"You move as a rower moves: facing backwards. You can see where you've been, but not where you're going. And your boat is steered by a younger version of you." Beautiful.

Wow, my "Play Framework at LinkedIn" talk has cracked 50,000 views. Not bad for an hour long, live-coding tech talk. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8z3h4Uv9YbE

Migrating from Blogger to GitHub Pages and launching the new ybrikman.com. Learn some design, code, and a few hacks here. [New blog post] http://www.ybrikman.com/writing/2015/04/20/migrating-from-blogger-to-github-pages/
Around 2007, I created my home page on a free PHP host and a blog on Blogger. The two websites have served me well for nearly 8 years, but they were long pastdue for an update. Last week, I finally sat down and rebuilt my home page ontop of Jekyll, GitHub Pages, and Basscss, migrated my blog into it, and launched the new ybrikman.com:

Most programmers don't read books (http://blog.codinghorror.com/programmers-dont-read-books-but-you-should/) or code (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1660754.The_Psychology_of_Computer_Programming). They only learn by writing code and reinventing the wheel. No wonder 30+ year old languages like C and C++ still dominate. We aren't learning from our predecessors.
But the majority of people still don't read. Or write. The majority of developers don't read books about software development, they don't read Web sites about software development, they don't even read Slashdot. If programmers don't learn from books today, how do they learn to program?

In literature, The Competent (Wo)man is a character who exhibits a very wide range of abilities and knowledge. The idea is similar to a Polymath or a Renaissance (Wo)man, and captured beautifully in this quote by Robert A. Heinlein:
