  1. Pushing the problems around →

    There is currently no easy way to determine where the canonical data in a complex system resides and how it is updated, and my bet is we will see a new set of tools and languages evolve to create abstractions which will make it possible for mere mortal programmers like myself to get these architectures right.

  2. Michael Tsai on Mac App Restrictions →

    It’s no longer possible to write a single app that takes advantage of the full range of Mac OS X features. Some APIs only work inside the Mac App Store. Others only work outside it. Presumably, this gap will widen as more new features are App Store–exclusive, while sandboxing places greater restrictions on what App Store apps are allowed to do.

  3. Is anyone else seeing a large influx in LinkedIn and Facebook invite SPAM? For me it’s been the last few weeks.

  4. My Logitech MX Revolution mouse is starting to fail (phantom clicks, etc.). Recommendations on a replacement? Must not be Bluetooth.

  5. Played a few hours of doubles before my 4’s volleyball league tonight. Turns out I’m not in that kind of shape anymore – sore and tired!

  6. NEXT TIME SOMEONE REMIND ME THERE IS A SMOKE DETECTOR IN THE FURNACE ROOM… GEESH

  7. ONE OF THESE SMOKE DETECTORS IS BEEPING AND IT’S NOT THIS ONE AND NOW I CAN’T GET IT TO CLICK BACK IN PLACE AND NOW MY ARMS ARE TIRED
