No, there is no reason to justify 2-3 hours in the car on commuting. I “m continuing finding a way to make this time productive by listening to podcasts, but here “s my third contribution to the movement “Commuters Unite! rdquo;
For this third carcast (listen to the MP3 here: yakov_carcast3_summer_read.mp3) I picked up the following topics:
1. Is there excitement in software development
2. Summer reading
a)Tuesdays with Morrie
b) Mythical man-month
c) Secret and Lies
d) Object-Oriented Analysis and Design With Applications, second edition
e) Eric Sink ndash; free eBook Business of Software

4. UPS IT disappoints.
5. Leonard Cohen. If you haven not heard his music yet I envy you, cause I already did. These are the video clips with some of his great songs:
a) Dance me to the end of love
b) I “m your man
If you are over 30 and do not like this music, there is something wrong with you. Period.
