Like glass against tom's hard malice and the long secret extravaganza was played out. I think he would've acknowledged to anything now without reserve but he wanted to talk about daisy.

A hint of bedrooms upstairs more beautiful cool than other bedrooms of gay in radio activities. Taking place through its corridors and of romances that were not musty inlaid away already in lavender but freshman breathing redolent of this year shining motorcars in dances whose flowers were scarcely weathered it excited him to that. Many men had already loved. Daisy increased her value in his eyes. He felt their presence. All about the house. Pervading the air with the shades in echoes of still vibrant emotions. But he knew that he was in daisy's house by colossal accident. Her glorious might be his future as jay gatsby who is at present a penniless young man without a past and at any moment the invisible cloak of his uniform by slip from his shoulders so he made the most of his time he took what he could get ravenously and unscrupulously eventually he took daisy one still october night took her because he had no real right to touch your hand might have despised himself for it certainly taking her under false pretenses. I don't mean that he had traded on his phantom millions but he had deliberately given daisy a sense of security. He led to believe that he was a person from much the same strategy as herself that he was fully able to take care of her as a matter of fact he had no such facilities. He had no comfortable family standing behind him and he was liable at the whim of an impersonal government to be blown anywhere about the world but he didn't despise himself and it didn't turn out as he had imagined he had intended probably to take what he could go but now he found that he had committed himself to the following of grill. He knew that daisy was extraordinary but he didn't realize just how extraordinary a nice girl could be. She vanished into her rich house into her rich. Full life leaving gatsby married to her. That was all when they met again. Two days later it was gatsby who's breathless. Who was somehow betrayed. Her porch was bright with the luxury of starshine. The wicker of the city squeaked fashionably as she turned towards him any kissed her curious unlovely mouth shade caught a cold and it made her voice husky. More charming than ever and gatsby was overwhelmingly aware of the youth in mystery that wealth imprisons and preserves the freshness of many clothes and of daisy gleaming lake silver safe and proud of the hot struggles of the poor.

But you've got something on now that walters afraid to tell me about. I glanced at daisy. Who was staring terrified between me and her husband and at jordan who had begun to balance an invisible but absorbing tip of her chin. Then i turn back to. Gatsby was startled. At his expression he looked and this said in all contempt for the babbled slander of his garden. As if he had killed a man remote at the set of his face could be described in. Just that fantastic way. It passed and he began to talk excitedly. Daisy denying everything defending his name against accusations. That had not been made but with every word. She was drawing further and further into herself so he gave that up. Only the dead dream fought on as the afternoon slipped away trying to touch. What was no longer tangible. Struggling unhappily undisputedly toward that lost voice across the room. The voice begged again to go. Please tom i can't stand this anymore. Her frightened is told whatever intentions whatever courage she had had were definitely gone. You to start on home. Daisy said tom in mister gatti's car. She looked at tom alarms now.

Expectantly have got your stables. Here asked gatsby with an effort about a quarter mile down the road. Oh pause i don't see. The idea of going town broke out. Tom savagely women get these notions in their heads. Shall we take anything to drink. Called daisy from an upper window. I'll get some answered. Tom he went inside. Gatsby turned to me rigidly.

Before it was full of money that was the inexhaustible charm that rose and fell in it the jingle of it the symbol song of it high in a white palace. the king's daughter the golden girl. Tom came out of the house wrapping court bottle in a towel followed by daisy jordan wearing small tight hats of metallic cloth carrying like capes over their arms. Shall we all go in. My car suggested gatsby. If the hot green leather of the seat. I have left it in the shade. Is it a standard shift demanded tom. Yes well you take my coupe and let me drive your car to town. The suggestion was distasteful to gatsby. I don't think there's much gas. He objected plenty of gas. Said tom boisterously. He looked the gauge. And if it runs out. I can stop at a drugstore. You can buy anything in a drugstore. Nowadays pause followed this apparently pointless remark. Daisy looked at tom. Frowning and an indefinable expression at once definitely unfamiliar and vaguely recognizable as if i had only heard it. Described in words passed over gatsby face. Come on daisy.

We'll follow you in the coupe. She walked close to gatsby touching his coat with her hand jordan. Tom and i got into the front seat of gatsby car. Tom pushed the unfamiliar gears. Tentatively and we shot off into the oppressive heat leaving them out of sight behind. Did you see that demanded. Tom see what he looked at me. Keenly realizing that jordan and i must have known all along. You think. i'm pretty dumb don't you. He suggested perhaps. I am. But i have a almost a second site. Sometimes that tells me what to do. Maybe you don't believe that. But science he paused. The immediate contingency overtook him. Pulled him back from the edge of the theoretical abyss. I've made a small investigation of this fellow he continued. I could have gone deeper. If i know you mean you've been to a medium inquire jordan humorously. What confused stared at us as we laughed a medium about gatsby about no. I haven't i said i'd been making small investigation of his past and you found. He was in oxford man said jordan pauley. An oxford man. He was incredulous like hell he is. He wears a pink suit. nevertheless he's an oxford man. Talks for new mexico. Snorted tom contemptuously. Or something like that..

I heard his voice gruff muffled husky at the hall telephone. Gatsby stood in the center of the crimson carpet. Engaged around with fascinated is daisy. Watched him laughed her sweet exciting laugh. A tiny gust of power rose from her bosom into the air. The rumor is whispered jordan. That's tom's girl on the telephone. We were silent. The voice in the hall rose. Hi with annoyance very well. Then i won't sell you the car at all. I'm under no obligations to you at all and as for your bothering me about it at lunchtime. I won't stand that at all holding down the receiver said daisy cynically. No he's not assured her. It's a bona fide deal. I happen to know about it. Tom flung open the door blocked out. Its space for a moment with thick body and hurried into the room mr gatsby. He put out his broad flat hand with well concealed dislike. I'm glad to see you sir. Nick make us a cold drink. Cry daisy the room again. She got up and went over to gatsby and put his face down kissing him on the mouth. You know i love you she murmured you forget. There's a lady present.

