OK, I promised I would be good. At the beginning of this year, I made myself a promise not to be a cynical “you know what” when it comes to the world of software development. Lord knows I have seen my fare share of Dilbertesque wackyisms over the last 17 years in this biz. Heck, I even contributed back to the industry with my own open source project. I felt it was giving back to the software world, that has been so kind to me, but then again maybe it is some form of redemption. I don’t know. Maybe that is why I have had only one post so far this year.
