"I don't understand what that means Gabe, but I know that they had a Delorean flu in GT online, and I need to get back exactly. I need to get that one, I guess, all right. So that's what's happening. Obviously, march 15th a big deal. Obviously GT online continues to make money hand over fist. And Gabe, I would be lying if when I got excited reading this, I didn't kick myself of, oh, right. And if I had been if I had been going into GTN line for like the past what, 8 months or whatever, I could have been getting a $1 million a day or a month through PS plus. I'm like, fuck, I really should have done that. Missed out on that one. I really should have done that. But it's too late now. And it doesn't matter, because that's GTM line. That's great, whatever. Let's talk about what's next because in the same blog post, they write what's next. With the unprecedented longevity of GTA 5, we know many of you have been asking us about a new entry and grand theft the Grand Theft Auto series. With every new project we embark on, our goal is to always our goal is always to significantly move beyond beyond what we have previously delivered. And we are pleased to confirm that active development for the next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series is well underway. We look forward to sharing more as soon as we are ready. So please stay tuned to the rockstar news wire for official details. On behalf of our entire team, we thank you for all your support and can not wait to step into the future with you. Gabe, it's a sentence that launched a million tweets we are pleased to confirm that active development for the next entry of the Grand Theft Auto series is well underway. What do you think? I think it's gonna be one of those weird times that we're gonna have a GTA 5 and GTA 6 in the top ten selling games. You know what I'm saying? GTA 5 still pops at the top ten. And so you're like, I mean, I just can't even imagine what the longevity that we've had with GTA 5. What in the world you even do with GTA 6? If it's even called GTA 6, if it's not called GTA something something something. You know what I mean? That's just so exciting. And that's where it gets into this, and I'm not a smart man, obviously. But where you get of how do you handle this, right? Where GTN line is beloved by millions and has made rockstar money hand over fist over and over again. I don't see how they would ever kill that golden cow. You know what I mean? Kill that golden. Absolutely. And so are they eventually going to do whatever they're doing with the PS5 Series X version here of GTM line? Is that going to be such a dramatic difference and run so much better that that is what's going forward and they are just going to use that as a base because you would have thought at least in traditional video game publishing. That GTA 5 came with GTN lines. The GTA 6 would come with GTL and two or whatever it's going to be. But I'm totally novice at GTA line. I have no idea what it looks like right now. Barely know what it's going to look like in March. So I'm not sure if that client will be to such a degree that that is what's going to support the next ten years of GT online or not. You know what's crazy is that I never so you know how we've kind of seen war zone in the Call of Duty franchise kind of live a life while they release other call of duties. For sure. I wonder if that's something that they'll be able to do. Obviously, everything's gotta step up and kind of be brought to modern tech, but I don't know how you get rid of GTA online. You can't just say this is a new one now, right? I mean, I think you have such an install player base. You can't go. It's GT online too. Not to mention that that doesn't make sense when you look at a game like World of Warcraft, right? When you look at the DC Universe online, the way they do episodes and stuff like that. Yes. I don't know when rockstar looks at that. We're going to transition over. So I'm really fascinated to see if GT online PS5 Series X is such a step forward. It's such a new beast that you're like, okay, I can see syncing all this time in there because there's going to be a wealth of content that I haven't played and then millions of others haven't played. So it does make sense that you launch GTA 6 and I've seen so many people going, maybe this year, like how far into development, are they? They finally confirming it, which rockstar doesn't usually do, but then they're not confirming the usual rockstar way. Here's a flashy trailer. So it's like, where are we in terms of getting it? And when you get it, do you just get inside of voucher code for GTN line and a bunch of bucks? And that's where they start you. I mean, that's what I would think they would have to do. You can't be like, here's a new thing with a whole brand new I don't know, man. Like you said, when you bring up a World of Warcraft, that's the exact same thing I was thinking was.

"He is doctor Kevin Roberts. He comes from the Texas public policy foundation with his Sterling record and he is now the big man at heritage, doctor Roberts. Welcome to America first. Seth, thanks for having me. It's a pleasure, my friend. All right, so you bring a very, very strong reputation for being a serious Texan on the issues of conservativism. We are huge fans of Ed fuller, full disclosure. My wife is a director at the heritage foundation. We are close friends with K cost James the outgoing president who is a rockstar been on the show several times. I just want to give you a platform in front of 3 million patriots. You mentioned three or four big priorities for you. I was a strategist in The White House. You can't do strategy unless you prioritize things. You can't fix everything at once. So tell Americans across the country, what heritage is new priorities are under your leadership. Number one, education. And by that, I mean, if we in the conservative movement don't take advantage of the absolute frustration that Americans, including some of whom are apolitical have with the indoctrination in our schools, we've missed the opportunity of a lifetime education number one. Number two, big tech. It is past time as you know from your experience for our institutions starting with the heritage foundation to recognize that big tech is the enemy of the state to name them as such and to develop policy reforms as a result. We have the definitive set of solutions coming out in the next days that will describe that. And thirdly, China. I like you understand the threat that the Soviet Union was to freedom to Americans to people around the world. I'm a son of the 1980s. We have failed as a country to recognize and to name China as the same kind of enemy that the today that the Soviet Union was then inherited is going to be leading

I'm pulling from a post on rockstar's website that is titled a note from the rockstar games team, re Grand Theft Auto the trilogy, the definitive addition. It reads like this. Hi, everyone. Want to provide an update regarding the unexpected technical issues that came to light as part of the launch of granted auto liter trilogy, the definitive addition. Firstly, sincerely apologize to everyone who has encountered issues playing these games. The grand to auto series in the games that make up this iconic trilogy are a special to us as we know they are to fans around the world.

Beto O'Rourke Steps Into Texas Gubernatorial Race Against Abbott in 2022

"The Democrats have an agenda to try to turn Texas blue. They keep saying it's going to turn blue. Big news today, beto o'rourke, he's back. Running for governor challenging Greg Abbott, let me get the dean of Texas talk show hosts responds to that big breaking news. For those who don't remember 2018, beto o'rourke came out of virtually nowhere in El Paso member of Congress and managed to excite enough Democrats that he came to within two and a half percentage points of Ted Cruz, our biggest conservative rockstar. That was 2018. This is three years later. What's different now? Well, one thing he's running for governor and not for the Senate, the other thing is three years of time passing. The questions become, does he still have the same kind of moths to a flame drawing power for Democrats that he had three years ago? I think the short answer to that is yes. Democrats are naturally thrilled by the notion of having a rockstar like beto, run for governor. But you know what other kind of group beto energizes? Conservative voters. Who for three years have had a good solid memory of how crazy he is on the Second Amendment. In deeply wrong he is on boarders and the economy. He is saddled with the albatross of Joe Biden in this gubernatorial race. And so in taking calls on the fly about it, this very morning, I found two types of voters who were stoked that beto is running. Democrats ready to vote for him? Republicans ready to vote against him, so the key question is going to be which is the larger group. I think beto finishes closer to Greg Abbott, presuming he's the nominee. He does have competition. He finishes closer to Abbott than any other Democrat would have, but do I think beto is going to be the next governor of Texas? I decidedly do

And then my world changed in the nineteen sixties when this little band from liverpool came around and played on the ed sullivan show and i'm talking of course about the beatles. Everybody wanted to be a musician at that point. And certainly i did too and i formed a little band with mike. You know my friends and started to play.

