New favorite CSS trick

.golden-box {
    width: 100%;
    height: 0;
    padding-top: 61.803398875%;

I don’t know why this makes me giddy

>>> def daisy(fn, *args): return fn(*args)
>>> daisy(lambda: "no args")
'no args'
>>> daisy(lambda(num): num + " args", "one")
'one args'

Tagging to describe other objects

I spent some time at Facebook last week talking with their engineers regarding Open Graph tagging.  This made me wonder, why is there no way to tag other pages?

Say, you’re a company like Foursquare, and you want meta info for a restaurant, so you create a page and tag it for open graph, which makes your URL the key for that object.  But that’s not really true, the URL that represents the restaurant is their own webpage.

The Foursquare page is legit on it’s own, but it shouldn’t be the defacto source.  Plus, the restaurant may not care (or more likely have the resources/knowhow) to tag their own page.  So, wouldn’t it be nice if Foursquare could tag their own reference of the restaurant’s page with all this info, so that the restaurant’s page would have this info by reference.

Maybe this breaks everything, I don’t know.
