Steve Job's commencement speech at Stanford (2005)

I've been meaning to post this for quite a long time. But I guess I needed the excuse of b2evolution's new video plugin to actually do it...

In case you haven't seen this yet, watch it!

It is so inspiring! Steve Jobs at his best! ;)

Foolish humans

"Epitaph: Foolish humans, never escaped Earth."
-Vernor Vinge

Note: I like it even better without a coma after "humans" :>

Efficient vs. effective

Guy 1: I am so efficient I can fold 100 parachutes in a hour.

Guy 2: I am so effective I can fold 100 parachutes and every single one of them will open right.

Would you rather give your parachutes to the efficient or to the effective guy?

Now what I'd like to know is why all these programmers we interview pride themselves on being efficient?

I'm so sick of their industrial strength bug generating skills... :/
