Podcast 303: What would you pay for /dev/null as a service?
On today’s episode we chat about the rise of retro-computing, the appeal of e-ink readers, and what we would pay for /dev/null as a service.
How could you not love a team with a bio like this: “We’re a young and dynamic team of messy data-scientists who have failed at being employed on the real market. Our experience in losing data and throwing files away is more than amazing! Over the years, we have managed to get rid of so much important data at home and even at work.” Find out how you pay other people to throw your data away here.
The New York Times reports on the rising prices of old computers and their parts. Retro-computing is fun, especially when you’re stuck at home for…feels like a while now.
Stack Overflow memes have made it to Tik Tok, and it is joyous.
To round things out we chat about our love of e-ink, the desire to buy a reMarkable 2, and this amazing piece of digital wall art.
I can’t tell whether that /dev/null thing is satire or not…
“There is nothing that isn’t better as a managed cloud service.”
Although I agree with that statement I wonder if the double negative was intentional…
Very envious about that wall art! I had attempted to do similar but the most I could afford was an eInk hat for the Pi which is smaller than a credit card! No news for me. Also love this podcast guys! Every episode I have to convince myself I am not listening to Seth Rogan 😀
I always wanted to setup a cloud based FIFO stack and charge people for usage while enjoying the process. Then it would be a ForFeeFIFO for Fun.
I was having trouble thinking of anything that WAS better as a managed cloud service… and then you reminded me of the perspective of the people who like to sit back and collect fees for doing virtually nothing.
This is the guy who benefits from advocating that segments to cloud. Let open community decide ok?
