I’m at the Macmania office in São Paulo, here for a 3-day visit. The #100 issue of the magazine is just coming out, and they’re throwing a party next Thursday. Even though it supposedly will be one of those badly-lit-with-loud-music affairs, it’ll be a chance to meet most of the gang in the flesh – and, of course, some of the cover models will be there… 😛

Speaking of covers, #100 has two covers for the price of one! See them here and here.

I’m also here to finish my chapters of a book about Mac OS X. I wrote most of those months ago, but now, with Jaguar out, everything must be revised.

However, before diving into that I found a must-read link to Richard Thieme’s article Real Hacking Rules!. Simply marvelous. Here are some quotes:

…hacking [is] practice for transplanetary life in the 21st century.

In essence, hacking is a way of thinking about complex systems.

Hacking is knowing how to discern or retrieve information beyond that which is designed for official consumption.
