What the Heck is Shadow DOM?
Browser developers realized that coding the appearance and behavior of HTML elements completely by hand is a) hard and b) silly. So they sort of cheated. They created a boundary between what you, the Web developer can reach and what’s considered implementation details, thus inaccessible to you. The browser however, can traipse across this boundary at will.

I recalled a few of the Flickrazzi's who post the "how-to's" of their daily lives
. For example, 7-how-7
works for a production company that produces blow-up dolls for the
film and commercial industry (via BoingBoing
works as a mortician, rickenbacker
documents his life in fast food, and then there's a variety of active duty military folk who are documenting the mundane "over there", like ob1left
, At Ease
, Doc Torres
, enlisted cowboy
, and the homsar
. But if blogging at work can be bad, than I'm sure taking photos at work and sharing them with the interweb HAS to be worse.
