Why Handwriting Must Die «

When a new writing technology develops, we tend to romanticize the older one. The supplanted technology is vaunted as more authentic because it is no longer ubiquitous or official. Thus for monks, print was capricious and script reliable. So too today: Conventional wisdom holds that computers are devoid of emotion and personality, and handwriting is the province of intimacy, originality and authenticity.

Aufregende Zeiten | law blog

Ich wage eine Prognose: Die Zeit von 1985 bis 201x, die wir vielleicht nur als leidlich aufregend empfanden bzw. empfinden werden, wird in den nur noch elektronisch abrufbaren Geschichtsbüchern künftiger Generationen einen ebenso großen Platz einnehmen wie das Römische Reich oder die Industrialisierung. Und zwar nicht in erster Linie wegen 09/11, sondern weil sich in dieser Zeitspanne der Herzschlag der Welt umstellte – von analog auf digital.

Reclaim Blogging – On Why Your Blog Still Is Your Best Personal Branding Social Tool | E L S U A ~ A KM Blog Thinking Outside The Inbox by Luis Suarez

Yes, it’s true that I have dumped a good number of social software tools out there on the Social Web in favour of G+ itself, or, at least, thanks to it I have reduced my involvement with those social tools quite a bit. But there are two of them that I am not ready, just yet, to kiss good-bye and move them into SNS. One of them is my Flickr account and the other one, of course, is my blog. This blog. And Hugh explains it very very well how I, too, feel about it overall on why I still think there is a place and a time for blogging out there on the Internet, as well as the Intranet, by the way. Here are a couple of noteworthy quotes from his blog entry I thought were worth while sharing across:

“The content on your blog, however, belongs to you, and you alone. People come to your online home, to hear what you have to say, not to hear what everybody else has to say. This sense of personal sovereignty is important.” [Emphasis mine]

The Art of Assembly Language Programming

So why would anyone learn this stuff, anyway? Well, there are several reasons which come to mind:
* Your major requires a course in assembly language; i.e., you’re here against your will. * A programmer where you work quit. Most of the source code left behind was written in assembly language and you were elected to maintain it. * Your boss has the audacity to insist that you write your code in assembly against your strongest wishes. * Your programs run just a little too slow, or are a little too large and you think assembly language might help you get your project under control. * You want to understand how computers actually work. * You’re interested in learning how to write efficient code. * You want to try something new.