Then she remembered the heat and sat down guilty on the couch. Just as a freshly laundered nurse leading a little girl came into the room blessed precious. She crooned holding out her arms. Come to your own mother. That loves you. The child relinquished by the nurse rushed across the room and rooted shyly into her mother's dress. The blessed precious did mother get powder on your old yellow hair. Stand up now and say how do gatsby. An i in turn leaned small reluctant hand afterward. He kept looking at the child with surprise. I don't think he ever really believed in its existence before i got dressed before luncheon said the child turning eagerly to daisy. That's because your mother wanted to show you off her face bent into the single wrinkle of the small white neck. You dream you absolute little dream. Yes admitted the child calmly in jordan's got on a white dress to. How do you like mother's friends. Daisy turned her around so that she faced gatsby. Do you think pretty. where's daddy. She doesn't look like her father. Explain daisy she looks like me. She's got my hair and shape of the face. Daisy sat back upon the couch. The nurse took a step forward and held out her hand. Come pammy goodbye sweetheart. With a reluctant backward glance the well disciplined child held to her nurses hand and was pulled out the door just as tom came back. Preceding four jin. Ricky's that clicked full of ice. Gatsby took up his drink. They certainly look cool. He said with visible tension. We drank in long greedy swallows. I read somewhere that the sons getting hotter every year said tom genially. It seems that pretty soon the earth's going to fall into the sun or wait a minute. It's just the opposite. The sons getting colder every year. That come outside. He's adjusted to gatsby..

"After a moment i'd like to just get one of those pink clouds and put you in it and push you around. I tried to go then. But they wouldn't hear of it. Perhaps my presence made them feel more satisfactorily alone. I know what we'll do gatsby. We'll have clip springer play the piano. He went out of the room calling ewing and returned in a few minutes accompanied by an embarrassed slightly. Worn young man with shell rimmed glasses and scanty blond hair. He was now decently clothed in a sport shirt open at the neck. Sneakers and duck trousers of a nebulous. Hugh did we interrupt. Your exercises inquired daisy politely. Asleep cried mr clip springer in a spasm of embarrassment that is. I'd been asleep then. I got up clip springer plays a piano had got speed cutting off. Don't you old sport. i don't play well. i don't. i hardly play at all all out of practice. We'll go downstairs interrupted gatsby. He flipped a switch. The gray windows disappeared as the house. Glowed full of light in the music room. Gatsby turned on a solitary lamp beside the piano. He let daisy cigarette from trembling match and sat down with her on a couch far across the room where there was no light. Save with the gleaming floor bounced in from the hall. When clip springer had played the love nest. He turned around on the bench and searched unhappily for gatsby in the gloom. I'm all out of practice. You see. I told you. I couldn't play. I'm out of prac. Don't talk so much. Old sport commanded gatsby play in the morning in the evening. Ain't we got fun outside. The wind was loud and there was a faint flow of thunder along the sound.

It was the hour a profound human change and excitement was generating on the air. One thing sharon nothing sure the rich get richer and the poor. Get children in the meantime in between time as i went over to say goodbye. I saw that the expression of bewilderment had come back into gatsby space as they will. Faint doubt had occurred to him as to the quality of his present happiness. Almost five years there must have been moments even that afternoon when daisy tumbled short of his dreams not through her own fall but because of the colossal vitality of his illusion it had gone beyond her beyond everything he had thrown himself into it with the creative passion adding to it all the time decking it out with every bright feather that drifted his way. No amount of fire or freshness can challenge. What a man will store up in his ghostly. Heart as i watched him he adjusted himself. A little visibly his hand took hold of hers and as she said something low in his ear. He turned toward her with the rush of emotion. I think that voice held him most with its fluctuating feverish warmth. Because it couldn't be over dreamed. That voice was a deathly song..

I thought it was another party. A wild route that it resolved itself into hide and go seek or sardines in the box with all the house thrown open to the game. But there wasn't a sound only wind in the trees which blew the wires and made the lights go off and on again as if the house had winked into the darkness as my taxi grown away. I saw gatsby walking toward me across his lawn. Your place looks like the world's fair i said does it. He turned his eyes toward it. Absently i've been glancing into some of the rooms. Let's go to coney island old sport in my car. It's too late. Well suppose we take a plunge in the swimming pool. I haven't made use of it all summer. I've got to go to bed right.

There was a sharp line where my ragged lawn ended in the darker well-kept expanse of his began. I suspected that he meant migrants. Well there's another little thing. He said uncertainly and hesitated. Would you rather put it off for a few days i asked. Oh it isn't about that. At least you followed with a series of beginnings. I thought we look herald sport. You don't make much money do you. Not very much. This seemed to reassure him and he continued more confidently. I thought you didn't if you'll pardon my you see a carry on a little business on the side. Sort of sideline you understand. And i thought that if you don't make very much you're selling bonds. Aren't you sport trying to well. This would interest. You wouldn't take up much of your time and you might pick up a nice bit of money. It happens to be our other confidential. Sort of thing.

Inner your voice that men who had cared for her found difficult to forget a singing compulsion a whispered listen a promise that she had done gay exciting things just a while sense and there were gay exciting things hovering in the next hour. I told her how i had stopped off in chicago for a day on my way east. And how a dozen people had sent their love through me. Do they miss me. She cried aesthetically. The whole town is desolate. All the cars have the left rear wheel painted black as a morning wreath and there is a persistent whale all night along the north shore. How gorgeous. Let's go back tom tomorrow. Then she added irrelevantly. You ought to see the baby. I'd like to she's asleep. She's two years old. Haven't you ever seen her. Never well you ought to see her. She's tom buchanan.

She yawned and with a series of rapid deft movements stood up into the room. i'm stiff. She complained. I've been lying on that sofa for as long as i can remember. Don't look at me as he retorted. I've been trying to get you to new york all afternoon. No thanks said miss baker. The four cocktails just in from the pantry. I'm absolutely in training. Her host looked at her incredulously. You are. He took down his drink as if it were a drop in the bottom of the glass. How you ever got anything done is beyond me. I looked at miss baker and wondered what it was she got done. I enjoyed looking at her. She was a slender small breasted girl with an erect carriage which she accentuated by throwing your body backward at the shoulders like a young cadet. Her gray substrate is looked back at me with light reciprocal curiosity out of a one. Charming discontented face. It occurred to me now that i had seen her or a picture of her somewhere. Before you live in west egg. She remarked contemptuously. I know somebody there. I don't know a single. You must know gatsby. Gatsby demanded daisy gatsby.

"All it was a matter of chance that i should have rented a house in one of the strangest communities in north america. It was on that slender riotous island which extend itself due east of new york and where there are among other natural curiosities to unusual formations of land twenty miles from the city a pair of enormous eggs identical in contour and separated only by a courtesy. Bay jut out into the most domesticated body of salt water in the western hemisphere wet. Barnyard of long island sound. They're not perfect. Ovals like the egg and the columbus story. they're both crushed at the contact end but their physical resemblance must be a source of perpetual confusion to the goals that fly overhead to the wingless. More arresting phenomenon is their dissimilarity in every particular except their shape and size. I lived at west. The well the less fashionable of the two though this most superficial tag to express the bizarre and not a little sinister contrast between them my house was at the very tip of the egg only fifty yards from the sound and squeeze between two huge places that rented for twelve or fifteen thousand season. The one of my right was a close affair by any standard. It was a factual imitation of some hotel de normandie with a tower on one side. Spanking new under a thin beard of raw ivy and a marble swimming pool and more than forty acres of lawn and garden. It was gets mansion. Or rather as i didn't know mr gatsby was a mansion inhabited by gentlemen of that name. My own house was an eyesore but it was a small eyesore and it had been overlooked. So i had a view of the water a partial view of my neighbors lawn and the consoling proximity of millionaires. All for eighty dollars a month across the courtesy bay. The white palaces. A fashionable east egg littered along the water and the history of the summer really begins on the evening. I drove over there to have dinner with the tom. Buchanan's daisy was my second cousin once removed and at no time in college and just after the war i spent two days with them in chicago. Her husband along various physical accomplishments had been one of the most powerful ends that ever played football at newhaven. A national figure in a way one of those men who reached such an acute lymphoblastic. Excellence at twenty. One that everything. Afterwards savers of anti-climax. His family were enormously wealthy. Even in college. Freedom with money was a matter of reproach but now he'd left chicago and come east in a fashion. That rather took your breath away for instance he'd brought down a string of polo ponies from lake forest. It was hard to realize that a man in my own generation was wealthy enough to do that why they came east. I don't know. They had spent a year in france for no particular reason and then drifted here and there unrest flee wherever people played polo and rich together. This was a permanent move. Said daisy over the telephone. But i didn't believe it. I had no site into daisy's heart. But i felt that tom would drift on. Forever seeking a little wistfully for the dramatic turbulence of some irrecoverable football game. And so it happened that on a warm windy evening i drove over to east egg to see too old friends whom i scarcely knew at all. Their house was even more elaborate than i expected a cheerful red and white georgian colonial mansion overlooking the bay..

The artists figuring out how long to keep something in copyright there was nothing special about fifty six years. That's just a number that congress picked and then they decided to change it in nineteen seventy six just five years before the great gatsby entered the public domain. Five years before gatsby on ice congress changed copyright law. They said among other things fifty six years not quite long enough under the new stronger rules. Gatsby wouldn't go into the public domain until two thousand one and then just a few years before that congress jumped in again and made copies of old works last even longer under the new new rules. Gas would not go into the public domain until almost one hundred years after it was written until twenty twenty one but still sounds like some meat up year from the future to me. And you know congress could have kept pushing this date making the copyright longer and longer until the three thousand or something like that but there's been some pushback on the ever lengthening copyright period. Not enough pushback to start making the copyright shorter but enough to stop making them longer and so on january first of this year. Finally the great gatsby went into the public domain into our domain. It belongs to us now. It belongs to everybody. And what we now own i have to say is a complicated book. It has the romance and beauty of america. It also has the racism and misogyny and anti semitism of america and maybe the most american thing about the.

The artists figuring out how long to keep something in copyright there was nothing special about fifty six years. That's just a number that congress picked and then they decided to change it in nineteen seventy six just five years before the great gatsby entered the public domain. Five years before gatsby on ice congress changed copyright law. They said among other things fifty six years not quite long enough under the new stronger rules. Gatsby wouldn't go into the public domain until two thousand one and then just a few years before that congress jumped in again and made copies of old works last even longer under the new new rules. Gas would not go into the public domain until almost one hundred years after it was written until twenty twenty one but still sounds like some meat up year from the future to me. And you know congress could have kept pushing this date making the copyright longer and longer until the three thousand or something like that but there's been some pushback on the ever lengthening copyright period. Not enough pushback to start making the copyright shorter but enough to stop making them longer and so on january first of this year. Finally the great gatsby went into the public domain into our domain. It belongs to us now. It belongs to everybody. And what we now own i have to say is a complicated book. It has the romance and beauty of america. It also has the racism and misogyny and anti semitism of america and maybe the most american thing about the It's all about money. This is a book about why people want money and what they do when they get it and what money does to them. In other words. Gatsby is the perfect story for planet money and now that gets me is in the public domain. If we wanted to we could talk about it for a minute at the beginning of the show. Yeah say hello and welcome to planet money sticking ahead break in and then we could read the whole thing. We could read the entire book the entire book and posted on our podcast.
The Great Gatsby and All Your Favorite Works from 1925 Have Now Entered the Public Domain
"Public domain day when works from 1925 are now free fall to use and build on the most notable works from 1925 entering the public domain this year are the Great Gatsby in Virginia Woolf's Mrs Dalloway as well as works by Agatha Christie Instant Claire Lewis. There's plenty of music, too, with works by Irving Berlin, Duke Ellington and George and Ira Gershwin. Blues from W. C. Handy and Ma Rainey works from 1925 were supposed to go into the public domain in 2001 after being copyrighted for 75 years, but Congress extended their copyright Taunton 95 years. Which brings us to today, artists who want to create their interpretation of public domain works can do so without fear of a lawsuit, leaving a range of creative possibilities.

