I don’t know what to make with the new technology Apple announced yesterday. On one hand, I don’t want to miss out and want to try everything. On the other, as I get older, I realize that it’s not the technology that is important, it’s the interactions in life. I realize now I would be happier getting drinks with friends instead of spending money unnecessarily on something that will only marginally improve my life.

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.
