It was mostly so. Some parts are suffering from the typical carribean poverty. Local people seem mostly well cared for and welcoming of the tourists, but like most of the islands there just isn't much opportunity for work and the poverty can be crushing. Crushing poverty in paradise is probably better than crushing poverty in Detroit, but it still kinda sucks.

There's nothing like plus-1ing a post on your own site, run on your home Linux box, on Drupal, about your Windows Phone 7 device, to put it on google plus. #winning

At the http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/GoingNative/GoingNative-2012 Going Native conference... watch it live. Who knew C++ standup comedy could be so awesome. Ok, the music is stuck in the 70s, but otherwise pretty amazing.

My Kindle arrived. It's the precious. We loves it. Loaded with technical books from the Microsoft library, some books I've meant to read checked out from our local library (yay, 21st century!) and my existing library of 100 or so books already in the Kindle system.

The thing is unbelievably light, and e-ink is wonderful for reading. I'm glad I waited until this rev, it's really slick.

So, as someone new to Microsoft, feasting on a steady diet of the MS dog food, I hearty endorse this post. More importantly, as someone formally trained in computer science and software engineering ages ago when you fed computers punch cards and you though that was cool (with the dated, obsolete degrees to prove it) I can tell you without a doubt that THIS is what should be taught to undergrad CS majors. First year. Heck, every year.

You've probably already read it, but if you haven't - do it. Read it all. Totally worth the time.
Stevey's Google Platforms Rant I was at Amazon for about six and a half years, and now I've been at Google for that long. One thing that struck me…

Interesting read... and not many posts to it here on gplus. Shocking.
This blog is the original work of James Whittaker and contains his rants and insights about the web, engineering practices, software testing and other predictions about the future of technology.

The kickstarter project for my brother's book. Pledge now. Operators are standing by.
Nonfiction, fiction, you tell me. It starts with a dream, 30,000 years ago. It's one man's amazing journey, to understand women...

Now THIS is a refreshing take on the future.
It's a lot of this sort of thing. As it happens, designing Future Interfaces For The Future used to be my line of work. I had the opportunity to design with real working prototypes, not green scre...

Speaking of eating dog food... #onenote 2010... yeah, actually pretty amazingly useful. Can access stuff from iPhone, too. Needs #hashtags though.

OneNote works (freely) as a web app, inside of your live/skydrive. Create a onenote notebook there, and the free iPhone app can open/edit it too. The PC native app isn't free, its part of the office suite/bundle of apps, and cost $80 stand alone if you're buying piecemeal. There isn't a Mac or Android app (although the web app works on Mac)

iOS 5 even on the iPhone 4 is clearly an improvement.
