This blog will describe some of the learning experiences that I have with .NET, some personal projects that I'm working on, and whatever other topics tickle my fancy.

I'm in the middle of reading "Quicksilver" by Neal Stephenson. It's a good book, but very long and a little slow for my liking. So, I had to take a break half way through it and read another one of his books -- "In the Beginning... Was the Command Line".
Command Line is a great book. It's about technical subject matter (the rise of the GUI and how it still relates to the command line interface), but he does it in a light tone that's approachable by the non-tech savvy too. Stephenson goes into the battles between Mac and Windows and newer OSes like Linux and BeOS. It's a little dated because it was written in 1999 but still very entertaining.
Now, if there were any writer that I expected to have a blog, it would be Stephenson, but it doesn't look like he has one. The other one was William Gibson, but he hasn't blogged in a while, so that he could write his next book. I miss reading your posts though...