freeCodeCamp with Quincy Larson
"To make as well so let's first just talk about products surface area. Sure so free co camp is really three different core applications. There's the curriculum and. Portfolios? That's one of the pillars. And that is all custom code part. That's when we say the platform nationally what we're talking about we also have. A free co Camp Dot Org Slash News, which is our publication and published several articles today they're often in-depth explanatory journalism about technology. Then we have the free forum, and that's the third pillar of Free Co camp now. All three of those run on separate servers, the free cocaine forum is powered by discourse, which is a really cool self hosted open source form tool created by the founder of flow. Jeff Atwood in his. And that's very well maintained, and you can get your own discourse running really easily if you want to. You can just deploy to the cloud, and it'll live on its own server in docker container, and there you go. Same thing with free. Co Camp Dot org slash news that is running on ghost, which is another self hosted open source project that just released version three of their tool, and it's like wordpress, but it doesn't have a lot of the baggage that comes with wordpress. wordpress is excellent. But it does have some vulnerabilities in it does have. A very complicated plugin system in wordpress is trying to do a lot of things whereas ghost is just trying to be. A publication tool. So we have maybe. Seven thousand articles on. Free Co powder slash news at this point and we have. Hundreds of thousands of posts on free cochem dot org slash. So those are those who now if you want, I can drill into what powers the frequent camp platform the core curriculum. Please do yeah, so we are running. React on the front end. We're running known. As the back end were running a tool called loop. which is. An API tool. It essentially turns your rap into an API where all the routes. Can, confess chase on as well they shemale. It's something that's already baked into tools like ruby on rails like with ron rails. You take any euro. You could just put dot Jason at the end of it and get a Jason Representation of that of the data in that route so. Does a lot of that stuff. We ease Mogadishu for database and we have managed cluster. On 'em lab and we're working on moving that over to Mugabe's new atlas tool. Atlas. 'EM! Lab was acquired by Manga to be recently, so they're kind of sunsetting 'em lab. I think so. We're in the process of moving everything over. To have a big sharded system because we have a lot of data. We've got millions of records, and each of those records has these of challenge completions. And a whole lot of other data that they've added to their portfolio and the portfolios themselves were working on growing them, and making them a lot richer in terms of just having a lot more data like you can submit a whole different projects you've built from. Outside of the Free Co curriculum as well if you built your own. Jobs script game for example you could submit that and turn that into a kind of like a Lincoln light four developers, so we're working on that the platform itself in terms of the curriculum. Is. A gatsby APP and you hit that. Euro Free Co Camp Dot org slash learn and the entire curriculum loads. And it stays in your browser. It. Of Challenges, and then when you complete challenges, it will post those to the server, and if you disconnect from the server for some reason, you can keep completing challenges than when you reconnected a push that back up to free Co camp servers, so we're very close to having be fully offline. Functional APP like a progressive
"gatsby" Discussed on The Changelog
"To your needs like one of the coolest conversations I've had with a gets user is. It's like this little two person agency in the Netherlands and they started using gatsby with a really kind of rudimentary Cms they built for like political activists websites like a lot of like well political activism Campaign websites yeah just just kind of everything in that genre and they built this like cms. That's like super specific to that kind of like world. And then they built a gatsby theme that kind of encompasses you know the maybe five different faces or something that these different websites can go and he was just like almost like tackling on the website. Because he's like I can build a site in like minutes because he just like goes to nullify and tweak some environment variables in like points at an instance of the of the mess that he built. Voila Autho goes you. And it wasn't hard at all for him to build that because like you know because like when you split when Kinda like decouple all the different aspects of the traditional cms like all of a sudden like building the admin part in the workforce in there becomes a much more approachable task. Now because you're not worrying about how do we actually build the website? And how do we run it in deploying that that's because those are those are super complicated but like we can handle that and then is like plug in your data from whatever it is you can have like a kingery and explosion of of small focused? Sia messes because all you're building out is the workflows that are custom to that particular vertical and you can make it for them and you have to worry about the presentation layer like all that stuff make a gas be plug in source plug in and you can have a somber team even working on the actual website and all that. That's interesting possibilities. Yes I I see kind of a world where the average number of kind of content sources and a Gatsby site just keeps going up and up you know because like each team that's responsible for managing some part of the website. They can have something very specific to their particular ways of managing the data. So it's like you have a store locator page on the site and like there's a team that's maintaining that unlike updating information about location and like a new ones opening up and so they like new is opened and Geo tracking. Whatever I mean all all the information that they need can be lockdown. Some CMS instance and they don't have to have access anything else. They don't have to get distracted or weirded out by like one hundred other content types. You know the other people need for managing other types of the website and it can just be like super simple and straightforward To to kind of do their jobs and I think that's like really nice 'cause you know if you talk to anybody who works on websites it's not most people do not enjoy it and I think it's just. There's just a lot of sort of incidental complexity that comes from kind of mashing everything together in one system. That doesn't need to be that way. We're getting short on time. I want to ask you about Gatsby recipes before. Recall it a show. This is something speaking of launches man. You've been long you launch a couple of days ago. It seems like just just last Thursday. Yeah Passion Project or something. You're interested in. Tell us about Gatsby recipes. Yes so gatsby. Recipes is sort of like a new automation framework. That were adding to Gatsby. Basically it can kind of take a lot of routine task that you need to do with a website and you can pull