It’s not all web and software.
They move back in with their parents. They delay beginning careers. Why are so many young people taking so long to grow up?
To abstain from the enjoyment which is in our power, or to seek distant rather than immediate results, are among the most painful exertions of the human will.

Imported books are now exempt from customs duties. Hurray! :)
Department of Finance Department Order No. 57-2011.
Imported books are exempt from customs duties. They are exempt from VAT. So long as you are bringing them in for personal use, which is defined by law as six copies or less. The only exception are books published for, or by, a commercial enterprise for advertising purposes.

Brown and teal are the most down-to-earth colors I always gravitate to (pun is downright intended).
To my mind, career entrepreneurship looks like someone living well below their means and re-investing that financial freedom in planting the seeds for future opportunities through developing relationships, projects, and themselves.

Today I cracked open my second-hand copy of Freakonomics I bought from Samtoy Books a week ago. Two thoughts:
- It has ideas I would not agree with so easily. I just realized that over the past year I’ve been exposing myself to situations that do not align with my beliefs: religious, political, philosophical, economic, scientific, and otherwise. This is good. Not that I will be changing my basic principles on a whim, but I now see them in a new light. I read somewhere that a brilliant scientist always looks for ways to attack his own ideas, at least to prove their robustness, and at best to learn even more.
- I think I’ve been reading too much popular science. I’ve barely scratched the surface. Time to get to the real thing!
As an EE, I take a tiny capacitor and store one bit inside it. If it’s charged, then it’s 1. If not, then it’s 0. I then take millions of these capacitors to store millions of bits worth of information.
The brain is made up of trillions of neurons. Surely neurons aren’t binary :)
Before we hopped on the bus, we looked around in the nearby stores for sunblock to use at the beaches in Pagudpud. We didn’t find any. Well, it turns out we were in for a surprise up north after all.
Along the way we’d pass the towns of Bacarra, Pasuquin, Burgos, and Bangui. The bus was already full when we boarded, so I got to sit just behind the driver. Jackie took the seat behind me.
