TCLP 2007-10-24 Inner Chapter: Will (Comment Line 360-252-7284)

This is a feature cast.

I talk about this month’s DC CopyNight that I attended last night. Also, a reminder to get questions in to me for consideration as part of my interview with Professor Lessig. I will be talking with him tentatively on November 7th.

I will be taking a vacation this coming week so I do not plan on releasing a show for either Sunday the 28th or Wednesday the 31st. The next show will be a news cast on November the 4th.

The hacker word of the week this week is Conway’s Law.

The feature this week is an Inner Chapter on will.

Download the show directly. Grab the detailed show notes with time offsets and additional links either as PDF or OPML.

  1. Hey cmdln

    I really enjoyed the feeling of recognition listenning to this episode’s inner chapter 😉 I put a lot of energy into making some useful but boring actions easier, great deal of the initial system design, or may be one of the most important underlying principles in our design is – how easy can we (programmers) do X during at implentation time, where X is something we’d want to do often.

    About commening the code, I have my own trick – a motivational mantra if you please – whenever I am about to submit my new code for integration, at my last refactoring rounds, I comment new data structures and algorithms and commit them to SCM with a log message “commented as if my life depended on it”. This sort of forces me to do a good job – the commit has to live up to its log message 🙂
