dont forget what has been lost 

remember the streetcars, the google readers, the early movies, the books that were burned, and all the democratic governments that were overthown.

let noone tell you progress is a straight line.

opinions on screen size, long 

4:3 is a great size for a screen, and 16:9 is worse.

• most programs have toolbars on the top/bottom, meaning you use vertical space much more than horizontal space
• the extra horizontal space you have is often unused when reading documents
• most desks have a practically unlimited amount of vertical space, so making your screen taller is unlikely to get in the way of other things on your desk

Real-time audio programming 101: time waits for nothing

'You don’t want your software’s audio to glitch. Especially if your software is going to be used to perform to a stadium full of fans, or to watch a movie in a home theater, or to listen to a symphony in your car while you’re driving down the freeway, or anywhere really. It’s so fundamental I’ll say it again: you do not want your audio to glitch. Period.'
