DARNA LIVES, a fan fiction made by Gerry Alanguilan and Arnold Arre. This is very nice! Have you ever wondered what happened to our superheroes after vanquishing the ultimate antagonists of their stories? Darna Lives give us an idea to the question “what happened next?” to one of our own comic superheroes.
Sam gave this link to me and I find the story and art really wonderful. Check the comic chronicle here. Disclaimer: Image from Darna Lives blog page. Take time to read this, especially if you’re a Filipino and you know the story of Darna. Support our local artists!
A programmer should be able to find a bug, market an application, refactor a spike, lead a team, architect an application, hack a kernel, schedule a project, build a database, route a network, give a reference, implement UserStories, analyze UserStories, work in a team, work alone, use patterns, innovate, write documentation, have a RealLife, create a cool website, email efficiently, resign gracefully, AdmitIgnorance, and keep on learning. Specialization is for recruiters.

This week two noteworthy events involving the Philippines made headlines: the botched rescue of Chinese tourists taken hostage by a disgruntled former policeman, and a botched response to a question by Miss Philippines in the finals for the Miss Universe contest. You might ask, what do these two things have in common? Separately, not much, but taken together, they represent both the peril and promise of the Philippines today.
…If the Philippines wants to get its act together and live up to its potential, it needs to demand more of itself. It can achieve this by stopping making excuses for its failures and ending its acceptance of the lowest common denominator. President Aquino promised to put an end to nepotism and corruption in government. The people should make sure he does this. When the police screw up a hostage rescue, the people responsible should be fired. And when a beauty queen blows an attempt to become the glory of the Philippine people, it should be recognized as such.
