(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)

So here's an idea that just popped in my head. I was trolling the CocoaDevBulletinBoard just now, and someone made the suggestion to start a blog "where we all post about random good and bad things related to Cocoa.. bugs we fix, code we optimize, etc.".

I like the spirit of the idea, but I imagine the implementation would probably suck. So I thought for a split second, and hey- I've got a solution for that. Everybody just post on their own blogs things related to such topics, and make sure to tag the post with "cocoadev" or "cocoadevblog" on, just like we do with applebugfriday. I think that would be the killerest. Maybe "cocoadevblogpost" might be better... any other suggestions?

As more and more people are putting their thoughts up on the web, I keep on finding all these great posts on cocoa development, from sites I've never come across before. I of course subscribe to their blog, but I don't have time to go back the person's archives to find what other wonderful nuggets of information they might have already shared. Maybe this is a good solution to that?

Or maybe my brain is still suffering from spending seven hours of bar hopping last night with Mike and Brent through Belltown. (Mike was here for a conference, and Brent spent some good years living in Belltown so we had to go visit what seemed like all his favorite places. Mac programmers + beer is always fun!)
