it was given to me by my little sister when we were young and i have liked it ever since.

software engineering sees its practitioners as individuals who follow well-defined engineering approaches to problem-solving. these approaches are specified in various software engineering books and research papers, always with the connotations of predictability, precision, mitigated risk and professionalism.-- wikipedia on "software engineering"
my coworker damian edwards and i hypothesize that there is another kind of developer than the ones we meet all the time. we call them dark matter developers. they don't read a lot of blogs, they never write blogs, they don't go to user groups, they don't tweet or facebook, and you don't often see them at large conferences. where are these dark matter developers online?-- scott hanselman on "dark matter developers"
despite that i am very active in the free and open source world. i am obsessed with learning, especially about technology. which is why i am unbeliveably happy to live in times when internet access is cheap and a lot of human knowledge as well.
