Dear GCC,

It has been 16 years, perhaps it is time for C99  to become the default.  C89 users can learn to adapt...

Yours,
J

PS: Please expect this letter again in 12 years regarding C11...

I am still trying to figure out Mr Vogel's motivations.  Personally (and this is subjective) I feel his videos miss the mark as art;  They aren't funny enough (again subjective) to be comedy; and the props to unrealistic (not subjective) to be convincing hoaxes. 

Honestly, they feel like pieces for a vfx reel...

Update: I knew Vogel sounded familiar, he was the director who did the fantastic "Picture Book" commercial for HP.  He is responsible for other great commercials as well.

So why do the videos in his chanel fall so flat for me? I wonder if — like so many other creative people — he needs to work toward someone else's goal to achieve his best work.  Perhaps he doesn't know what he really wanted to do with them either.

Anyone have a 2012 or 2013 Nexus 7 they are interested in parting with?

+Nike Dear Nike, I love that you are offering your employees a bike share program, but maybe you could put in some extra bike racks so that other people can ride their bikes (or in my case the segway hanging off the side).  Picture taken at the Beaverton Creek Park & Ride...

Bravo. You have adequately summarized my own feelings on expertise and learning.

I will tell you that I learned even less electronics than you when I was young, much to the chagrin of my ham radio licensed, professional radio technician father. So you have always appeared as an expert to me in that regard.

My personal opinion is that if that uncomfortable, fraudulent feeling ever goes away, if you spend too high a percentage of your professional time feeling like you really have everything figured out, then it may be time to start seeking new challenges to make yourself uncomfortable with.

It's like an RPG. They have to give you a sense of ability progression, some battles have to feel easier, but if the last half of the game is a repeating series of trivial, easily resolved battles, it would be super boring. :)

I am afraid I am going to be a bit of a pest. For whatever reason the stars aligned and I find myself wanting to sing the praises of the Matchstick. I think they are onto something great (if you are interested in this sort of thing), and have a chance to be a real competitor to the Chromecast.

So take a moment to visit the site, and if it looks cool, consider backing it.
Matchstick, the first HDMI stick based on Firefox OS, is the best way to experience your favorite movies, music, and games on your HDTV

I am very excited to be an Advisor on this project. Another Brick In The Road is trying to fix the disconnect between people who have surplus goods, clothing, etc and the charities who need them.

Instead of the charity trying to find donors, now donors can be more proactive and find the right charity for them. Declutter your life, and give your stuff to people who need it.It is launching in Mumbai (aka Bombay) — why the incredibly talented +Luanne Misquitta  is located; but wants to expand, craigslist like, across the globe.

They are raising their (modest) initial investment on Indiegogo right now, so please go there and donate. This is an idea that deserves to be tried. Be Another Brick in the Road...
Find someone who needs your stuff. Give it away. Be another brick in the road.
