Beauty is more important in computing than anywhere else in technology because software is so complicated. Beauty is the ultimate defense against complexity.

First post from Four Athens, first post from my new MacBook Pro, first post in a little while. Sorry about that.

I guess the big thing happening in my life right now is getting ready to throw a big ol' party and maybe walk out of there with a husband. There are a few letters that do have me thinking a bit on the seriousness and permanence of the matter. I am glad of that touch of perspective on top of the worries about table runners and hairdos.

Ooh, and we're going to the coast of Maine for a honeymoon! In mid-October, I'm thinking that will be pretty much the prettiest place in the world to be. Pictures to come in a month!
