  • We can’t all hire awesome programmers and we can’t all hire great team members, but you can consciously decide what you are going to get.  ;-)
  • Nice writeup on RAD Studio XE in SDTimes.
  • Remember when we were supposed to be wary of "chat rooms"? Do "chat rooms" even exist anymore?
  • Google looking at doing a tablet with Chrome OS?  My question:  What is the difference in Googles mind between Chrome OS and Android?  I would have thought that Google’s tablet would be Android based, but it appears that they are going to be using Chrome OS.  Huh.
  • My 11 year old son has done some pretty cool things with Scratch, so this article was of interest to me:  4 Tools for Teaching Kids to Code I am particularly interested App Inventor, which is for building Android apps.  That looks like something that might not just be for kids!
  • Here is a huge pet peeve for me:  Blogs that have “<—Previous Next—>” at the bottom.  Does previous mean “older” or “where you just were”?  Shouldn’t “Next” mean “I want to see the newer stuff”?  In addition, it never seems consistent.  How about “Older/Newer” instead?  That is obvious.

A Pithy Quote for You

"We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and then bid the geldings to be fruitful."    –  C. S. Lewis
