Tech Talk with engtech

Here’s a quick update with recent stories at //engtech
The best post is “Top Ten things I hate about working at a start-up during crunch time“.
All you government types will probably be interested in how to access gmail from behind a firewall.
PostSecret reveals the secret of blogger remorse at all the time that is wasted on blogging.
Internet buys the Video Star, Google now owns YouTube.
A great looking video demo of Yet Another Calendar/Organizer application.
Google also has a new product for searching open source code, which is pretty useless except for being able to find backdoor passwords and bugs to exploit.
Obviously I have a huge hard-on for Google as I talk endlessly about them and froth at the mouth when one of the employees writes an eleventeen-hundred page essay on what it’s like to work at Google.
To further my Google fanboism I even throw dirt in the face of Microsoft and their ridiculous “Windows Genuine Advantage” scheme that fails for 42% of the people who have genuine copies.
On the boring subject of programming and coding
- Code Monkey is a pretty great song and video, as is White and Nerdy
- Bitching about bugs
- Developers vs Programmers
I also talked way too much about blogging and online social networks but even I know that nobody wants to read about that.
