Chelsea Troy has an amazing brain: She writes articles like this in real-time, while the presentation is in progress! Here's an article she wrote about my recent visit to Groupon. If you like robots and software development, you might enjoy this, too.

RubyMotion is a tool that lets Ruby developers write native iOS apps using the Ruby language. It's based on MacRuby which is an implementation of the Ruby language for Mac OS X. This video will introduce RubyMotion with some simple live code demos and a twist of TDD. The level is introductory; you don't need to know Ruby or iOS to watch.

I have known Robin Jackson for over twenty years, and I was one of her first clients when she opened her State Farm office a few years ago. Robin has intelligence, integrity, and energy, three traits that Warren Buffett looks for in successful leaders. When a policy is ready to expire, Robin is proactively on the case with insightful counsel. I highly recommend Robin Jackson's State Farm Agency to anyone who needs insurance.
