"San Antonio you call it what you want to call is San Antonio. I think San Antonio has a. Charm to it Charley pride, you know. Is anybody going to San antone now probably didn't need an extra syllable in in the tune right there? Speaking of which state Republicans have flipped a dark. Blue Senate district read Texas Senate district nineteen has had a has been represented by Democrats. Since eighteen seventy nine. It encompasses parts of San antone, south and west sides, including parts of Medina county. So it's bear county and Medina county. Heavily Hispanic areas. Now to put this into perspective, the Castro brothers are from the west side. Former mayor Henry Cisneros came from this area. The districts are so blue that in the last gubernatorial election where Wendy Davis lost by over twenty percentage points. She won that senatorial district. That's how Blewett it is. Hillary Clinton won that senatorial district by twenty one points. Well. Senate district nineteen was long the domain of a fellow named Carlos Uresti. And he was convicted on eleven felony charges. So they held a special election and the top two contenders were gay eggos, who's a longtime democrat machine politician kinda got an up and coming fellow named Pete Florus. So the question was which Pete would Senate district nine nineteen elect the Republican Florez or the democrat Gaydos Pete floor as one wasn't even that close Fifty-three forty-seven. He becomes the twenty-first Republican Senator in the state house, giving the Republicans a super majority. He's the first Hispanic Republican Senator in the state of Texas. How did he win his campaign got their voters to show up vote blocking intact? Glenn? Blocking and tackling. That's not to say, it's not Jimmy's in Joe's. It's all Xs and os. But there is a lot of Xs and os. I've said this before the roar of a crowd gives a team the home field advantage in football. You see that the roar of a crowd can can.

"Yeah, yeah. And the thing is that they start to have enough people who know what they're doing in them. Yeah, that you can share knowledge. They're great communities around react, great communities around the great communities around few. So it's no longer the tire wild west and you're not just a loan out there. Yeah, in so yeah, the thing that could disrupt these platforms right now is web of, right? That's the only thing I see. Oh yeah, it's it's almost a reboot. What's your take on a semi? Like, what are you? What are you thinking about it? I'm just wildly impressed, but it achieved distance. I don't know. I what I know is that for for example, is a huge investment of all these people I can see sharp and stuff like that. Right. Yeah, they'll all this great stuff. All great that the PF stuff and to be locked out to be frozen out of the browser is currently are. FIS horrible. It's either. In suddenly somebody comes along and says, we'll guess what. If we get this web subway in gone, everything you've ever written will just run the like you said, that sounds pretty mythical. Actually, it's not gonna crazy. Talk is crazy and you know what? Yeah, you know what? Got Sanders flying this thing. Isel, will they got some crate, I suppose, crazy demo today running firefly's inside of chrome inside the somebody's You gotta gotta be be. kidding me. It reminds me of a when Glenn block said, Java scrip- for real news even run something of the servant, I him. Yeah, go pound sand. He's absolutely this in medical we do. He's still not. Yes, yes. Let's let's all be very clear here betting against Steve Sanderson is very unwise demand has a string of hits that is hard to argue with. Yep. And the fact that Miguel de Kasza decided that what Steve was doing was a good idea import some of his resources into it. That's, you know, that's ABC's seriously. Big guns in the thing is it's not just Microsoft and things known as killer. Now, the Golan guys are doing it like we're right web assembly is a place to put languages inside of the browser. And that's really interesting. Microsoft is like, I, we then everybody's egged zag. I think it's just fair. It's very important technology to watch. Yeah, somebody's got to build something. It's never going to get more important if it's not built and certainly, you know right now when you look at brelzer point. Oh five. The only thing I see that makes total sense to me is like validation code literally the same class library running in the browser and on the back end. But the UI stuff is nothing yet. You're still you're still essentially thinking JavaScript or thinking HTML when you're when you're thinking about renderings, but you is like the last thing to get done, right. Usually, let's see what they do. I remember when Mona was working on their stuff like the windows forms, libraries where sort of like the the least important to them, then they need to get the plumbing done before anything like that could be. Yeah. Well, here's, here's another key difference though. Has great interest store. Right, terrific. It our story that none of these other platforms that we're talking about that. Right, right. So it's not silver light where you have to write Zampbell. Yeah, it's not civilized which had to be a plug in all the browsers could kick out..

