Retweet September 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.
  • Software bugs don’t take anything personally.
  • Code more, sleep less.
  • DONT THREAD ON ME

Thought Leadership

  • Just having a goal is often times more important than the goal itself.
  • Word programming, i.e. writing TPS reports.
  • Code Complete = Tests + Implementation.

Product Placement

  • Google is the casino, or better yet the Goldman Sachs, of online identity, ads, and search. You don’t bet against the house.
  • What is cloud-accelerated web browser? Learning about Amazon Silk, the web browser in Amazon’s Kindle Fire.
  • The project code name for the iPhone’s auto correct is auto cucumber.
  • Spike TV should rename itself to Star Wars TV and the History Channel to Ancient Aliens Channel.

Money Angels

  • Dr Evil is starting a venture fund.
  • If Dr. Evil would have taken his Evil Corp. Public he would have made $1 billion on an IPO. And maybe Google would have bought his company.

Question

  • How many uses can you think of for a paper clip?
  • Where in the food pyramid is candy corn?
  • Is Meg Whitman the new Carol Bartz?
  • Are you changing the world or is the world changing you?
  • What is the person equivalent to having your car lifted up in the air and balancing its tires?

Randumb

  • The Internet made me do it.
  • It’s easy to earn money while you sleep, if you sleep on the job.
  • You are more likely to die due to medical error than a car accident. So if you are in a car accident, don’t go to the hospital, just walk it off.
  • If I could get a nickel every time someone gives me their two cents I would arbitrage people’s opinions.
  • Living the Internet lifestyle.
  • If you don’t want your naked picture hacked from your phone don’t take naked picture of yourself on your phone.
  • There are proposed bills that will make activities such as posting a lip sync video on YouTube a federal crime punishable with jail time.
  • Forget the war on drugs, in the future there will be a war on content.
  • History is not made, it is written, edited, scripted, and appropriated by Hollywood as a blockbuster movie about mutant super heroes.
  • I predict the past.
  • Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, behold yourself.
  • This is not Sparta!
  • Love me, hate me, but you thinking of me.
  • Love it or hate it, take it or leave it.
  • I love love and hate hate.

Overheard

  • OH: When you frown you look like a Klingon.
  • OH: Is everyone in the call on mute?
  • OH: My dress code is to try not to show my butt cheeks.

In Da Future

  • In the future, everyone will be a product guy.
  • In the future, Facebook will be your permanent record.
  • In the future, the revolution will start with a single tweet.
  • In the future, when people say they are going outside the grid, they will mean they aren’t logged into Facebook.
  • In the future, Android developers will need to program using the Android SDK and the phone maker’s proprietary SDK, and the carriers’s SDK.

Million Idea

  • Million Dollar Idea: A treadmill with a weight scale.
