I'm glad to be a part of it and excited for what's in store for the future of something great. Happy New Year, everyone!

As someone who's always had health insurance, I have absolutely no idea how receiving healthcare works for someone who isn't insured. Do you mind explaining what you did during those 6 years whenever you got sick or needed treatment?

EDIT: Also, did not having insurance have an effect on how you lived your life in terms of taking risks and having fun?

hahah, I haven't been to Captain Kidd's in YEARS!

Hahah, I mocked up a site last year in PowerPoint, so, I guess that's a start. As for HTML, I picked some up while I was writing for a blog a while back, but my knowledge is limited to formatting words and images.

Also, I checked out your site. You do pretty good work. If I ever need a logo, I know who to call!

Thanks, I'll check the book out. My first thought after submitting my last reply was that money is both the reason why we have the goods and services that we currently do and why a post-scarcity world cannot exist. In such a world, what incentive do people have to produce or give up their ability to profit from it in the first place?

Wow! Thanks for the write up. That's definitely a lot to take in. I think I'm going to jump in this weekend with Learn Python The Hard Way and see where that goes. What's your opinion on Codecademy?

You might want to create a new post in #learnprogramming for this since I don't think anyone who would know the answer will see it here.

EDIT: Unless BT or baltoli want to just reply to you here.

Alright, cool, I'll go ahead and do that, then. Thanks!

More like Person A goes on the site and answers questions, and then Person B goes on the site and does the same. Their answers get put in a database and whenever two people's answers are the same, they're both notified. Something like that. I'll check out Codecademy and start one of their Ruby or Python courses. Thanks!

I guess this could also be an app instead of a site. Do you still recommend going the Ruby/Python route if I wanted to create an app?
