The fundamental question of life, the universe and everything is the one popularized by the Verizon guy in the ad: Can you hear me now? This conclusion grew out of a conversation I had about a year…

Since most the people I see on here are devs, here's a link you'll probably enjoy. I've found this applicable in every developer position I've been in.

No one ever said that there was an easy answer to what it means to be human. :P

I think the more we have machines act and think like us, the deeper we probe into defining qualities that separate us from machines.

This article is very timely. With the time tracking / invoice tools at my disposal, I see I'm on track to clock in around 2400 hours of work this year, and that's probably an underestimate if you consider the overhead costs of multitasking and the non-countable time spent thinking about various work-related things that aren't tracked digitally. 

When I think about all that time spent in the bigger context of my life, it makes me feel like my life is currently running through the montage in the movie Looper (great sci-fi movie if you haven't seen it); I'm barreling through my prime economic-earning years of my life without much self-reflection about where I'm going to end up.

This is a good time to reflect about what's actually important in life. 
THE predictions sounded like promises: in the future, working hours would be short and vacations long. “Our grandchildren”, reckoned John Maynard Keynes in 1930,...

If the Name Don't Rhyme It Ain't Mine
Introduction
Some people are uncomfortable showing themselves for what they are. I'm fine with being what I am, dealing with the seemingly random influences that change me day to day, all the while of under guise that I'll always be the same person.
