Well, I was invited to participate in this 2010 Intel CPU IQ Blogger Challenge to answer some questions regarding Intel. Although you’ll probably not be able to get any prizes, but it’ll be fun to see how much you know about Intel. Try the questions for fun, and post your answers in the comments.
Who knows, I might just give out a small prize if someone answers all the questions correctly.
P.S. I’ve already submitted my answers.

Aza Raskin, creative lead at Firefox, shares some tips and tricks about rapid prototyping at the Mozilla Drumbeat festival. It’s a very interesting presentation where Aza Raskin demonstrates of live rapid prototyping in front of everyone.
For those who do not want to sit through the 30-minutes romp and his rapid prototyping, here are the principals of prototyping that he explains fully in talk:
- Your first try will be wrong. Budget and design for it.
- Aim to finish a usable artifact in a day. This helps you focus and scope.
- You are making a touchable sketch. Do not fill in all the lines.
- You are iterating your solution as well as your understanding of the problem.
- Treat your code as throw-away, but be ready to refactor.
- Borrow liberally
- Tell a story with your prototype. It isn’t just a set of features.
Here are the slides:
