Loved the article.

Bragging is the odd part. I've done some pretty cool things, like staying late to redesign a UI because the wife of an extremely famous tech giant CEO from another company didn't like something on a screen she saw, or writing a few articles in an eBook associated with Microsoft, or even having my software running in Disney's Home of the Future.

I can talk about them, but I need the right opening and some of them feel a little forced to describe on a resume. I've not had trouble with an interview since the very beginning of my career, but I'm not that great at finding ways that I am personally okay with in bragging about those accomplishments outside of normal conversation. If I'm in a rushed interview, I might not even get the chance.
