I’m a computer nerd. I’ve known since 1976 when then-six-year-old me played on a 110 baud printer terminal running on MUSIC/SP.
Some nerds of the time went on to greatness. I went on to helping write great software for people who did not know how to sell it. When someone throws out projects you’ve spent years building, there’s a small number of things left to do: have a burnout, feel like a failure, and play WoW stuffing down chips all day.
I don’t want that to happen to me, or anyone. So here I am, writing this blog, setting goals, sharing ideas. The Universe of data and computation is complex and unlimited. There’s still great software to write, new ideas to try out. Can I still be relevant?
This is a faily self-centered blog, so it’s no surprise that I will cover a lot of random stuff. Let me just throw out some keywords in any case: hacking, software engineering, software development, team management, development processes, role-playing games, tipping your postman, smart use of resources and whatever else strikes my fancy.
Now that the introduction is over, let’s see if I can come up with at least one original idea in this blog… My first goal: to get two comments!
