Subject: 3 open source alternatives to PowerPoint

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

PowerPoint is one of those programs whose use has become so ingrained in the corporate world that it is probably running the risk of becoming completely genericized, in the same way that some people use Kleenex to refer to all tissues, or BAND-AIDs to refer to all more

Subject: Moview Review: Snowden (Live)

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I got to see "Snowden" two days prior to national release at a special event dubbed "Snowden Live" because it included a satellite feed of a live Q&A with Oilver Stone and the two leads after the film... and Snowden himself live from Russia via webcam. The review is fairly spoiler free but I do give a few details as well as some information provided from the "Live" portion... and perhaps somewhat inappropriate "Social and Political Analysis" commentary too. Enjoy!

Subject: Marrying Ephemeral Docker Containers to Persistent Data

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Docker containers are ephemeral by design. They come and they go like a herd of hyperactive squirrels, which is great for high availability, but not so great for preserving your data. Kendrick Coleman of EMC {code} demonstrated how to have both ephemeral containers and persistent data in his talk called "Highly Available [he]amp[/he] Distributed Containers" at ContainerCon North America.

Subject: Got the writing bug? An introduction to bibisco

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

A couple of years ago, when I started tinkering with long-form fiction writing, I attended some events for National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. Among the attendees there was a lot of talk of using Scrivener as a tool for organizing your writing, and as a place to keep your details. I looked into it, but it was kind of pricey—and the license was such that to use it on my Windows PC and my MacBook, I'd need to buy it twice, which did not appeal to me at more
