My posture immediately improved as soon as I clicked to add this goal to my list … if only the other goals were as easy to achieve … and of course, the jury is still out on whether / how often / how long I will continue to “have better posture”.
I’ve been away from 43things for a while, and I was really impressed with the positive sharing of experiences and support that appears to be taking place around this goal. I look forward to piggy-backing on all this great karma … er, piggy-backing with good posture, of course.
I first heard about Ruby when I met with Josh Petersen and his colleagues at the Robot Co-op. Everything I’ve heard about the language is not only positive, but passionate. Kathy Sierra, one of my favorite bloggers (and authors), has posted yet another positive and passionate entry about Ruby (and programming in general) to add further incentive. I also recently read Eric Raymond’s How to be a Hacker and Peter Norvig’s Teach Yourself Programming in Ten Years ... and [thus] recognize the value in branching out into new [to me] programming languages.
Life, and any given social networking service, is only as fun and useful as I (and others) make it.
