Atom as a Case Study · This is adapt­ed from my talk of the same name at ETech 2006. The talk’s sec­tions were en­ti­tled Why?, How?, What?, and Les­son­s?; I’ve left out What?, the de­scrip­tion of what Atom is, since we’ve had plen­ty of that around here. That leaves Why we built it, How we built it, and what Les­sons you might want take away from the ex­pe­ri­ence ...
 
Hypocrisy · Maybe in an ide­al world We’d All Just Get Along and there wouldn’t be at­tack blog­ger­s, but that’s not where we live, and if we have to have at­tack blog­gers I think we should have good ones. My fave is Bill­mon, and he’s just fired off one of the best take-downs ev­er.

I didn’t get any good rho­do shot­s, but with mag­no­lias you can’t mis­s.