How to Get Business Credit, with Ty Crandall

"How did you get into credit in the first place. Well the first company ever owned was a mortgage company. And i own did back in two thousand six seven and i just thought i was a rockstar like wow. I'm just not true entrepreneur to be seven figures pretty quickly. Apparently is like you know pretty easy to do. When mortgages were spiking like the same as seeing with real estate now and then i was there and road that out until everything collapsed and at that point i was doing jumbo loans. My entire segment of that industry went away overnight and we went from producing a lot of money to producing no money and not having an ability to produce. We couldn't even place loans. The lenders weren't even accepting loans for months in what we were doing. And then we'll be on. So i kinda went through this process building successful business and then being there and watching it fail and i like a lot of business owner personally guaranteed credit lines. Credit cards. didn't think much about it but then the problem was was started to go late on some things for the business. Those in showed up on my personal credit report in a couple of things happen and i hadn't accounted for a thought well if the economy shifts i've had hundreds of thousands of dollars of revolving credit i've gone. All this money in the bank will what happened at that. Point was both things went when that stuff started. Hit my consumer poor all my credit card issuers. Lower my list. What i owed that crushed by credit scores and then at the same time of the banks that i didn't owed money to for the credit lines to the business came in literally removed all the money from all my bank accounts naaman all set so people. Listen i'm going to interject for a second. That is really scary. That's really scary. When you're in a position of saying. I have this credit limit. What could possibly go wrong. They shrunk your credit when they lowered your ceiling and then suck money out of your counts. That is terrifying. Sure going over much happens in the credit system that credit bureaus get alerts when thanks change and what people don't understand is that there's something called the small business financial exchange and in order to be part of the small business financial exchanges to give get metality so all the major banks all the major credit card. Issuers are part of it. And what happens. Is they openly exchange information with each other whether it is or is not on your credit report so if you fill out an application for a credit card or for loan at bank of america well most people don't realize is wells fargo chase. They all have that information eating medial acceptable when you do so this even can help them trigger alerts when things change so if you have five credit card companies and you go late on one whether reports are a dozen than the other ones no and immediately typically than lower your limits and since available credit is thirteen percent of your score thirty score. I mean just your score overnight can go from seven hundred fifty seven sixty down to five twenty like it did and then your ability to use that credit to be able to rebound goes away. That's very real. What happens when you go lay on any accounts which is one of the reasons you wanna keep accounts putting on your business credit reports not your consumer but the second part was scary too because when they remove all your bank not even money. That's their right. You have checks written against so all kinds of of adverse consequences happened. All these checks bounced utilities. Are getting shut off. Things happen as a result of that

Anti-Racist Science Education

"All right today in the show. We're unsmiling what's not working in science education around representation and racism and how to teach science in a more inclusive way and idea from listener and scientists esther kunle yes so thanks to esther. We went looking for k. Through twelve teachers teaching at the intersection of science and racial justice at all grade levels. And i want to start with. Let me see a fears. She's a post doctoral fellow in the collaborative for stem education. And outreach vanderbilt okay. She's a black scientist. Helping out in science classrooms in tennessee. Among fifth graders at this one particular school she is a total rockstar to walk into a classroom. And they'll be like dr. Yeah it's me. It's me everyone you know know autographs thing. We lit up each others world. Our saying that let me see a drops into fifth seventh and eighth. Grade science classrooms like a real life. Miss frizzle okay. I'm not kidding. You she wheels the cart between classes clattering with beakers and different very interesting looking chemicals and students. They're so intrigued. They run up to her on our like number my wife just all that stuff and then when she's in the classroom let me see a doesn't just help them run experiments. She'll also delve into the ethics of designing an experiment. Okay she'll talk about how wrong. The tuskegee study was which is win. Scientists studied syphilis in black men and withheld treatment. Sushi's like introducing bioethics to kids as important part of the curriculum. Yup scientists are presented as very human herself included and her students can totally handle these conversations. We see what's happening with this generation with them protests. And they're speaking out and they're not having it they're not gonna they're not going to allow us to continue to destroy her and her point is that if science teachers can tap into that compassion and that curiosity and show the way that scientists have messed up. Kids might take up an interest in science. I love it and if we can't do that then we are gonna lose on. And i think it's hard were minority kids. They already don't see themselves as the teacher or the prisoners doing the science so that already kind of puts up a block of well. That's just what the old white main with crazy hairdo and so another thing. Let me see a does is named drop scientists of color as often as possible. She'll talk about astrophysicist. Did eisler medical physicist hadean ecole green astronauts. Joseph akaba and jeanette epps. She designed paper rocket lesson around them and this helps kids develop a mental picture of a career in stem beyond a doctor or a dentist. This is so cool because it's not just about teaching science history right. It's also helping. Students see themselves as scientists and for gretchen craig. Turner the next teacher. I want to introduce you to this. Level of engagement becomes even more important as students get older and start to get into their teenage years and develop their own opinions their own opinions about science. Yeah to be critical of it. Oh yeah that was not in my k. through twelve science education hers either. I don't remember a lot of writing or Opinions being part of science in fact it was very much i believe taught. The opinions didn't belong in science right that it was supposed to be a

What Is Your Back Catalogue Worth?

