  • “There is no doubt in my mind that Chocolate Chip Cookies are the ultimate classic baked good and comfort food.  There is just nothing that compares to a warm gooey cookie right out of the oven.  And a few years ago I set out on a mission to develop the most perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe ever.  But this led to the question: What is my idea of the perfect chocolate chip cookie?  Well, I am all about contrasts.  So in my mind it needs lots of contrasts of textures and flavors.  And I created that for myself.  A thick, chewy on the inside crunchy on the outside cookie that has hints of caramel and salt with dark chocolate chips and toasted pecans. That was the start of my cookie busines”

  • “I like to enjoy vegetables and their natural subtle flavors. I’m not all for frying or smothering with thick, rich sauces… but sometimes, I want something a little more. This vegetable tian lands half way between both worlds. The vegetables are sliced thin, seasoned only with a little salt, pepper, and thyme and then topped with just a small amount of flavorful cheese. Roasting the vegetables magnifies their flavor and gives them just a hint of sweetness. It’s veggie-tastic.

  • “In the physical world, science is largely about models, measurement, predictions, and validation. Our ability to predict likely outcomes based on models is fundamental to the most central notions of the scientific method. The term “computer science” raises expectations, at least to my mind, of an ability to define models and to make predictions about the behavior of computers and computing systems. I think we have a fairly good capability to measure and predict the physical performance of our computing devices. We can measure clock speeds, latencies, memory sizes, and computational capacity against standard computing tasks. In my view, however, we are much less able to make models and predictions about the behavior and performance of the artifact we label “software.” An almost flippant analogy is the difference between measuring, modeling, and predicting neural brain functions and trying to do the same for “thought.””

  • “My name is Jamie Wong and I like to build things. Coding personal projects since the 7th grade has given me a great appreciation for perpetual self-learning through doing. I’m a huge advocate of open source, test driven development (untested code is broken code) and code review (unreviewed code is bad code). I have a fascination with puzzles and problem solving that both led me to success in national and international competition and fostered my passion in programming. When I’m not pushing the latest commits to my projects on github, I can be found answering questions on Stack Overflow, writing up posts for my blog, editing my vim config, or playing badminton.”

  • Back in the late 1970s, Dieter Rams was becoming increasingly concerned by the state of the world around him – “an impenetrable confusion of forms, colours and noises.” Aware that he was a significant contributor to that world, he asked himself an important question: is my design good design?
    As good design cannot be measured in a finite way he set about expressing the ten most important principles for what he considered was good design. (Sometimes they are referred as the ‘Ten commandments’.)

    Here they are.

  • Through fluid grids and media query adjustments, responsive design enables Web page layouts to adapt to a variety of screen sizes. As more designers embrace this technique, we’re not only seeing a lot of innovation but the emergence of clear patterns as well. I cataloged what seem to be the most popular of these patterns for adaptable multi-device layouts.
