    Inspiration

    Still working on the project I mentioned about a month ago (of course I'm still working on it, it's only been a month ). When I get frustrated, I look at these things:

    IBM100 - FORTRAN
    The Story of Fortran - 1982 (wmv video)

    I made a pair of "Braille Gloves" which have 6 vibration motors in six finger tips and vibrate in the relevant patterns. I have used this to read stuff while out walking. Given there is a fairly well defined programmer-oriented Braille encoding I should imagine it would work in this situation. Diagrams could be a pain still.

    Note: I am not blind but have learnt Braille fairly easily so for me it works quite well

    Disclaimer: I haven't tried this while driving yet...

    Or even if he wasn't a programmer exactly, reading/watching stuff about the Woz, bad motherjammer that he was, always gives me an epic nerd rush.

    The best part of the FORTRAN video is around 9 minutes:
