An experiment in… something.

As many of my long-term readers know, I’m often promising new content that never shows up. Partially it’s because the last 6 months have been absolutely nuts for me, and partially it’s because I have a problem with perfection. I know I have a problem with perfection and I fight it, but let’s face it, […]

Charity & Ruby down in Texas

Thought I’d steal a moment of your time to pimp a good education and a good cause: The Lone Star Ruby Conference might be sold out, but you still have a chance to snag a seat at the pre-conference charity workshop.
