There should be a universal sign or gesture to tell someone that you haven’t had your coffee yet. I came into work today and someone who was already drinking coffee sat down to talk. I wanted to hold up a sign that said “Stop. Come back in 15 minutes after I get some coffee.”

Although I have many years of formal education, most of what I've learned has come from experimenting and trying to solve problems on my own. Once an idea for a project is set in my mind, it is all-consuming and one must learn everything possible about the subject on the way to the outcome. For learning is more than reading books and spoken word, it is hours of frustration, trial and error, and one sudden flash of insight when the world magically makes sense. It is during this moment when I am truely alive.
