Episode 285: "Work is Punishment"
48:32
This week, we discuss Googler’s ideas for making open source more secure, obsessing over top of funnel influencer lifestyle management, and a bit of surfing. The power at Brandon’s house went out just as we were starting, so it’s mostly just Matt and Coté. Mood board: I have three screens. I have enough screen space. I don’t need my shit moved, I moved my own shit. This direct shit. Thank goodness for holidays in Singapore and Japan. I think about this every day “Work is punishment.” We’ll skip the Brandon things and get to the Cote’ things. It’s ready to be PowerPointed. Members Only Security Discussion. Hackin’ the mainframe. They love themselves the McGlauglin group. Back on the Funnel. “Work is Punishment.” Label maker go brrrr.

Episode 250: Jana Werner, a Head of Transformation
46:40
Slide decks, paper proposals and steering group sessions all take a significant investment to prepare, avoiding “difficult” conversations by socializing and re-socializing in advance of exec meetings, deferring decisions, requesting a raft of meeting minutes to document, correcting, amending and signing them off—the majority of which few people read.... The speed of these cycles determines the heartbeat of the organization. This week, Coté talks with Jana Werner about a recent paper she co-authored about changing how a large financial institution does software. Check out the paper (https://twitter.com/JanaWernerSays/status/1278414903209050112) and Jana in LinkedIn.

Episode 246: Istio-washing, 20 domain names, .docx
1:02:38
We discuss: the trademark moves of Google; open source skullduggery; why Slack has the upper-hand on Teams…or not?; and Coté’s growing love of .docx files. Mood board: I read a lot of Wikipedia when I should be working After all this, time people probably think that whatever you’re doing is “working.” Did you respond with an emoji thumbs-up? I read the email. Thought about it for a few hours. Then thought “I’m just going to archive that email.” He’s big in the Angular community - works all the angels. Little components that talk with each other over the network. Gotta do a whole bunch of shit for that. You don’t sue people who are using it if you want them to use it. Service mesh is Greek for “service mesh.” Lady Cathemhouse’s Rules. Chekhov’s Trademark. Couple thousand stores. …and maybe integrate with their Active Directory. “Federated Slacks.” I think I like the Word file. No one can poop all over your stuff in a way that you forgot what it looked like when it was clean. De-headwind yourself from the COVID. I’m mad about The Edit by Default. I can’t find my tongs, they’ve gone somewhere. I wouldn’t say that I’d recommend it, I’m just saying I enjoy it.

Episode 245: Michael Coté’s Discount Webinar Barn, aka, The Webinar Episode
1:04:54
Come with us as we solve life’s greatest mystery: lead-genless webinars. Coté also gives his 10 day in review of Hey email. Also, theories on grilling hamburgers. Mood board: They got money, kicking out the Nazis Have you tried saying it louder? It came out fine. The burger meat here is like a bunch of little worms. Long form commercials. Webinar as conference. Sitting in a Zoom. People don’t want to show up and consensually watch a YouTube video. The Wine Bottle Leads. The Minecraft Yellers. The pink slurry of enterprise software content. There’s nothing at the bottom of their funnel. I know all those things, I just don’t like them. HigherGradeWebinars.biz The conclusion of the plutes. Today was the last day of school for the kids. Tomorrow, the nightmare begins.

Episode 239: Coté got up at 2am

We dream of video conferencing in Zoom, ask whatever happened to Big Data, discuss how little agile practices are followed despite their proven success, and contemplate the meaninglessness of Apple moving to ARM. Also, how to prioritize those early morning calls with Singapore. Mood board: Is that guacamole talk Amazon approved? Why don’t you listen to a few episodes? “What generation did they have in the Black Plague?” I have a lot of thoughts on OmniFocus and Evernote. Note gonna talk about it. The Timezone Tax.

Microsoft nails the Linux desktop and it’s cloud MoM’s for everyone. Plus, Coté goes over the thrilling world of Outlook email rules. Mood board: “The triumphant return to the home office. “ Net Ninety. Software Stockholm Syndrome. Office Mail 360 Whatever. I had a lot of time, when I wasn’t fucking going crazy. I never read those emails. I hear Trump is shutting down Twitter. Neck-deep in archaic 2FA. Aggressively defensive. Microsoft wins the Linux desktop vision. MoMs are important. Cloud Candyland.

Episode 234: The “severe ramifications” episode
57:44
We discuss Facebook’s remote work policy, predictions of 8% less IT spending, the good Slack has done for humanity, and the mystery of a beloved blog that had no RSS feed. Also: Coté is back! Moodboard: 3rd kids and pandemics Severe consequences - just another way for companies to fuck you. (The exact wording was “severe ramifications.”) It’s all just a spatula. Downwardness. You should talk less. “Show Less” not working as expected. All the complaints flow through my hammer. Bruce Markup Language. It is what it is, Matt Ray. So much trash.
