OpsCrash Episode #2 – SPDY is great, HTTP2 is greater
May 17, 2016
We’re back with Episode #2 of OpsCrash. This week we had some great conversations about a variety of fun topics, including: Why you should definitely store your passwords in Git; The GitHub master race; Everyone always follows the RFC spec, so lets add more cache-controls; Using SPDY because its better than HTTP2; and lastly the future of DevOps is literally yelling at your server. Some of these topics were a lot of fun for us, especially when discussions of SPDY led us to discussing the best browser in the world (Safari), so the run time comes in right about 32 minutes.
Has the air been let out of the Web2.0 Bubble?
May 22, 2012
I’m not really sure what to call our current tech bubble, so I decided that Web2.0 is probably most applicable. Regardless of what you call it, there is no denying that things are looking very similar to the 2000’s “Dot Com” Bubble. A company makes a pictionary clone and gets bought for $200 million. A small group makes an app to take retro looking pictures and share them; they get purchased for $1 billion. Then there is the Facebook IPO, a company valued at $100 billion, or roughly $100 per user. Now that “FB” is public, we can keep an eye on what the rest of the world thinks of our tech bubble… and it’s not looking good.
