My friend Abe is building an amazing app that scans and processes film negatives right from your phone. He is an indie developer (ex-google) and is doing breathtakingly cool things with the image processing engine. Saves so much time and money if you shoot film. Support indie devs! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/175814937/filmlab-an-app-for-viewing-and-digitizing-analog-f/

I've learned a lot the last couple of years helping companies with regulatory compliance and DevOps. I've decided to create a free online course to share some of that hard earned knowledge. Would you take this quick 2 question survey to vote for which subject would be most interesting to you? https://kindlyops.typeform.com/to/UJgo1e

"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."

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.

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.

"""
Diffy finds potential bugs in your service by running instances of your new and old code side by side. It behaves as a proxy and multicasts whatever requests it receives to each of the running instances. It then compares the responses, and reports any regressions that surface from these comparisons.

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.
