No, really. Like, seriously.
I needed to learn C to make a device driver for work. I told them I knew C because I am good with email and word so they hired me. This book is too slow paced at the beginning but then starts talking about all kinds of crazy computer concepts that I never heard of and have nothing to do with email or the internet or device drivers like integers and main and void. I ended up getting fired after only 2 months. It was ok because this job paid more in 2 months than any other job I ever had paid in a year plus I got a month of severance, but it would have been nice to keep my job.
Scenius is like genius, only embedded in a scene rather than in genes.
I won’t lie, it was a humbling moment. Learning that you’re not the first to explore a concept, especially in such an impressive project like DigitGrid, has a way of knocking the wind out of your sails. I wrestled with halting development of our display. What was the point? It had been done. Except that it had not been done by us. That was an important distinction. We decided to push forward with the idea that we could bring something new to the table, that we could evolve the concept of a digit display from simple canvas to real-time mirror.

Some basic changes come as a result. Deep cupboards with doors, for instance, have lost their appeal, as it is too hard to know what is bured in the back. So IKEA invested heavily to equip the Metod with pot drawers and other pullout features.
