I've been reading Steve McConnells "Rapid Development" this last week. I really love his way of writing. Very sure of himself, and always backed up by relevant citations to empirical studies to show for it. I'm sure the book has given me a keener eye for project process dynamics, and I can hardly wait to try to put it's advise into use at work somehow and over time.
I was glad to see in the past week, that the demo scene yet again seems to receive some deserved attention in the medias. Wired had an article about assembly01. I have always admired the dedication, commitment, patience and hard work it must take to compete in demo competitions. Of course there are many of the demos that are not-so-cool, but every once in a while a classic pops up, that demonstrates why demo-making is a real art form. Purple Motion rules :-)
