Steve Jenson's blog

So I just remembered why I like handheld computers so much, I learned to program on one very early on. I haven't touched BASIC since. blech. And like most poor college kids out there, I used my Ti-85 as a PDA, writing basic apps like a calendar and addressbook in zshell.

Today while contemplating whether to buy Wolfram's _A New Kind of Science_, I asked Stacy whether you could put a price on 20 years of life and work, she instantly replied "2 dollars!". I hadn't laughed that hard in a long time. (She doesn't like Wolfram very much). I bought Lisp in Small Pieces instead.
