The Cult of Done Manifesto

From http://www.brepettis.com/blog/2009/3/3/the-cult-of-done-manifesto.html


The Cult of Done Manifesto

  1. There are three states of being. Not knowing, action and completion.
  2. Accept that everything is a draft. It helps to get it done.
  3. There is no editing stage.
  4. Pretending you know what you're doing is almost the same as knowing what you are doing, so just accept that you know what you're doing even if you don't and do it.
  5. Banish procrastination. If you wait more than a week to get an idea done, abandon it.
  6. The point of being done is not to finish but to get other things done.
  7. Once you're done you can throw it away.
  8. Laugh at perfection. It's boring and keeps you from being done.
  9. People without dirty hands are wrong. Doing something makes you right.
  10. Failure counts as done. So do mistakes.
  11. Destruction is a variant of done.
  12. If you have an idea and publish it on the internet, that counts as a ghost of done.
  13. Done is the engine of more.

What's your best Mac&Cheese recipe?

We've all seen it, a restaraunt serving up what they CLAIM to be mac&cheese but is actually some kind of bland alfredo mess. Something they CLAIM to be a tasty cheesy sauce but is instead a pale pasty beshamel, more flour than creme, who's only connection to cheese is that it might have sat next to some as it coagulated in the fridge.

Well I say NO to this injustice. Here's the challenge I place before you and myself: Help me right this wrong. Share your best Mac&Cheese recipe with he world. Make it tasty, cheesy, creamy, ooey and gooey.

Thank you.

XL_Star demo board Road Test

Please rate and comment!

Element14 and Freescale Semiconductor bring you an exciting new microcontroller board called the XL_Star and I managed to get a review copy to show to you. This board has a lot of potential for the DIY synth community when it comes to motion based control interfaces because of the pre-configured accelerometer right on board.
