Thursday, February 13th, 2014

Just got off of the phone with Jim Dude.  He is quite a character and I will be talking to him more.

Asterisk was a functional concept, but had no real way of becoming a practical useful thing, since it didnt, at that time, have a concept of being able to talk directly (or very well indirectly for that matter, being that there wasnt much, if any, in the way of practical VOIP hardware available) to any Telecom hardware (phones, lines, etc). Its marriage with the Zapata Telephony system concept and hardware/driver/ library design and interface allowed it to grow to be a real switch, that could talk to real telephones, lines, etc.

Diamond Child – I like how its constructed simply yet the end art plays well.

95 percent of all your ideas are crap even though they seem great!

Saturday, May 24th, 2008

Think you are a moron half the time?  Believe me its much more than that.  I have studied this……..if you are lucky………5% of your ideas are actually good.  The other 95% are absolute non-flyers.  Even though they seem REALLY good.  I do not care how liberal you are or how good your intentions are.  Most of them are a load of smelly dung.  When you test them……they suck for whatever reason they just absolutely do not work.  You might say "what a waste!"  But not really. Because the 5% makes it all worth while.  Remember humans dwell on the positive. You use the 5% in the following fashion ( 0.95) ^Nth power -> decays to zero in other words humans keep the good ideas and toss out the bad so it appears EVERYTHING appears to work even though 95% of your ideas really sucked ass.
