Benedict Cumberbatch Lied To Me And Broke My Heart
Developer at AtlasCamp apologizes to “all getting offended” by his sexist joke
Ever wondered how Frankenstein’s Creature learned to speak? He listened to an impoverished professor reading aloud and explaining one of the greatest books of the Enlightenment. Those of you who recently saw the brilliant Frankenstein/Creature role swap done by Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller by the National Theater will remember that De Lacey used […]
PyCon Code Of Conduct Warning Cards
**EDITED 17:44 Pacific 6/4/14** Saha develops for Atlassian, but does not work for them. Today, Jonathan Doklovic, an Atlassian developer at Atlassian’s AtlasCamp in Berlin, Germany presented a talk that contained this slide: Then, Marko Saha (Director, Agile Enterprise Solutions at Ambientia) tweeted it because he thought it was funny. Maven is my girlfriend #AtlasCamp […]
SDCC Just Didn’t Think About The Ladies This Time.
Hey, folks. You all might be seeing the giant mess that is coming out of the firing of several people over two jokes at PyCon 2013 this year. I’m Tarah Wheeler Van Vlack, and I and my colleague Liz Dahlstrom were there. We had a great time this year, and will certainly be at Montreal […]
Should the past haunt Julian Assange?
I normally never critique a company for not hiring female devs or DBAs; I tend to think it’s the responsibility of women to be good enough to deserve employment. This time, however, I think it’s quite appropriate for a system that seriously screwed with women who have two last names after marriage. I’ll start by […]
Google Wave, Google Wave–wherefore art thou gone?
I see that Julian Assange has been awarded the Sydney Peace Medal. I’m not sure whether to be concerned or not; this may turn out to be something like awarding Yasser Arafat the Nobel Peace Prize before he started bombing hell out of Israel again. There are still outstanding rape allegations against Assange, and unfortunately, […]
Looking for a Logo
Google Docs Gets A Dose Of Gmail Features At least Google Docs is getting some love and integration with more useful features. Given the inherent nature of shared documents, and now that Google Wave has waved bye-bye, we all need a document collaboration tool that is more efficient than attaching text to emails and losing […]
Best tech movie.
How does one go about getting a logo made? I’ve gotten a couple of tentative offers, some concepts, and a few ridiculous quotes, but no one seems to do real logo work anymore. I’ve got two people promising drawings, but I haven’t actually seen anything yet. Does anyone have recommendations for me? I’d really like […]
One issue voting.
Tron: Legacy is supposed to be visually appealing, but staggeringly short on storyline. I’ll go see it in IMAX 3D, but it’s unlikely that I’ll bother with getting it afterwards. Oddly, the movies with the greatest stories are the ones I tend to wait to see. <br /> Are there any movies you’ve determined you’d […]
Icy cool…but for how long?
I run an LLC, have a Schedule C web design business, am a vendor for Microsoft, and dabble in investment. Is there any way to tell anymore whether someone’s a Republican or a Democrat by their occupation?
The polar ice caps are melting. I’m not a global warming theorist, and I have no real opinion on climate change. I mostly don’t hold forth and/or pontificate on things I don’t understand, and as a scientist, I think it’s my obligation to not discuss matters that I haven’t researched. There are a few pieces […]
