  • Prometheus

    I saw Prometheus in glorious IMAX 3D on opening weekend, and thoroughly enjoyed the film. It starts off with sweeping vistas of pristine landscapes, which look beautiful on the big IMAX screen. There were a lot of callbacks to the original Alien movie, most of them subtle. Some as simple as the Prometheus having a…

  • The Art of Programming Without Programming

    As I have been working on Debtor, my iOS app, I’ve come to realize that half of the work of programming is done away from the computer. It’s a cycle, and it goes like this: I spend many minutes, perhaps hours, coding and reviewing API documentation to build my application. I get stuck on a…

  • Birthday Party

    I took this photo as the birthday girl was opening her presents. The bright light is from the flash of another camera. I thought this image really captured the moment.

  • So Tired

    I’ve been so tired lately, because of this little guy. But it’s so worth it.

Got any book recommendations?
