I'm not sure if it is incredible genius or what, but it seems like my best ideas are those that are the best solutions in others minds without personally knowing much of the details. It's like yeah, that's a good idea, and then I find ... well that's how they are doing it. It's a mixed bag. It is definitely exciting have something to identify with, but at the same time I am stressed out by the competition. It's like I want to glory of developing it.

June 23rd 2011

I had a really good day today. I learned a lot, and I am excited about the future.

It takes a little while to make all possible mistakes before anticipation.

The 20th of June

Today I went to get my car fixed at Sears. The wrecker came and jumped my car and then I took it to Sears to get a new battery. Now it works great!
I'm trying to get my Master's Thesis done. It gets kind of lonely and stressful sometimes, so it is soothing to take a break and write.
A Thunderstorm is coming though. I think that it still may be raining. However, it is not like it was before. I am still listening to Lou Tice. He has really been helping me raise my aspirations. I dream about applying myself and having my dreams succeed and making a billion dollars. I know that this is not for everyone, but it seems like an opportunity to help people out. I guess people would put me on magazine covers and stalk me if I achieve it, but it would be worth it I think. If something spectacular happens as a result of me achieving this than that would be good. It will be funny to read this in a year, or ten years, to see where I am.

Lou Tice from "Investment in Excellence -- Audio Assimilation Program"

Lou Tice, on Track 31 (This is Me) suggests that
"The prison really is in your own mind", and that
"...all you had to do is take the key out and let yourself out".
What freedom!

Brent's Music

Today I worked on my music. It sort of sounds like the circus.
I just need some lyrics now.

Semantic Web

I also find this link by Tim Burners-Lee very interesting.

So who is the creator of Netscape?

Today I was wondering who the creator of Netscape was. I wondered, what makes these sort[s] of people successful? Performing a Google search helped me, and I found it was Marc Andreessen. Actually he was the co-founder. From this I discovered that the inventor of the World Wide Web was Tim Berners-Lee, and that the first web-site was built on the August 6th, 1991 (making this event 20 years ago in a few weeks). I soon found myself reading a Scientific American Article titled, "Long Live the Web, a Call for Open Standards and Neutrality". It was a very interesting article. It was made even better by the fact that I learned more about URIs, more about the social web, and the Resource Description Framework.

Thoughts on what Makes a Good Programmer

Programmers, at least the ones that are very good, posses skills that allow them to be inner-focused. They are on a mission. They constantly are challenging themselves to be creative, to continually improve by not avoiding the hard stuff, and to view hurdles as opportunities. The teenage computer geek, who knows more than everybody else, is actually very sophisticated. Likely more than magical genius lies beneath their brow.

Adults appear to face similar challenges to being good. The ones who are not successful appear to be constantly making statements of self-doubt. They are not risk-takers. It is a sad thing to realize that they have likely been the same way their whole lives, imprisoned within themselves.
