Winning Isn’t Normal is a great blog post by Jason Shen about just how much goes into being good at something. Particularly great is this quote: Remember one thing… winning isn’t normal. That doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with winning. It just isn’t the norm. It is highly unusual … So it requires unusual […]

Learning Shakespeare in High School is done more out of tradition than practicality. Lets face it, there’s little to learn in Romeo & Juliet that you can’t learn watching MTV or Jerry Springer except perhaps Iambic pentameter. One of the notable exceptions is Act I Scene III of Hamet when Lord Polonius gives some advice […]
I’ve got 1 more final tomorrow evening, and I’m pretty much done (one assignment left, but that’s no big deal). Sorry for recycling old images, but that one really seems pretty accurate. I think it’s bed time, so I can get up early and enjoy some more studying.
While some will be at the Firefox Summit, or enjoying the snow expected this week around here, I’m getting ready for some finals. Needless to say, my availability will be limited at some times during the next few weeks. So if you don’t get a reply from me, don’t think I’m ignoring you, your just […]

Spent most of the afternoon working on my Principles of System Design Project (crossing another off the todo list). Also hacked up a really cool toy that you will see hopefully in the next couple of days. Next up is a History of American Art paper.
I got my Mac Mini back today. Bliss. Airport Extreme/Bluetooth card for $99+tax. I decided to officially name the system “mini me”. I’m having fun already, though I got to get some sleep, and go back to school tomorrow… looking forward to the next time I get to play with my mini. 😉
Every so often it becomes necessary to make a todo list public so I actually feel motivated. Without further delay: Finally write that cheesy International Business Paper (4 pages double spaced, on pretty much anything) [4/14/05] Finally write that History of American Art Paper (no clue how long, more complex, and really boring)… this is […]
