Hardtop Vidcast

Working on my first vidcast.

Thinking was this would be quicker than writing up a tech note for the design ... maybe I misjudged the effort involved in creating a video :-/

Bombay Mix

The Bombay Mix at New India Bazaar is not spicy enough! I expected Bombay Mix in the Indian shop to be spicier than the Bombay Mix in the British shop (certainly not less spicy).

And, no offense, but, why is it still called "Bombay" Mix? I can understand the British shop still calling it Bombay mix, but shouldn't the Indian shop call it something else ...

I know, I know, I have better things to do with my time than complain about snack foods!

User interface designers invade Silicon Valley ... WTF!

... Facebook, for example, has begun assigning a designer to consult with a team of engineers led by a project manager.

Excuse me, I think we've always done it that way! Some journalist apparently has never worked in the real world.
