The Live Coding Music Synth for Everyone

Yesterday I had the pleasure of hearing Sam Aaron speak and perform, at Cerner’s internal developer conference, DevCon. His message was pretty simple. When you were in school, did you learn to read to become a professional reader? Did you learn to write to become a professional writer? Probably not. Why then, did you bother learning it? It’s because in this day and age, to not be able to read and write is generally deemed unacceptable, and leaves you at a distinct disadvantage.


Creating a gpg key

A few days ago as I was browsing around the internet, I noticed a new broadcast by the folks over at GitHub. “GPG signature verification - You can now verify GPG signed commits and tags!”. (Check out the broadcast here.) Well that’s cool I thought; I have heard of GPG, or PGP, or something like that. Needless to say, I should look into this more. Besides, who doesn’t want to spend Monday night reading about cryptography just for the fun of it?

Take what you can, give nothing back.
