I found this diamond accidentally (well, not quite; I follow Jacob Applebaum), but I just might end up observing it closely. Kragen Thinking Out Loud, or a mailing list on which Kragen Sitaker shares his thoughts with the world. Something like a blog, but without the blog, RSS, etc.
Some great starters to get the hang of it:
- Goodbye, shitty Car extends Vehicle object-orientation tutorial;
- Why I do not want to work at Google;
- Peer-to-peer overlay networks are a bad idea on a DSL-based internet.
The last one is especially mind-tickling; it’s one of those texts one reads and gets an Instant Epiphany of some Basic Truth (in this case – that P2P cannot work effectively on an ADSL Internet connections, due to the dreaded A).
The second text I would like to wholeheartedly recommend to all the Apple and Google fans out there. No, no trolling.
Oh, and I just might add a newsletter functionality here on the brag for all of you that prefer the traditional way of getting their news.
