These prints are a one/two punch square in my art/design and Macintosh obsessions at the same time—so insanely cool I can't stand it. Susan Kare, the designer who created these original Macintosh icons, has released an edition of art prints featuring the famous icons.

Alas, we're many years past that, and I need to be more conservative with my funds. That 30"x40" spray can one is killing it though (hint hint). [Thanks to Tim Shey for the heads up]

What do Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google all have in common? Somewhere in their framework, they all use MySQL, that most versatile (and free!) of database management systems. And they’re not alone. If your company or the one you’d like to work for wrangles data (and who doesn’t?), they’re going to need someone with a […]
