comment Standards for reading code out loud?
I was mainly wondering if anybody (like, IBM in the 1970s) actually produced a document for how to pronounce code out loud. There are several reasons why one might (screen reading, lectures, code review, phone conversations), but I'm getting the sense that it's always been handled on an ad hoc basis. Which is not really that surprising.

comment What's it like to program without eyesight?
Did someone seriously vote this as "too localized"? Do people think the blind don't use the Internet or write programs?

comment What is meant by “Now you have two problems”?
Yes! People who learning regular expressions without that part of CS background don't always understand that there are just some things that a regex mathematically cannot do.

comment What is the iOS equivalent of Michael Hartl's Rails 3 Tutorial?
I know iOS, but I don't know Michael Hartl's tutorial. Maybe if you explained what you like about it or how it's organized you might get more useful responses here.

comment What kind of software should we write? What technology should we deliver?
My point is that a lot of basic research that didn't seem very useful at the time (even by the researchers) has been directly responsible for some immensely useful things, and that there's no way to predict in advance what will lead to what. This fact renders the question "Should we focus on useful things?" meaningless.

Older models of computation? I'm talking about the guys who were waving magnets over loops of wire and taking notes.

comment What are the most over-saturated iPhone App category/markets?
There are no guarantees, but I don't think a small market will keep an app out of the store. They are more likely to be concerned with whether the app is useful.

I think you can search via Apple's website, but I'm not sure. You can definitely see everything if you install iTunes and search the store.
