"That were written by soldiers to flight attendants on their flight somewhere written on whatever scrap paper might be on hand. Sometimes, it's the tray liner from their meal tray. Sometimes, it's the BARF Bag Pan Am's annual report from nineteen sixty seven included clippings of letters. Servicemen have written about their Arnuhar's one letter signed by quote, an extremely Happy Group of Gi's said you the stewardesses aboard are not required to give of yourself by working in the doors. Performing a task, your own volition, perhaps satisfy your services, your smiles in your quick to please attitudes. Meaningful to us but there's another thing that struck Scott in the research he did for his exhibit as I started to reach out to other aviation history institutions and. Military History Archives, and other kinds of museums and stuff like that. I realized how little of this material had been collected? The Pan Am stewardesses weren't quite military but they weren't quite civilians. They technically didn't serve but they definitely did serve. In nineteen seventy-three, the last American combat troops withdrew from Vietnam. penam had been gradually phasing out its on our flights but in the last year of the war, the airline was called in to help out one more time. Thousands of south. Vietnamese children have been orphaned by the war and the US government had launched operation baby lift a mission to transport some of them to the. Where they'd wait for adoption. Save Five Air Force cargo plane carrying the first flight that left was a military plane with almost two hundred and fifty kids on board from the government ordered air lift crashed in a rice patty near Saigon just minutes after takeoff there been an issue with a cargo door. But for all anyone knew at the time, the plane had been shot down almost half the passengers died many of them children that day a Pan Am crew. Was told you're flying in tomorrow. One of the people aboard was Karen. Walker Ryan the stewardess who was asked to check her playing for sniper fire. We had seen the day four on the news in the hotel picture of that smoking big airplane and there it was on the runway we taxied right by it. Again, Karen had no special training no fancy equipment. So we got all these bottles ready just hundreds of bottles of milk. And we had all these cardboard bassinet shots that were covered in Pam blew over four hundred babies and children were loaded onto. Karen's plane squeezed into bassinet under each seat strapped two or three to a seat belt. I'm being handed all these babies one after another. Go down the aisle, fight a place to put them. Everyone's screaming. It's hot. All these babies are crying. Once. We got the engines going and got that plane. Cool down. I think out of just sheer exhaustion. So many of these babies fell asleep. Then it was kind of frantic going around and finding the babies that needed to go up to the doctors in First Class. Everyone was on the hunt looking for babies has a look as he breathing I. Really put your face down real close make sure you get a breath. Karen didn't get any advance preparation or special payment for her work on the baby left. She didn't get a medal for her service that day or for any of the on our flight chief Lou. In fact, as far as anyone knows none of the Pan Am, stewardesses got any formal recognition for the danger they put themselves in and that danger didn't just when the are flights did a lot of those guys did come straight out of the field and they were dusted with all kinds of toxins and there was some issues that I know Pan Am flight attendants address. Later saying we were exposed to Agent Orange we should be getting the same va benefits. Are Gi's Scott but we never got that I spoke to one Pan Am stewardess named Gail Larsen. She was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease seven years ago and she believes Agent Orange Exposure on the Arnuhar's could have contributed she wrote a letter to her senators about it saying that the military acknowledges Agent Orange Can Cause Parkinson's I've read it on their websites particularly for the administration and I just wanted to call that to our attention that maybe some of the flight attendants as well had a contract at some of these health issues because of their work flying in and out of Vietnam the letter ends quote. If. There's help available in the form of medical or financial assistance for former Panam flight attendants who were part of the Vietnam War experience. I would appreciate information on how to go about getting it. I'm a single woman with no children have a limited income and will need more care and the not. So distant future that I could not afford. She says she never a reply. Some of the pilots on these flights received combat pay for flying into a war zone. Some got certificates of recognition and appreciation from the US military the flight attendants did not. And it's not just formal recognition that's missing. In fact, most people don't know them for anything beyond the gourmet meals and swanky uniforms. Here's Helen Davey. We used to feel quite insulted at the way people would think of us because. They just wanted to hear juicy little stories about what happens between the stewardesses and men. And Oh my goodness. It was so much more than that award those Pan Am planes. Helen, learn that she had a knack for connecting to people for listening to them seeing soldiers on hospital beds watching them jolt up when she woke them from a nap, she was face to face with raw human emotion. It was like nothing I had ever seen these were the faces of trauma and I I could just feel it. It was thick in the air. I just wanted to help the Mall Helen became Dr. Davy she studied psychoanalysis and started a career as a therapist with a focus on suffering grief and loss I learned more about people on airplanes than I have ever learned in school. It was the best education in the world. In the years after Vietnam many of the stewardesses kept flying for Pan Am. But the world was changing a Pan Am and other airlines stewardesses challenged pregnancy and marriage bands and weight limits block stewardesses pushed for more inclusive hairstyles. So they could wear afros and braids male stewards fought to be hired even the name of the job itself stewardess was changed to flight attendant. And life moved on. We'll all these other hugely important changes were being made. The aren't flights faded into history. The women who flew them didn't get credit.

