ADHOC 2005 Speakers: Hubbard, Doctorow, Ihnatko -- I'm once again planning to speak at ADHOC 2005 (previously known as MacHack), but my interest in attending just went up even more upon learning that the ADHOC committee has lined up some great people to speak at the three midnight sessions, including Jordan Hubbard, Apple's manager of the Darwin core of Mac OS X, and Cory Doctorow, science fiction author, blogger, and European Affairs Coordinator for the EFF. The final midnight session is the ADHOC Showcase programming competition, which will be hosted by the ever-amusing and effervescent Andy Ihnatko. If you're interested in learning more about programming from some of the best developers in the business and hearing from some fascinating speakers, the early registration deadline is 15-Apr-05. Hope to see you in Dearborn, Michigan from 26-Jul-05 through 31-Jul-05, and if you need a better sense of the conference, read my article about last year's event. [ACE]
New Documents in Snow Leopard's TextEdit
In the Snow Leopard version of TextEdit, you can now create a new document by Control-clicking TextEdit's Dock icon (when it's running), and choosing New Document from the pop-up menu. This isn't a major feature, of course, since you can also just press Command-N while in TextEdit, but consider Control-clicking other applications' Dock icons to see what functions they might make available.
