A bunch of people asked me what I meant when I referred to Rick Chapman’s upcoming book on stupidity in the software industry. The book has not been published yet; I just read his manuscript so that I can write the foreword (being something of a stupidity maven, myself). As soon as it comes out you can be sure I’ll let you know, since it’s a great book.

I keep forgetting to link to TopCoder.com. What a cool idea, online programming competitions!

About the author.

In 2000 I co-founded Fog Creek Software, where we created lots of cool things like the FogBugz bug tracker, Trello, and Glitch. I also worked with Jeff Atwood to create Stack Overflow and served as CEO of Stack Overflow from 2010-2019. Today I serve as the chairman of the board for Stack Overflow, Glitch, and HASH.