"What's asiapac. A low worth has an intrinsic value to you as well as the audience. You're creating for go back catalogue is when you create work. This not just focus on what's current but takes account of the longer term. It's content that pertains fairly because there's something universal and perennial about it in this way. Not only is it valuable to others. It also helps manual position in the marketplace. Currently there's a flurry of music. Artists alina back catalogs. The lives of bob dylan new young secure of done it even dolly parton thinking about pissing beat to be head so if you build an audience share content defines. Its home of your audience. Your back catalogue can also become something. That's desirable catholic. A work is your audience can always access. It's worth the grows and evolves alongside your audience. You can become a self replenishing goldman in times of new clients have improved that you'll someone who does the work and potential clients getting comfortable with your approach. A website that shares one or two articles every now and then feta video and if you four-page e books does not come across as high value however one of the back catalogue of regla audio writing and video content posted over a period of time suggests is a place of value to us on a u. at the media online in two thousand and twenty joe pelosi said to everyone but anyone michelle content if it went tomorrow. If not your content you have a problem a back cutler means you invite days that you share today but also track record that shows. You're someone who keeps and has kept on giving me never become irrelevant by choosing to rest for used in the past with touring on home to the ever-growing increase in streaming. We're seeing a trend for music. Artists selling the rights at back. Catalogues artists unrealized by a cashing. In on the value of songs they produce david as uk based rotea fund. Hypnosis is obtaining the rights to artists from blondie to mark ronson in the sky article musical journalist. David sinclair said. If you're talking with the idea if you're a rockstar. If you bob dylan you're thinking to yourself. This might be time. He's getting twenty using comp one year right that in a lump sum in sakir who sold the rights to one hundred. Thirty five songs to hypnosis. I'm humbled that songwriting. And given me the privilege of communicating with others being a part of something bigger than myself autism now handing over the word ridden and shed over the years for fake off certainly does not mean tied in this context. This story of selling bank catholics chimes with how we in the beats a bass bass produce work for an audience. It proves that when you work is relevant to others this more reason to keep going the blog articles you produced back in two thousand nine nineteen. Maybe didn't get many views when they were first published. But that doesn't mean the not value sitting within your overall bank of work similar to music artists. Your job is to keep plane so that you keep developing your audience when people find you they can then join the dots and get a more complete picture of y you share is relevant to them. Those articles that received little traffic into nineteen are important in the context of your overall efforts. A moment in time should not be your only anka booting up a back catalog of which shows in your work over time making it easier for people to make a decision on whether to buy or subscribe. Starting the a space that people can visit but also record of how you've developed in the music industry return longevity. What about you. How will you know wherever you're back catalogue is where something it won't be. The same. ballpark is bob. Dylan's three hundred million pounds. When he sold his six hundred songs universal music for how we find out. If what you share has worth you would. Immediate has been around every week apart from some short breaks since october. Two thousand thirteen almost eight years. Now here's why building a back. Catalog of content provides vani in both the short and long after the first one. Is this over time. People see the value provide be prepared to play. The long game is so important. I wonder where ought be now if i hadn't been producing content every week for you at the median. I reckon it would be somewhere where i am today when people recognize. Your work is something that they can get behind you have a license to develop momentum secondly it can support your wider efforts. Your back catalog makes it easier to introduce for new initiatives. The one thing that has remained constant from me has been my writing. This was the tree. I planted back in twenty thirteen and new branches of grown. It made introducing in person and then online live events easier. Don't think of the word you produce in isolation look at it as a way to connect your intentions and third lake is greater use beyond the immediate space producing a back. Catalog extend your scope by this. I mean what stance a piece of work in one channel can extend into other formats. For instance blogs have become talked topics for other people's podcast. One single article became a webinar in april. Twenty twenty on your first ten email subscribers the next point is that it becomes and it brings people closer or from people. The proof of the work. You've already done helps you by helping them. Make a decision go back catalogue in contrast to say tha that competitors whose output may be more sporadic demonstrates perseverance. Next point is that it contributes to sales while message of this. You the media online. That i'm talking to you now is not around selling your business based on your content. Your work can be indirectly related to revenue for instance. The world you produce can also present a way to sell products and services but in a way that isn't merely emphasizing for instance being a trusted business increases the impact. You can make and this links to one of the aspects of what the month of learning represents a recent podcast looked at the impact of trust. Next is your were becomes a reference and search to your back catalogue can become a place for us to take from an somewhere. Search engines recognize websites. We've over three hundred and eleven index pieces of work c. Two hundred and thirty six percent more traffic than no sign of not too many pages and this is ups ball. What this means. Is that the better. Your ongoing work is indexed. There is more for a search engine to look through and support your search rankings ultimately ultimately want visit us to stick around on your site for that you need to offer work they will enjoy and lastly grow from it. The more you practice delivering something the better you become by learning. How the audio space works. I've become a better speaker by sharing a short video every week for the of the media weekly email. I think become a better presenter by writing every week. I've become a stronger writer. Whilst as an emphasis on creating roughness never forget this contributes to your own personal development. Let's roundup similar to writing and sherry music. You just put all your effort into a once a year christmas. Oh you have to keep introducing new material. That can stand the test of time all comes down to having that ability to keep going is what you're creating talking to be worth. Something is what you're producing contributing to your overall message actions in commercial delivery to give you the freedom to play an experiment. Why if your entire back catalogue disappear tomorrow but people let you know what they show concern. You're back catalogue is your commercial worth directly and indirectly and it's important to keep on playing for the audience as you show up to it

"Be proud of the interest so long you know for me. You know this this whole time that we're in where america is. So polarized takes me back to my childhood and you know i grew up in segregation was a part of desegregation lift through jim crow and i remember crying days after days. Not liking the color of my skin. I mean just like not not even liking. that's right so so we just been conditioned like everyone else has been conditioned and the story that we have told ourselves because of the history of the united states of america is that we. We're not good enough. We're just not good enough and so we have to shift the narrative right I just think that you know one of the other things that you said in your book. I love this. Because i want us to talk more. About how even when we're really good They will try. And put us in the denies space or the us into corporate communications. Or and i remember when is in corporate that the the vp of hr He he was one of those who would say. Well you know you. Just you're so articulate and so into paean in it so he he wanted me to take a corporate communications job. And i was like those not a part of my strategy reminded but but so often we because of again those stereotypes we push to rules. That are marginalized. Yeah in we have to be careful. Is you know in your book. You also talk about betting on your brand. Yes you gotta know you bring yes. What is your one thing. So many people still struggle with that but one thing. I want to act what you're saying you can't do it yourself. You cannot do this work by yourself. You have got to have a tribe okay. Call it the personal board of directors. Call it the kitchen cabinet. But these people to be activated. Yeah they can't just be people that are sitting there that you say that you know and they might take your phone call. I'm able to text. You can text my mentors. i can text my sponsors. I can pick up the phone and call them. They will pick up the phone but they were. Mirroring that to me name pouring back into me. Every time i had some doubt should really be doing this because these people are pushing back hard on me. I mean it is getting ugly and what i kept hearing. Keep doing what you're doing. Keep doing what you're doing on the positive self talk is essential but you've got got to have it coming from the outside. Yes yeah so so you know. I believe in affirmations way your book is written. It's written in affirmations. And i have been talking to myself about that positive since i was a little kid. You're like convincing myself of my value of my worst of my opportunities for success. And until i think when you say take care of yourself. There is so much to unpack with that. But i tell you what if your head is not right. And your heart's not right and your plans. not right. you're sorta get jacked up. You get caught up into that to be quiet and get this money. And he ended his paycheck. Come and will also grab onto whatever they put in front of you. That looks good. And that's how we get to this deny conversation. Yeah you're touching on because so many of us yes it is important to us. We live it every day. The work you're excited to dive in and were for this global company and do this work. Yeah that's going to really great on your resume but unless you ask them really pointed questions or have a plan it can be a career killer absolutely on arrival because my question is this. How many chief diversity officers even into the ranks. Vp of diversity. Have you seen them escalated into pl roles now the x. c. o. c. o. c. finland reliable. You don't see it you absolutely. Don't see it and i would argue that. Even chief officers who report to the ceo yarn for the vast majority are not empowered with any authority. No have any impact on driving the culture. And so i think that that whole position needs to be rejai totally and i think that right now in in twenty twenty eleven four there are some forces in the world who would love to see us go back a hundred years even taken back at least fifty years but we're looking at the blue and ran man. We're looking at the blue and red hat and so You know this is why you know. This is my pet peeve. This is why we know your value and it's connected to gross strategy. You better position but when you are relegated now if you choose because you have a passion and you know it's worth that you have aligned your value system to know that you have the support. Then that's great that's great but but if if you're not as you said your book If you're being your best advocate like if you're not advocating for that stuff to happen and it comes along to read slide. Yeah us yes yes when when it does and even if you're looking for it you've got to ask the questions the bat and you gotta get the right answers. Say yes. when is my next careerstep. Am i going to have resources. That's am i going to be able to call on agencies and firms that can reinforce in bring me the data and the insights to really. Oh by the way. How serious argue about this. That's sending for the last person who was in this role who has gone by the way. Yeah syndicates sometimes Corporations indicate who is such a vp at brookdale an amazing woman. She was Being interviewed us e. Oh conference a couple of weeks ago for c.

