Joel Spolsky is combing the Web for the best software essays of 2004 (and 2003 too, it turns out), to compile them into a book. If you're at all interested in these fancy-schmancy computer things all the kids are talking about these days, go take a look at the nominees so far. If you have your own favourites, you can add them.

Many of the pieces I had seen before, but most I hadn't, such as Michelle Levesque and Greg Wilson's "Women in Software: Open Source, Cold Shoulder" (check Joel's site for login information), Steven Bone's "What Is Excellence in Software Development?", and David Stutz's "Natural History of Software Platforms."

It would be best if you don't have much else to do for the next little while.
