…it’s a new year and time to exercise my blogging muscles. I’ve been hunkered away writing design columns for IEEE Software (as well as enjoying a holiday break). Now that two columns are in the bag, I am turning some attention here. In addition to appearing in print, I will also post my columns on my website’s resource page. Looking for Powerful Abstractions appears in the Jan/Feb 2006 issue. If you have any design ideas you’d like to kick around or think are worthy of a 1500 word column, please drop me a line.
