If you think you’ve done

If you think you’ve done it all on the web and there’s nothing cool left to build, check this out. Philip Greenspun strikes again. Being able to spend time with him last June when I went to Boston for sister’s award ceremony was an eye-opening experience. I’ve used that inspiration at work to crank out some pretty amazing stuff. Now, I’m starting his latest textbook, and damned if I don’t have a long way to go. It’s exciting and depressing at the same time. There are so many things that could be done, but not enough people doing them. It’s time to take your creativity and apply it to problems. Don’t build everything the same old way. Try something new. Take a chance. Hell, just go read the book and get inspired.