The coherence I think was if this is my point in in just swap alie noting something and gave me a great deal of pleasure and relief to George so when I went back and looked at some of the early stuff some of it was no what was embarrassing about it was usually content yard just sort of sloppy things that are wouldn't interested anybody else but gradually gradually it seemed to become more thoughtful and kind of fruitful to me. When you you decided that you publish these exerts from the Dr is did you let yourself tweet or or improve a word or punctuation the queen of punctuation even in a hasty Dari would do actuation terribly? Unhappy all stop and but but that was what what I learnt from Artesia. Mrs Dunkley who I've written about in the past. She had taught me the joy over of getting it right because when you get something writes in technically this kind of chunky feeling where everything stable and this means an enormous amount to me and it's in a sense Stats the Dari is what Malcolm gled- will would call my ten thousand hours. He's Audie that people that are good at something. You don't get to be good at something unless you've done ten thousand dollars over and it also makes sense that you wouldn't do it sloppily.

I thought when I first started choosing ward putting the book or you know discarding what I wouldn't put it in. The book are thought okay. I'm going to have have to ask people about this. I thought wall not gonNA ask him now. All ask lighter all work on this text just as if it weren't going to be become public I'll just try to make it into something that I am happy with and because I think this is what I noticed this now. There's a tremendous fear anxiety about what you're allowed to say. And I hate and fear that and I'm prepared to two fighters and that doesn't mean I don't care about the effect of water rush rush on other people but means that I I don't want to censor myself at the beginning. Sometimes I've taught little courses courses taken a so-called masterclass and our member one particular one a couple of years ago where there were about ten or twelve people in the room and each one of them had a fantastic idea for for what they wanted to write but as they went on I realized how they they were terrified of something and I couldn't work out what it was. I mean. There's obviously what Somebody Hillary mental novel 'cause proper fear which is the fee that you must feel before any peace lisa creative work because it shows that you've got a healthy relationship to what's difficult about it but these people they keep saying who's permission to our have ticket kit before I do this research or Who who what do I have to get people to sign? I don't believe it. I didn't know what they were talking about. And I think this coming out of universities this whole ethics committee sort of deal which draws me screaming round the twist. Can't stand it and and I say what it does to people. It makes a fried to white into the territory the longing to white into and and are numbered by the end of the day. I just wanted to heart on them. You know I wanted to say look. No one's GONNA come into the room behind you and tight and run out and publish the book at advocating. When you starting at get in there and Bligh's away then later worry about it then think okay? Who will this hurt? Is it all right for me. He decide this had. Why feel about this person? Do I want to ask this person's permission but get the thing written. I an affiliated with great vehemence. Ah Really worries me that people sort of become so kinda pussyfooting around anyway. I had this thing that was about to become a book. They are thought. Okay we'll have to conceal everybody's identity that same decent thing today so our headquarters thought with this wonderful idea. I'd give each person what I thought over certain the high near ICK epithets we and I thought are really thought they were going to work is really dumb but I greatly enjoyed enjoyed it. I loved giving names to people. Early headed headed one or or a married man or The born again or the Laura student and I saw you buy shirt you know when it was all done in our practice ridiculous things are still thinking that it was sort of cool because I was trying to make the whole thing kind of float in our didn't want it to be way down by people going all that must be so and so you know I just wanted the thing to float float on and I figured that the more floated the more other people would seat himself. I mean strangers who reading it would feel that it had something. Go with them. Because it wasn't about me it was about the world and it was about how people what sorts of people there are in the world and how they relate to each other and and one thing on our fisheries that are not unique and my experiences and not unique and what I was hope for is that other people will read my stuff and go kart. That could be me. And so so here on wars with my manuscript bristling with these high America Foods and my editor whose name Miss Join Peace. And she's a person of great delicacy and skill. She said Look Helen. I'm not so sure about the America. Befits okay what one was always out right and she said no really.

