bit 101 meets bill gates

Keith Peters, aka bit-101, has contributed enormously to the development of friendly experimental code in Flash over the years. I've tech edited a book or two of his, but he is in a stratosphere/universe way beyond me with code.

I stumbled onto his blog tonight, where he describes a meeting just this week with Bill Gates, with lots of illuminating future talk. I loved reading this.

Today I picked up ActionScript 3.0 for the third time. I thought I could convince myself to read a chapter a day, or maybe a week. I found it still looked so foreign and unpleasant that I was better off putting it in the closet and using my old code systems. Maybe Microsoft's Silverlight, described a bit in the interviews, will be easier to code.

The different kinds of software that do basically the same thing, or that could do the same thing, drive me nuts. I can't take it. I'm glad it's Friday. I'm opening a can of champagne.
