  • We can’t all hire awesome programmers and we can’t all hire great team members, but you can consciously decide what you are going to get.  ;-)
  • Nice writeup on RAD Studio XE in SDTimes.
  • Remember when we were supposed to be wary of "chat rooms"? Do "chat rooms" even exist anymore?
  • Google looking at doing a tablet with Chrome OS?  My question:  What is the difference in Googles mind between Chrome OS and Android?  I would have thought that Google’s tablet would be Android based, but it appears that they are going to be using Chrome OS.  Huh.
  • My 11 year old son has done some pretty cool things with Scratch, so this article was of interest to me:  4 Tools for Teaching Kids to Code I am particularly interested App Inventor, which is for building Android apps.  That looks like something that might not just be for kids!
  • Here is a huge pet peeve for me:  Blogs that have “<—Previous Next—>” at the bottom.  Does previous mean “older” or “where you just were”?  Shouldn’t “Next” mean “I want to see the newer stuff”?  In addition, it never seems consistent.  How about “Older/Newer” instead?  That is obvious.
