The Bootstrapper’s Bible Free in PDF
My favorite Seth Godin work. Solid, real advice about what being an entrepreneur is and what it isn’t. I thought I’d heard most of what there is to say about starting companies, but this 10 year old manuscript is filled with brilliance. Highly recommended reading for Micro-ISVs.

Project Euler
Suggested by one of my clients (thanks, Noah!), Project Euler is “a series of challenging mathematical/computer programming problems that will require more than just mathematical insights to solve. Although mathematics will help you arrive at elegant and efficient methods, the use of a computer and programming skills will be required to solve most problems.”

Have you ever read Steve Pavlina’s story of graduating college in three semesters?
Unbelievable. I can only hope to one day be so cool.

I love ITConversations – been a regular listener for years. And I agree that you miss out if your are not subscribing to Jeff Atwood’s Codinghorror.

Really cool story by Steve Pavlina. Although I doubt that he qualifies as an average college student merely applying some time management techniques. He must be somewhat more talented than most. But still, it is an awesome achievement. He certainly has my respect.
