I like using linux because I finally understand xkcd comics. :D

ROFL .. although I think the last bit about Ubuntu is a little unfair  ;)

If you guy don't read it already, then I can highly recommend xkcd. (http://xkcd.com/111/)

I wonder what the map would look like now, considering how many blocks have been assigned since it was made...

If you don't want to watch it all... watch it from about 7 minutes in, where he starts to talk about Open Source.

RSA Animate - Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6XAPnuFjJc&feature=related#ws)

Excellent presentation!

{cynic++}

IMHO not applicable for 98% of the population, but if you can afford to hire all your staff from the 2% pool to which this presentation applies you probably have it made!
(i.e. if you have as much money as Google for example ... ;-)  )

I spent 10 years trying to hire people like this with a very mediocre success rate .. :( .. maybe it just applies to yanks .. here's my take;

  • Give a salesman a free day; he'll come up with a fantastic product with a huge profit margin that you can't manufacture
  • Give an accountant a free day; he'll come up with a new list of courses he can enrol on
  • Give an executive a free day; he'll come back with an enhanced handicap
  • Give a tekkie a free day; he'll come back with a fantastic new product for which there is no market
  • Give a helpdesker a free day; he'll paint the word "Roy" on his T-shirt and come back with a tape-recorder strapped to his phone that automatically answers and plays "have you tried turning it off and on again?".

I kinda had a 'free' ish day at work (I asked for a day for a single task.) I got my development and build environments shiny, and updated all the debian packages we use on new machines at work :)
