A few days ago, I'd asked for a word that had the expert connotation of "leader" without the hierarchy. In Spain, the word is "dinamizador." In English, "dynamo" means both a "generator" and "an extremely energetic person." Let's make dynamo happen.

I had a nightmare about walking home in front of a bunch of houses being built that I could never get a mortgage for.

18-year-old Ed believed without doubt that everyone had the power to reduce the amount of suffering in the world, even if only a little.

If anyone needs a python priority queue with a BSD/MIT/GPLv3 license: github.com/elplatt/python-prio

Priority queue code works, passes unit tests, now just a simple matter of documentation.

There's something calming about watching the occasional snow plow saunter down an otherwise empty major road.

Anyone have thoughts on ways to organize projects/portfolios on a homepage? Applying to internships and not sure how separate to keep professional stuff from silly side-projects.

Looks like it's finally time to read Habermas.
