I was reading Martha Stewart Geeks Out for Wired‘s Annual How To Guide and spotted some interesting snippets:
First of all, they [geeks] can learn to prioritize, and they can learn how to make things beautiful. It’s about using your hands and your mind to make things work better. Whether you’re a programmer or a seamstress, it’s all about new techniques, simplifying old techniques, and consolidating steps. Making things go faster — but not worse. Better.
“You own it if you made it.”
While I think of it, here’s another quote – I don’t remember where I saw/heard this but I noted it down a while ago as a good maxim:
Do it right.
Do it right now.