This is a distraction from my strategy. But if you don't have a strategy if you if you might not right it plans right then you get lured and so right now with all the tap nghien world.

"The. Same time also my background in software development the little bit that I did for four years. You can't find every single bug. I I understand that so. You know sometimes like somebody's like somebody's glitches I've seen especially your GTA some of them relate not obvious who would even thought to do that like it's like you gotta go around the block three times and then put the truck in the garage but it's gotta be this truck and he opened rising close it and the opening any closer to go back around the block three more times. It's like who? Daughter that. Sat around and did that to figure out that glitch and then to you know what I'm saying like. As a software developer I mean you're looking for those goods but you like you're not going to find something like that because it is so obscure that is like. Nobody ever figured out now or if they do, it probably won't be a massive amount of people I mean granted in that nowadays. One person finds out is a massive amount of people but. For the most part. I mean I can't fault rockstar because there was a glitch in the system. Because like I said, he just can't find everyone at the same time. I I. Think I do agree I think the punishment was too severe maybe don't go back seven years maybe go back six months a year. Like you know resettled back because maybe they weren't able to figure out what you will laugh when when you started doing the glitch because depending on the global list, you know sometimes sometimes they won't you won't be able to find that information. So maybe say okay well, the GLITZ started getting exploited in February. So we'll go back and we'll reset everybody back to where they were in. January. And whatever you lost from there from between January and February that's on you. Right Because we are we're not able to determine assuming that's probably why they went all the way back to reset. You just reset you two zero because they can't determine win. But I think that's kind of unfair. 'cause like you said, people have bought stuff he has have paid for. The cools different things and all these micro transactions D- and that's kind of my fair because some people I'm sure have put thousands of dollars into this game and to reset them back seven years because of a glitch.

