Digressions On Itinerant Geekery
Where are the comments?

There aren't any. This isn't really that kind of site -- it's intended to be mostly informational, rather than a social gathering place. Also this is very tiny corner of the blogiverse, and a good commenting community requires a fairly large critical mass of regular readers. And, finally, I don't have time to put in the moderation effort required to keep the spam, flames, etc. under control.

That said, I'm happy to hear from anyone who wants to engage in a serious way on any of the stuff on this site. Just send me an email (jackindavao@gmail.com).

Today's Quote

"There may be types of work that can only be done in long, uninterrupted stretches, when inspiration hits, rather than dutifully in scheduled little slices. Empirically it seems to be so. When I think of the people I know who've done great things, I don't imagine them dutifully crossing items off to-do lists. I imagine them sneaking off to work on some new idea. Conversely, forcing someone to perform errands synchronously is bound to limit their productivity. The cost of an interruption is not just the time it takes, but that it breaks the time on either side in half. You probably only have to interrupt someone a couple times a day before they're unable to work on hard problems at all."
