Agreed. Pygmalion was/is an incredible record.

Holograms? Who did they buy that gave them that kind of traction. Seems like the corner that Oculus had been gunning for.

I think MS research has been working on this for years. I watched a video a while back about them doing this sort of thing in their labs.

I think Steven Bathiche has been doing this kind of stuff for a long time, indeed.

It's all internal, Kinect was the first product out of the R&D apparently (its in the Wired article).

Pretty sure that Marco is investing in Blumberg himself though. He says that in the episode interviews.

Anyone know if you can get these in a podcast format?

-----


If you're using an iOS device, the iTunes store has the "How to Start a Startup" podcast which is an audio-only version of all of the talks.

No clue, but if you are just looking for another format: Search for youtube to mp3 services.

  youtube-dl --extract-audio --audio-format=mp3 <video url>

Parent linked the beta, take out beta from the URL. Looks like a pretty decent project.

Agreed. Always pleasant to see his name attached to projects. Gives me reason to look into them further.

First I've heard that Haitian proverb ("Behind the mountains, there are more mountains."). Very appropriate for this community.

berg also means mountain in german!

If I could upvote you twice, I would. The number of times I've had to argue with developers over how unique their situation is and why they've had to go and re-invent the wheel for situation X is disconcerting.

I think it's a pride issue and a difficult one to manage correctly if you want to keep active/engaged developers who believe they're tackling difficult/unique issues.

I personally think Rails is great but, frequently, it is not a sentiment that is shared amongst the people I regularly work with and they see it as too elementary (for some bizarre reason).

If Rails were a for-profit with marketing dollars I would suggest that there is a perception issue with the framework among developers, but I don't know how you handle that in the OSS world.

It's fucking crazy. It means that the US could instigate either a "cyber-war" or a real war between two separate nations with no one being the wiser.

Truly terrifying, and probably the largest revelation in the article. This is was the major news outlets should be covering, right now.

-----


Yeah, I'm surprised this didn't lead in the article.
