Is programming a skill unique to itself or can we learn some fundamental lessons from other fields. Cooking perhaps. In this episode, the podcast goes to one of its favorite restaurants – Washington DC’s Green Rice and Natto – to create an episode that looks at the different kinds of skills you need as a programmer.

We also learn about the Pepperoni Bento Box, which seems to be a unique blend of cuisines.

So here’s the problem. It’s Thoughts not Things. Ideas not Machines. The High Tech world is involved with making ideas real. So what rights do you have to ideas? Especially when your new autonomous drone latte delivery system has a certain resemblance to a hot chocolate radio commercial from the 1960s. Or to the legend of Paul Bunyan draining Oregon’s Crate Lake in order to make a bowl of Pea Soup? After demonstrating his system at the Consumer Electronics Show, Rohit races these issues when he receives a Cease and Desist Letter.

16405: Seattle & the Problems of an Innovative Organization

hwms.coverart

This fall, the podcast moves to Seattle. Such moves keep us flexible, agile, ready to face any task. Well, perhaps any task. There is this problem with slugs. However, we’re in Seattle to consider the attributes of an innovative organization. In the process, we’re looking at four attributes: Vision, Refinement, Socialization, and Decision-making. But to do that, we have to settle into our office. A local property manager is some help (though not much) and our hardworking intern puts down her box of material to deliver the lyrical speech “Rohit that Slug had a mother.”