Don't you give them initials bug that it's awful. I hate that and then I went away and and thought about it and I thought no. It's actually really good idea. And I thought of other books that I knew that had initials thought I'll give everybody an initial just won and weren't put a full stop after diva daringly thought so but then when it comes to the homeric some of them are loved so much and they seem to be doing so much work as phrases so some people have gotten initial and America fish or some have. Just go home Eric. With if it like the born again or the born agains brother. I just thought that the phrase the born again is doing such an enormous amount of work an on one person. I asked listener in my diary. I hope it's okay this just one little scene near that Joran and I said I'm giving you an initial Ange uncivil initial. If you give him an I said Oh and she said No. You can't call me. Oh don't call me. I want to know circumstances what she said.

She offered by the end of she was there for one semester and then she went back to style it today with her dad who who just had a baby with with you sick and wife and she was very keen to be involved in that so why she went. But Yeah but obviously 'cause I always used to living Lena's big households and being surrounded by swarms of people walking in and out the whole time and their award in this flooding parison. I mean I was sharing with a friend always very fond of but he was gay and he was out cruising. You know who I mean. It was really quite wild back then. It's always lonely in our trying to write and always making a mess of it and more I. There was no good and I knew it was good because when I started to more publishes when they came through Paris they said this is no good so it wasn't the happiest time you came back to Melbourne. How did MOONEY ponds? Compared to life in Paris well kick to Melbourne and it seemed to me.

So it's even it's sort of you know even doubled down on that and what's even more kind of crazy out. There is that many of these ingredients start as whole plants so most concurs made within hours literally like six hours every bottle of Octopus Tentacle Serum Takes Twenty one days to make every bottle of active treatment. Essence takes thirty five days to make. It's truly like wine honey. Ah Well but so again so I'm trying to go find a lab right to get me to make my products and I'm thinking. Oh my gosh coming again.

Meaning wine country just south of now. I was just on a tour in Napa as I mentioned and I learned so much about wine. And how NAPA specifically of a bottle says it's from from NAPA. It's most likely more expensive. Because of the real estate and Napa and and he explain how that I'll have.

mean think about it a bit but great yeah oh man let's talk about our home ebert because that's that's a you know he's not holding back ebert wrote elements of the plot may not hold up in clear in the clear light but that didn't bother me much what i liked was a horror movie that was scaring me with ideas and gore instead of simply with core bad so it's okay they did good kevin thomas from the LA times though he called it clive barker's worst to date and he says it quickly becomes as repellent as it is preposterous but let's league can't slander this man say honestly he could just be a racist

all right well we got james and the giant peach peach somebody knows they look son that you did you see the number does that silence of the lamb was doing put a bug on a white face don't don't do nothing else put a bug on face 'cause that's what we gotta do basically the plot of candyman has helen lyle who's a graduate student this is very much the same as the short story whose researching urban legends and hear about the local story of candyman the legend came claimed that candyman can be summoned by his name five times while face emir whereupon he will kill the summoner with a hook

were scattered across the area work cabrini breed now states take it was like first off take yeah then then there's like all right we cut off his hand what can you not well i got it honey bro and you know what i know bees like honey going to stay stay to death and we don't earn his corpse and then we just sprinklers at like well he did putting this wheel is ashes we know you got to respect the will even if we lynched and we got respect that will go on sprinkled ashes everywhere this plot is wild it is ashes and the essentially ganked poltergeist they're like all right so that's the so yeah hey guys you you you you live on the barrel ground of natives what have we take that it can use it for this again i started watching the movie last night i didn't finish it for multiple reasons our busy it was i was but okay they explain where he got the hook from and do they explain why is named candyman well the hook it's they said they shoved it the the stop when they cut his arm off and

I'll read the quote, we talk a lot about fans in the idea of appeasing fans when you do that. And how do you do that in when do you not do that? I think my issue fandom is that it's really problematic. It's probably the most problematic thing facing. John or typically comes the dogma, that is a brace of, and that is more resistant to change in permission than you would think, I think, what we're trying to do with Candyman is both be mischievous, and how we address relationship to the first home, but also be very satisfied.

