"At progress is gonna be awesome and you should watch this space very closely if you're interested in working on ad for prize give me a call or text me or something. Pod sheets. pod sheets will return someday. Pod sheets was our effort at open source podcasting and video publishing and consumption and lots of other things basically the premises like. Do you really want this whole thing owned by spotify or owned by youtube like probably not. Let's make it open source that was sheets notes on hosting businesses hosting businesses with proprietary. You is or api's have the best most defensible margins of any software platform business that we've seen. It's even better than payments. I would argue payments is of like hosting right but the thing is payments. You can usually strip out the api if you really want to. I mean it's not like you really want to do that ever but you could do it however trying to re platform away from her roku. That's a really really difficult thing. I mean you could do it trying to re platform away from. Aws really really hard trying to move off of like dot net not really possible So you gotta take seriously the beast of a business that harajuku is. I think her roku remains one of the most underestimated portfolio sleepers in business and it explains sales forces eventual potential to rival. Even amazon is the most rapidly growing behemoth in the world. Does anybody know how much money roka's making. Hello anybody out there. I don't think anybody knows other than people who are like established employees of salesforce. Hiroko probably crushing it. Hiroko like like aws but cleaner. It's like an apple level cloud provider. Does anybody remember that. like hello. has anybody out. There re platform away from her. Oku didn't think so. What would you move to render dot com. I love render dot com invested in it. But it's not the same generation that's like comparing apple and stripe like the most design focused company at the time of cloud providers. Coming out was pretty much roku and it doesn't matter who's come sense then. Hiroko had the most steam. It doesn't matter that they were acquired by salesforce which was not known for its developer experience prior to roku but heroic who has has basically become a massive component of salesforce. It it. there's no it's not. And they've maintained such a clean set of things that they built. They built harajuku kafka. They built her roku post grass. They built her roku redness. Who roku is a beast. If you don't know who roku watch out. It's hiroko notes on collaboration businesses. It's super hard to get enough people using a collaboration business. I know this tried with find collapse and the thing is even if you get people using a collaboration business like a Like a click or like a A jira or like a fine collapse or even slack. Yes even slack. These things can be switched away from so i just don't the collaboration businesses not a fun place to play in. I think you can really really get into some dangerous business territory. I mean look at look at what has happened with with base camp. I mean based campus. Really interesting they've got. I'm not even talking about the controversy. I'm really not talking about that. The base camp of business has kind of a loose collection of collaboration tools. That i think all are a little bit. Outdated like they're not totally outdated but they're just not up to date as much as slack and that's largely because of their venture financing but it's also because of like the collaborates the nature of collaboration tools. They just are always outdated and kinda crappy even notion feels a little dated now. It feels a little bit clunky. It's great it's great. But it's like i kind of just keep returning to word. Documents and basic google spreadsheets. Like i even air table sometimes gets a little too congested. So collaboration businesses so dangerous. But that said i do think. Social collaboration is a frontier. That has been very little explored If you look at where slack is going with these connected channel thingies and huddles and whatnot like social. Collaboration is just going to be a frontier. And i was there early with fine labs but but managed the company like a total idiot. So by the way. I've shutdown find collapse. But i should never have shut down because it was like six bucks a month or something and hosting By the way here's a very opinionated note. Do not shut down side projects unless they're costing you fuck ton of money. Don't shut down your side project because it's gonna come back to be something you want to show the people and however crappy you feel your side project is. It's probably a lot better than what a lot of people have. Which just nothing most. Most people probably don't even have a single side project. It's active on the internet. So if you have literally anything like a game a tic tac toe service literally anything. It's probably going to be pretty cool if you show it to some people but anyway what i was gonna say is fine collapse. It's shutdown. i need some help. Booting it back up anyone out there wanna help me hello. Please help me with this thing. I'll pay you some money. If you wanna help me set this thing back up. Basically all you need to know basic firebase stuff and you need to know how to contact the guy who was working on find collapse before i shut it down so daily go to software. Daily sophomore daily is like fine collapse. At this point software dailies a place to collaborate socially you can check out software daily dot com to see all of my plans including an uber like services company and a new mobile operating system..

