Once that’s done, I’ll hopefully have some time to set up my Raspberry Pi.
The worst part of it is that I’ve been looking for a good book on statistics. This is because of an inspiring talk a (former) co-worker gave on traffic acquisition. Of course, I still haven’t gotten all the way through Landing Page Optimization, but I will, I promise! Web Analytics 2.0 is also still on the list.
I have dreams of teaching my children to use the Linux command line before letting them at a real GUI, but this is, of course, ridiculous. Even the 8 month old is already using (i.e., biting) her mom’s iPhone.
It isn’t that youth is wasted on the young – it’s that time (and sleep!) is wasted on the childless.
I’ve never understood people who wanted to spend their vacations lying on the beach (and me, a California boy!). So much to read, so little time!
Update: It occurs to me that I posted this without a shred of context, so here it is. I had a great conversation with a colleague on Friday, during which we talked about the difference between technical leaders who stayed technical, and those who eventually lost their coding mojo. Later that day, I came home and saw the stack of books I’m trying to get through. It’s frustrating to have a copy of Scala for the Impatient, but no time to get to it! This got me thinking, and voila, le blog.
