While reading Machine Beauty I came up with a wonderful idea (as seems to happen often with Gelernter books…) for a cool information-managing Cocoa app. I thought about the idea for a while and decided it was cool and exciting enough for me to start learning Cocoa. So I went downstairs and picked up that old classic, K&R, and started reading. I’ve reserved Aaron Hillegass’s Cocoa Programming Book and plan to go thru that next. Whee!