Flat Earthers: What They Believe and Why

"This is scientific. American science talk posted on March. Twenty seven twenty twenty. I'm Steve Mirsky. I'm going to let my guest introduce himself in a moment because he does a better job than I could. Midway through the following discussion. We'll take a break for a short segment sponsored by the Calveley prize with Caltech Planetary Astronomer. Michael Brown who has done groundbreaking work though solar system breaking work on the Kuyper belt and its largest members. His segment is not unrelated to what will be talking about now. It's not about corona virus. You'll find some parallels to how some people are reacting to corona virus. Buckle up so I'm Michael Marshall and I'm the project director of the good thinking society which is a charity based in the UK the whole purpose charities to promote science to challenge pseudoscience. So we'll do work Ford Science Education and then another PA the work that we do. The bulk of my work is to find ideas. That aren't backed by evidence and find people who are promoting those ideas find people who are buying into those ideas and to explore them and figure out if anything can be done to prevent people being confused by them Hound by the misled by them and those kinds of things. So I spent a lot of time looking at things like alternative cancer kills and the people who promote those and alternative medicine spent a lot my time going to see people who say they can talk dead. Oku can do faith healing and then another part of my time is spent token people who believe in unusual ideas and kind of proponents. And that's how I came across the flat. Earth world is through my slightly odd a hobby at the time before I was working. Fulltime as as a skeptic is a hobby of mine to be in rooms filled if he who disagree with me to just understand what brings people to ideas that. I would look at and say well. This can't be true. These kind of fringe and extreme and unusual beliefs. What brings people to believe them? And what what? What kind of path leave people there will? Evidence supports supports that position in their minds. And how do they engage with the world with that worldview and try and have conversations? Podcast where I talked to people who have kind of fringe beliefs and instead of having a conversation that a lot of people have if they are a skeptic about something and they're talking to believe where you shout at them and tell them never home and point out all the evidence and tell you gets into a volatile discussion sometimes instead of that. I've tried to have a civil and polite chat to try and explore the gap between us. So I don't believe in this idea of yours but I'm reading to figure out why I don't believe it. Why do so? Let's have a conversation? So have these kind of civil discussions and that's kind of how I came across That the flatter theory and the idea that there are people walking around today. Who think well this flat. This is really interesting and serendipitous that were sitting here because I knew that there were some flatter. Thor's out there and I just thought it was kind of strange and funny and about a week ago I discovered a friend of mine who is very well educated. She got a doctorate in biochemistry and She has a sister who's also very intelligent and very well educated and my friend told me that her sister is a flatter and that her sister is very indignant about the idea that We don't take them seriously and she said something to the effectiveness is hearsay. That we're getting for me right now. That will you know if you looked at the evidence. Then you'd know that what you've been told isn't true. So all of a sudden became fascinated with the flat earth people and then Just on twitter and I had I had been a follower verve yours until I saw this tweet that somebody I follow must've re tweeted that you had just given a talk in Edinburgh where I have been and So I reached out to you and it turns out you live in Liverpool and here I am in Liverpool today. So that's why we're here talking so tell me what do the flat Earth People Think and why do they think it so to your packet question that will bit because it's very easy for us to see the flat? Earth Movement is one singular cohesive movement and. That's how I I thought about it when I first came across in two thousand thirteen when I came across the flutter society in the UK. And so I had a conversation with the vice president of the Flat Earth Society and I assumed you probably have in your mind that people who believe the world is flat thing that the world's disk and in the center you've got the Arctic Circle then you've got all the continents of the world are splayed out to fill the circle. Antarctica is like the edge of disk. But I found out when I first spoke to flatter societies that not everyone in the world has that version of the world and the heads. Some do believe it's a disc but others believe that. Yes the Arctic Circle in the middle the landmasses around it and then on top Around the edge but instead of it being discreet disc some people believe in fact Antactica just on forever and all directions and so they believe that the earth is actually an infinite plane in all directions that bisects reality which is a really lovely idea. What does that mean by? Second three dollars so it will go on. North South East West go on forever and there is the above and the below. But there's no way of getting from the top to the bottom because it's just infinity of all ice in all directions forever so there's no way of getting below the earth and so this was when. I first came across the floor of moving in two thousand thirteen. This quite vociferous debate that was going on and the website of the three in the flat. Earthers yeah it was. It was quite a schism really and so they'd the society. The the time was largely a forum where they would bring forth that proofs of one version this theory or another and I also think there's another schism going on in the movement at the time Which is between one side which people who genuinely really believed the world was flat and the other side which after he did not believe it but enjoyed intellectual pursuit of arguing a position than you false and so they would find quite esoteric off the wall proofs that most people wouldn't think of and so when I first came across it in two thousand thirteen there are people waiting into these arguments who believe the world is round but had never thought about it the fall but just assumed innocent of arrogant way that they must know better than anybody who's thought about it and come to a different conclusion and so they were stumping into these arguments saying well what about photos of the earth from space and what about this and what about ships going with the rise in thinking. Well this is the Gotcha but not realizing that those are the first things they thought about that. They thought the world approved walls around. And therefore it's probably likely that people who think the world is flat had the same idea and yet they're still flat earth So at least in their mind they must have a good answer to that. The people believe the world was round in these arguments. Didn't have 'cause they'd never scrutinize the idea. They rejecting enough and so what was happening. Was I think to a degree? The part of the schism that were just having fun and move very well. The world wasn't flat but just enjoyed the pursuit of doing that. They will winning those arguments of people who are coming in and arrogantly assuming that they could answer everything and in winning those arguments they were really converting even more people who really believed it. And so you had this kind of effect where we saw spiral out of control a little bit. But I think it it wasn't viral in the way that in two thousand thirteen and a as a in the way that it was in two thousand sixteen in two thousand seventeen. I'm think PA that is because that ISA teric off wall version of proofs could be quite complicated to get your head around so for example if you have the disc version the world and the infinite plane version both muddles suffer from an inability to explain gravity. You don't have the spherical mass united central mass of a central point pulling it all two to one point So it's very difficult to explain. Gravity neither one models but these people who are doing kind of East Tarik arguments are saying well what gravity gravity and accelerate falls towards the ground. Think nine point. Eight meters per second. Squared accelerates downwards. They said that is identical to a world in which the ground accelerates upwards to meet you and so when you let go of something it isn't that it's accelerating downwards that it's the grounds accelerating up to meet it Sephora relativity and that's this is exactly where they come to you so people then say when if ground is if the earth is an infinite in all directions that by sex reality and is accelerating open at nine seconds and always has been since the dawn of time. You'd hit a problem which would be the speed of light. You can't go fast so people don't have a Gotcha for this. And so the people who were putting forth esoteric the wall trobisch arguments would say well look at Einstein's theory of relativity as you approach light speed time itself slows down and the mats in their head works back out again so yes beginning. Quick time getting slower and we can account for gravity in that way. And that's quite a complicated auditing Enron. And so I think the fact that these people were winning arguments was getting converting some people movement but the way in which they were winning them were keeping people away from the movement because they were quite complex ideas to you. Couldn't stick them on a mean as you can these days. Here's a picture of the earth. You couldn't explain all that stuff about the relatively proving gravitate infinite plane version of the world. So I think it was a limiting factor going on and that's why when I first came across the free movement it was probably still pretty small. Pretty unknown I've been given talks about pseudoscience for the last five six plus years and I've mentioned that I came across the Flat Earth. Moving and people would always say to me this. Nobody who actually believes that nobody actually doesn't really exist. That people having fun with stay quite small and then in. Twenty fifteen in two thousand sixteen a couple of things happened that really ignited a movement and it was the publishing of two videos on Youtube video series on Youtube. One I believe was Eric. Debate tuned approves the Spinning Globe. And the other was mark sergeants. Fourteen videos in his letter clue series.

"People caretakers. It's more of a shift. In emphasis shifting thinking more naming else rather than an implementable action and changing. Someone's thinking is a is a very difficult thing to try to achieve again. I'll go back to what you were saying. She was talking about client manages opposed to to actual property managers. I've always believed it's asset management and. That's what essentially is so being broader in what we do not to focus. Ob drawn down into the the problem element of property management. Let's face it. There's a hell of a lot of problems and a number of headaches but understanding and seeing that the bigger picture also for principals as well to to educate and upskill themselves. If you had to go to. Let's say an Eric Frog on the site. You'll see a number of real estate principles. Eric you see far less equivalent being open open of course so what I typically find is going back to that journey of a principal most of them salespeople that have kind of stepped up this is your biggest asset. This is your retirement fund. And you've got to get in there. Don't pass off to somebody else decalogue after you've got to get in and you know every last aspect element of that business so in the if a property manager was unwell one day you could step in and do their job because once you start doing that you start realizing hang on it. Why do we do that? Why do we do this? Why do we have this technology? There's a there's a better more efficient turn out there and I don't think enough principals actually do that enough going get their hands dirty and educate and upskill themselves yourselves property management. It's very foreign to them. Many ways. Yeah absolutely will. There's no excuses with Eric this year. She going Gary Can often marched together. All okay there's there's plug. Yeah I listened on some actionable tips for the listeners. Because we love getting actionable tips and since taking shy nights I tried to get a minimum of six links. It's my personal. KPI High Top agents stop partners. What are they focusing on right? Now being hyper local Oku educating people as I touched on earlier really really during the undestanding their role that purpose who they serve and that's essentially what we need to see themselves as another thing that sort of coming to terms visit they content providers. I mean again our region magazine. I've seen the POCUS. There's numerous people have been before me. You've said the same thing understanding content providers but also understanding what they're actually good at so I've seen a number of them trying to trying to themselves. You need to double down on being a salesperson listing selling. I would introduce a third party. WHO's an expert in that field to aid and assist you in that respect so absolutely being being local talking about local matters getting out and about meeting people but also really understanding digital spice and getting for parties to come in tonight and assist you in that respect? What's the best pace of actionable advice you've ever been given about real estate business? I suppose it sends around time really yet. Don't suffer fools appreciate appreciate in value. Time is the most precious of commodities use it wisely and kind of get to the point. I have a propensity to be verbose. Sometimes so the outages wise one hundred words when you can use twenty so cutting to the chase getting to the point and doing so not because rude or obnoxious just because you then create Motaung to do maybe more productive things day speaking of productivity what is your best productivity cheap or your favorite productivity tool at the moment on old school cool in that respect so what like a whirlwind so I may not work as long hours of some of the people in the industry but boy oh boy when on it on it and I think one of the things you just call all the noise Mrs Simple as that. Don't get distracted. Even something as simple as batching emails. For argument's sake you know we're very impulsive. Response any lastly distraction because we almost welcome distraction in many ways so just literally just tunnel vision literally just tunnel vision. And that's what you need to do and you can do that. Maybe two or three times a day so to speak. But yeah just eliminating distractions and we all know around distractions so just get away from them. That's good advice. Say any books. What's your favorite booked? You've ever read now. I'm going to sound like a right dummy here. I actually haven't read a boat for probably about five years and that's not to say unread unread or unintelligent I actually probably spend up to fifteen forty five minutes to an hour and a half. Every day seeking information. I have a hunger for information. I have a hunger for for self-improvement I read all the time. I just don't read books so I listen to podcasts. I read a lot of obstacles talking books. I read a lot of our allies. I shouldn't books bit lazy but it's a shortcut about finding out the juicy parts. I'm somebody who just fills my head with as as much as I possibly can. If you ever need an extra team member when you pop trivia quiz give us a shout but yeah I mean I think also a number of people perhaps watching this who don't read books themselves and they probably feel less intelligent because of that. Don't as long as you still have the desire to go out and self improve and learn. That's fine you don't have to read a book and I think there's also some people watching this who say rude countless books and probably don't either by the way yeah. I wasn't reading a lot of books till I started hosting a podcast thin everyone. Everyone seemed to have a book that they want to talk about on the podcast. I've read about twenty this. She roenick because I used to read books until podcast antithesis occupation of John Jr so this has been Super Fun Anyway Doug Nixon we've got something controversial to pull par going on the first of all. Thank you sharing your knowledge today. