dphiffer created a plugin that exposes a JSON API for WordPress. This is quite cool and can be used to create a front-end that displays content served from a WordPress back-end. In his case he was using Ruby on Rails for the front-end but I can imagine other cases where this would be useful. I’ll definitely going to give this a try sometime.

Caine: Master, what is the best way to meet the loss of one we love?
Master: By knowing that when we truly love it is never lost. It is only after death that the depth of the loss is truly felt and our loved one becomes more a part of us than was possible in life.
Caine: Are we only able to feel this towards those whom we have known and loved for a long time?
Master: Sometimes a stranger known to us for moments can spark our souls to kinship for eternity.
Caine: How can strangers take on such much importance to our souls?
Master: Because our soul does not keep time. It merely records growth.
One thing we were taught at Kickstart, while covering finances and accounting, was that getting 1000€ today is not the same as getting 1000€ in a year from now. This seems to be a basic thing you learn while studying economics but we, mere mortals, have difficulty in understanding. So what is the reasoning behind this principle?
1) Inflation: the price of goods and services rises and therefore what we can buy with 1000€ today is not the same as what we’ll be able to buy in a year.*
2) More importantly: even if the inflation was 0%, having 1000€ today is not the same since we can invest the money today and make.. well, more money. Otherwise we’ll have to wait a whole year before investing.
This becomes more obvious when considering more money and a larger span of time. 10.000€ will not have today’s value in 10 years.
I couldn’t find the name behind this principle of Economics but if you know tell us.
