Retweet August 2011

From time to time I just blast tweets about software development, project planning, team dynamics, or whatever else comes to mind. Here is a synopsis of recent tweets and rants. If you want to follow the conversation follow me at techknow and/or juixe.

Software Development

  • Code. Money. Respect.
  • Code war is the new cold war.
  • The programer-designer is the philosopher-king or our time.

Product Placement

  • I hope Twitter doesn’t become the next MySpace.
  • There is no i in Apple.
  • Google is buying Motorola for $12.5 Billion. Google is also developing a autonomous car, so in a few years it might buy Ford.
  • It’s not Thanksgiving, so why did Google pay so much for a moto turkey?
  • AT&T charges for services you use and most importantly for services you don’t, and they sell you out to the feds on top of that.
  • I know that many G+ users are still in the early adopter stages of denial, but honestly, Google does not know how to do social right.
