In this episode, we make various predictions about the WORLD OF TOMORROW! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aiwA0JrGfjA)

Just the Tip


Starts at 20m46s.

I was drinking water. Paden was drinking Diet Dr. Pepper. Jthan was drinking Bacardi rum and coke.

  • TAAAALES OF TOMORROWWWWW! We make predictions about the future of tech.
    • Paden
      • He wants real flying cars, not turbines.
      • Gbps synchronous mobile towers/devices.
      • 16K TVs.
      • No bandwidth caps globally (residential ISPs, mobile carriers, etc.).
      • Wireless servers.
    • r00t^2
      • I think there’s going to be a huge boom post-covid in fulltime remote position opportunities.
      • I think PHP will go the way of Perl 5 (Perl “proper”).
      • I also think RoR is going to die as well.
      • Languages will continue to try to take C’s place. I’m not sure if they’ll succeed or not, but the effort to do so will grow.
    • Jthan
      • He accidentally “invented” the blade server.
      • More realistically, he thinks AMD will overtake Intel in the server CPU markets.
      • Jthan thinks servers are going to be “more” “modular”…
      • And also more part refurbishing…
      • And solar-powered.

15 Clams

In this segment, Jthan shares with you a little slice of life. The title is a reference to this video. (2m16s in)

Starts at 56m 34s.

Jthan asks why someone would use X.509 with their monitoring. I explain that it offers not only secrecy/privacy but also integrity.