"To win and we also like to ask our guests glenn of course you know this drill if you've got five thousand dollars and you're going shopping what are you going to buy yes so i i thought about this one so i have been very deep into virtual reality as my side thing i didn't mention that in my but i are vr geek and i had to buy the oculus rift when it first came out when i just want the oculus go oh yeah a little one which is actually way better than you know no it's not as rich of an experience of the oculus rift but for what you're at yet it's pretty amazing and everybody was like oh i can do that with my phone but the whole beauty of it is like you don't need a phone like the fact that rightfully and you just plug it in and it works and it's it's quite good and it's inexpensive compared to the regular oculus to two hundred bucks i spent yeah you know because i couldn't wait i had to buy a computer and everything i mean i spent like twenty six hundred dollars to earn my oculus rift at a new windows ten gaming had to get like a gaming machine because the requirements for the for the right now again it's not exactly the same experience level of emergence not the same anyway they're coming out with a new oculus rift that is completely wireless so it's kind of going the direction of go but it is a full on rift still tethered or computer wireless i believe that's what it is i believe it's wireless i don't know if it has a computer built in doing what the hollow lenses if it is it's probably going to be a lot more money i mean the problem when when you do that as you get these crazy constraints just so expensive to get computer dot com pac exactly but if you can have the wireless experience but still have horsepower behind you so much the better exactly so the code name for this thing is santa cruz okay no how expensive it's going to be but i imagine what first comes out it's going to be pretty pricey because of what it is so i would probably say i would get that and get a hololens because hey if i'm from going with just put it all into my vr investment if i have any money left over i'll get like one of those like chairs that has the mike's i've seen they have like these racing chairs that are actually have hydraulics i recently went to the new renovated museum at microsoft campus i don't know if you've been there but they completely renovated and they have one of these hydraulic seats for car racing so i think between the three of those i probably give pretty close to five thousand you can blow five grand on a good motion chair by itself like good chairs or expensive is it like ready player one kind of chair yeah that's right yeah you're sort of haptic feedback immersion if affect chairs yeah you can burn a lot of cash although i mean it's omni tread is supposed to be the thing you use with your vr glasses where you're basically standing up in ring i haven't heard too much about that from actual users though is that the one that lets you walk like in any direction is that like really like the ready player one thing yeah that's the omni tread and what is that thing cost those only about fifteen hundred bucks wow five grand you could pretty much build out that immersive rig but yeah the problem is that the chairs the just get so complicated with all the hydraulics and things boom you money's gone will let swap it for that for what you just described that sounds better that sounds better virtual immersed emerging experience we hope we give some people some ideas if they actually do win when you love to build out an avia rake for someone if they went into semper that would be so awesome that we really cool 'cause that's the kind of stuff he can't spend money on yeah of your of your own pocket 'cause reduce spousal acceptance factor is you know but if you win it that's a different story yep funny i just had this conversation with a marketing group and they were saying well we want to give away gift cards you're ready give away next box like why says people will take three hundred dollar xbox over a five hundred dollar gift card.

"To win and we also like to ask our guests glenn of course you know this drill if you've got five thousand dollars and you're going shopping what are you going to buy yes so i i thought about this one so i have been very deep into virtual reality as my side thing i didn't mention that in my but i are vr geek and i had to buy the oculus rift when it first came out when i just want the oculus go oh yeah a little one which is actually way better than you know no it's not as rich of an experience of the oculus rift but for what you're at yet it's pretty amazing and everybody was like oh i can do that with my phone but the whole beauty of it is like you don't need a phone like the fact that rightfully and you just plug it in and it works and it's it's quite good and it's inexpensive compared to the regular oculus to two hundred bucks i spent yeah you know because i couldn't wait i had to buy a computer and everything i mean i spent like twenty six hundred dollars to earn my oculus rift at a new windows ten gaming had to get like a gaming machine because the requirements for the for the right now again it's not exactly the same experience level of emergence not the same anyway they're coming out with a new oculus rift that is completely wireless so it's kind of going the direction of go but it is a full on rift still tethered or computer wireless i believe that's what it is i believe it's wireless i don't know if it has a computer built in doing what the hollow lenses if it is it's probably going to be a lot more money i mean the problem when when you do that as you get these crazy constraints just so expensive to get computer dot com pac exactly but if you can have the wireless experience but still have horsepower behind you so much the better exactly so the code name for this thing is santa cruz okay no how expensive it's going to be but i imagine what first comes out it's going to be pretty pricey because of what it is so i would probably say i would get that and get a hololens because hey if i'm from going with just put it all into my vr investment if i have any money left over i'll get like one of those like chairs that has the mike's i've seen they have like these racing chairs that are actually have hydraulics i recently went to the new renovated museum at microsoft campus i don't know if you've been there but they completely renovated and they have one of these hydraulic seats for car racing so i think between the three of those i probably give pretty close to five thousand you can blow five grand on a good motion chair by itself like good chairs or expensive is it like ready player one kind of chair yeah that's right yeah you're sort of haptic feedback immersion if affect chairs yeah you can burn a lot of cash although i mean it's omni tread is supposed to be the thing you use with your vr glasses where you're basically standing up in ring i haven't heard too much about that from actual users though is that the one that lets you walk like in any direction is that like really like the ready player one thing yeah that's the omni tread and what is that thing cost those only about fifteen hundred bucks wow five grand you could pretty much build out that immersive rig but yeah the problem is that the chairs the just get so complicated with all the hydraulics and things boom you money's gone will let swap it for that for what you just described that sounds better that sounds better virtual immersed emerging experience we hope we give some people some ideas if they actually do win when you love to build out an avia rake for someone if they went into semper that would be so awesome that we really cool 'cause that's the kind of stuff he can't spend money on yeah of your of your own pocket 'cause reduce spousal acceptance factor is you know but if you win it that's a different story yep funny i just had this conversation with a marketing group and they were saying well we want to give away gift cards you're ready give away next box like why says people will take three hundred dollar xbox over a five hundred dollar gift card.

twenty six hundred dollars five thousand dollars three hundred dollar five hundred dollar
