Software Engineering in WordPress and Musings on the Deep Life

This week, I had the pleasure to be interviewed by Mike Dariano of 27 Good Things for nine different things that I recommend people read, watch, and/or use.

Though you can read the article in full, here’s one item from each topic that I mentioned:

  • Good Things To ReadThe Complete Calvin and Hobbes
  • Good Things To WatchIndie Game: The Movie
  • Good Things To UseHero Academy

But that’s only part of it – there’s lots more to read so check it out and feel free to leave comment on what you like (or dislike).

Mike’s goal is to contact a number of different people, get them to do the same, and share their opinions as well. It’s a pretty neat concept for a blog – I recommend checking it out.

    Hi Tom, I just discovered your blog. I loved X-Files also, especially the episode “Kill Switch” featuring the song “Twilight Time”. Congratulations on your Ga Tech CS Degree! When I was a senior in high school I really wanted a TRS-80 Model 4 computer and I wanted to go to Ga Tech and study CS. But I went into the Air Force and became a radar mechanic. Now 30 years later I am starting to pursue my dream of becoming a Computer Programmer! I am a total noob. The cool things I am starting to use are Windows 7, Codecademy, JavaScript, Sublime Text 2, and WorkFlowy. I really enjoy your articles!

      Hey James – thanks so much for the comment! I love hearing from other people with similar interests.

      Anyway, I dig that you’re getting into programming – and props on working hard on it. Stick with it, it’s a journey :).
