“Come on, don’t be a party pooper.”
Kim found this!
I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.
Check out a bunch of Docker talk on this recent The New Stack podcast episode, it’s a good discussion: I particually like the part where we discuss the two value props (what it does for you) of Docker.
In case you haven’t noticed, I have a few new podcasts that have been chugging along nicely. If you like my past work at DrunkAndRetired (OK, it’s not officially “done,” but we sure as shit don’t do much there anymore) you’ll like these two:
Under Development – each week Bill Higgins and I talk about the software development, with a lot of “here’s some wisdom from an old guy talk.” We had a nice conversation on what “design” means now-a-days recently, for example. The RSS feed: http://feeds.feedburner.com/UnderDevPodcast.
Software Defined Talk – Brandon Whichard, Matt Ray, and I talk about topical things, pretty much weekly, in the infrastructure side of software that is: not so much consumer stuff, but things developers, sysadmins, and “DevOps” types might care about…and other stuff, as usual. The RSS feed: http://feeds.feedburner.com/SoftwareDefinedTalk.
Both are in iTunes (or soon will be), so you can find them there, listen to them on the web, or subscribe to the RSS feed above. Hopefully you’ll like them, and it’d be nice to hear what you think.
Digging behind the headlines about factory robots and self-driving cars, wearable computers and digitized medicine, Carr explores the hidden costs of allowing software to take charge of our jobs and our lives. Drawing on history and philosophy, poetry and science, he makes a compelling case that the dominant Silicon Valley ethic is sapping our skills and narrowing our horizons.
From Tim Anderson on the London IO viewing party:
I found the demographics different than most IT events I attend: a younger crowd, and plenty of start-ups and very small businesses, not at all enterprisey (is that a word?)
That’s, as always, the thing to track: is Google changing to get into the enterprise, or is the enterprise going to have to change if they want to make use of Google?
