I had the application for Geek Corps filled out shortly before I got hired by O’Reilly. Strangely enough I got stuck on the last question of the application, the Statement of Interest. It starts:
Geekcorps is looking for a cadre of volunteers who are committed to bridging the digital divide one business at a time. We are asking you to be flexible, mature and open to experiences that challenge your personal and professional existence.
It seemed like the application was preemptively trying to reassure me of my doubts. I had no doubts.
A statement of interest is your chance to tell us in your own words why in the world you want to do this.
I just had no good reason. Whatever reason I thought I had had little to do with Geek Corps itself. I didn’t know what I wanted to do but I knew I wanted change. (7 comments)

I am not a programmer though I write code. I do not play with programming languages in my spare time. I do not learn new languages for fun. But still I find it so interesting reading about people who do: Lisp is sin and The Perils of JavaSchools(3 comments)
So enclosing your code in a function and triggering it using setTimeout, e.g.:
Seems to get around this limitation that I LOST two hours of my life to. How much of your life has IE taken lately? Download Firefox. (3 comments)
I’m not sure about this whole Performancing thing, given that I first heard about them via an ad on Boingboing, given that their website looks a little too cheesy. But they’ve just released a new version of a tool for blogging with Firefox (giving the overfunded Flock a run for their money) which suggests they might be sticking around. (0 comments)