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I'm sure that they've been helpful to some people who kind of thinking about things but too afraid to talk about and if there's one thing that you want everyone remember from everything we've talked about today what would it be because it probably doesn't get enough as much airtime as the other topics discussed going back to the Obviously obviously the obligations responsibilities of a workforce. It may sound if I'm kind of bashing principles here I'm not because actually it permeates for out any organization nations and it sounds Ott but just become to each other you know and just think twice about certain words or actions or behaviors also for those people you put in a position of authority or leadership might not be you but it could be someone else in your organization as well but if you see or hear it you need to stamp it out. You can't tolerate it because if if something sinister settled down and then obviously. That's them reported by not doing you become complacent yourself. So I think like I said we just need to be acutely aware of this. And we need to Kinda nip it in the Baden cut at every level. Even if you're somebody who works in office not principal manager you hear or see someone doing something. Let me scared to say something. Stop it it has to BECA- out altogether. It's just not acceptable in any walk of life except in real estate. That's for sure. Yes that's right. A noise remember that change starts with you. Correct absolutely say never never was anything.

The Legend of Pokou

"Are stories today highlights leader whose life was surrounded by legend magic. She overcame significant. Hardship stood up to an army and eventually established a new homeland. Let's let's talk about Queen. Pokou Poku was born around seventeen hundred likely in what's now Ghana to a noble family of the Ashanti People. They were a centuries old African tribe with roots dating back as far as the year thirteen hundred poku was the niece of. Oh say two known as has the greatest Ashanti King because the Ashanti monarchy was matrilineal Poku was included in the line of succession during his rule. Oh say to united in many smaller kingdoms into the larger Ashanti Empire when in seventeen eighteen he was ambushed and killed Howard passed onto poku brother their day. Calm during day Khan's rule who selected a husband an attempt to produce an heir. It didn't get pregnant. Who was quite brave? Leave one day when day Khan and the army were away from the Ashanti. Capital enemy troops ambushed the town and killed all the royal princesses except Recoup Kuku arranged for others to escape but decided to stay behind and defend the town however she cut the enemy. Warriors took her hostage. d-conn soon returned from war furious to discover the besieged capital. He appointed a warrior named Tano to lead Loku's rescue party. They successfully successfully defeated the enemy group and got poku back Tano and Poku then got married. The new couple had a baby boy together. The heir to the Ashanti anti thrown Dakin fell ill when Poku son was still only a baby so we attempted to appoint an older air but day. Cons choice was murdered by his rival. Who who hoped to seize the throne himself after killing the chosen heir? The rival tried to gain favor with Poku to secure his place on the throne but she refused to endorse him. He was determined to seize power regardless so poku left the shontae capital altogether to establish her own kingdom. She invited anyone anyone in the Ashanti Empire to come with her and many of the smaller kingdoms previously united by her uncle Osa to to decided to follow her to a new land. The story of Baku's peril filled adventure to a new land has been passed down in legend. For centuries in many ways echoes the story of Moses and the Hebrews escaped from Egypt and Pokou and her followers fled the capital city with the soldiers of the guy who wanted to be king on their trail. They had to navigate a treacherous jungle filled with snakes panthers and giant elephants many of them also fought illness through the hazardous journey coup and the fleeing subjects reached an impasse. Thank thank Komo River which was to deep and violent across. According to legend the group decided they had to make a sacrifice to the river gods in order to make the crossing crossing possible Poku that she would have to sacrifice something hugely important to her in order to save for people in anguish. She sacrificed her son to the river. Ever different versions of the legend claim. A variety of magical means helped Pokou and her people cross the river including an enormous tree bridge and the help of crocodiles and hippos regardless the refugees cross. The river narrowly escaping pursuit. When Poku Oku safe she cried Bali which means the child is dead because of this new group of settlers came to be called the bow? The the exodus from the Ashanti capital occurred sometime between seventeen thirty and seventeen fifty. Migration took the ballot into what's now Cote d'Ivoire their err poku conquered territory established a new homeland for her people.

