Imapenguin is looking for summer interns
For a geek, I’m not much of a gamer. I have a PS/3 that my son plays.
Today, I found DEFCON for the mac. I’m obsessed.
Would you like to play a game?
How about global thermonuclear war?
Wanna know what some other people are getting paid to do that work?
Check it out at LondonFreelance. It’s in pounds, but you can convert.
I was sitting with someone yesterday who knows I’m an avid reader and asked what my “favorite” books are. Well, there’s like 100, but here’s my must read shortlist:
- On Intelligence by Jeff Hawkins. This is hands down the most fascinating book I’ve read in years.
- Small is the new big by Seth Godin
- Founders at Work by Jessica Livingston
- The Life and Battles of Saigo Takamori by Mark Ravina
- My Job Went To India and All I got was this lousy book by Chad Fowler
- Velvet Elvis by Rob Bell
- Reagan: A life in letters Kiron K Skinner
- Enders Game by Orsen Scott Card. Just read it, you’ll see.
- Foundation by Isaac Asimov
- The Positronic Man by Issac Asimov
- Geek Mafia by Rick Dakan
- Snow Crash by Neil Stephenson
- Cryptonomicon by Neil Stephenson
- The Precipice by Ben Bova
There’s more, but that should keep you busy for a while 🙂

How much net work could a network work, if a network could net work?
I just finished Empire by Orsen Scott Card and thoroughly enjoyed it. Orsen is interviewed on it and the upcoming video game. He also talks about how this book is the first in a series. Wired did a good interview with him as well.
