OpenAPIMasher Spec

There’s got to be a way to easily mash data from an API with an external list without too much programming.

David on Intelligence

David shares his views on intelligence. “Intelligence is two things… maybe three. 1 = having knowledge (data points or dots); 2 = connecting the dots; 3 = learning (getting more dots).”
