It’s a trap!
The beginnings and history of mind mapping, and Tony Buzan in particular.
Splitting your efforts won’t lead to faster splitting of the atom.
DDD is an interesting concept, and knowing how companies implement it is always good. This lacks a bit of more material though.
An interesting way of visualizing a year’s worth of technical effort, by Kent Beck.
I enjoy a lot tales of the dark ages of gaming. If you haven’t, read
The Making of Prince of Persia (you may enjoy the “prequel”, The Making of Karateka) or Masters of Doom).

I had a lot of fun with this one. Super-readable and easy to follow.
These weekly posts are also available as a newsletter. These days (since RSS went into limbo) most of my regular information comes from several newsletters I’m subscribed to, instead of me going directly to a blog. If this is also your case, subscribe by clicking
