Transforming furniture is amazing (this is well-documented, BTW), and when I saw Boxetti’s line of transforming modules for every part of the home, I basically made a mess of myself. There’s a couch that turns into a table and a desk. There’s a kitchen that packs into a box. A desk that pops out of the wall. OMG. SO. GOOD. More »

I really miss Lauryn Hill. I know, I know, you do too and everyone does and she sort of gets out to perform sometimes—but whatever. I miss amazing things like her Unplugged being semi-regular, not super rare events. More »

Book Review: Think Like a Programmer

August 31st, 2012 No Comments   Posted in Uncategorized

MassDosage writes “After nearly 15 years or of writing code professionally it was refreshing to take a figurative step back and read a book aimed at people getting started with computer programming. As the title suggests, Think Like A Programmer tries to get to the core of the special way that good programmers think and how, when faced with large and complex problems, they successfully churn out software to solve these challenges in elegant and creative ways. The author has taught computer science for about as long as I’ve been programming and this shows in his writing.
