Here are six of the best posts from February 2008. Four are on the list because they were popular, and two just because I liked them.
- How to avoid being outsourced or open sourced summarizes advice from three authors regarding what skills are highly valued and difficult to outsource.
- Free bitmap to vector software was an announcement for VectorMagic, software for turning bitmap images into vector images so they can be re-sized without becoming jagged. This software does a great job at solving a common problem, but a year later I still don’t think too many people know about it.
- Everything begins with p was a surprisingly popular little rant about statistical notation.
- Honeybee genealogy shows how Fibonacci numbers come up when examining a honeybee’s ancestry.
- Enterprising software summarizes some comments from Cyndi Mitchell complaining that “enterprise” software is nothing like connotation of “enterprise” elsewhere.