I've been watching Morgan with her bad stuff and put on her makeup. You got your hair extensions. If you haven't seen the before, and after picture of, of Morgan and are like a ten thousand dollar hair extensions we've got that for you. On the website, WFL news dot com. Just go to the PM Tampa Bay page put the mirror down and focus on the show before. And after of my makeup transformation. All right. Let's get to important stuff here. What's with the borrowing of dogs? What is this service all about sell in Saint Pete? You can now go to the humane society, you can essentially rent, a dog you check it out for the day like a book just like just like a book you can go. You can take it out for the day. And you can have like you could take it on. They're calling it like a field trip. Okay. You have to pay for it. You don't pay for it. You just he signed it out. I mean, I'm sure there are there's a timeframe in the movie you go you get the dog. And then you have to bring it back by a certain time that night, you probably have to leave a credit card or something like steal the dog. Yes, you take it out in the morning. Bring it back at night, and Saint Peter's so dog friendly, the somebody places to go the ideas that you can take this dog out and about, you could take it to the dog bar and Kenwood or you could take it out to lunch with you sit outside beaches beaches. Ton of dog friendly beaches, not like on Saint Pete beach, again, just like bring it to the beach. But, like, for example, if you go all the way down to the tip of Pasa, girl, okay? Nice big dog beach for disodium. Oh, see this is a win win. Obviously, it's a win for dog. Because the dog gets out for a little bit with somebody, but it's also a win because, you know, if you're somebody who doesn't want to invest fully into a pet you don't wanna make that time commitments financial commitment. This gives you the opportunity on a weekend to do something with the dog. Yeah. I have a friend who I was talking to about this. She just lost her like thirteen fourteen year old dog a couple months ago. So she said she's. Not ready to get a new dog, but she misses being bagel to go out and take a dog out and just play for the day. So this is perfect for somebody like that, and they give you these cute little doggy business cards so that when people come up to you and say, oh, my gosh. Your dogs so cute, you can hand them a card and say actually, she's up for adoption. That's such a great idea number. Yeah. It's the best thing you've ever had a really great idea. I can say a lot of Dopp dead. I can see a lot of guys utilizing the service. It's perfect if you're if you're a single guy in the Tampa Bay area, and you've got a cute dog with you. It certainly makes it much easier to strike up conversations with single women, you might meet out about, when you've got the dog the see that's one of the problems, I have Stetson doesn't really like people. So he's if there's if there's a cute single girl walking around. And and I'm walking with him. He's not going to want to go up to her or anything like that. He'll want to go the other way. He'll be dragging me away from the person, which is the exact opposite of what you need him today. Yeah. So I'm sure these dogs are probably looking to meet every person they, they can. So this is a really great setup. So you got that service where you can rent a dog. And then there's this other service, the company's called duty calls. Great name. It's a perfect name for this company, and it's a company that goes to a customer's home and picks up after dogs, and they also have it to where like an apartment complex, or condo complex can hire them, and they can come and do the entire grounds. So they go to your house or your apartment complex, or whatever. And they remove the pet waste. They handle all of it for you. And they said their aim is to help older. Folks, you know, some people who. Yeah, can't do it physically. And then people who don't have time. Older, folks. Great. Yeah. I think that's a great idea. Great concept, people don't have time. It's still is a good idea. But come on. You're you really don't have the five minutes. It takes to right. Well, you have you have a lot of people who especially here in Florida where people have houses in backyards. And you were they let the dog out, and they don't go out with the dove is let the dog out in the bathroom. Yes. I'm in an apartment complex. I have to walk Stetson. Right. When I take him out, and I'm one of the owners