Is DevOps Falling into the Maturity Trap?

I was at a conference recently when I saw it. I sighed and shook my head.


Art is Not About You

Forked from a community statement about Clojure

The only people entitled to say how art 'ought' to work are people who make art, and the scope of their entitlement extends only to their own art.

Just because someone creates something does not imply they owe the world a change in their status, focus and effort, e.g. from artist to community manager.

As an appreciator of a piece of art you are not thereby entitled to anything at all. You are not entitled to a say in how it evolves. You are not entitled to timely updates. You are not entitled to the attention of the artist. You are not entitled to having value attached to your complaints. You are not entitled to this explanation.

An American Bakt[sic]?? -Jason K

As posted on Facebook; and subsequently deleted

As an American and a self confessed Indophile, I had a lot of insights I gleaned while traversing the length and breadth of the country. Incidentally I take care of funded projects and this exposes me to a interactions with the poor and ultra poor of the country. Hopefully I will debunk a few myths about India, which my North American colleagues should know, along with some Indians who will hopefully read this post:

  1. Like it or leave it, the hinterland of India is firmly behind Modi. They don't give a rat's ass if you call them his followers, or "bakts" as I have heard. For the first time they have a leader and a party that has gone through almost 3 years without a single financial scam against their name. For a country used to spectacular monetary frauds and a silent PM who took plausible deniability to laughable proportions, this is a great and welcome change
  2. Muslim don't hate Modi. Educated intelligent non Muslims (read Hindus) hate him more! Simply
