📚 Started reading: The Mythical Man-Month, by Frederick P. Brooks Jr. I never read this often-discussed collection of essays on computer programming management. Excited to dive in. I had it on my reading list before Frederick Brooks’ passing, but death has a way of re-arranging priorities.
📚 Finished reading: The Number Ones by Tom Breihan. I don’t respond to top 40 music in any era, but the stories are almost always fun and interesting, and the history of popular musical taste is fascinating. Tom Beihan writes so you can hear.
📚 Started reading: A Civic Technologist’s Practice Guide by Cyd Harrell. I only just started, but already I love the tone. Excited for insights.
📚 I’m #reading a collection of Edgar Allan Poe stories. Its enjoyable, but I’m also finding it hard to focus enough to follow the language all the time. It’s like only getting TV reception every other minute.
📚 Finished reading: The Road to React by Robin Wieruch. Took me over eight months. It was only meh.
I’m reading a Murakami story collection in an art gallery. Someone stops, mentions they read it, too. They move on, then come back.
I didn’t get the one with the ghost. I try to relate, but confuse it with a different story.
Maybe you haven’t read that one yet. Maybe I haven’t. It’s hard to hear through the masks. I say I have been letting the stories wash over me, feeling dumb. They are eager to leave. It all feels like a Murakami story.