when I got him. There are certain things that to me if you're gonna get a dog you should be ready to do. And one of them is pick up their crap. And so I've always been one of those dog owners. I have my bags and I've got I've got those bags. The mutt mitts. Have you ever seen these? They're like triple reinforced. Yes. Yes. To put the whole glove. Exactly. I'm not picking crap those bags. No way not happening. So I've got those backs and I will I pick it up. What frustrates me? Not just people who don't pick it up when they should what aggravates me in my apartment complex. We've got the little dog waste stations. And they there's bags there. I prefer my mutt mitts that fully protect my hand because Majorca Phob, but their their bags there for anybody who needs one what frustrates me. The most are people who don't pick up after their dog right next to the waste station. Like, how can you be that big of a jackass? Because at that point, it's not even being lazy. It's beyond laziness, how can use literally don't care about the other people that live in the guys and have animals and after walk over there. Exactly. And it's not look at me when when you're in an apartment complex and you're out there. It does not so much that it smells or even than it looks bad. It's more that there's a chance, I'm gonna frigging step. Yeah. And I mean, we're in Florida. I think about all the kids that live in complex is right around in the grass barefoot drives me absolutely insane. I you know, I'm sure they're going to be maybe some more high end apartment complexes condo complexes, who would who would use a service like duty calls, but most places they put it on you, like pick up after your dog. And if I'm out, and I see somebody who didn't pick up after the dog, and I'm out there. I'll let them know like hey, really totally totally. Confront, of course, I have no patience for that. I I'm a little more amenable to somebody who has a smaller like your dog because he's not going to be a lot there. It's the people that have these giants that storm is actually the word, right? So like a dinosaur went to the bathroom out there. Yup. Eight hundred nine six nine ninety three fifty two is the number let me get a Scott and Tampa, Scott. How are you? Scott you there? Your show as usual. Very quick comment. My wife is a dog person. She actually does pick up the Phuc this. She has noticed so many people that walk around with three or four grocery bags plastic one. Yup. And the dog will poop and then they look around and they keep going. They don't pick it up. They pretend to have the bags and filled on do it. Just needed to share that. Thank you for the call. Scott pre. She it, it you know, I, I'm telling you, I would say in my apartment complex, probably like sixty percent of the dog owners pick up the waste, and there's a lot of dogs and my complex, but there is definitely a good forty percent, maybe half the don't because it is all over the place. Really? Yeah. And we've got like one of those little dog parks. It's not really a great dog bark, but they basically. Yeah. Couple of feet. They fenced in and said, here's your dog for what was what was worse is in Chicago, Mike condo. They there was a dog park that belong to the building, I lived in and you've got so, so there's two sections, right? Across the street. One is this huge section with grass and trees and all of that. And the other one is this little fenced-in cement section. Which one would you think would be the dog park? Not the fenced-in cement. What that was what the dog park was. I'm like how in the world do you have all this grass right there for dogs and you can't use that? And they gotta go crap on cement, really is never clinched that drove me insane, but I would say actually really stupid. So we've got the little dog park in my apartment complex. Now you can never go on it because nobody picks it up. Is that bad that you don't even take steps to mental I don't even bother now? He's very particular though. He has to places where it goes to the bathroom, and the whole the whole complex one specific place in the morning and one specific place in the evening. Okay. So, yeah. Very much very particular. Yes. One more study related to dogs. I want to touch on real quick. This new study suggests dog owners experiencing long bouts of stress can transfer it to their dog apparently asked to do with cortisol and hair follicles bottom line, when the person stressed out the dog is stressed to this is not shock me at all..

