Underachievement

My parents recently purchased a vacation/retirement condo in Florida. All the family members reunited for the grand opening earlier this month. I was very impressed. The floor is all marble. The walls facing the Atlantic Ocean are completely glass window, and the curtains are shaded, so that sunlight does not

Triple Nine

Sorry for this self-indulgent post. It will probably be of interest to only 0.1% of you. I have been interviewing high schools students applying to Harvard College for the past three years. There are twice as many applications today as there were in my day, and the admittance rate has correspondingly

Distractions, II

I just finished my move and am developing again. I was away from my computer and the Internet for over a week as I focused on getting the move behind me. Right now, I have to make up for lost time. This move was unplanned and forced upon me by my

Finding Blogs

I plan on posting my OPML soon, but I am currently cleaning up and categorizing my current list of feeds. It looks like I have a little over 500 feeds right now. (I had, at one point, 1000, but aggressive purging of stale or uninteresting sites, I eliminated half of

Ideals

I just saw this nice quote in grack.com. I thought this to be appropriate to my entrepreneurial endeavor. ... fantasies have to be unrealistic. Because the moment, the second you get what you seek, you don’t, you can’t want it anymore. In order to continue to exist, desire must have

Development Fuel

Many developers live on soda. The obvious reason is the caffeine keeps the mind awake and highly functioning. Microsoft provides unlimited free soft drinks on campus mostly for this reason. I used to finish about eight cans of Diet Coke and other varieties a day when I developed there, but

Seeing Bill Gates's House

I went on a cruise with some other Microsoftees last Friday in a lake around Seattle (don't know if it is Lake Union or Lake Washington). I was able to pick out Bellevue with its skyscapers from the Eastside. Eventually, we went around Medina, and I was able to witness