"And we're back you're listening to bonus stage one from street fighter three third strike it's the arcade and then the online edition on xbox three sixty playstation three and four composed by Hideki Oku gala which could easily be mistaken for terminator acts of public enemy because this man this is some dirty dirty break beat rob drop some heavy lyrics over this I started hitting these dead on I can't even question so so we were talking about earlier I got really really into not really into rap music like really into sampling and and that's when I started the DJ and my friend Chris he was really big into searching for records for break beats and samples and stuff and so what we would do we listen to old all public enemy albums and then go and try to find the actual samples and we would recreate the songs real frolic sample this specific sections and then loop them and then recreate them again and then when they were we will be done we'd be like Oh oh we just that's that's the song I guess we done something original but we spent the whole afternoon doing this instead there's something to be said about I think if you are able to deconstruct and reconstruct it at the ultimate can teach you more so that if you do decide to go again like turntables but now everything's I can use software but Mitchell like so I mean with this game that's just it's pleaded now like what are some things that you've learned along the way that maybe you wish you knew ahead of time so for composing kind Z. fear are the thing about is that the baseline is constant throughout the entire game whether you're in different levels trombone levels the drums accordion or in your main menu the baseline is constant and so I had to then make also when you progress through the levels new layers get added on top says the puzzles become more complex citizen music but because it all over one baseline it's this one mega modular song and sometimes it's really hard to write new things that without just being redundant or also because you have to have something happening at the entire stem you can't just have big gaps in any in the stems otherwise no one would notice when a new one would come in so how do I make things not money and all sorts of stuff but one thing that I did learn along the way is that sometimes you can be redundant intentionally and then it's late motifs and now you got some narrative kind of stuff going on it sounds like that where it's like you're you're like the section you repeated a few times but now that's like kind of like a secondary like little verse that they can call active player right yeah so the the accordion and the trombone goes on a date and so I actually have that they have a little boat ride together it's really cute but The accordion has a has a stem that in that level and the trombone has level they play by different instruments but you see well maybe you can recognize that it's like Oh that's this expo line from their trauma and that is the other instruments regarding yeah I am genuinely looking to this I luck is expected to be here's a level here's a level almost like almost catharines towers out without the other stuff outside of the towers nobody there's like a full on story going on you're really using so so does it does it primarily use music as its language there's little dialogue that happens before each level and actually kind of during the level sometimes too but think that to me like the music is it's sort of being unfurled as the levels progress and I think that it's used as a narrative I don't WanNa get too much into certain things but I want to give a talk about this at some point I'll be really interested in that but let's keep the show moving along because we got some more many games or mega nine games all of mine are quite smooth there's like sometimes these mini games can overtake what the actual game as you know and I think this might be an example of that because it did exactly that at least four grand period of time mm-hmm so this track is from the game Tokyo Xanadu E.

"I'll be at a little jet lag today. I did us get in late last night. And I've been in Japan for three weeks. So it's, it's going to be a little bit of a shock to the system for the next few days, but I love it. We get you like fresh off the plane, like your head probably hasn't even had time to process, everything that you just went through, and we're going to go there. Anyway. Well good as long as long as you know that. I'm good to go. I was wondering where my niece has soup west this morning, have any, I missed it. Was that? Did you have that like every day? Yeah. Most. Yeah. Japanese breakfast, always Mesa soup. Normally some fish various other things that I had no idea what it was. But yeah, I got used to that. Wow. That's so cool. So you were there for three weeks, and that is what we are here to talk about, of course. So I guess we can get right into it. You did a portion of its just a portion you did of the commodity Kodo. Right. Well. It's a it's a good question. Because what I did was the new Koto, and it's unlikely, a regular pilgrimage route where you have a very specific beginning and ending. It's a little bit more going to say. Haphazard. But, but yes, I did five days of it. Basically, went from one place to and finished at temple. But there were a few times, where I had to take buses in order to make that work, but yeah, so I did the pilgrimage I technically got the status of a pilgrim. Come on. Koto pilgrim. And there are longer routes. There's about seven routes that you can do on the commodity Koto. Okay. So let's start with the first question, which is, what, what is the commodity Koto like you have already mentioned that it's a pilgrimage? Uh-huh. This is we. We did talk a few sets back about the community Santiago in Spain being a pilgrimage. So maybe you can enlighten us a little bit about what the come on. Koto trail, actually is. Yes, I wish I wish I could say fully understood it, but I still had something very different. It is a pilgrimage, but it's not a Christian pilgrimage. It's a ancient pilgrimage from the eleventh century in which basically people from all walks of life from emperor to samurai to just regular people used to complete and I shouldn't even say complete they used to walk in this area. So it was considered the key peninsula, which is a south of Osaka. It's one of the biggest peninsulas in Japan is the area for the Camano hikes and key k I actually means tree. And this whole area is filled with mountains and trees sounds beautiful. It is beautiful. It's just green trees everywhere. But this was an area where people used to come. To kind of cleanse themselves in a way, it was a, it was a process of purification in praying and kind of becoming one with nature, so where's the community? Santiago is this whole process of walk into the end and basically being forgiven of your sins. Getting the Compostela. The KOMO news Koto isn't quite as clear as that. But it is the idea of pilgrimage ING through these kind of sacred mountains to three. There's three different sacred shrines that you can attend or go to, and it's a process of purification in getting closer to nature. So that that's what it is from a historical standpoint. Now it has developed into these kind of seven routes, and it also, I can't remember what year it was but achieved UNESCO world. Heritage status a few years ago. And it is the only other pilgrimage route, basically that is cheap UNESCO status. In addition to the Camino to Santiago, so that's why lots of times they've talked about together as kind of sister pilgrimages. Uh-huh. Okay. Yeah. You did mention that earlier. So that does make sense. Okay. Yeah, but they're two very different religions. So the other thing is the Japanese basically practice Buddhism, and Shintoism, which are there to religions in what the commander Koto or what this area did was kind