"This is rockstar's this is business rockstars I'm Britney when me and my guest today is even a saudade CEO of swaps bar even think so much for joining us today thank you for having me I really appreciate it chorus so for those not familiar with you in your entrepreneurial journey tell us a little bit about your background and what led you to start off by sure so I'm a natural entrepreneur firstly independent I come from a family of four kids where I was the youngest stars fighting for your way from Brooklyn New York so you have to be fiercely independent there is part of the culture yeah so just wanted to be an entrepreneur but I wasn't sure in what and so why I came by dentistry is because I saw it as an industry that's really behind medical like I saw that if you think about it it's a very systematic problem like if you think of supply and demand in a market place from a supply perspective there's dentists their sentence there's high Janice they're not that busy right except for in dental desert areas and all of that and if you think of the other side Americans do want to go to the dentist you look like you go to the dentist yeah I'm I go to the dentist but their key reasons why they're not going which are here time and price so they want to go this kind of supplier they're not going and so how do you fix this market right and so that caught that quandary really made me really interested plus the science of it I think the science of it is is super interesting yeah and so what is lost bars those are not familiar sure so where an oral health brands are taking a consumer approach to dental care and so in doing that we're actually going to the work places and we go to the work place says we show up either in your conference room in a vehicle or we just kinda lived there in a room yeah the dental office yeah and we're doing the dental services right at the work place so from preventive care restorative care and cosmetic care we're helping companies bring those utilization statistics up they can hit their health metrics and help reduce costs that's amazing and you went to Harvard you worked at Bridgewater associates tell us about how that kind of prepared you to be the CEO of a company I saw it that education was a clear path to the independent cell by being you know well educated working really hard and then being able to get into those top schools get those scholarships I needed came from humble backgrounds right I was able to gain the credibility to start a business but also just save up the money right like you can't just have an idea and go do it without any cash necessarily right some people do but I didn't have any low cash ideas yeah I'm basically so I was able to work in finance save up a bunch of money and then prove my concept so that enabled me to raise because your proof of concept right and you think that your time at Bridgewater associates kind of really prepared you to get that start up mentality I think so I really wanted to make my own culture and utilize a lot of the Bridgewater principles yeah that I'll and they're so by making us really tough there because it's such a unique environment right I mean truth transparency audio recordings and all of that thank you become a pretty thick skinned person and that was really cheat said entrepreneurship for me and so I wanted to have my own fiercely independent culture I wanted to make my a little microcosm of Bridgewater associates plus some tweaks yeah that I wanted I'd start my own company that's great and what was the first step you talk when you were serious about starting your own company did you still work and do it as a side project how did you kind of go about that well I thought about it in terms of you can't get distracted so I actually took a bat first where I said okay I got to get out of work I can't do this part time I work thirteen hours a day right covering oil markets like how are you gonna build a business right you're not yeah so I had an idea during work and then I actually had just because I went to business school and did my idea and that way I felt hedge those a little risk averse as a first time entrepreneur right and then from there I realize you can't really raise much money as a student right and so again I have to get rid of the obstacle and then don't go full force on the idea right you can't tell us about your fundraising process and how you got cold day as an investor sure so they reached out to us pretty early when we were tiny I mean we are tiny when you meet the threshold of you know any serious investments that they would make and so you know I lovely conversation but it wasn't it wasn't upset and then when it wasn't said we grew a bit you know from other investment opportunities that we're able to be much larger such that it actually made sense for them to invest so I guess the advice there is all right just because it wasn't a fit before it doesn't mean you can't go back when you know you fit the criteria absolutely and what are the challenges you face when you were first starting out and how are those different than the challenges you're facing today as your pet as your business continues to grow so I think at the beginning especially when you're an industry outsider you don't exactly know who to listen to right you're getting like I interviewed forty people in order to see if the idea is good and so you know one person says that US one person says that like they're both credible they're both experts all right make them talk to each other was at least something to do about that and like alright debated on out I'll watch for it and so that was first in terms of getting pendulums intend directions and advice like that works that doesn't work and so that's the beginning and I think the stager now at its scale and we're a very supply demand business making them ploys you the dentist you need you need the work places except right seasonal right no one does dental services during Christmas no one's there at the workplace and so balancing supply and demand to make sure you're utilizing your capital assets the best way and your employees and you recently acquired another company tell us about that yes so that was a nontraditional move definitely like a you know a large companies acquiring a small company requires an integration plan a smaller company acquiring a small company like that you know that's unheard of in terms of something to do pretty early but I saw the value in that because rather than go from seed around to a small series day given where we were I need a partnering up with another company that was raising I had a good team so I can get those people get that knowledge get those clients as well enabled me to leap frog to a larger rounds absolutely that's so amazing and a lot of wants our printers people who want to start grower funded business have an intense your failure sometimes and they don't want that they let that fear failure get in the way of actually starting their business did you have that fear of failure and how did you overcome that well I think about it this way like when your eastern European like the mentality is by thirty years older life and like you know you're kind of made it to their but if you think about it modern medicine's gonna make us live a long time I mean you know knock on this is what yeah knock on wood so this you know failing a couple times when you're young you've got such a runaway right I mean check out we're we're pretty healthy these days especially if you take care of yourself so it's not that big of a deal by thirty like it the whole thing plummets and then you make ten more right I mean stock to plummet again knock on wood right but I mean we've got a lot of chances in life and we've got you know not taking them I think it's a serious disadvantage absolutely and you're really disrupting a male dominated industry what advice do you have for female entrepreneurs or any entrepreneur who is kind of getting into a really heavy Lee heavily male or female dominated industry so I think about it last in terms of gender and I think about it in terms of age and then if it's age and gender it's a double whammy right as you know people are gonna expect you're not credible in something and then at the third one industry outsider right female young industry outsiders you know put that all together and so the main thing you need to do is to one do borrowed credibility just grab the expert take them with you right you know just use your resources and then the same thing be confident I mean confidence is the currency of the business it's the currency and media the currency and entrepreneurship and so it's especially also currency at work which circles back to the concept I mean if you're at work and you're not smiling because your smile shy then you're less likely to engage people right so it kind of comes together that way where you need to be well put together need to eat dressed like an entrepreneur and a serious person and then use the hacks grab the expert taken with you big deal right you know that's the current current disadvantage you have don't make it a disadvantage right I love I read an article that you were interviewed on where you said you know dress up dress the part don't you know don't come in wearing sweats and a T. shirt which is like the popular new start up thing to do and I thought that was so interesting so I haven't really heard that in a long time and I thought it was so important but what tools do you swear by that help you do your job I think fitness is really important so I use a lot of fitness apps nice I use this morning US seven which is a seven minute workout because you cannot be so lazy you don't do a seven minute workout for it cannot be so lazy and you cannot be so busy yeah but you do not get that in right so I think just being really healthy is important for the family in need and that's seven minutes really pays back so that and then trying to eat healthy I'd say I'm more sticking to the seven minute than I am eating healthy yeah but I think that's key and and we're not going to be you know five A. M. CO superheroes pumping iron right like I don't expect that of myself but I expect a baseline of fitness and health table of me to do my job yeah and how was it growing your own culture like how is the hiring and training on company culture process so that was interesting because you need to bring in you can't hire all by yourself right like I need to have someone with good culture to then test people for culture right so it starts being like a chicken and the egg scenario unless you're doing everything yourself so I think lining out a bunch of principles of the culture that you know I wouldn't use all of them that read daily has it right two hundred and twelve yeah I don't paste some from him there's some good ones I think trading some of your own is really important also in your own words like we use you know we find crying acceptable marks workplaces do not we don't courage crying all day but really don't be embarrassed right like no one cares not no one's taking score get it out and keep going yeah you know kind of making it I made it more blinds and last theoretical so that humans can really understand it better and adopt it quicker that's great if you could go back in time and give your younger self one piece of advice what would you tell yourself ice sticks to the career you want like part of me loves finance because it was really interesting and systematic but I always wanted to be an entrepreneur so.