those things into a recipe and recipe is like an MDX file. Which like maybe I blush. Sounds really weird. But it's like markdown and react components wanted to kind of fall. It does. Yeah we wanted to to follow a kind of like a literate programming style thing where you could like describe what you're doing. And then the steps he has tell story through it because we think that's really helpful for kind of like scaffolding kind of code because scaffoldings all about like. Why is the website the way it is? You know it's like it's like you chose different pieces for specific reasons and so if you can say like well this is the recipe that sets up the CMS and the components that like us the data from that cms. Then it's like you know you can look at a site like a site directory with like all these different files and convicting and whatever and then you could like pull out extracted into recipes that there's some sort of coherent story around that so you can be like here's my tools recipe in install some. Npr packages. You know. Add some dot files Maybe hooks up Cypress you know. Cyprus cloud Maybe like using story. Books can figures that and they're like hooks up to you know kind of like cod service running that anyway so it's just kind of combines all those things but it's not just like time this story but it's also it's like when you're starting a new project you can reuse these recipes and so you can just like okay for this project you know. We want wordpress. We want shopping by We need are kind of a normal kind of like developer setup like type script and and Cyprus and jazz and You know we're GONNA set up like circle. Ci WE'RE GONNA use gets cloud of course to kind of do the CD and then we're GONNA set up fastly for for hosting and like Azure I functions. I don't know you just like thrown together all these things and then you can have recipes for each of these. You know the start of the project instead of going to each one and like tediously configuring nat like cooking new and grabbing API tokens etc etc. You just like run the recipes and it was like in like your when it needs to know something they'll just like ask you information and then five minutes later you have a website. 'cause that sounds cool so. I'm reading through some of the code as you talk and even your selected recipe to run in the blog post which will be in the sun and says well and it looks almost like a docker file or like. It's like a ad that do this. It's own script is another word that maybe use scripting has more connotations. Maybe this is more declarative than scripted. Be Yeah Pretty Cool and so you run the recipe setup you can you can tweak it and then you can just click off new gatsby site. It takes a lot of inspiration from like infrastructure as code projects like tax reform is kind of a prominent example of that and You know a tools you know started developing ten fifteen years ago and the reason is because as developers started moving towards the cloud centric models like all of a sudden managing all your infrastructure. Got A lot more complicated. And so they developed like programmatic ways of mono of manning and evolving yeah that infrastructure. And so you know with websites moving to the cloud as well. The same problem is emerging. That's like wow. Three messes like a form handling. Api in like this and that and that and like functions and anyways it just gets a lot more difficult to scaffold out a new project and to kind of evolve at. You're like okay. We launched cool now. We need to do this new feature. It's like back to the the the the setup stuff and this is meant to kind of reduce Burden it's also another way. Kind of another perspective is kind of like the Monolithic to distributed cms and kind of the mainframe to P. C. It's like when you go from a monolithic modular architecture. You know the initial stages. There's just like a lot of energy that's unlocked because previously people who are kind of locked into the monolith frustrated by limitations all of a sudden this kind of sophisticated early adopters. All of a sudden they can start building out whatever they want. And there's just like super excited. It's like you know sort of thing. It's we can do this this and this and they're just like piecing things together and it's awesome and that's like the initial stages and that's like if you look at like kind of the homebrew computers in the late. Seventy like they are buying processors and you know. Why aren't things up and like there's all these people they're super excited about it but things don't go mainstream until you kinda like standardized stuff a bit and then you can like package together into sort of a consumer friendly thing because like you know the average user of these. Things isn't as excited about like helpings. Work under the hood. They just want something that you know. You press the button it turns on and it's you know generally speaking reliable and so forth right. Yeah so it's like hustle. Cms says headless wordpress headless Drubel. Water people are really excited about this. A ton of people over the last few years built a lot of things but if you look at the percentage of kind of their adoption in the marketplace. It's like single digit if of websites. You know it's a very very tiny so there's a lot of noise you know there's like it's like there's a lot of excitement and noise around it but the usage is much smaller than that so to ask the question of course is how do we mainstream this awesome. You know it is amazing. It's like once you get there and you're building the Gatsby site. It's incredible you know. You're super productive. The webster superfast really cheap and easy to run. That's awesome but it's like how do we? How do we get? You know lots and lots of people in that same world and and and to get that it's like it's packaging things up again. That people can just like cool like this is what I need to build a website know sort of like you know the famous five minute. Install for wordpress but for you know kind of this module world circle so gase recipes so this is part of the source project right is not the not cloud thing is right there in the Cli and available will now. Yeah and there's some recipes. Is there a place for sharing recipes? Because that's the next step then is a yeah to get a recipe out there yet. That's something that's very much remind right now. People are just like we have some official recipes that you can of get direct access to and then people are just like sharing them on guest or something like that but a kind of recipe hub. Like you're saying we think it'd be superfund. Our hope is that there's like tens of thousands of these recipes like anything you can imagine doing. You can just like search like find a recipe for that and you know. Oh cool and you can look at like five different variants. They set up this way. They set up this way this way. And then you can like remix it to kind of specific needs of your project and then like you know. Agencies companies can develop their own sort of set of recipes that they use to to run stuff very cool. Kyle well congratulations on finishing your long road to incremental builds relaxed. Now for a little while then. You have to get back to work. I'm sure as the.

