Teaching myself Scala. There's a whole world out there beyond the kernel. Some people call it "revenue space", others call it "userspace".

This weekend, I hiked Mt. Washington, ran a half marathon, and took in a long bike ride before checking out Capoeira for the first time. Also did a lot of thinking. I need more of these outdoor adventures back in my life. I have been married to certain work projects too much.

There are so many national parks and monuments.  They're all freaking awesome.  Collect them all!

If Canonical goes public, they have to operate in the interests of their shareholders, which won't necessarily include building phones and many of the other things they've gotten into over the past few years. It will also mean giving up control of the organization, and becoming a potential acquisition target for any number of others who (for whatever reason) want their own pet OS. I can't see it actually happening, unless the end is otherwise nigh.

I wonder how much money they've burned in all these years.

It's already a given fact that Republicans in Congress are selfish, uncaring losers. Saddening to hear about the impact of the export/import bank's likely demise on development projects overseas. My solution is to blame those who don't vote: next election, if you want the GOP out, you know what you need to do.

Listening to the United States v. Microsoft court recordings. Always good to think about potentially illegal monopoly practice and its consequences on a Sunday morning. There are plenty of contemporary examples of monopolies and monopolistic practices, so it's good to understand what constitutes legal and illegal practices.

I called up, made a reservation for a specific time, and then when I called back at the time they were supposed to arrive, they swore blindly that they had never even spoken with me. Very unimpressed.
