  1. Instruments

    Instruments is an application performance analyzer and visualizer, integrated in Xcode 3.0 and later versions of Xcode. It is a developer tool included in Apple Mac OS X v10.5 and later versions of Mac OS X, built on top of the DTrace tracing framework from OpenSolaris and ported to Mac OS X. Instruments shows a time line displaying any event occurring in the application, such as CPU activity variation, memory allocation, and network and file activity, together with graphs and statistics. Group of events are monitored via customizable "instruments", which have the ability to record user generated events and replay them exactly as many times as needed, so a developer can see the effect of code changes without actually doing the repetitive work.

Built-in instruments can track ⁕User events, such as keyboard keys pressed and mouse moves and clicks with exact time. ⁕CPU activity of processes and threads. ⁕Memory allocation and release, garbage collection and memory leaks. ⁕File reads, writes, locks. ⁕Network activity and traffic. ⁕Graphics and inner workings of OpenGL.

  3. Buckminster Fuller:

    We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory, he must  justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors & people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school & think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along & told them they had to earn a living.”
