LUNCH: Humble Pie

George and I met for the first time at Humble Pie, a Pizza/Pasta/Salad restaurant & bar near Desert Ridge.  It was really tasty, but even the lunch special ended up costing me $15 with tip.

For the first time in a while, I finally brought an agenda to the lunch (George always has one).

We talked quite a bit about web application development, mostly because he's done a bunch of it and I am just now starting my first web app at work.

No time for a lot of elaboration this time, so I'll just list a summary of some of the agenda items I shared with George:

1. A video of someone building a blog website from scratch in Ruby on Rails in 15 minutes.

2. The best Five Books, a site with a daily post of five books that will make you an expert in a particular subject.

3.The Brooklyn Space Program, where a father and his kids launch a weather balloon to the edge of space with an HD video camera on board.

4. Food for the Apocalypse: Costco now offers a special item for just $799.00: A one-year supply of dehydrated and freeze-dried food for one person.  Stock up now!

5. It seems Ratheon has developed an exoskeleton for use by the military that bears at least some resemblance to Iron Man's suit: The  XOS 2.