"To do that but he just won't right you know. I'm I'd be more than happy to give him the platform to be able to do that but he won't you know there may be men that are listening and maybe they're starting to get an honor their skin a little bit like. Maybe I should be doing that more. And that's true you do but what. What would we say to someone? Who's listening that? Maybe their husbands not doing that. You don't want to Ha- you don't want to go back to the husband and say listen. You need to be talking about more to the about our kids in front of people and things like that. You don't WanNa be like that. You want to encourage that correct and support. That tried to to drive that forward allow for that But if someone is stuck in that situation where they don't they they currently are in a marriage where the father is just. The husband is just not doing that probably should be how. How would we practically work with them? In order to to hopefully have that manifest itself. So there's a couple of things that come to mind here one. Is that if the DAD is not comfortable speaking in front of an audience. Then allow the data write a letter okay and someone can read that or the child could read that in front of it because that's still the dad's voice. Yeah he's just Pandit and that even becomes even more sentimental because the child actually has something that they can carry on the rest of their lives. A legacy lead into the legacy enough time to count of Organiz his thoughts before the event actually occurs and helps him to really speak life into their child. So that's one thing that can happen in the end if he just doesn't like that communication deal the trust of the other things that we talked about like the affirmations and these are all these are all things you don't have to do every single one of every one of doesn't fit for a start somewhere and there's I mean social media. I know we don't. We don't always talk and and and Promote necessarily social media. We'd like real face to face social activity Almost always but I. I always love it when I'd see a post from Sonya talking about me as a Dad Jess Bash. Brian Man has just come out from nowhere or or anybody can post on your on. Your Wall. Happy Birthday. But someone's calling you a great dad because you're you know in gives you a reason that there's nothing almost nothing better nothing better. Or there's this organic picture That's been taken of you and your signs or you and your kids and it's been posted talking about chess. The Joy of having a dad present. I go so far so far for men. Yes so again. I love the exalting. His voice or creating a space or platform for his force to be heard awesome okay so legacy affirmation support and discipline exalt his voice and now we're at the are this one is retreat and that doesn't mean turn around and run the other way. This is a different kind of retreat. Yes so if you guys probably already know this by now if you Kinda know the way men tick they don't they need to go somewhere by themselves Every once in a while they need to go in at after. Get the name of the gentleman. We did a study with one time. He's a comedian speaker and he talked about what's called the nothing box and sometimes men because men are whatever differently. We all know that we're all wired differently. But men like to go into their nothing box and women if you're listening right now. It doesn't compute with you so you just don't understand why just it just know that it happens. Men like to unplug everything and go into their nothing box and basically what that is. That could be anything from sitting and watching a football game between two teams anyone. Could you know no one could care any less about the two teams on? It could be like you know twelve to three and it's the most boring football but the man. There's just something about being in their nothing box or you know. Insert Hobby X. hobby-wise here by himself. he likes to be by himself and there is something about that that helps to recharge. That helps that something in the DNA that allows that man to just feel better. I know so. The person that you're talking about is pasture Mark Gungor. Okay laugh your way to a better marriage and that was a great great study that we did together but it's so invigorating are remember oftentimes. I'll come home from work and Catherine will intentionally give me my space breath. She knows that I need that. Time to just unwind and just relax a little bit. So she's not the moment walking and she's not asking me to do X. Y. Z. She's I know you need your moment so take however long you take and and I'm conscientious of that else. I Okay I just need twenty minutes thirty minutes just to do that. So just those little small spurts of just me doing nothing. Yep Jess rejuvenates me. But also I love the space to where I'm just taking a data myself. Whatever that is whether it be like you said Insert X Y and Z. It may be playing tennis. He may just be hanging out with you Because hang out with another brother. Because that's rejuvenating we're doing right now is exactly what we're talking about. Believe it or not is not work for us to win this That this is part of the nothing box it is. Yeah but we're giving information when we're we're giving more than nothing right. I think so. Yes no I love that space and when a wife can be conscientious of that and giving the husband space that he needs to sort himself out to sort all of what he's been dealing with the entire day or the week and just allow him to kind of relax into himself before going into the next base. I think that that's awesome. Yeah Yeah we. We really hope that both men and women husbands and wives have been blessed by this conversation. We really want to hear more from you. Let us know on Social Media Facebook instagram twitter. Email us go to the website. Power Couples Rock Dot. Com is all kinds of ways to contact us with love. Hearing from. You would love to hear that feedback. I'd I'd love to encourage our wives maybe to do the same thing yes to to create a rockstar mom. Maybe we can talk about About doing that but anyway this these been the five ways to champion a rock star. Dad So you take away your laser. Take Away your laser focus for the five ways to champion. Rockstar. Dad Our legacy creating a legacy. That's spiritually. That's that's the pictures thing. Make sure that there's a that there's pictures with the husband and the kids an an encouraging them to do events together the A is affirmation. It's about confidence asking the kids. What they love about their dad and then sharing that Back with the DAD and in helping to affirm him as support discipline making sure. You're on the same page. The power of pause if you need that power pause pray over that situation while it's happening in e exalt his voice that's creating a platform for him to speak about his children. If the husband is not confident in speaking there are other ways to do that. There's there's there's letters there's there's social media and then finally our retreat create that space that nothing box. There's something about that in the DNA of a man that somehow it just it just powers powers him back up. And I like to just close my section of this by book ending Ed again with the Scriptures so for you all that neat though scriptures of gayness genesis two and eighteen being a suitable help before the husband Psalms one twenty eight which is a family blessing and then equations five twenty one through thirty three talks about the roles or sauce abilities respecting him loving between a husband and wife.

Podcast IF YOU WANNA get up to date news him and Lloyd Crime Cow. It's brilliant and what we're saying here is essentially some solid updates to a platform. That could be doing so much. And that's that's the thing. It's a solid platform. That can bring us so much damn content for such a low price and people people wind people known people I was GONNA use the words bitch them when you use the word bitch because all of a sudden you've got to you got to buy the Games and it's not like a net flicks service like they thought it was going to be doesn't have to be it. Should have to just be a platform that you'd be able to play these games as of right now. I've just claimed a free name called grid. It's a racing game so I've got in my store. I do need to keep my my subscription going. Why haven't I haven't gone again looking at my store right now if things would. I've got great metro ecstasy destined to farming simulator tomb raider definitive edition and Borderlands. Three of those games in my store and the piffling. If you like the head last night is I can just play these games. I haven't got wait for download. I haven't gone away for an update their available to play when I won. Now yes there is the fear if Google you not stadiums of bunch of crap. Let's pull the plug was going to happen to my money. And what's going to happen to this? But isn't that a risk of anything in life? Currently look you'll steam libraries the the idea of owning things digitally as becoming more prevalent and as a massive library might address to think how many game four hundred two games steam library. If steam went under would lose all those simple as that must switch has gained installed digitally. You know it's it's not something that's just gonna. It's happening all around us. Yes I would rather have hard copies. I mean essentially. I've gone out and bought a record player of direct reply of Christmas and I've got records which is amazing but gaming industry music industry. Tv's films it's all going into the digital era and the stadium that kind of next step if you like into the digital era area so what was my experience. plying borderlands woodlands is quite poorly optimized game on any platform. I was getting a bit worried. Actually let's not about playing this I plugged controller and it seemed to ease the LAG INPUTS. Which is really strange. Does seem to stay to yourself for the whole control thing which is fine. I do prefer mouse and keyboard. When I'm playing shooters these days but it was called destiny to runs flawlessly on stadium. I've never had a problem destitute. Metrics looks gorgeous. And it's nice. I can choose tonight. Up If I had a four K. Tell You have a four k? Telly or can pick seven twenty. Now I stream out mile put seven twenty P so I play the game and seven twenty p. I probably wouldn't notice the difference so actually overall my experience with stadia has been good and I'm going to start covering stadia a lot more on. Skip frames because I feel like it's product that needs more support from from more people. I I you know home hands up. I've been critical. I have been critical of these products. I think it's definitely going in the right way. You've got X. Boxes X. Cloud as well that's a solid platform currently on the last time. I checked we only have one game available and it seemed to work pretty well you. You had a really solid platform as of right now. I'm literally going to up the X. Cloud streaming platform which I'll go into on android and our board over to Iowa's and Halo Master. Chief collection was the only game as a as I know was available but it works this whole streaming thing works. Yes carly still master. Chief collection is available so overall. I'm impressed I think it's a solid platform away to go away to jump in with people and that's my thoughts and opinions so they go back. I'd say about stadium so before moved on to other things I wanted to mention that rockstar apparently could be teasing a new announcement They've got a new logo on their site. And it could be a new grandma could be new bullying. I think it looks like if honest. It is quite futuristic. But we'll see so we'll keep an eye on that I just WanNa put it in their side at Rockstar. Rt's on things. Something is coming Graph I five is one of my favorite open world games to date. It's an amazing I mean they could be teasing a completely online experience with how like mammoth five online as but will say so G ROCKSTAR. Art Teasing something. What as I don't know I've got no clue what it could a. It's coming it's coming. Announcement is coming soon. So normally I would talk games normally. I would sit here and have a bit of Chat.

