This had me laughing and feeling sorry for DHH. I've never heard of him before today but all I could think of the entire time was, this guy is talking about amateur problems. It's ok to be an amateur, and ya...most people do TDD wrong. But let's not confuse that with the fact that bad practices have led to his issues LOL. What a riot.

The good practise of TDD is this: do not do TDD, but instead write very simple tests for each method you create.

Check every piece of code you write. But let your own creativity drive the design, because you only have the needed information when doing not before.

I love how she references a case where the law destroys a ladies life because she smoked a flower, then blames it on the flower, instead of the fact that the law was clearly the reason that her life was ruined...not the pot

My usual argument is that pot has wrecked considerably fewer lives than the legal system does.

Thanks Stephen for posting this. It really is a great concept and his book "The Vertical Farm" does the concept more justice. I really do hope that we figure this out and move toward sustainable communities instead of the horribly inefficient way we get our food currently.

Vertical Farming
I'm not sure if this would work. Thinking about the irrigation and the sunlight. OK it might work, but I'm pretty sure whatever you grow there will have almost no taste.

I definitely get your drift on that one. I approach it from a strictly "best food" perspective. The "best yield" method is disgusting and regardless of how its grown the food will be lacking nutrient. I prefer my method...but I'm also biased because I kinda invented it.

I drank and cooked on a gas stove once, and burned my house down by accident. We should probably outlaw alcohol

Any Bassheads out there that can recommend a great pair of overear headphones with great bass line that doesn't bleed into the other ranges? I've read some reviews but would like to hear from y'all what you think.

Introduction
An auto-didactic with a passion for life, math, software and sustainability. I'm a huge believer in open source even though I haven't much contributed to any projects(something I hope to fix). On top of being a ridiculous geek, I'm also a bit of an adrenaline junkie, and experience whore. Seriously, If I haven't done its new to me, and that must be remedied!
