If you’ve ever written a program, you know “Hello World” is the equivalent of Coder Kindergarten. I like leaving the first blog post title as a little reminder of that beginning point, the first step that connects so many programming languages across the technology universe. Scott Adams said “Technology is no place for wimps,” but I think I can be a little sentimental without being wimpy. If you’re considering a comment keep in mind that I have your IP address.
Oh, now I remember why I was writing. The blog title. That’s another sentimental reference for me. A former co-worker and comedy buddy used to spell what we did “developmint,” and this is a little nod to his minty fresh humor. And it’s also a self-reference to the site and company name, as well as to my interests in photography and typography and Deepak Chopra.
