Happy 1-year anniversary everyone!
When we launched Hacker Bits a year ago, not in our wildest dreams did we expect such a warm response from our readers and contributors. So thank you to all of you who have made Hacker Bits possible!
In this issue’s most highly-upvoted article, Joel Spolsky, who needs no further introduction, tells us all about developers’ side projects and its common pitfalls.
Interested in web fonts? Then don’t miss Monica Dinculescu’s lazy approach to web fonts. And before you get swept up in the AI craze, don’t miss Professor Robin Hanson’s explanation on the limitations of AI and why like most fads, it’s doomed to bust.
And remember, Hacker Bits is here for you. We want it to be relevant to your goals, aspirations and resolutions.
So if you have any technology-related resolutions, let us know in this form.
We’re here to help!
