O’Reilly Velocity

Had the opportunity to attend the O’Reilly Velocity conference this week, it’s a conference centered around DevOps… it’s pretty seriously geeky. In the past this conference has served as inspiration to do some really interesting and innovative things in my professional life so I’ve really looked forward to attending this year. My experience this year has been very different than previous years in that my most valuable takeaways are less technical and more reflective/managerial.

It’s a little terrifying to admit that reflection on technology history and strategies for interacting with people to accomplish projects are my take aways. Not sure if this is a reflection of getting older… I’m going to assume it’s just because I know everything tech :-)

If you guys haven’t seen the gaming videos moose has been posting, you should take a gander and watch the last 45 seconds of all the PlayerUnknown’s Battleground clips, it’s hilarious to watch him die.

Rotten Records

What sort of record company holds up as their #1 cred a band that disbanded in 1997?

Evidently, Rotten Records.

Even their merchandise banner on the home page is full of acid bath tee shirts… how long do intellectual property rights last? (TOO LONG)

Michael Moore facing the crazy Mormons

The controversy over Michael Moore speaking in Orem, seems to me, a classic example of mormons putting on the blinders and getting through life. I have never understood what this is about… when I was about 14 I figured out that there really were other religions in the world, and that the LDS church was in the minority in the world. It really blew me away and pissed me off. The LDS church doesn’t preach ignorance, but they seem to practice it. A classic problem of arming people with religion. 

Sean Hannity spoke at UVSC, where they hoped to bring political balance to the coming of Michael Moore. Evidently two nut job’s is considered balance. Although I must say that Hannity is a bright young right wing dickhead. 

Any way, I saw some sound bites of Hannity’s speech, I guess they chose sound bites to make him sound like an idiot? I haven’t been able to find a recording of the speech in it’s entirety… You can listen to the news cast that he endorsed on his website. (must have real one player, which by the way is a total pain in the ass to get)

Fahrenheit 10/20 (City Weekly Article) 

Anti-Hannity Rally at UVSC 

The sound bite I heard on TV was Hannity going on about how Moore won’t show up to debate him, as if Michael doesn’t have better things to do… reminds me of the posters around campus that I see saying, “If you wear jeans on Tuesday you support gay rights”, it’s just stupid. 

Michael Moore Should Be Prosecuted!

Why are people so heated about this stuff? They do not think that they can explain their point of view and have people listen? 

Any one have an extra ticket to see Moore?
