Scrum in Under 10 Minutes (Video)

I came across a great Scrum video today on YouTube. It teaches Scrum in under 10 minutes. I have to say its the best overview I've seen so far regarding Scrum.

It's a Rare Thing

It's a rare thing when two of my favorite creators of media come together to collaborate. It's even rarer that I had no idea this happened 8 years ago. So what am I talking about? I'm talking about Ween and Trey Parker and Matt Stone (The creators of South Park) collaborating to produce a music video. I had suspected that they were friends for a while, but didn't know that they were friends enough to collaborate. This is awesome.

So, here it is in its entirety.

Open Source Contribution

So, I recently contributed to an open source project. The project is called org.microformats.hCard. It's a Java hCard parser that I was using in my masters project. I needed the parser to also have support for XFN so that I could parse and store hCard + XFN friends lists, so I added it. Thanks to Reinier Zwitserloot (the creator of this project) for working with me to get these modifications into the baseline.

I now have no excuse to not work on my masters project. Oh wait, I am taking two graduate level programming courses this semester along with full time work. Nevermind.
