Back in 2003, when the web was young (and so was I), Joel Spolsky, co-creator of StackOverflow declared this: “So I have an announcement to make: if you are a programmer working in 2003 and you don’t know the basics of characters, character sets, encodings, and Unicode, and I catch you, I’m going to punish […]
Built with ChatGPT!
Let’s build an app to help me keep track of certain bits of technology news. The name of the app will be CWACON: Cloudy With a Chance of News.

I mentioned PSI before. And I’m pretty sure I will again. Microsoft’s Platform for Situated Intelligence has a lot of potential. I was reminded about it today with this tweet: From the PSI lab, they released a great demo that I’ve spent some time playing with. With PSI, you can access all the streams of […]