"You can host your website on the edge on the cdn so from a user's perspective the website visitor types in their eurorail. It goes to the cdn where the website is already built and ready to be served and then comes back and you. You see the website in your browser. So that's a very simple explanation of what's going on there with gatsby but it makes it so that the site eight can scale. Because you're not having to go out and like the browser doesn't have to pull it from the server for example it's just kind of hosted on the edge ready to go prebuilt And it ends up being incredibly fast. One example is. I was just on a plane flight and you know wi fi on a plane is never really great quality. It's always going out super slow. And i was trying to access a couple of different websites that couldn't get an and i went to the gas be website at it loads right away. That was the only site i could get to load was gatsby website so that is also impactful because for people that may not have the latest cell phone smartphone may not have you know the the fastest internet connection may live in an area of the world that doesn't have the You know the super speed that maybe some of us get spoiled with that's meaningful to them. 'cause maybe the only sites that they can access easily are sites that are similar to gatsby or built with Gatsby type that is i mean. There's just so much the gatsby does just to help help. Help make this possible I was there's a blog post that was written. I think about a year ago.

"Dot com. And it's a large enterprise type side and we saw a big increase as far as the once. You're on the site and you you're talking about that pre fetching where the second page you go to. The third page ago to is feels so much faster. It's it's just the whole side just feels a lot faster than traditional site and gaspar. Does this Another thing with images to where the like a shadow of the image will load first and then of course the full like high resolution will load later but the reason. That's great is that you know we've all had the annoying experience where especially on your phone. You're trying to read something and an image at the top finally load. Maybe even like five seconds after on the page and bumps all the text down. That's really annoying and so with gatsby. The way gas treats images is great. Because it'll load that kind of placeholder for the image and it kind of looks like a shadow so there is some definition there you get the essence of the image but then the full hi rez detail can know a little bit later so it still has a really nice experience for that site visitor. Yeah playing with gatsby. Images has always been fun. So we'd mentioned mag mutual you mentioned mediocre dot com. What are some other notable brands that are using gets gatsby. Sure nike's using gatsby. So they have. They did their site. Just do it. I think it's nike dot. Just do it dot com and so they built that with with gatsby. That was the their campaign with colin kaepernick that they did last year and I believe they've done other gas beside since that time as well. So that's exciting to see We're doing a webinar. This week with a nonprofit company called starlight and although not a huge brand yet beggar really compelling story about how they're using content. Fold gatsby nullified together Which is a very Popular and powerful combination And so that they will be talking about how they set up their content modules. And how they're making it a lot easier for the marketer to go in create the pages that they need because that's kind of one one struggle or tension that sometimes happens between a marketing team and a development team is that The marketing team wants to be as self sufficient as possible. But you know usually you. You a marketer doesn't code like they're great at writing content that's what they're great news. It necessarily you know.

"One thing kyle talks about. Is that when he developed gatsby. He wanted to make doing the best thing. The easy thing so in other words you bill gates means such way that it makes it difficult to make a poor performing website. You'd have to work really hard to make a poor website with gats eke just because there's so much performance out of the box that comes with it Since we're kind of. I'm a marketer. And i will say right now gatsby If you're building with gatsby that's really a developer tool at right now Do you need to understand. You know basics of coding but we do have features for the marketer like preview for example because once you have your website built or you're updating pages or the website build is a process then of course the content creators marketers. Play a big role there in You know working out what the content is going to say and how the images should be laid out and that sort of thing so linda what would you say are the benefits that gatsby brings for large scale. Enterprise web teams and on the types of teams. What what's most attractive to marketers in the it managers folks that are responsible for the website. sure so for large scale websites. We actually have a couple of great case studies. We've done recently. One is with impossible. Foods they're gonna that hot new company that makes vegetarian hamburgers And they have a against the website so the things that i've heard larger enterprises enjoying about got speed is that you still get that blazing fast speed for your website. Nobody wants to go to a website and it takes five seconds to load a page. That's not a great experience for anybody. and especially for ecommerce sites. That will literally cost you money. So for every second it takes page load. You're going to lose more sales more revenue because people will bounce from the site So that's one of the main benefits. I hear from larger companies or companies like e commerce sites that are trying to make money on the web They have to have the optimize site. It needs to be fast It needs to be very interactive. So it's not just fast from the initial page load. But it's fast as you're navigating between pages because that's does what you could call pref- etching it kind of sees where the user is on the page at a pre loads the links Depending on where are in the page and what we anticipate the user will do next. So it's really becomes the seamless experience for the user that site visitor Which then of course market is really care about because we always have the customer or the user experience in mind we we just recently launched a project i'm gatsby magnet.

France fights back over U.S. tariff threat to champagne, cheese
"Before meeting with the president of France. He said the words that would have made the great gatsby. Gasp champagne tariffs if trump has his way.

Let's start with what else a glass of champagne. This isn't the first time trump's targeted European luxury goods back in October. He unveiled tariffs on Scotch Parmesan cheese and basically anything. That's already too expensive at whole foods that was in response to Europe illegally subsidizing European plane maker Airbus and hurting. US based Boeing in the process.