of bring the two together and intermixed them. So it is spiritual definitely spiritual. But it's just it's not like the Christianity that many Americans were used to. Okay. So do you know I have two questions to follow that up? Do you know approximately like is it pretty touristy or do you know? Well, that's a hard question to you, because there are multiple different routes, I suppose, but I mean, I know that it's not as popular as the Camino, we can start with that nodded. Yeah. So did you see a lot of people when you were out there? I mean who knows about this, and who's going to do this hikers? Or do you think people are there to actually respect the, the reason it's there in go to, like kind of cleanse, and do like the nature thing. What do you think about that depends? So as far as the reason people are there it depends, I would say the few Japanese people that I met along the trail. It was a little bit more of a maybe kind of us spiritual journey for them. Whereas all kind of the, the westerners western Europeans Americans are probably there, mainly to hike and a lot of people I have a feeling. Are there who have locked the Camino to Santiago, and are looking for other pilgrimages to do which is what really brought me there, too? So as far as how many people it's a good question. I actually asked one of the big providers there that I worked with Oku Japan, if they had any stats on the number of people who finished or you know, but like I said, it's not a real clear cut starting finish. So it's, it's hard to say and they didn't have any numbers nor did the tourism board, really any real good numbers that they could share with me. Sadly, but from my experience. No, they were not a lot of people at all. On average, like I did count one day it was a full day of hiking for me. I think it was only like a little over six miles, but it was a long day. So it was up and down through these mountains. I walked solo. But in that day, I saw only think it was ten other groups of people, and that mainly consisted of couples. There was maybe two out of those ten that was bigger groups that were hiking together. Let's say ten or more. Let's say ten probably ten people. And then there were very few solo hikers too. I mean, I may be ran across to other solo hikers. So I thought that was really interesting. Most of the time I was at their hiking. I was pretty much felt completely alone. So in that way, it's nothing in many ways, actually, it's nothing like the Camino to me, the only thing that the Camino, and this pilgrimage the KOMO Makoto heaven. Come in are the UNESCO status. Very different things. Okay. Yeah. That pretty much means it's exactly like totally different from the canal. Okay. I mean, and they're both pilgrimages will relate in this different and, but the type of pilgrimage is very, very different. The one thing also to know is because it's just gaining popularity there, the infrastructure around. It is not there yet. And I don't know that ever get there as far as like the community Santiago, which has so much infrastructure around it in the sense of like lodging restaurants, you know, services, more the pilgrims. This is very much restricted because the places where you go the, the villages are small, and there's not a lot of lodging options. So it's kind of self restricted by the fact that there's nowhere to stay really don't book early enough for few don't organize it, it's not the type of trail at least during the higher seasons. Probably in the winter. This would be okay, but anything other than winter, it's not the kind of trail where you just walk in hope to find a place to stay when you're done walking right in a. Apparently you can do that on the communal like depending on the season. Yeah. Okay. Oh, wow. Okay. And so let's, let's be clear about the timing you this is June right now. And so you were there, walking the at the end of the day, the last week of may and that was shoulder season. Or do you think that was tourist season getting into? It's you know, I would say it's kind of on the its near shoulder season because June is considered rainy season for Japan. Okay. So most people had told me had suggested that I get as much, but, you know, don't really come too much June. Maybe beginning of June is okay. But the other thing that you have to think about, and this is okay. Who really helped me with this too, is I was going to go at the beginning of may, and they're like, no don't even bother because it's Golden Week in. Japan which is like a week long holiday. And they're like, don't even bother then because it would be a mess. So that's why I moved it to later in may. I think, but I, of course, don't know 'cause I didn't do it. I personally think the best times to go would be early spring, like say March April, and then probably fall. Let's say September October November. I think the summer would be pretty warm and you contend with rain. A lot more brain probably June, July. Okay. That's good Intel, and if you go in the spring, that's oh, some CNN. Right. Yes. Yes. Now granted you are walking mainly not through cherry trees. You're walking through Japanese cedar. But still, it would be dutiful. It's a good time to be in Japan, regardless. Yeah. You can you can go to Kyoto, right? And see the cherry blossoms there. I see all the crowds, and then escaped to the keeping flood, like it out forest bay than the mountains. So you mentioned that you did it solo but you did go with Oku. So did they did? They was it easy to follow the, the pather like were there signs along the way. Did they have to give you instruction I'm like thinking back to when I went on my bike tours and leg? We had to follow the directions otherwise we would have been lost. But in a place like I don't know the w for example, interest so pinedale like you can't really get lost their like it's easy to follow. So how was it injected in there? And I've done the w so yes, I would say it was more like the w you really can't get lost. Okay. However, yes, I went with Oku Oku provides a self guided option where they helped you set up. They basically help you kind of figure out how many days, you're going to be there and the Browns you wanna take the help you set up all the lodging any food that kind of goes along with the lodging and they do give you. You a ton of information on maps, and, like how to get to the trail heads. And then there are a lot of places to where like I said, unlike the Camino, where you do sometimes have to take a bus or some kind of public transportation to get to the next place, and they help you organize all of that. Now I'll be very honest. I freaked out when I got there, big packet of information started reading through it, of course, at the last minute 'cause I do everything last minute. So like, you know the week before I'm supposed to go, I'm reading through all of this stuff about every day, and all these detailed things about the, the, you know, the trail and the maps, and all this stuff and I kind of freaked out because I'm like, oh, my God. This is so much harder than I thought it was going to be. And I'm imagining myself getting loss, you know, walking alone and all this stuff, and I actually wrote them and, and I'm like, wow, this seems really complicated. And they're like, no, it'll be fine. It'll be fine. And so I get there and it wasn't complicated at all. When I learned to do from the logistic kind of logistics stuff that they sent me was not really too much, not worry too much about it, but only read one day at a time. Like what do I have to do tomorrow? I have to get up and I have to catch this bus and whatever I'm walking this route and day by day. It's really easy. And I didn't even honestly I didn't even open their maps when I was on the trail. So that's how easy it was around the trail. Maybe only can I think of two times that in my head. I thought I hope I'm on the right trail.

