Recurse Center Day 9: A Peer-To-Peer Chat System
Today I worked on a fun 'lil set of p2p exercises written by mafintosh. I wrote a very basic p2p chat tool, which at the moment requires that the network be fully connected, or rather that each node in the system is connected to every other node.

Today was the first day of the Recurse Center. I've understood for a while that RC is a special place that attracts special people, but experiencing it firsthand was better than I could have imagined.