I mean I've heard you say on occasion is is that a fair as a statement to make absolutely yes. Yeah and and there's so much here Chris I don't want to jump too far ahead of myself but you know just going through your filmography and you know there's tons that I've mentioned but there's also work that you've had I haven't heard it interviews but you've I think you've contributor on like World War Z.. The Great Gatsby life of Pi. How does that work? Paul you just have a little bit of an influence. You do some work in that film and you're not like the leading editor. Hugs that work. Why why aren't you credited for the same way you weren't some of your other works right? Well h film is an individual case so but usually it's. It's a picture that the studio for whatever reason has some concerns about and They they say would you mind either looking at it and giving US notes and would you mind coming in for a few weeks or it's phrased you know differently but there comes a point where frequently that's On a picture even working for many months at the director and the editor and maybe even the studio executives the producers sort of what I call snow. Snow blind no not sure what they're looking at anymore because it's been working on it so long. They don't have objected to take on. What's there and any light to bring it? Excuse me like bring in what they called fresh eyes and sometimes just watching picture giving notes and sometimes sometimes it's actually sitting down and doing a version So that's how you know And then I find that Not taking credit is a way to make my suggestions more tolerable eligible that. I'm not trying to hog credit from someone yet. It makes sense to me. Yeah you know so that. The suggestions go down uneasily could easily because they're often as genuine efforts to help. I have a question down the road that steps on this topic. But I'll ask you now because it's just it's it's appropriate at this point. Do you find that studio executives as time goes by our. I don't WanNa say the word meddling because that's has a negative connotation to it but you find that their involvement is more were. The work should probably be left to those in the creative process. Director writer editor is is it. Is it more intrusive as time goes by Paul Well I'll say this that the most successful films that I've worked on. I've been the product of my collaboration with the director. Essentially just the two of us Making decisions incisions about the cat. Now that's well said and and you know I wanNA talk a little bit about your early life so you grew up in Paris. How many years were you in Paris for Paul? I was in Paris as a child for about four years. Now are you do you still can you. Are you fluent in French. Can you still speak it as something. You influence fluence. My accent is very good. I'm fluid to the degree washing. Sam Fluent I. I always impress french-speakers but equality. My accent hurry I hasten to tell them that might calculator is very small and and I don't have a real facility. Use it sound them. But I'm sure if I went over there and spent two or three Munson Johnson total immersion. I'd I'd get back to where I had been. You know when I was eight years old so I have the vocabulary of an eight year old child but you know I think I think if I stayed there pick it up you know. Yeah that's certainly flew in my book and then you were at your dad's a painter and I have to believe you get some of his his eye for things in art history major. You're the second art history major I've had and I think what two weeks which ages which is telling because I feel history major. Paul she was. She's a costume designer urine editor. I feel like history majoring in history. GIVES YOU LA. This supreme I for details. Is that kind of going overboard or do you think there's something to that. I really don't know One way or the other. I'm an art. I was an art history. Major not major distinction there right as she the average she she was also an art history major so it was like yeah she go ahead. I'm sorry but in my case as an art history major you spend a lot of times looking and yet projected images in dark rooms and critiquing them so I was sort of being prepared for a lifetime of work. Doing just that although I wound up doing moving images instead of still ones but I think my background is was useful in terms of developing an aesthetic about the elements of life of a style in visual arts. And there are many qualities that you you know you you try to achieve whether it's you know Symmetry your balance or a brace or certain a set of qualities that he strived for that are not necessarily only in visual arts. To 'cause I majored in music in high school I went to High School of Music and art and so my work in film. I find that very closely tied to my feelings about music for for me. Music is an essential elements of my work in terms of making presentations whether it's to the director to the public or whatever music than essential ingredient in what I'm doing yes well said you know. People that are listening to this. podcast cast many see editors and they think they know what it editor's job is but many times it's a teen involvement many times. You're working claburn as you mentioned with a director. How would you? What's your cliff notes? Version of what editor is for those listening in probably aren't sure exactly what it is. How would you define an editor's job? Well I can read to you from the introduction to my book which is essentially a chapter devoted to answering exactly that question but No I I have to say I have ordered on Amazon and I did read an excerpt I think it was on entertainment magazine. Entertainment Weekly Weekly. It was a really beautiful excerpt they printed and people said some really nice things anymore. Campbell talkie movies are made in the editing room and so much of your book I want to get into. It's really an amazing. It's an amazing story. Your life is there's been so much to it you are our consensually. What the editor is doing is putting together? The experience that the audience is GonNa have and everything that's done on a film the writers the actors cinematographers the production designers. The costume designers the makeup people. Here people everything the all their work is Toward one end an s to provide the editor with raw materials. Everything they do do is in service of the cut and the editor takes everything that they have done and uses it to bill. It'll be experienced the audiences. Yeah and do you find as you because you've been so effective for so long. I mean that's a testament to your abilities. Do you find that much of your. Your work is is is with the directors. You find that a lot of it is I know George had faith in you clearly Brian has yes. I had faith you clearly. Do you find that typical or is it. Not Typical of of the job varies as much as human beings very Taylor. Is there ever a time. Where director says you know what I completely trust? You have at it and and do what you have to do or as a director always kind of in some way have to monitor the process like I said everyone's different Are Comfortable having having any drive in some of the likely take the real themselves you know so it varies from person to
Memory foam, orthopedic beds for pets are a thing now
"Pinch decent, David Guinness. Here's the CEO and founder of tweeted dog, welcome. Thank you for having me on very nice to have you. And first of all your company's called tweeted, and everyone that's listening all the pet parents friends like pets thinking about pets. This is for your pet. It's not for you. But I would like a long one for me. I've likened people. But before we get into what we're talking about his, hey, a little cliffhangers always got even if it's only for like five minutes, or so let's talk about I love the sense of humor. Your company has okay. Your company's called treated dog. Most of your products are memory foam, beds and car cover, and I might as missing anything. No. I would say, you know, we we have quite a few lines. But our flagship and the lines we take the most pride in are definitely going to have to be our memory foam, Arthur beds, and our travel collection. Yeah. That's correct. Okay. So before we talk about your pod up. We were talking about I mentioned the sense of humor your company has. So I've had many many many men in companies on best bets for pets. And I'm always interested when they say about us thinking, you know, because it's radio and not everybody not all of our guests. Our actual studio. Now, he's. Wonder so what do they look like so on you said you have an about us page, but there's all dogs. So I'm thinking. It's the crew, you know, which one is David's dogs, which one is somebody else on the crew. See I'm Gatsby Zoe Gus Mike an ala right, right? So that is similar to your crew over there. Okay. So they're all your testers. Yeah. So