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!
