1. Talked to a random stranger today : 22:09

On the shuttle home from Libis, I chatted with Robert Rabago, an IBM communications intern who had recognized me from the Computer Eyes workshop. He's from Asia-Pacific College, seems to be an easy-going sort of person. Interested in conservation, so I should probably Cc Kathy.

(Why was I in Libis? I've been helping out with the Computer Eyes workshop - IBM's two-week computer training for blind people. I'm learning a lot of shortcuts, and it's just like helping newbies who still haven't gotten the hang of Windows - great practice!)

'Dumb IT hiring practices'


I've seen the situation described in this article oh-so-often in real life.

'The Reality/Salary Scale'


This situation described is surreal but I believe is what really happens in the real world. Seems like the tradeoff of having a high salary is you don't get to do anything of real value(!)

Angrycoder is an MS-technology oriented site (barely any mention of Open Source stuff) but visitors and writers do not pull any punches when criticizing the technologies they use. I knew there had to be people out there who depend on M$ technologies but who know how to bitch about its flaws (with velvet gloves off). The cartoons will make you laugh and cry at the same time. :-D
