Karlin interviews William Gibson

Karlin has posted some thoughts on an interview she did today with him. The text of the interview will run in the Irish time around the end of this week. Must get it! I am definitely going to read Pattern Recognition, his new book, once the work surrounding the beta release subsides. As I've said before, I think that Gibson is one of the best writers ever, and not science fiction writers, but writers, period. Very cool.

Chandler 0.1

OSAF has released Chandler 0.1. Russ is a bit dissapointed (he also posted a screenshot). I haven't had time to download it yet, even less to run it. Interesting though.

good software takes ten years

I found this old article from Joel on Sofware: "Good software takes ten years, get used to it." I don't agree with the ten-year rule for adoption, (I'd say that a large percentage of the most commonly used software today did not have ten years of evolution under its wing before it was massively adopted, most notably web browsers, and a ton of web applications. As for the product to be mature, and not require more updates, ten years is probably right.

In any case, a great read.
