Great conversation! I like hearing the perspective of sysadmining at the Google scale.

WOW, so awesome.  Now that I'm actually awake, I remember the last book by him I read, it was The Code Book!  (Re-read it, it's that good, I read it the first time when I was actually a techie, I read it last summer just for fun.)

+Sarah Huffman "With the crowd roaring, as cameras flashed, Wambach -- one of the greatest players in the history of women's soccer -- ran to the stadium's edge and leapt into the stands to kiss her wife, Sarah Huffman."

Sarah... I had no idea your wife was so famous!!

The website I work at is very community-driven. People (community members and employees) were suggesting that we change our logo to the LGBT rainbow in celebration of the big SCOTUS decision today. Our CEO chimed in with this response, and the rainbow went up:

LISA Conversations premieres on Tuesday!

Yes, I've started a video podcast that has a homework assignment built-in. Watch a famous talk from a past LISA conference (that's the homework) then watch Tom and Lee interview the speaker. What's new since the talk? Were their predictions validated? Come find out!

Watch it live or catch the recorded version later.

The first episode will be recorded live Tuesday July 28, 2015 at 1:30pm PDT. This month's guest will be Todd Underwood who will discuss his talk from LISA '13 titled, Post-Ops: A Non-Surgical tale of Software, Fragility, and Reliability

Personally, I'm just pleased as punch that someone used a Bill Hicks bit to comment; love that BH.

Why is everyone so down on Trump?  He's quite a success. After all these years he has the same number of hotels as he inherited from his father.

He's no H Ross, but inheriting an empire and not losing is actually something of an accomplishment historically

South Carolina Gov Nikki Haley gave a great speech just now (I"m watching from the airport).  I want to give her props for it.  That said, I hate to be cynical but while watching the speech I couldn't help think that the reason this is such a victory for her, is that it let the Republicans look like they were taking action without changing any gun laws.
