I'm not sure what normal people do on the weekend. [May. 4th, 2008|11:19 pm]

I like to do problems from SICP.

I'm pretty weird, I think. I don't actually care about Making Cool Things. I only care about understanding this book. Other people, they do projects. Me, I just do homework.

Man. This book. We're on chapter 1, exercise 16. There are 46 exercises in chapter 1. If we keep it up, we might get to the end of chapter 1 by the end of the year. How many years do you think it will take to make it to the end of the whole book? If we get that far?

Thanks. I think it was Alex's idea, originally. I'm really glad -- I've already gotten way, way more out of it than if I'd just been reading.

I think it's more fun to do it with a partner, even if that makes us less badass than the guy who did it by himself. You learn a lot from bouncing ideas off someone else.
