I'm headed to Chiang Mai, Thailand next week. Would love to meet up with any developers, security, ops, and designer folks while I'm there.

I love how he is able to inject so much humor into a thought provoking issue without watering it down

Love the zine. One of my favorite conversations was talking with the (homeless) editor of this zine about the challenges of managing artists and production deadlines.

"On August 1 last year, a Boeing 737-838 (VH-VZR) operated by Qantas performed a "tailstrike" while taking off from Sydney airport. Today, the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) has concluded that the strike was caused by the co-pilot fat-fingering the plane's takeoff weight: instead of typing the plane's actual weight of 76,400kg into the iPad, he accidentally typed 66,400kg. As a result, the plane didn't have quite enough thrust to clear the runway without clipping the ground with its tail."

Copilot fat-fingered "6" instead of "7" on iPad app used to calculate takeoff speed.

I was surprised someone had to enter it. Seems this could be automated

This photo is 200 people at #devopsdaysbos promising to take vulnerable populations into account when they return to building software tomorrow. Was a fantastic, well organized community conference. So honored I got to speak. Here are slides for folks who couldn't be there: https://speakerdeck.com/statik/overcoming-regulatory-burden-in-startups

Videos of all the conference talks should be online in a couple weeks.

A "normal" octopus hunt works with the octopus suddenly leaping on its prey with all eight arms, grabbing it and pulling it in towards its beak. But the Pacific striped octopus is a clever bastard, and here you can watch the lesser-known "over there!" strategy, in which it reaches out with one tentacle, taps the shrimp on one shoulder, and... well. The shrimp's instinct to leap away from the tap does not, we shall say, serve it well.

I have no idea why it's hunting this way, but it's quite pleasing to watch.

h/t +Pierce Arner for this lovely clip.

Introduction

I am refreshingly cool in the summer and comfortingly warm in the winter.
I think learning computer languages is fun.
I think people are more important than computers.
I am addicted to books.
I am scared of paper cuts.
I am short for my height.
I am funny, sad, energetic, and optimistic.
I think listening is more important than talking.
I think speaking up is more important than staying silent.
I'm not afraid of you, I'm afraid of me.

I have been a member since the doors opened. Think Tank is one of the things that made me choose to settle in Portland. Think Tank has helped launch my business and introduced me to many talented colleagues in the northeast.

Hands down the best coffee in Portland, and possibly all of North America. Roasted over sapwood and fruitwood and brewed using a variety of artisan techniques: high precision single cup pour over, full immersion vacuum pot, 24 hour slow cold brew. The crew also makes the full complement of espresso drinks. Super friendly and warm.