You don't want to say I've insane. This for a log. Not the. I've been doing this year's been calling biggers stints before was okay. I'll give Stor with this meager shit. Okay. I'm I'm calling. I mean, I go way back with the nigger calling. Okay. So I think you'll understand when I say the problem is on both sides. Yeah. I go way back when you throw them on your back. They told me on the back, and I'll say give me over by the town. Okay. That's how back go back with shit. Okay. So let me just tell you. That's what the real problem is. It's not just a racist white people, which I'm not one of okay this. We don't want to talk about the fact is on the Republicans tied a lot of people see the rise or extrordinary important new constituent in American politics Hispanics, who will come here and all be Democrats. Also, I hear when I push people little girl. I don't know. Whether I want Brown grandbabies. I mean, that's also a part of it is the intermarriage that is going on the cultures. That are. Okay. I got stop. Today's one day all become Democrats know that don't act. Ex people, you know, down in lawer eggs opposed online. We not catching all that. Okay. Okay. The other part is those are as is probably want banner. You know, the word children go intermarry 'cause they're racist. Is these new saying usually why we can't really like rely on them as people we can reach? They don't want round gate grandbabies. And it's a chance that they already have some preconceived notion the wrap around people know, okay? Cou cou my back back to the video though, MO for some looking which other. I also have a boys Hispanics, you work harder. Symbolizing as one of the things I've been saying for a long time, you know, they ought not to be just codified in their communities, but make sure that all their kids are learning to speak English, and that they feel comfortable in the communities, and that's gonna take outreach on both sides. Frankly, congressman Peter and nobody question here. No, I was like a. Races. Guess this one that accident racism Oku Jay saying about because of bread you sound racist to me..

"Some questions about other markets. There are a number of second layer cloud providers. So I've talked to some companies recently like spot in st- or Zeitz or horr- Oku. How do the margin profiles of second layer clouds compare to those of base-level clouds like AWS, I do think that you're asking the right medication? And the right meta question is is this a winner take all market like his era enough scale level moat is enough of a scale level moat because you have his ability because you've got the economies of scale that you end up becoming the next generation telcos. So what pretty much any economist will tell you is that if you have an economic system or the incremental cost of adding another user converges on zero this is absolutely the case with telcos, right? Then you'll end up in a monopoly situation. That's just basic economics has nothing to technology right at the incremental cost of. Adding that additional user convergence on zero you tend to have monopoly situations. And then the question is is that the case for for these large clouds now, it seems to be that clouds can actually differentiate by the way that services a commodity service. Right. And that's something that anybody can offer that service. It seems like the the clouds can differentiate an ad value. I mean, the workloads at run on Azure, acts you tend to be quite different than those that run on Amazon or digitalization if so we're we're investors in digital ocean. Also tends to be much more developer focus different types of workloads. And so I think actually you may end up in a situation where you can maintain margins through differentiation and through fragmentation of the not the customer base, but the use case base. It was interesting. We used to sell them the multi cloud environments all the time, but multi cloud didn't mean the same workload went between clouds, which I think is one of the biggest misunderstandings on the planet. Right. And like just because someone is multi cloud doesn't mean that they can actually arbitrate clouds. It just means that they use multiple clouds for use case that's best suited. And if if you maintain that, I mean, this is this trillion dollar markets all of IT. Going after. Yeah. Then you can think that actually there will be a fragmentation they'll be differentiation. If that's the case you will be able to maintain margin. But it's early to say that for fact, you could also go back to the taco gays and sitting actually everybody's gonna offer the same thing. The incremental cost betting users going to converge on zero there for the largest one will win. And right now that looks like that would be as on. Why hasn't there been a company that does this arbitrage between different cloud providers? Will so many have tried. Yeah. I've been very close to a number that have tried. And here's my view, my view is because it's not really solving customer pain point. And if that's your primary value. I don't think you can build a successful company. Now is the secondary value. It's great. But I don't think you can sell on that alone. So how do you save money on Amazon the best.