I a couple of items of business one is we have to new meditations up in the ten percent happier app. The newly redesigned revamped ten percent of happier act, which has a whole new look to it so going you're an app subscriber going update at you'll see we've got a whole snazzy new look also very interested to hear what you think of that. So hit me on Twitter or go to go. Tell your coach on the app. Will you think? We're we really want to know the two new meditations one is from Joseph Goldstein's called 'em to is. And then another one called understanding stress by initia- fan Fernando poli the other item of business is that my colleague Dr Jen Ashton was on the show a couple of weeks ago. She's just written a book called life after suicide about what she and her family went through after her husband or actually they'd been divorced for two weeks. So her recent recently ex husband died by suicide and she started a podcast, which you should go. Check out it's called life after suicide you can go and subscribe right now, and the second episode has just gone up, and it is an interview with her daughter Chloe, and it is really quite a wrenching discussion about how Chloe was a college student reacted to the loss of her father and how she's been dealing with grief. Okay. Helen torque of our guest this week. She is the founding editor of a magazine called tricycle the Buddhist review, which is the first and only independent Buddhist magazine. She also before her most recent book, she wrote a book called zen in America profiles of five teachers. So now, she's got this new book called in love with the world. Helen is has been a long time, meditation practitioner and writer, she has also been a long time student of this particular teacher miniature Rinpoche after he got back from his four and a half year wandering retreat. He reached out to Helen and asked her to work with him on writing this book, he initially as she tells the story he initially wanted to write pretty much all about his near death experience. And and talk about what he saw there to break it all down. She said sure we can read about that. But I think what's equally. If not more interesting is why. Why anyone would walk away from you, basically having it all of, you know, being such a highly esteemed meditation teacher in a world where you know, he has all these attendance taking care of him and all these students who adored him, and he went out and lived on the streets. And of course, this move that he made of giving everything up is what she means by dying before you die letting go of everything and sort of living from that spot. And we talk about how in this episode. Helen, I talk about how we the rest of us can incorporate this wisdom, this perspective without living on the streets or living in a cave..

"helen learn" Discussed on Hanselminutes
"Com. Slash parallels studio x, e. So you know, you're, you know, you're some somewhat senior, but you call yourself an intermediate developer him. How long have you been in developing Helen learned for fifteen years ago. Okay. So do you feel like there's a special place for like that ten fifteen year? Intermediate developer learning where we want to learn more a certain way? I think that, like I feel like there's so much material for beginners right now. Like if you want to programming language, there's like learn python the hard way, right? Which I've heard really good things that and they're so little material. I think for for intermediate to lake, maybe advanced developers. I this really sort of formative experience five years ago where someone told me ashtrays, which is this tool that traces system calls on the necks, and I didn't know will add it know that there's some calls existed, like I didn't know how her talk to the operating system at all, and I didn't know that you could trace them with Australia's. I think at that point I've been. Driving for ten years, and I kind of like angry almost like I was like, why didn't you tell you before? Like, where was I supposed to learn this? And I realized that for a lot of things are sort of no way like I mean, of course, someone could have told me, right? Like it's possible that I guess I could've met someone told anybody, but I didn't. Right. So I was like, wait, how am I supposed to learn these straight? Like? How are we supposed to learn new things that are pretty fundamental, right? But with lake system calls her how your program talks to operate system is like a pretty fundamental active at how computers work. And of course like exhibit, oh, we'll Julia. You should have taken the operating system slauson university instead of not taking it right. But like university classes are not. I big are like the solutions like ongoing developer education. Like once he graduated from university will have learned some things, but like no matter what university went to, you're still going have not learned some important, fundamental things anyway, enter will. How do you how, how does it happen that you learn this thing. Right? Well, like I was talking to my to my spouse couple of days ago and it turns out that she doesn't know how to change her oil. Now, here's a person who's been driving for twenty years. Right? I could. So she's a senior driving engineer? Yeah. Who