This is what I’ve been reading this past week.
- Four Temperaments and the Forms of Poetry
A thinky, verbose literary analysis of what ingredients writers bring to their work, and how those best interact. Focused pointedly on poetry, but I think it has value for anyone working creatively with the written word.
- Jessie Frazelle’s Blog: Government. Medicine. Capitalism?
What the software industry can learn from government and medicine, and generally good thoughts on management.
- Remembering The Grateful Dead’s ‘Wall of Sound’: An Absurd Feat of Technological Engineering
Another story about The Dead I didn’t think I’d enjoy, but here we are.
- Write code that is easy to delete
Great article on software design, but I think the broad principles are applicative to many creative fields, as well.
There it is, and here we are. Go forth.
