The way to create something beautiful is often to make subtle tweaks to something that already exists, or to combine existing ideas in a slightly new way. This kind of work is hard to convey in a research paper.

Reminds me of open source.

More very interesting stuff in the article.

Incidentally, Paul Graham is a LISP guy. =)

Moved back home

Papa picked me up yesterday and brought me home.

Catastrophix now has a nice, soft coat, and her eyes are starting to change color – bluish, I think.

Guess I’ll be moving back home next week. Still have to look for another place to stay; maybe the solo apartments near Miriam?
