Become a Beta Reader!

Beta Reader! As part of a way to help spread the word, and to have my fans help me, I've created a "Beta Reader Program." Basically as a Beta Reader, you'll get 2 things:

  1. An unedited manuscript of my latest book, which I hope you can provide some feedback, and
  2. A mention in the acknowledgement section of the book you helped edit.


That's all I have right now. I'm sure I'll add more as more books come out.

This is why you shouldn't interrupt a Programmer

I recently subscribed to the Startup Digest mailing list, which has been full of very helpful articles and references. Today, though, I saw something that I just had to share.

I previously wrote about my Thought Process and all of the steps that go into planning something mentally as far as all of the steps/obstacles/designs/concepts/etc that go into planning a site/program/application. However, I don't think that got the point across that I was trying to make.

Instead, this comic does a perfect job of making my point:


In summary: when a programmer, like myself, is deep in thought trying to figure something out, don't bother us with a tech support question, personal issues, clarification requests, etc. When we get into the thought process "zone", getting out is easy, but getting back in is hard (insert joke here).

Here's a reference from The Big Bang Theory to help illustrate my point (ignore the Raccoon virus stuff):