"Rockstars really Michelle right place when they are the co founders of things so much for being here thank you so for those who are not familiar if you could explain if it starts this officers is a clean comfort company we started out with baking offer Alaina mixes but you can purchase anywhere in the country that passes ago retail or online and then we also offer a subscription based kit offering that that you can get once a month in your house I'm a huge dessert lovers so love that it's a little less guilty or a little more guilt very very cool so where did the idea come from first food service by yeah children originally but I delete one hurdle came up with the original idea and there was always a pain point or a problem solving in this case she was pregnant with her second child and she knew that she wanted to work but she wanted to do something that would involve the kids and allow her self the time to disconnect and connect with her children so I she thought the kitchen would be the best way to do that and I came up with for crafting ideas subscription businesses are popular at the time but none of them are focused on treats and so that was the origin idea that's where it originally came from and that's gonna concern and they connect with me and our amazing brand killing I'm sorry great ideas come from solving a problem so in this case delete wants to work she loves to work and but how do you do that when you are raising a family I think this everybody's crazy busy lives you gotta find those times to really can act to making it easier but not taking away from the desk on something like baking exactly and also speaking to the modern consumer I think that I believe is really smart and noticing there's a hole in the marketplace but you look at a perimeter of a store and you see all of these just isn't coming out like to point out and button there's now has about ten of innovation in the center of the store and that's the heart of what we eat is better I own and really being able to stay as a modern consumer we want something that tastes good something that has better ingredients that's kinder to our planet and it's an affordable price and that didn't exist is it really was the one initially who saw that opportunity and and and and techniques are you know when in the marketplace and found out there was a nice white space where an idea could flourish also will coming up with capital is always a struggle for our entrepreneurs and I know that you guys have successfully secured funding so I'd love for you guys to share a little bit of advice when it comes to securing funding and that do your research before you go and find out what they've invested N. or look for people who have invested in either like minded people are like minded ideas are in a space that similar and then you connect with the audience you go into that room and you figure out what about your product whether it's tak whether it's you know an actual physical product what makes it means something to that person you're literally asking someone to give you their money and why and so you really have to find that commonality that is a reason for them to do it what that question that I would say make sure you have a destructive idea is that usually helps make sure you have an amazing patch tack and then have the spelling capability to do that I think when and and now Sir Machon we'll talk about it with the leaders have strong seven visors that raise money before and have all that I have a tool box they can guide you into the three things that are required that your idea of make sure that when you walk in and then talking investors there are like five people you know ten minutes ago tell me the same thing you know so that is a good idea and then on that tape stack that's where you're focusing your vision your strategy and you know how much money an array is where are you going to use the funds and it and there's so many great tablets out there from brands to raise tens of millions of dollars so find one of those decks use that as a template and populate it with your own stuff and then we'll talk about a practice in front of a mere actors in front of the harshest critics believe was did Dennis that target ask about I'm practiced in front of her kids who were the harshest critics and that will shape you and and make for a better and presentation and I don't think entrepreneurs are raising money ever go to that kind of level of record when it comes to resume and they come in with an idea and the chain reaction solid and investors turn off to it so he follows three guiding principles that seems to be a fact number that an investor here's how many pages a day yeah separate and everybody else and I was surprised to read that you felt that your career and background in Hollywood did not necessarily help you or give you an advantage to raising money there was a hindrance I think we had more to France definitely maybe help us get in the door and take the meeting as a novelty but then you have this huge mountain to climb over it definitely not an advantage well I love you guys are doing thank you so much for stopping by ensuring all your business insights really appreciate it thank you that we were rock stars business you are officially rockstars entrepreneurs learn something new every day but these nuggets will put you ahead of the game here's a few management tips that will transform you into a great leader I'm Alex really with a business rockstars minute number one be strong people have a hard time believing leaders who don't quite seem to believe in themselves second guessing your choices and actions one just negatively affect your own attitude but also those of your team number two don't let people fail for you take responsibility for both your successes and your failures don't blame failures on someone else for yourself three days sharp and being a great leader isn't about sitting back and barking orders as a matter of fact you should be the hardest worker at your.

"That looks easy on most people are like N P, what I thought let's actually put it out there on up in a browser. So I set up this code with rockstar dot come is the official Ruxton website, right? Like, but together, the, the documentation the language spec, did some pretty interesting. Thing. So the websites open source as well. It's all in the rockstar Lang Oganization on get hub. And I actually I what I ended up doing was using the get something what you will, to include the main project repo inside the website as a sub fold up because all the specifications or in mock down. And then using Jekyll and give her pages to pause, the mock down into ATM, and publish it. So we don't end up running different versions of the same spec falls stuff, which a little bit of fiddling, but I'm really quite pleased with without elects and stuff. Really, really nice authoring muddle, so. Yeah. And e c we get the I stood up in debt to the half an hour. The party unofficially launched rockstar, one point oh, and the certified rockstar develop a program. Now, this is this is real man come up come up and find me at a conference and show me on your phone that you've written rockstar, and I'll give you a sticker. And I, I have certified rockstar developers stickers. Which, you know that I carry around a bag of these things now whenever we go to events and talk about rockstar and people come up. And you know what I'm that the two things that I wanna get out of this. You know, one of them is, I just want people on the Lincoln endorsing one another as rockstar, developers, absolutely recruiters, stop because it is stupid. And it doesn't get anybody anything is undefined in it's ridiculous. I, I just I want every recruiter to know that if they use the word rockstar that just gonna get inundated by people like us, go numb certified rockstar develop. I'll get my stick sticking getting a job. That's got to be part of the commitment. Right. Is that you bombard your critters with rockstar certification? And why not you know not. I know that we can move onto ninja and wizard in all this other kind of stuff seeing the list of terms, we need to turn making the development languages just to, to puncture this whole process before we go. Can you recite a rockstar app for us? So let me hang on so, so the, the last thing I want to get out of this is I'm interested in, whether it is possible to create an album of songs that are so convincingly lyrical, somebody who doesn't know the joke doesn't realize anything's going. And it's kind of like getting those magazines. You know, that had source code in them back in the eighties that you'd actually sit and type them in, I wonder if somebody's gonna listen to that, and just type in the rockstar and see what actually compiles. Let me just bring up because one of the frustrations that I had with one point does that to make fizz buzz, you have to use the wood, fizz and buzz as literal things, which I you know, I kinda gives the game away a little bit because off Wei. Yeah. This thing at midnight, taking fire and desire, you shout phys. And everyone's like, well, why did he shout fizz? Right. Do with rock and roll. So I started thinking if I could add a raise to the language in such a way that you could instead of having to type phys as a string literal, you could inject the unit code values of the letters into an array one by one on the coast that into being list. And, you know, the classic arrived, the minimal feature set you need to work with a rise in a list, based languages pushing up and we don't like the pop rocks. This is instead of. Pau become rock and roll. So this is this is how you initialized to string variables with Fiz and buzz. So we've got a does a function heckled..

