True creativity

An excellent article on the creative process, and how much of it really needs to come from one person. It's interesting to think that so many years of brainstorming may not have been the most effective way to approach things. I do think brainstorming has its benefits, but it usually isn't for that initial creative, really 'out of the box' idea, I think.

Also, for the absolutely nerdiest of the nerdy (seriously, you have to be a mega-nerd engineer, I think) - there's a hilarious tutorial on Mercurial and an equally funny comparison of Git vs Mercurial, since distributed version control systems are all the rage now. Seriously, don't click on those links unless you need a saturation of programmer nerdiness.
