Google Wave

Just watched the Google Wave demo, via @tylerwhitaker. Board game playing via email--I've thought of this before but seeing it implemented with Wave is so much cooler!

Appropriate levels of abstraction

I've learned over the years, through the many facets of my job, to don a different hat depending to whether I'm talking to a programmer, a business person, or an end user.

Which is why it always freaks me out when I see my fellow developers showing my CEO how to run regasm to get a particular new product feature to work. Good God!

I guess in some sense it's good, because now when something is not working quite right, my CEO would ask "Do I need to rerun regasm?"
