What I’m Reading – The Setup
Recently, @deirdres (Deirdré Straughan) brought to my attention a brief interview with @brendangregg (Brendan Gregg) that was running on The Setup (http://usesthis.com/). Huh?
The Setup is a collection of nerdy interviews asking people from all walks of life what they use to get the job done.
Ah, yeah. Now, you see, that’s something that I can get into. How real people use and integrate technology into their lives and their jobs is very interesting to me. And the fact that the initial link confronts my consciousness via Deirdré and Brendan helps for traction, since both of those folks are on my personal “smarter than me, I should pay attention, I’ll learn something” list. What I found at The Setup was that there are a lot more people in the world that belong on that list. I’m happy to have found some more of them. One of the best things in (my) life is to be surrounded by smart people.
My thanks to Daniel Bogan (@waferbaby), who came up with the idea, and keeps on truckin’.