these are our dog that coming go there, some employees some of our product distributors. So they all have their own purpose here treated offense. So I thought I'd make them a little section for the website because they're very important that you know, they help us with all our products. Definitely I liked the title like L A does I think graphic design? So. That would be Mikey, Mikey. Okay. Mike. He is actually one of our graphic designers. But we decided to give him the name of the dog Russ that comes through here and hangs out. So so that is my care graphic designer portrayed by Ross. Okay. Got it. Yeah. But that's a good. You know, anytime a company has a good sense, a gamer, and what talking pats, you know, have. Pat's now. Okay. I agree. Everyone loves at its light hearted. And and we try to keep that kind of feeling here in the office. Okay. Now, you companies called treaty dog. Where did you come up with that name? No most people they hear that. They think oh it's about treats and all that kind of stuff, but you actually have these wonderful memory foam beds that totally pampers and your pooch loves them. And on my crew the cats too. So where did you come up with? Treat a dog came kind of in a brainstorming session when we started the company about five years ago, one of my business partners. You know, we are thinking how could we say something about giving dogs everything they need? And the first thing that came to her head was treated dog. You know, you wanna treat a dog with love you wanna treat it with respect you on a treat it with care. So it's kind of an all encompassing. Name not only talks about treats. Which is another thing. I really love. But we just liked the name that it kind of fully embodies how you should take care of your dog. And it's up to you how you treat it. So that's how on a treat a dog was born. I love the name, and you touched on some really important things. And when you think about tweeting your dog, and let's talk about your products, yet memory foam, beds are not match. I think of memory foam, I think of mattresses these are like kind of dot com. Way. Yeah. Yeah. They are. So just as human mattresses as you mentioned, they're the same grades, same quality. But they obviously had seen designed specifically for your dog. So the memory foam line that we carry as I mentioned, we're very proud of it. And I'd have to say it's most flagship of aligned that we we have we create our beds to be really durable to really fit nicely into your decor. But most importantly to be very comfortable. We think all dogs should have this really nice comfortable bed. So that's kind of what we look towards one. We create any new bed at a
"gatsby" Discussed on The React Podcast
"So we pull the product data down and build the site, and it's got products, but then the cart, interactions, and the user education that's all handled dynamically at Runtime. So to do that in something like Hugo, you definitely can. But you you're then responsible for building the react app. Injecting that react up into the Hugo templates, and then kind of managing it that way. Whereas with Gatsby the react app is the static site generator. And so that's the primary difference. And it's also one of the reasons that you. Might not need it. If you're just building static sites, and you don't need any of that that dynamism or or just you're not a reactive Ella per like, you may not need it like sometimes it is overkill, but you know, the benefits that you're gonna get are we really focused on keeping that dynamism there. We really focus on performance, and we focus on giving you a really really friendly developer experience. So for Java scrip- developers as far as it in. My obviously biased opinion, the the developer experience. For a Java script developer using Gatsby is going to be superior to any of the other any other statics generators out there. Because either they're not written in Java script or they're they're designed more from lake. Do it yourself perspective. And they're definitely they're exceptions to that. Like react static is really really good. Don't get me wrong. You know, it just when you hit the edges when you hit the edge cases, you hit him pretty hard that that makes sense. I'd never heard it put. Like that. But basically, you can think about this static site as a dynamic site from the beginning like from the very first line of code that. You're right. Exactly. That's awesome. So tell me what are the core technologies that that you interact with when you're building against site. So the the core technologies are going to be react and graph y'all. And then you're you're CSS library of choice. What what you'll never have to think about which is what I think makes gets be wonderful is you don't ever have to set up your Bill process. So things like web pack end. So your web pack set up. Your babble set up your your build process. That's all abstracted away inside a Gatsby for advanced developers. We have escape hatches where you can get to those configuration files and change them. But for for most people, it's not something you need to do you typically won't ever have a reason to go in there and less you're doing something really special. So when you when you make those those changes, you're going to open up a editor like you're gonna use the Gatsby CLI to generate a new site opened up the index page, and edit it, and it'll live update on the internet or on your browser instantly. Like no setup step whatsoever. And yeah, so reacting graph all are going to be your your primary, building blocks. Now had mentioned that the Gatsby store is powered by by Gatsby, and then the checkout the cart process is all namic is that site open source, or do you have an example of how someone might be able to do that? Yeah. The the whole store is open source, and we have a couple examples in our our core repo and the Gatsby repo on get hub. There's an examples folder that has like a simple off example and a dynamic routes examples. So that you can you can see reduced examples how to make that stuff work. But yeah, the the store is probably the canonical example right now of building a really dynamic app. Yeah. This is this is one thing that I'm super excited about just seeing this space of or you have an app that is fully built down into Sadeq assets. But is capable of doing anything that you would do? Do on like a regular database driven the traditional kind of rails or node site. Yeah. This is this is something that like I feel like this is going to be the hill that I die on is that there's there is no such thing as a web app that couldn't be static asset because what I've been finding is that every single website is like itchy Mon CSS and a little bit of Java script that is built from data. And that data is either going to come in through the server. That's also serving your HD mound. CSS Java script or it's going to come from an API. And functionally those are equivalent, it's just an organisational thing..
Hannah Gadsby's Nanette adds pathos to comedy
"Say very quickly. If you haven't seen Hannah Gatsby a net, Annette flex, go watch it. Go check it out on admit, I put it on a week or so ago, watch the first five or ten minutes and then got caught up with work and wasn't feeling particularly compelled to come back to it just based on that opening. But then I kept reading. People were saying, including our own writers wired, you have to go watch this. You have to watch the so I finished it and to call it a comedy special is a little bit of a mischaracterization because it's not entirely comedy. It really has this amazing nuance and depth to it, and it really reaches this very emotional crescendo where. Gadsby really reveals a lot about some of the traumas it for past and speak openly about some of the basically like socio sort of political issues that we're all dealing with today and social issues really. And and it's just a, it's a, it's a heavy watch, but it's it's good. You should watch it. That's my watch comedians in cars, getting coffee, Jerry Seinfeld thing. I've seen a couple. I don't watch it regularly. There's an episode from this recent season where he, he's talking about young comics and young comment audiences. They want that peso's they want in in their comedy special. They want that sock in the gut, and he's like, but when you play the people who are like thirty five and older and they've got kids and you've got mortgages and they're on their second marriage, they're like, you know what? I'm fine the pay. Those just make me laugh. Yeah, I think it's it depends on what mood urine. Like if you might feel like watching Michelle wolf one night and then another night you're going to watch Ninette and it's going to be a totally different experience. But I actually think it's really wonderful that this comedy genre, especially this one hour special is being redefined in some
