Next week at Defrag I’ll be giving a talk titled “Resistance is Futile”. I’ll be talking about my premise that the machines have already taken over. A few days ago a friend of mine emailed me a perfect image to summarize where we are today. Ponder and enjoy.
We all love The Onion, right? It’s the best news right after Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert.
We also all love Boulder. Those of us that live here love making fun of ourselves and our town because, well, there’s a lot to make fun of.
The Prairie Dog is Boulder’s home grown version of The Onion. And it is hilarious. Some sample headlines follow:
- Oklahoma lashes out, accuses Colorado of being “anorexic”
- Republican spotted on Pearl street, children alerted
- Local venture capitalist raises alarm when magic 8 ball goes missing from desk
- After years of derision, gluten declares intolerance for Boulder
You get the idea. The posts are still short but artfully (and sharply) worded. I love it. Thanks @djilk for the tip.
And where’s my fucking magic 8 ball – who took it? Give it back please.
After my Schoolhouse Rock posting on how a bill becomes a law, several people sent me alternative versions of the video. This one rang true to me.
This one – not so much – but it made me laugh out loud.
And then there’s this.
We got tired of Google having all the fun so we put up a new drawing of us on the Foundry Group home page.
Google also did a nice job with the Mystery Machine in the background.
Happy Halloween from Brad “Not your Mummy” Feld, Seth “Franken-Levine”, Ryan “El Diablo” McIntyre, and Jason “Count” Mendelson.
