Words of appreciation after my first interview since 2009… => @BizMonger

F# maven Scott Nimrod is on a high-tech rampage recording interviews for his YouTube channel, deliberately mixing tech and humanity for a wonderful collection that I find wonderful. I assume that my interview with Scott is my first interview on his channel (in spite of my history in these situations):

So, just in case my first interview is my last interview, I went with more humanity than tech. I drifted into a stream-of-consciousness style rant that I am sure Scott understood (at least the intent) but would not be surprised that millions would consider it crazy talk.

The table below will attempt to summarize some of the references I made just in case my crazy is less crazy than your crazy:

Why I failed to talk to Carl Franklin about ‘Race’ in the IT (Information Technology) World…

One way to step away from reading this 2011 Blog post is to understand that Scott finally provided the ‘correct’ context for me to talk humanity (“race”).

Alan Moore on Magic

I bring up Alan Moore to demonstrate that Black people are Black not out of ignorance of things not Black—and to make my point at the same time.

Kobe on @WSJ

This tweet leads to an interview with Kobe Bryant that I think is filled with the racist subconscious but folks like Scott can also sucsessfully argue that no racist intent was present.

Oshay on Marques Brownlee on the imprint

This tweet leads to a YouTube video about @MKBHD theorizing about how he would received in “the Black community” of the United States.

Dr. Peter Chen: Entity Relationship Model – Past, Present and Future

I will keep mentioning Dr. Peter Chen until traditional Black historians finally see his importance. This may take a while…

My Three Sexist Assumptions of the Apocalypse

I wrote this article in 2007 and will likely go to my cremation urn before anyone will truly engage me on this subject matter. One of the many threads in my interview with Scott was of gender issues.

Famous Passers

I brought up the subject of Sidney Reilly to respond to Scott about why the study of history is important to me.

Day Path

This is my tech blog, started about four years ago to “cleanly” separate my “politics” from my technical interests—and to get away from WordPress because it is a “retro” (and non-Microsoft) technology.

I really do look forward to being invited to the Scott Nimrod channel again to talk more about tech with sprinklings of humanity.