am I to say? How do you not know how to change your oil like? But that seems to be the way the community approaches, stuff like that. Like how do you not know that she also doesn't know how to drive a stick shift, right? I could lose my mind and and like, I don't know, stick shift to shame her for not knowing how to drive a stick, but at the same time shouldn't I be happy that automatic shift cars work and they work great so much so that she doesn't need to to know that. So then the question is, as intermediate developer, what am I supposed to knowing what's a waste like, do I need to know how to change my own oil? Or do I just hire someone to do that? Yeah, right. So it's like, how do you figure out what what you do need to know? And like once you decide you wanna know those things like, what are the resources you're going to use? Learn that. Yeah. Yeah. There's like you wouldn't go and find python for intermediate people. There's not like that book doesn't exist. Yeah. And I think I was reading the sequel programming book a little bit because I wanted to learn a little bit of staple spots and it was like, oh, here's what a variable is, and I was like, I can't what I what is this book? I, I'm not reading this right. Look. I'm not reading several. Explain to what a function is for ten pages. Like I wanna learn what I need to know about people's plus to someone who knows like these like eight other programming languages already, but I don't know, see straight like there. There listed like tricky things, people that are really surprising a someone coming from another language. But yeah, I don't know. I was like, this is really hard. It all shows where like I learned that I was mispronouncing word for the last forty years of my life. Like yesterday. Now my wife is not, you know, she's like. How did you make this far? So if that's happening to me as a native English speaker, like imagine how much computer science or software engineering that I've gotten wrong that I'm like walking around thinking I know ex and it's actually why it's gonna blow my mind and there's not only like, where do I go to learn it and learn to fix that. But also like as a community, we should be able to be public and become to, oh, I never learned how to do that. Right. But if you told someone you didn't into to a bubble sort, you lose your job. Yeah, doesn't trusting. You know, I feel we should be more kind of supportive of people in their learning and I always appreciate you on on Twitter because I know you are no, what you're talking about. It's clear in your writing. You have a great blog and mediums in all of your or fantastic. But at the same time I feel like you're very enthusiastic about learning stuff, and I wonder if people are ever like, oh, you should have known that Juliette. How did you get this far? I hate it when people do that kind of stuff. 'cause I'm always learning new hot keys and new Cisco. Yeah, I guess so. I think I didn't. I've spent a lot of time getting better at learning. I think it's really exciting to complete questions of things that I don't know. To me, it's exciting new things right? Like it's not exciting to say that like, oh, I know everything already. 'cause like launcher I'm also it's pretty boring. Like if I knew everything in programming of it, probably quit. Like, I don't know. Awful. I, I would much rather be learning you things. And so like I think the idea that it's like even desirable to know everything is something that I don't believe. And like I mean, sometimes like maybe someone a hacker Neal's, you'll be like, oh, I can't believe he didn't know like such. Hacker news accent. It, it's it's just kind of silly, right? Like I mean, like a lot of people don't know a lot of things and it's like an exciting opportunity to learn that thing. Right? You're like, oh, great. Today's the day that. Today's the day that I guess losing the thing. That's fine. Exactly. And that's, that's the way we all should be. You know, we should be positive about that stuff in because not everyone has like we may all have ten or fifteen years experience, but not everyone has the same years. Yeah, we're doing different stuff. What were you doing before you were an infrastructure engineer? I day machine learning. A machine learning to doing instructor engineering two years ago. Oh, wow. But like like machine learning is the new hotness that everyone is talking about, so you're doing it before? It was the hotness. Well, think it was. It was. It was also the hottest two years ago. I don't know. I don't have a sense of my mind like when machine started being amazing. Cool for for a minute. My bad my bed. So you also do a lot of open source and you actually took a sabbatical from work to write a profiler. How did you do that? I actually sort of don't do a lot of I took a sabbatical from work to open source for three months, but the reason I did that was I don't do in my spare time at all. Really. That's helping yet. Well, I do a lot of like writing mice very time. So if I also programmed in my spare time, in addition, it would. I think it would not be healthy. I think retail much, but yeah. So I this Rottweiler I want to write and I was like, well, I wanted this programming project and it realistically speaking, I'm not gonna did