A side project by a UX team member launched a couple weeks ago called  It’s by far the easiest way to find a mobile food vendor near you, which can come in especially handy for those folks who are in different parts of the city from time to time…  or all the time.  I just love that truck.

With an esteemed colleague constantly lauding GitHub and the release of GitHub Subversion support, I did a little research and found this interesting article and presentation by Linus Torvalds.  Linus starts out ragging on CVS (tarballs are better) and Subversion and it just gets better from there:  “By definition anyone who disagrees [with Linus] is stupid and ugly” got a good laugh from the crowd.  I can only imagine the curses he’s reserved for Visual SourceSafe.

I was somewhat skeptical of Apple being worth more than Microsoft, but after seeing these charts (floating on the Lab49 conversationsphere), I’m on the fence.  Apple is definitely on a growth tear while MS has a “disturbing slowdown”.  Growth can’t continue forever, but it seems a case can be made that Apple’s income can exceed Microsoft’s in a few years.  They’re probably both overvalued IMHO.