"And we're back Dylan Beatty's here with us. I'm Carl Franklin. That's Richard Campbell. And we're talking about his language at that started as a joke, and you can actually write code with it now. It's called rockstar. It's on get hub and you're talking about the how do you explain a language to a rock musician through, you know, through that thing? When people don't even know. What programming is? Yeah. It's the so the interest. How do you explain an ISA Tareq language of Paraguay to someone who doesn't know what a real real one is? Yeah. And you know, this is why we resort to the power of metaphor, and we try inside will you got this thing? And so here we go this thing. And it's the same idea just in a different different brain. And then the thing that kinda gave it a newly sieve life was it sort of went quiet, and we started working on, you know, some ideas for a an implementation all that and things, but on New Year's day January first this year we made a rockstar made the front page of read it with, like twenty five thousand up votes, and that was just it just kicked the whole thing over again. Like him whole new wave of people who didn't see the first time around this is the coolest thing Atta. And of course, this kicks off another wave of people on get hung on trying to write some rockstar, and I don't want what should happen here. Right. I'm I thought Anna how hard would it be to actually? Turn listen to something with a full meal reference implementation, and a test suite so one week inside this is how it works tryout you'll code hair, if you code. What's good in if it doesn't work, then that may be a problem? But also, you know, at least these people working on different implementations going, what's happening with the specification what's going to be in the next release on, like, I don't know. I I've now the project manager of Joe, can I hadn't realize that this was a position that you could achieve in life. But then we go. And so, you know, January the Sierra I thought, actually, I want to know how to do this stuff 'cause I built, compilers back in university, little toy examples and things Bill anything real.

So, you know, it kind of butts for about a month, and there was this classic rock magazine. Article is great. They kind of set. Okay. Imagine, we know nothing about computers. Explain what rockstar is. I'm like, how do you explain a parody is teric computer programming language? The non programmers. Do you guys know the band steel panther? No. So steel panther is a parody glam rock band that kind of it, it started as a joke, parodying van Halen and multi crew and poison and all his bands from eighteen with spandex the lip gloss on the hash. Brian hair ridiculous, ridiculous lyrics unstable panther literally started out as a pure parody of that and has sort of become a vice sellout stadiums now. And the one in the audience, I've seen them here in London, Wembley, no one in the audience is quite show, whether they of that as a joke. Oh not like it. It's going to appoint whether they've done enough, real songs. They are really talented musicians, but the lyrics are clearly ridiculous intentionally ridiculous. While begs the question that, you know, rock and roll itself is kind of self parodying, if you take it the right way, isn't. Absolutely. Yeah. I mean look at spinal tap, you know. Right. Spinal tap was a parody movie in which they cost. So the house recently spinal tap that movie was almost entirely improvised, by the cost who also wrote the songs and played the instruments and then went on a real stadium as the characters from the movies, right? Lang real shows to real audiences at which point you like this is not a comedy film anymore, but it's also clearly out what's real, and what is it at this point? Yeah. I hear them do interviews. I just heard Harry Shera do an interview in character on NPR. But you know, in a way that wind of love that because it's this whole blurring of boundaries. It takes away a lot of the, the indecision by ocean. I be doing the so not is this isn't like we'll knows anymore. And so, yeah, I took a the guys trying to explain rockstar, someone who's not a programmer is like one of explain why steel Panthers joke to someone who's never heard of motley Crue right and slight from from the outside they kind of look the same. But then once you start appreciates the new ones. You'll be like, all right. I sort of understand now why this is different on what makes it interesting. And why it's getting, but that's a great explanation to to a metal magazine like that. Well, you know, it's like if you can grasp what steel Panthers about the new understand why are the programmers reaction to rockstar? Exempt really quite a good explanation outside of software. Metaphor. So the only thing we got because the stuff that we make in software is invisible. It's all ads. Yep. There's no matter how well you organize the electrons. It's still tough to see them guys. Hold that thought while we take this moment.

"E A, T, E dot net. And on Twitter at Dylan Beatty. Welcome, welcome back. Hey, how you doing doing? Good. Rockstar. Speaking of good tooling, or is it? How do you begin? I remember the story that you told began with recruiters and recruiter ads that were always advertising that they had rockstar developers or wanted rockstar as that. Yeah, that's probably a good place to start, actually, is this whole. So anyone who's worked in IT. And this is very much a kind of English language thing, but throughout the English speaking world, that just kind of become this trope about this idea of rockstar develops not his. I can kind of relate. There is there is some code that I wrote in three days in two thousand and two that ran in production for fifteen years with no bugs in the maintenance. And, you know, you think I'm sure most developers have something, you know, something, they've done in the course of that Korea where it just, you know, everything was perfect. It was kind of perfect storm of productivity and tooling and requirements. And, you know, I, I understand where this idea of the Faouzi times develop of kind of the person who's, well, no, the idea of an insane difference in the order of magnitude of productivity. Right. Right. Tweet couldn't develop on a good day. And everyone else all the time. Yeah. You know, I don't really agree with us. This whole thing about there are people who are always amazing. There are people who always mediocre, you know, everybody we vary coding, is this creative process and the days when you just do not get in the on and you sit in reply to Email tells time ago home, and then you come back the next day off course. I see the problem in bang, you know, there art is, but yet, you know, this, this idea of the rockstar, developer and this that old d remember years ago. The what was it more Einstein on Elvis thing that? Yeah, the three different. I mean we're Sonos. Yeah. It, it was always vaguely repellent at the time. But today, especially like, yeah, we really really can't talk about people that way. That's not right. Mort was sort of pejorative for the nine to five developer who checked out, you know, promptly at five PM went home and didn't about code for the rest of the night, and an Elvis was the rockstar developer that was always the hero at date, you know at the eleventh. Hour, you know, checking in the code and making it all work. And what was the other one Einstein's Feinstein? Yeah. Yeah. The brainiacs. Yeah. You know. So you kind of have this, this whole thing, and this going into recruitment, you know, I'm sure you see if you go on the link ten right now all IT tech jobs, as you just type in rockstar, and you'll find these companies needed PHP rockstar full major agency website thing. Right. And the whole thing is, is complete crap in it. I have always found the use of this time to be wanted. Communicates, sort of massive misunderstanding in this perpetuation of the idea that, you know, if you just you keep looking hot enough, there is some, you know, Ruxton developer out there in quotes, who will just come in and solve your problem. Right. Sure. And, you know, I think it, it perpetuates a lot of you know, negative management practices. Male bovine fecal matter. Something along those lines. Yes. And you know, there's this thing lost you pull STA values the guy who created octopus deploy righteous, the climate system who else following on Twitter and he just he put this tweets out. This isn't like July lost yo where he just said, somebody should make a programming language called rockstar to confuse developers. And I just, you know, I sort of saw this an I chuckled a bit. And it sort of stuck with me, and I thought, you know, some somebody's got to pick this up and do something with it. And nobody did because this is the internet. I get that thing. I find this particular read it you'll see a post and you think sunny and you click in someone's already Fulton it, right? This is the internet. It's, it's however many three full billion people. Somebody has already thought of it, whatever it is horrifying..