in my spare time. I'm so I applied for a fellowship and they gave you the fellowship, and then I took three months off work ends. Wow. Was that stressful knows? Great. That's it's amazing. I must be. That's the thing the only Canadians could do because I don't know if I could get healthcare if I took a three months off work. Oh, yeah, that's true. I, I don't know about that. I think someone else you get healthcare, here's tobacco and I was like, I have no idea. I didn't think about that at all. Yeah, it's another whole podcast right there. It was like, oh my goodness, three months about go to work on like something I want to work on, that would be amazing. Yeah. Yeah. I just asked my met manager permission like six months in advance. Oh, really? Okay. So you like paused your job? Yeah, came back to the same job. Yeah. Yeah, exactly. That's amazing. That's amazing. So you made a RB's spy and people can go and Google for our respond or go to arby's by. Get up dot IO. Have other people gotten involved with this profiler because it it's got lots of lots of forks and stars, but are people you get hit indignant p using it? Yeah, they've told one person left this relate delight book comment, but maybe happy where they set that they'd had this really bad performance relevant in the review program, and they used every si- and then they found it was wrong right away and they fixed it and their boss up. They were genius, which is exactly become a wizard programmer. Like they've done it exactly what you told them. They could do. Yeah. With what you want. I feel like it's like it's exciting to build tools that tell people like it'd be better and like feel like, I don't know. You want to feel like they can do anything and it was it, was it a problem had existed before, like wizar-? Is there just no good profiling for ruby right now? Are there is a good profiler, but doesn't work the same way that are b by the way, RV's fireworks is you can dislike attach it to any running reprogram on no matter what and the other providers that already existed. You kind of like at your program source code. And so being able to just like poke it, something that's already running, be locate. What are you doing? Was something that wasn't possible before. That's cool. And I understand that it's a sampling profiler, so you can actually run it like in production without fear? Yeah, that's right. That's pretty sweet. And are you continuing work on it or do you have you developed a community team around it, or is it just you? It's mostly just me. I'm still working on it a little bit, and I understand what you're trying to do. Some flame graphs as well, like bit it produces like information that you can then use to visualize. Yeah, yes. It produces visualizations by default on which was in early important design decision. I made actually because I think like. A lot of profiler will require issue like extra work to get visuals, Asian, and I thought, well, it doesn't really work for people because I think people who are profiling usually like if they're doing profiling, they probably haven't done it for like two years. Right? Like they've just cited. Okay. Today is the day that I'm gonna do profiling. I don't know how to do this. What's going on. I'm so you really like wanna give them like you wanna make the experiences, easy, famous fossil because profiling frequently. Right. So I thought it was really important to create the visualization by default, and people have said, they're like, oh, wow, I didn't know that you could make this kind of visuals, Asian. And so I think they went to go do it themselves because they didn't know that existed rate. Yeah. Like if you have to go into a bunch of setup just because you wanna ask like answering ask a question than we bother doing it. So the flame graft comes out of the box. Yeah, that's cool. Awesome. And that you did that in just a in three months, had you been working at before? Or did you do it all beginning to end the three months I built the prototype before. Awesome. Aren't. So I kind of had an idea. It was possible, which is what kind of gave you the confidence to actually take the runoff work toward on it rain. And did the did the grant like, do you have to then go to the grant people and say, look, I did a thing. Yeah. I mean, I said, like, I think I, I've been blogging about it, so they obviously knew that working on it. And so I think at the end of New England as a k. added the thing key, send me the money. It was. It was pretty simple. They're, they're, they're really great to work with. That's awesome that that's that's really cool. I, I didn't even realize that one could ask for grant and get it and do something like that. And that's inspirational to know that you can do that. Yeah. Yeah. The program was called the segment of fellowship business analytics company called segment that ran it very cool. So people can check out your genes. Should they just go to JV and s. dot CA or is there a better homepage for your genes? Yeah, they can go there. Cool. So you can just Google for Julia Evans means you're everywhere and follow you on Twitter and you're kind of working on comics all the time, and I follow you on Twitter and see those things go by and RBIs by of course, is Rb spied get Hup dot IO.
