Changing CPUs != Getting Laid


Great talk! Don Box mentions in his talk that “people who get laid don’t change CPUs in their PCs”…

But besides this witty comment, Don’s talk was great. He overviewed lessons learned from past and current technologies. He compares how objects revolutioned programming to how integrated circuits revolutionized electronics. Further he goes onto say how service-based architecture will/is changing the world of coding today to how today most people prefer to go buy a new device instead of upgrading existing devices (when was the last time you installed a PCI card in your computer?). He makes an excellent point.

    :-( It’s sad but true… hehe

    I don’t think the comment "people who get laid don’t change CPUs in their PCs" is very accurate.

    I most definitely have to disagree with that comment.

    I even know a girl with panties that say "I love nerds).

  4. me says:

    what about the girl with no panties?

    PS. Do you really think you can be a software legend like Don Box and be a socially adept sex god? The kind of mind needed to be super-guru implies all kinds of semi-autistic obsessive tendencies which don’t translate to getting laid (i.e. getting laid in the sense of being able to go out and get laid on a Friday ngiht, not simply doing it with the geek girl you’ve been with for 5 years and spent weeks searching for).
