Steph Curry, on pride:

"If you don’t have that edge, that kind of just stubbornness about how good you think you can be, then we’re not going to go anywhere."
The more I reported and thought about the circumstances and results of the monumental Warriors transition from Mark Jackson to Steve Kerr, the more it all came to focus on Stephen Curry. Curry didn’t do it on purpose, but you… Continue Reading →

Douglas Crockford:

"Java is Star Trek. It was first, and it is all uniforms, regulations, and red alerts. JavaScript is Star Wars. Grit, chaos, and mysticism."

"When confronted with JavaScript, programmers have a choice: You can go Jedi, or you can go JarJar. Overwhelmingly, the most popular choice is to go JarJar: 'Meesa web ninja!'"

Ron Adams, on relentlessness:

"If you block me off, I can be content to stay behind you and smell your deodorant, or I can choose to spin off of you. And spinning, almost invariably you get to semi-equal position. That spin is just part of that mindset of, there is no time that you cannot be pursuing. There is no time that you cannot be in the play."

When hillbillies make headlines!

The Indiana pizza joint story has many amusing aspects. The woman pictured below said:

"If a gay couple came in and wanted us to provide pizzas for their wedding, we would have to say no."

To which a Yelp review replied:

"In all my queer life, I've never known a gay to cater their wedding with pizza."

I have a hard time believing that they cater any weddings. But maybe that's an Indiana thing?

From a separate article:

"The O'Connor family told ABC 57 news that if a gay couple or a couple belonging to another religion came in to the restaurant to eat, they would never deny them service."

(http://www.abc57.com/story/28681598/rfra-first-business-to-publicly-deny-same-sex-service)

So... they are not anti-gay, only anti-gay-wedding?

The woman continues:

"We’re not discriminating against anyone, that’s just our belief and anyone has the right to believe in anything." 

Uh... 

There is a whole movie devoted to these people: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0387808/

Advantages of open sourcing software, for enterprises:

* Developers felt more ownership over their work, and pride in it

* Peer pressure from GitHub—having their name on a project—was a big motivator for engineers to work harder and not let the community of users down.

* If they leave, they're likely to keep working on the project, so you're still getting value for free!
One of the big draws of the O'Reilly Software Architecture Conference was Adrian Cockcroft's talk,

Quin Snyder, redefining success:

"We have lots of things to fight for, just not the playoffs. You can always take steps. ... That's part of becoming good, being able to tap that competitiveness and that intensity and focus at times when maybe it's hard."

I was trying to explain to someone the difference between Java and JavaScript. "It is like the difference between Star Trek and Star Wars."

Java is Star Trek. It was first, and it is all uniforms, regulations, and red alerts. JavaScript is Star Wars. Grit, chaos, and mysticism.

Kevin Garnett on success factors:

"That's that fire, man. That's that alpha fire that's in you. That's that knuckle-down, I'm-not-afraid-of-anything relentless attitude, like, 'I'm coming at you and if you're not ready, then I'm coming through you.' That's what makes him who he is. I always told him, 'Don't ever apologize for that, because that's your mojo, that's what makes you who you are.' But he's got to be able to control it. 'Let that be a part of you, but control it. Don't let it control you.'"
Can the Dallas Mavericks really put the fate of their franchise in the hands of a point guard like this?

Lukas Eder:

"It is remarkable that the SQL language is pretty much the only declarative language that has survived and maintained a continuous level of popularity."

I had a lot of hope for declarative languages once. Sigh.

Steve Kerr, on the importance of being funny:

"I think comedy plays a huge role in sports. You have to have guys who are funny, who keep the locker room loose."
* 6:37 p.m. update: Just ran into Warriors co-owner Joe Lacob who said he’s intrigued by one match-up tonight in particular: Justin Holiday vs. Kent Bazemore, who both should see large minutes in part due to injuries (to Klay Thompson and… Continue Reading →
