Important Things 1

Dancing is important. I encourage everyone to try it at least once in public, and often in private. I think its essentail for all bodies, even if its only monthly. Its like singing, it doesn't matter how good you are at it, its good for you. For those who don't know where to start, try here (Melbourne and Sydney) for structured dance with room to move, and here (Melbourne) for more flexible antics.

Book Review - Hackers and Painters

I'm not through this book yet, but its a must read for anyone who has to work in a mangement capacity or with programming. Not that I'm a programmer (though I do get some exposure) but the principals are transferable and essential for anyone who wants to be respected as an efficient and useful part of a team... ... AND its a good enjoyable read, very comfortable language, and even the chapters that discuss code and programming are accessible. :)

13 Aug 04 - I've finished the book now and I still think its very important, but there were some particularly technical paragraphs that I skipped. Still, I encourage all who have any interest in applications or programming to read this one as soon as they are able...
