They say you learn something new every day.

Elevator Conversation

They say you learn something new every day. This is my attempt to document that.

More Detail

If you do learn something new every day, how long do you remember it for? That’s a lot of things to store. This is my store of “learned things”. I like Steve Makofsky’s description of his blog as “backup of my brain”. That’s what I want this to become too.

Even More Detail

My other thought was about Steve Yegge’s comment that “I sucked, and I still do, although hopefully less every year.” Steve’s talking about coding, but I think it works for every aspect of your life.

After all, replace the word “code” with your chosen profession in this quote from Jeff Atwood and you’ve got what this site is all about:

You should be unhappy with code you wrote a year ago. If you aren’t, that means either A) you haven’t learned anything in a year, B) your code can’t be improved, or C) you never revisit old code.
