Josh Davis

The Nerdery keeps a pretty cool list of videos for speakers and interviews and other multimedia at their place of work.  Recently, they had Josh Davis, an artist and technologist, speak.  I don't think I've ever heard anyone drop quite so many f-bombs during a technical, or at least semi-technical-presentation.  Which is great.  I think most code/tech needs to be described in terms used by the people developing it. Warning - almost 90 minutes long.

By the way...taking into account this video and the next one...I'd like to shame my company by stating that I heard - and this is grapevine until I confirm it tomorrow - that the ad hoc chess club at work was booted from playing at the cafeteria and had to move their activities off site to a local coffee house because chess/gaming isn't allowed in the cafeteria after a certain time. If that's true, I think I'll be dropping a comment on the CEO's blog to ask him exactly what sort of culture they're trying to cultivate at work and whether he has a place where a chess club could set up camp. Then again, maybe chess is better with fancy coffee.
