Philippines 2.0

Joey de Villa posted a very interesting article on how to be Silicon Valley. Geeks at home: read this and let’s make it happen. We don’t need to be Silicon Valley, but we can still do something really cool.

(Incidentally, Joey’s from Manila, and he now works at Tucows in Toronto.)

Cooking

My cooking misadventures always seem to draw the most comments. I guess it’s because people here don’t want me to accidentally poison myself. ;) Cooking is a very geeky thing to do. That said, most geeks are new to the whole shebang also, and it’s nice to know that other people are struggling with the same issues, and some have even figured them out!

So yeah, even if the prevailing wisdom is that people should write topic-focused blogs so that they don’t bother your readers, I’m still going to mix my cooking stories with my research stories and whatnot… =)

Linux Device Driver Kit

Always wanted to write a kernel device driver but never got around to it? Now you have no excuse! Check out the Linux Driver Development Kit, which includes:

everything that a Linux device driver author would need in order to create Linux drivers, including a full copy of the O’Reilly book, “Linux Device Drivers, third edition” and pre-built copies of all of the in-kernel docbook documentation for easy browsing. It even has a copy of the Linux source code that you can directly build external kernel modules against.

Totally cool.
