When thinking about what to call this blog, I remembered a quote from an old AMV, Boogiepop Phantom - Butterfly by MindWarp. I was going to write here whatever random thoughts I happen to have, so I though "Random Thoughts" to be a good name for a blog about random thoughts. It would be nice for them to be as psychedelic as that AMV, but I'm afraid it won't happen. ;)
Butterflies are random thoughts people have
They live, They die, They are pointless.

First I will probably be writing about my current hobby project, Dimdwarf Application Server, which will be a scalable high-availability application server and a distributed object database, optimized for low latency (for example MMO games). Then I might write things about user interface design. I design UIs using the GUIDe+GDD method and right now I'm writing my masters thesis about the same topic. I may also write things about TDD (next autumn I'll be lecturing a course about TDD in the University of Helsinki) as well as my thoughts on what Software Craftsmanship is about (on SC's mailing list there has not yet been a clear consensus on what makes craftsmen different from other developers).
