- Coding Horror: On Our Project, We're Always 90% Done - A great description of the 90% done--only 90% left to do--problem.
- Damian Conway, Thoughtstream: "Temporally Quaquaversal Virtual Nanomachine Programming In Multiple Topologically Connected Quantum-Relativistic Parallel Timespaces...Made Easy!" - O'Reilly Open Source Convention on blip.tv - Video from this year's OSCON now up. I haven't watched how they come across on the video but some of the more interesting presos at the original include Damina Conway, Tim Bray, Sam Ramjhi, Danese Cooper, and Robert Lefkowitz.
- Oracle's Burlington complex to double in size - The Boston Globe - Guess proprietary software isn't dead yet.
- Cool Tool: Free topo maps - As the post says, buying topo CDs isn't cheap. I'll have to look at these free alternatives.
- tecosystems » Will There Be Only One Cloud? - I'm probably between the extremes here. I'm not sure I really buy the "five computers" theme but I think there could be more centralization. Would like to understand the economics of scale better.
- Free Online Course Materials | MIT OpenCourseWare - OCW is more a resource for creating courses than for getting access to MIT course "out of the box" but a great resource nonetheless.
