CES’14 officially starts on January 7th (Tuesday, 2 days from now), but the participants are not wasting any time showcasing and teasing their new products to the media. Hopefully, I’ll be able and keep up with the most interesting bits from the big Vegas…

You may have heard about a Project Midori in the last few days. If you haven’t, I’ll try and catch you up to speed. You will see there’s a lot of speculation involved and the world as we know it is not coming to an end right away. However, I think this…

"Design and Destiny"
http://www.ted.com/talks/philippe_starck_thinks_deep_on_design.html

Brilliant #tedtalk  by Philippe Starck (@StarckOfficial) [without any slides!]

"After, there is people like me, who try to deserve to exist, and who are so ashamed to make this useless job, who try to do it in another way, and they try, I try, to not make the object for the object but for the result, for the profit for the human being, the person who will use it."
[...]
"OK, that means we are at half of the story. Fantastic! It's a beauty! Can you imagine? It's very symbolic. Because the bacteria we was had no idea of what we are today. And today, we have no idea of what we shall be in four billion years. And this territory is fantastic."
[...]
"And here is something: nobody is obliged to be a genius, but everybody is obliged to participate."
[...]
"That's why today I'm so ashamed to make this job. That's why I am here, to try to do it the best possible. But I know that even I do it the best possible -- that's why I'm the best -- it's nothing."
[...]
"much, we have now bring beautiful things, beautiful gifts, we know so many things. We can say to our children, OK, done, that was our story. That passed. Now you have a duty: invent a new story. Invent a new poetry. The only rule is, we have not to have any idea about the next story. We give you white pages. Invent. We give you the best tools, the best tools, and now, do it. That's why I continue to work, even if it's for toilet brush."

25 years since the Morris' worm.
 
I remember the very first Internet worm back in 1988. My computers got hit with it (at work). We /cough/ borrowed /end-cough/ an Internet connection from one of the handful of colleges in NJ that had access. Has it really been 25 years?
Mashable
In 1988, Cornell student Robert Morris released a worm onto the Internet, sending computers to a screeching halt. The industry looks back, 25 years later.

So.. a lovely piece by +K. Scott Allen > "Of Orcs and Software Craftsmanship"
http://odetocode.com/blogs/scott/archive/2014/01/27/of-orcs-and-software-craftsmanship.aspx
Honestly, I fell in love with the subplot about leap years, but don't stop there: the story goes deeper into the mind of a Craftsman (and how it is/should be driven by business considerations - the bit about sending rude emails is not true, and that's the story I'm sticking to : )
