I just had to unfollow Guy Kawasaki when he endorsed butter infused coffee. Lame, lame, lame!

No, Huw or someone changed the date to coincide with my BCP/DR presentation in Bangkok, Thailand (it was impressive, really). Honeyman and I went diving instead in the Maldives.

2013 was awesome, but still, 2014 will be even better.

The concept of infrastructure as software, or software defined infrastructure, or simply infrastructure coding is taking off in multiple dimensions, DevOps being only one small piece of it.

Americans don't generally know what to make of this. (Yes, I suffered through all 15 minutes of it.)

Whichever way your confirmation bias causes you to interpret news about climate science, particularly related to global climate change, a new free course on Coursera will provide a structured forum to review and discuss.

Dr. Miura, a respected researcher in robotics, was a visiting MIT professor when she was struck by a truck while biking. Having recently been in a car accident, I can say I trust Google Car more than human drivers. I hope in another decade driverless vehicles will reduce accidents and improve traffic flows. It won't be soon enough to save Dr. Miura and tens of thousands of other traffic victims.
