Currently, I'm taking a Software Engineering course at my university, and it's proving that so far, much of the stuff I have learned on my own, such as using bug-tracking forums, CVS, and reading books such as XP have been the right choice so far. I think my experiences of holding several projects of my own on SourceForge are going to prove invaluable.
Over the past day I've been reading up on RSS and RDF, two fascinating technologies. O'Reilly has really been pushing this technology, for various reasons, and has many good articles and links.
Following reading all of this, I've downloaded XML::Parser to toy with it and see if I can start creating a small RSS aggregator such as Meerkat. My first RSS file will allow me to test all sorts of fun stuff, and see if I can even get my local ACM chapter to centralize our SIGS news.
Studying for finals, reading Technocrat.net's editorial on music spread and am being thorougly saddened. In my opinion, the people requiring others to keep secrets is one of the biggest problems society relies on. I believe this dilemna is at the heart of the debate. Society needs to learn to cope with information spread. I feel so strongly and emotional about this it brings me to tears. I hope my writings help some of us feel the same way.
