This is long overdue, so I better get it going. ;)

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who sent me books from my amazon whishlist. :)

I’ve enjoyed sharpening my vision and “management” foo while reading “Dreaming in Code”. It’s really an interesting and also useful book, because it reminds my about the reasons why I pursue the Open Movie Editor project the way I do. In a freewheeling, yet effective style and workflow.

As you can see by the redesign of the Open Movie Editor Homepage, I’ve put the copy of “The Principles of Beautiful Web Design”, to good use. Of course I recognize that beauty is surely a matter of personal preference, and I for one prefer a slightly “quirky” look, with smooth and not to flashy colors, and a little rounded border and drop shadow here and there.

Other than that I am currently working through “Why Programs Fail, A Guide to Systematic Debugging”, which has already sparked some fancy ideas, here.

So thanks, everyone, I hope I did not leave anyone out. :D

and have fun,

PS.: I’m not going to depart Planet Earth to make way for a hyperspatial express route.
PPS.: Thanks again for “The Business of Software” too, ;)
