As I’m preparing to move stuff around on the various websites I’ve been involved in, I came across this weblog again.

Over five years of random thoughts and writings. Very low profile, but I know a couple of people have been tracking this weblog over the years. I hope you enjoyed it.

It’s time to move on. I’m ok with everything I wrote, but I’m also happy to leave these personal notes for what they are. A snapshot of these weblog posts will be kept on the server (bits are cheap), but this will be the last post.

Thanks for reading, and for occasionally responding and encouraging me. Have fun, both on and off the web - I know I will !

Learn math

Just found out about the Khan Academy. One man sets out to teach maths from the most basic to the most advanced, in clear and pleasant bite-sized chunks, and gives 1500+ video lectures away by placing them on YouTube. Here’s a story about it.

There’s a brief comment on his FAQ page which jumped out at me: “[...] I also try to watch very little television”. Bingo. Life’s too short to watch television. This guy shows just how much people can accomplish when they put their mind to it.


When asked about his religion, Salman Khan replied with this...

If you believe in trying to make the best of the finite number of years we have on this planet (while not making it any worse for anyone else), think that pride and self-righteousness are the cause of most conflict and negativity, and are humbled by the vastness and mystery of the Universe, then I'm the same religion as you.

Wow again.

Quid, no pro

As always, Seth is in a league of his own - 349 words. Brilliant.

Another dominant player

The dominant player I’m referring to is Adobe. I never liked Flash - it has “lock-in” written all over it. Always had. John Gruber (again) points to the proper comment about this little storm.

I kind of liked TUAW’s graphic - enough to add a reduced copy right here:


The blogosphere can be pretty boring at times. This is such a time. All the same stories, endlessly reverberating.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going back to tinkering in Jee Labs - so much more fun!


Apple is in the news a lot these days. Daring Fireball points to a weblog post about Apple’s position - and John Gruber says it all in his opening sentence: Brilliant, must-read piece by Stanislav Datskovskiy. Exactly.
