For the past week, I’ve spent my spare time charting commercial space launches from different countries around the world between 1990 and 2012. You can view the data by rocket or by year:

Today the YQL team released a unified YQL console. They added ways you can customize the Console, which hopefully will make your life a little easier. Now it will remember the state you left it in (sidebars and XML/JSON output preference). Also the layout has changed so tables are now on the…
After nearly a year of hard work, we finally launched.

I started off this blog last year with mostly reblogs of other people’s content to make my own blog looked like it had content. I know, it was incredibly deceptive of me.
But anyways, I eventually got rid of all the reblogs and replaced it with things I found interesting like a Youtube video or an interface design. Not much better, but at least I’m doing a bit more work. Some of that stuff you’ll still see here, but ultimately I’m trying to move away from all that.
There are two things we do as people, especially on the Internet: producing or consuming content. I want to be less of a content consumer this year and more of a content producer.

I noticed that ever since Marissa started working here at Yahoo, she always takes her time to thank people. There was a recent email thread where people tried to thank her for a successful event, but she quickly put the spotlight on someone else.
I don’t think many CEOs do this. And it’s probably not the first thing that comes to mind when you’re under pressure to prove yourself for the first time.

A computer used to be a place.
It was a giant mainframe that, in some cases, took up floors in a building. What was once something you had to visit, eventually moved onto your desk, then your lap, is currently in your pocket, and is now going onto your face.
It’s amazing how fast computers are not just getting smaller, but becoming physically closer to our bodies. It’s only a matter of time before they’re a part of us.

During this past year, I’ve seen people from different tech companies talking about user experience and what it means to them. So for fun, I decided to rebrand them with their definition of user experience.

I’m changing my domain (again) to sudoco.de. I feel pretty confident that this will be my final domain change.
The name means a lot to me personally because it’s the name I’ve gone by in most of the hackathons and projects I’ve been in. It’s based on the word “pseudocode”, with “pseudo-” being replaced by the sudo command.
Also, I think I’ve finalized the design of this site. It looks really crisp, minimalist, and modern which is exactly what I was going for.

Completely unexpected and awesome announcement from Yahoo! today. Marissa Mayer was a former exec at Google who was apparently behind the layout of the Google homepage, Gmail, Google News, and Google Images. She holds a BS in symbolic systems and an MS in computer science.
This is so awesome. I am super excited to see what she has planned out.
