I have made the formal household declaration that all screen time will be matched, hour-for-hour with project time. Yesterday we cleaned the 1st floor, mopped and everything. Today we went grocery shopping, made lunch, and then started on homework time.
To say that I am unpopular here, would be an understatement.

Best part of CodepaLOUsa so far… sitting next to Douglas Crockford at dinner tonight. Occasionally I’m the lucky one. (Hope I didn’t bore him too much)
Anyway – having a fun time at CodepaLOUsa and hope all other attendees are too.

Creativity is wonderful, amazing, useful, freeing, and fun… but it’s not rare. Being creative is a skill, available to everyone. It doesn’t have to be “Art” (note the capital A) nor innovation. It doesn’t have to be shared.
Last night I started playing with `meteor –release 0.9.2-rc1` which you can read about and play with too; check it out here:
The local development and hot-code-push is a great improvement over any other solution I’ve been using. Builds were painless (mostly).
Most of my stumbling points were due to 9x, not the new Cordova stuff.
A few interesting details…
Cordova gets built here:
