Coding Without Seeing the Screen 

I keep an eye on the Microsoft Channel 9 website for cool videos. If you're not a developer, then there is probably little reason for you to track their site. But if you are, they have all sorts of cool videos from inside the Redmond campus. They show clips of the coolest upcoming software on some cool hardware. Oh yeah, and it's all very informal and light... so it doesn't seem like you're watching a stupid hyped P.R. video.

Anyway, one of the latest videos they put up is about an intern at Microsoft named Kenneth Spector, and shows some of the unique hardware and software he uses every day. So what's so special about this guy? Well, he writes code every day, but he's been blind since he was 3 years old. Whether you're a developer or not, I think this video is definitely one to watch. I'm going to stop bitching about my uncomfortable chair now.
