anyone know a good GUI school?

So, clearly, some of us need to go to GUI school 🙂 The GNoTE website was something we slapped together real quick. And we didn’t do a good job of it. The site was meant to be über-simple, and we traded aesthetics for simplicity. Lesson learned. Bad developer evangelist! This is the first thing we’ll look to fix after…

R.I.P, my SDA

I pronounced it – at 4pm on 11/22/2006, my SDA died of severe complications. The complications started at around noon on Wednesday, when my friend Sharran, was driving up to visit me. He called, and I almost answered but I didn’t. Then I called him right back, while he was calling me back. And something…

And, in the news today…

I open up start.com and I see two Purdue-related articles in my feeds. Completely unrelated however : Here’re the two articles : Purdue Streams a Movie At 7.5Gb/sec Two Purdue players arrested, won’t play at Hawaii Go Boilers! “ai” Technorati tags: purdue, purdue football, bandwidth challenge

Sleepless in Ann Arbor? In Columbus?

Early this year, the USC Texas game was touted as the biggestest game ever. It made sense  – they were the two best teams at the time. That was the National Championship Game. The National Championship. This time round, the biggestest game of the year is going to be just another Big Ten game. I’ve…

my new favorite show – FNL

“Friday Night Lights“. Love the show. The drama’s gripping. The cinematography is awesome. The story is way too predictable in a lot of ways, like the starting QB, who gets knocked out of the game and gets hospitalized in the first episode, and his cheerleader girlfriend who’s stunningly gorgeous hooks up with his BFF, right, who is also…

Launching GNoTE

It’s very uncommon for me to get through a day without being asked what my official title (‘Developer Evangelist’) actually means. I typically ask people what they think the title means in return, and I get a lot of different answers. And typically in about a minute, we reach a middle-ground of understanding about what…

my LINQ slides

Sorry for the delay in getting these out… Here are the slides I’ve been using for my LINQ talks. If you want a recap of what I’d covered, you can watch a recording of the webcast I’d done. Special thanks to Scott Guthrie and Kashif Alam – I’d borrowed content from their slides and demos. “ai”…

my death space?

Considering all the talk of death that’s been happening around me lately, I found it eerily coincidental when my friend pointed me to mydeathspace.com. What’s scary is howmany “articles” (obituaries) on the site cite the cause of death as an automobile accident.  I can see my mydeathspace obituary now – “ai died while trying to get off a…
