move your desk,” And it’s this kind of “I’m casual, I’m cool. I’m not your ’50s boss.”
I would just prefer someone coming up and telling you what to do. I would respect that more. … Even over the years just noticing the “yeah” that means “no.” Like if you say, “Can I have Friday off?”
"Hmm … Yeah …"

Here’s what sleep deprivation is doing to your body

Not getting enough sleep? Just one week of sleeping fewer than six hours per night can lead to serious health issues, including the modification of over 700 genes, reports the Huffington Post on a study published in PNAS last year. Other symptoms of chronic sleep deprivation include everything from bloodshot eyes to quadrupled stroke risk. This infographic fromHuffington Post’s Alissa Scheller explains.

Coachella ‘14: Rent a $2200 Tipi to Match Your Hipster Headdress
The first weekend of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is in the books, and yes, hipster headdresses have been spotted. This isn’t shocking — after all, the fad of misusing Native culture is still alive and when when a Victoria’s Secret model dons a feather headdress prior to the massive festival, and BuzzFeed sees fit to run an article (“16 Things You Definitely Shouldn’t Wear to Coachella”) trashing the trend.

The NSA Knew Of HeartBleed Bug For Two Years And Used It To Spy On The Internet
The NSA knew about the Internet security bug Heartbleed and regularly used it to gather intelligence for at least two years, anonymous sources told Bloomberg.
If the report is true — both the White House and the NSA say it’s not  — the NSA could have collected information like passwords and private communications from hundreds of thousands of websites, since Heartbleed is a bug in the popular open-source encryption software OpenSSL, used to secure data flowing from users’ computers to hundreds of thousands of websites, including Gmail and Facebook.
Almost two-thirds of all sites on the Internet use OpenSSL, according to estimates, making this bug possibly one of the most dangerous the Internet has ever seen and potentially allowing the NSA to access information on millions of users.
Matthew Prince, the CEO of security firm Cloudflare, tweeted that it’s “hard as a tech company today to not feel like we’re at war with our own government.”
Despite the outrage, this revelation doesn’t come as a complete surprise for many. Over the past few days, some have already speculated whether the NSA used Heartbleed to breach SSL, since documents leaked by Edward Snowden revealed the spy agency has been trying to breach it for years.
“It would not at all surprise me if the NSA had discovered this long before the rest of us had," Matt Blaze, a cryptographer and computer security professor at the University of Pennsylvania, told Wired. “It’s certainly something that the NSA would find extremely useful in their arsenal.”

India teen tells US how to save $400 million by changing font (via The Hindu)

A 14-year-old Indian-origin boy has come up with a unique plan that could help the U.S. save nearly $400 million a year by merely changing the font used on official documents.

Suvir Mirchandani, a student in a Pittsburgh-area middle school, claimed that if the federal government used the Garamond font exclusively it could save about $136 million per year, nearly 30 per cent less than the estimated $467 dollars it spends annually on ink.

An additional $234 million could be saved annually if state governments also implemented the change.

Mirchandani said the idea came to him when he was trying to think of ways to cut waste and save money as part of a science fair project at his school, CNN reported.

The youngster noticed that he was getting a lot more handouts than he did in elementary school and decided to figure out if he could minimize use of paper and ink.

While recycling paper was one way to save money and conserve resources, Mirchandani said little attention had been paid to the ink used on the papers.

“Ink is two times more expensive than French perfume by volume,” he said, adding that he then decided to focus his project on finding ways to cut down the cost of ink.

As part of his experiment, he collected random samples of teachers’ handouts and focused on the most commonly used characters such as e, t, a, o and r.

He noted how often each character was used in different fonts like Garamond, Times New Roman, Century Gothic and Comic Sans and then measured how much ink was used for each letter, using an ink coverage software.

From his analysis, Mirchandani figured out that by using the Garamond font with its thinner strokes, his school district could reduce its ink consumption by 24 per cent and in turn save as much as $21,000 annually.

He repeated his tests on five sample pages from documents on the Government Printing Office website and got similar results that changing the font would save money.

Mirchandani’s findings have been published in the Journal for Emerging Investigators (JEI), a publication founded by a group of Harvard students in 2011 that provides a platform for the work of middle school and high school students.

One of the journal’s founders Sarah Fankhauser said that of the nearly 200 submissions they have received since 2011, Mirchandani’s project stood out.

“We were so impressed. We really could really see the real-world application in Suvir’s paper,” Fankhauser was quoted as saying…”

I’ve waited six seasons for the narrow world of the “chattering class" to catch up to the Frederator/CN production of Pendleton Ward's Adventure Time. And though our friends at Cartoon Network appreciated the show enough to put it on their network, they never really understood that AT is, frame for frame, one of the truly great shows on television.
Of course I’m biased, and a complete soft touch, but which of the “big” modern dramas accomplishes their depth without having a completely unredeemable hero. Adventure Time is easily the equal of Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Justified, and the others, but Finn, its star, is a kind, generous, happy man/boy. Just like his creator. Emily Nussbaum in today’s New Yorker totally understands what you already know: “It’s beautiful and funny and stupid and smart, in about equal parts, as well as willing to explore uneasy existential questions, like what it means to go on when the story you’re in has ended.” 
Read it, nod your head, and please pass it on to all those people who look at you blankly.
