Last time I listed books without a review, somebody accused me of wasting their time — just a list without any reviews?
I decided to go ahead and add sci-fi to my hn-books site. Lots of hackers love sci-fi too, and there’s more to life than startups or hacking — at least that’s what they tell me.
Also I found a pretty cool interview video and put over on the hn-books site where Vinge talks about his opinion about the coming singularity.
We’ll see how this new topic idea does. Maybe I’ll do some more. Who knows? I’m reading “Containment” right now — trying to finish it up before heading back to work. So far I have very mixed feelings about it, though. It could end up being my first “don’t read this” review. We’ll see.
The hn-books site continues to make a little money here and there. It’s an interesting-enough experiment to keep up for a while. (I liked it enough that I’m working on a similar site for fans of electronics gear. Hope to be able to announce that one sometime in January)If you've read this far and you're interested in Agile, you should take my No-frills Agile Tune-up Email Course, and follow me on Twitter.