These are these long-lived container instances, the server service containers, how do the containers that you're spinning up for people on ocean compared to these container instances that the cloud providers offer. So I think we're hitting a spot where we basically offer the same service like like Ozzy container instances, the or. And a just a matter of like how efficient we are in acquiring the underlying computes and our goal is to be way more efficient that any other provider in acquiring the compute underneath of the container. Right now, I find these container instances so interesting and so useful because I've been a longtime user of horr- Oku and her Roku is as far as I know just giving you a container it's been giving people containers for a very long time since before containers were trendy and they're called Dyno's on her Oku and heroic is made a great business out of selling Daigneault's to people because that's all you need often.

They can spin up their entire application is just some monolithic application that just runs in a long lived container. And and that's great. That's what a lot of people need. So that's what AWS and Azure have been offering with this far gate and container instances products respectively. And I was talking to you about this. When we were at qb con, but it surprises me that there's not more excitement around the idea of these low cost cloud provider container instances where you can just spin up your monolith in standalone container people see more excited about the idea of managing a Cooper netties cluster.

So they will not introduce like, you know, some spaceship when you you just need like a regular car. And I think that that's a big thing for Amazon and right now, he's becoming popular because people like did that you know, runway. Like, hey, we knowing what is container. Okay..

"Yeah. It probably has to do with specialization with these kids high school age. I they you have to pick a sport. Like, you cannot be three sport. It's so bad as three sport athletes in high school these days because if you wanna be a college quarterback, and you wanna be a top caused quarterback. You got you have to be throwing the ball year round. It's almost a detriment for you to be playing baseball and coaches to like, oh, why are you playing baseball at your taking? Time away from getting better at full we'll quarterbacks golfers too. That's the other part of it. Now, I almost feel like there's to some degrees almost become a different sport. I mean, they're trained differently like they personal coaches when they're really young right there when they when they get to high school there recruited differently than other players, right? Like a lot of times you'll see like the kid commits a junior now of a sudden he's like helping the college recruit the rest of his class, and then they get college. And it's like three they're starting transferring. So the college experience is different. And then when they get to the pros, they're drafted differently the bars a little lower like, you don't necessarily have to have a first round great, like if you're a guard, right or you're a lot you need to be outstanding outstanding on the first round at quarterback like he'd be really good. But like there's the like they may be willing to overlook a couple of things because the importance the position. So it's just it's almost like the coming up in a different sport. There's nothing. I I can't think of anything like it in any other. Port. The quarterback is the most important -sition football right now. And it's being drafted that way too. And you that's I think that is showing what you said. And how these guys are not being this now teams are taking chances on them to these guys early Oku.

"The idea of Zeitz of this higher level cloud provider. This is something that was I pursued by Hiroko and her Oku has done a great job at it. Although you have just articulated a solution to one of the one of my biggest beefs with horr- Oku, which is that every month. I get a Bill for a bunch of her Oku projects that I keep running because I I like my tinkering and my projects that nobody uses because somebody someday like I'll make them useful. Right. I'll make them popular and whatnot. But until then I pay whatever twenty bucks a month for node or something because it's not quote, unquote, server less one of the features of server 'less is that it spins down when you're not using it, and you get to just pay for what you actually use. Tell me more about how you accomplish that. That's great insight to Roku. Indeed did a great job for what today we could. Call server full, I suppose, which is would you deploy to Geraldo is a server in our face is not even just managing the servers as machines, but the interface that you give them in. They give you sort of. I'm gonna run a process, and I'm going to put a server inside in that server can accumulate towering complexity light, it just gets bigger and bigger and bigger. So would that hurts you over the long term with disabled of spinning down spinning back up really quickly. Which is what you just mentioned the best feature server LA's, in my opinion is twofold, one is that scale zero in scale to Infinity aspect, right? So if your projects not being accessed it just at zero copies of it. And then for every request that happens concurrently. More copies of it are issued. So if you have a traffic spy, or, you know, your website becomes very popular that's handled very sort of by design one of the things that enables this is that when you go from zero to one has to be very very fast, and that's worthy now platform guide. Seal a lot by Michigan. His view of the builders say, hey, when it us, no jaaz. We do a lot of work under the hood to make sure that when you're spinning up it's instant. So the end user once again, we're always thinking about this end user doesn't have to wait around for -application in the beauty of it is that you end up paying only for those hundred millisecond intervals of compute that are actually being utilized in thing about this from the development, process perspective, right? When developers are testing and building in branching off in collaborating. On software. They're costly gonna be making deployments as said we make one for every push. So of all of those we allow you go back in time in click on any of those links and see what her application was like before we allow you to do real time reviews, but then over time, although supplies just wind down and on cost you anything. So I think that's one of the most remarkable features. Because server LA's is also helping not just, you know, lower your out spans, not just make you more productive. But it's enabling entire categories of collaboration opportunities that really were awesome before I think the objection before would have been oh my God. I have so many versions of my application running that I can literally not even imagine the sparkle. So that's kind of the most exciting thing about Silverlake semaine. In addition to that. I think there's this idea that you've probably have heard of the functions as opposed to. Servers and you've brought her to function service in in salon. The interesting thing about service until now came along was he I don't really think everything about how you wrote applications. So before you were saying, oh, I'm going to spin up a node server, and then you had to go in late create learn about this land that API for example, and those two things really really different. It's almost like he had relate rethink everything that you knew about software engineering at some point, however would realize enumeration does the high level cloud is that we could compile down to this function primitives..
