Quick thoughts

Had another great day at the office. Today's highlight was attending a keynote talk by Bill Gates. Sooo cool!

If you read my blog via the Atom feed, this is a heads up that I've done a little bit of updating to the sidebar. Last night, I watched Monsoon Wedding, and tonight Maria Full of Grace. Both were absolutely amazing, and I highly recommend checking them out. Not many movies score a 93% and 97% (respectively) on rottentomatoes.com.

I've also added a link to another great book: Unlocking the Clubhouse: Women in Computing. It's an amazing read, exploring the challenges facing women in computing - from birth through college. Everyone should read this book, whether you're passionate about computing or not, it'll strike a chord with you. When I read, I booktab pages that make insightful points I'd never thought of previously. This gem, at only 150 pages, came in at 17 tabs. I've read longer books in the past few months that have received zero tabs (they don't get written about here because it isn't worth my time). So again, I highly suggest checking it out, and thanks to Jill for the copy (and to Microsoft for donating it along with ~40 others to be circulated around the University of Michigan).

Finally, I clipped a post by Kevin Schofield on BitTorrent and Avalanche that I found to be a good read. What a mess. I'll let you do your own research and draw your own conclusions.

That's all for now. Goodnight!

Yay! I'm glad you enjoyed it - we'll have to discuss sometime.
