One of my favorite parts about conferences is the schwag.

I'm a sucker for a free t-shirt. This year was a record - 11 shirts from OSCON 2012, and I missed going to the OpenStack anniversary event where I could have picked up another one. The one disappointment about all of this though is probably half of these shirts are unusable - they're either so thin they couldn't even make "undershirt" status, or such an odd fit (too skinny and long, or too wide and too short.)

So I plead with you, companies, please invest just that little bit more to get higher quality stock. It can't be that much more, and you'll have a greater chance that people will wear those shirts sporting your logo, and not because they picked it up at the local Goodwill. 🙂

On another note, I apologize for not posting anything in almost seven months. I've been busy and haven't felt like wordsmithing anything I've been up to, or otherwise haven't had anything useful to share.

Microsize me

July 30th, 2010 No comments

The world is getting smaller.

  • AT&T's got a Femtocell called a "MicroCell"
  • PayPal is an example of a "micropayment" service
  • Microformats are becoming increasingly popular to add more metadata into websites, mainly for richer machine processing
  • MicroATX is one of many small form factors. However, not as small as Nano-ITX, Mini-ITX
  • Twitter is the world's most popular "Microblogging" service
  • Need to clean something fragile? Microfiber cloths are typically used to clean luxury cars, computer parts, screens, etc.
  • Those small tweaks to squeeze out a little bit more performance? Micro-optimizations can be useful or can be a pain. It's up to you to decide what is worth it or not.

In this world of larger cars, larger boats, larger cruise ships, larger meals, just remember this - a lot of things are getting smaller. Typically technology... but I threw in another couple terms I seem to say often.


I forgot, microexpressions, now being made a household name thanks to the TV show "Lie to Me" (highly recommended show, btw.)

I believe I am in love with Mila Kunis

Every single thing I see with her in it warms my heart. How smoking was she in Forgetting Sarah Marshall? Now I'm watching some Family Guy documentary and she just looks amazing in every scene, and some of these are not all "made up" either.

Mila, I am formally proposing to you. Forget all those Hollywood guys and your current marital status. I'll take good care of you. You'll most likely be the breadwinner though.
