  1. George Lakoff: Don’t Think of an Elephant

    George Lakoff talked about his book Don’t Think of an Elephant: Know Your Values and Frame the Debate: The Essential Guide for Progressives, published by Chelsea Green Publishing Company. He described the elemental differences between conservatives and progressives and traced the differences in political ideology between the parties to differences in the idealized family model. He said conservatives follow a "strict father" model while progressives follow a "nurturing parent" model, basing his findings on research he has conducted as a linguistics professor. He used the differences in these two models to "reframe" reactions to many current issues, such as Hurricane Katrina, Terri Schiavo, abortion, gay marriage, and the recent Supreme Court nominations. After his presentation the author answered audience members’ questions.

  3. Turning Side Projects into Profitable Startups

    The book is now out: https://makebook.io

    Presented at http://dojobali.org, thanks to Michael Craig and Haren Tambi for hosting!

    The popular narrative of startups is outdated. You don’t need venture capital to build a startup. You do need a DIY attitude, a lot of persistence and become a generalist who can learn new skills like coding, design and marketing quickly. This way of building a startup is called bootstrapping and it’s the coolest way to do it I think.

    The 7 stages of creating a startup:

    6:58💡 Idea 11:58 🛠 Build 14:50 🚀 Launch 20:15 🌱 Grow 26:18 💰 Monetize 33:20 🤖 Automate 35:48 🚪 Exit

    This is straight from my book that’s coming out this month called MAKE (http://makebook.io/) for $30. Don’t worry, this book is only 1% of my income, so I’m not a bullshit artist telling you to buy my book. I am doing fine without it! Thanks!

  6. Oral History of Dave Cutler Part 2

    Interviewed by Grant Saviers on 2016-02-25 in Medina, WA X7733.2016 © Computer History Museum

    Dave Cutler (Microsoft Senior Technical Fellow) reviews his youth and never having touched a computer even through college. He then joined Dupont as a technical writer and became interested in developing a GPSS application for a Dupont customer. That led to his volunteering to fix bugs in EXEC-II operating system on the Univac 1108 at Dupont Research Station and his first exposure to computer operating systems. Knowing that computer operating systems were what he wanted to do, he then joined Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) and developed several versions of the PDP-11 RSX-11 operating system and a PL-1 compiler. He was a key member of the VAX architecture development group and led the development of VMS including doing much of the coding himself.

    Frustrations with DEC management indecision about the future of processor architectures and operating systems led to his establishment of the DECwest Research Center in Seattle with support from Gordon Bell. Dave assembled a large team to develop a VAX successor to RISC machine and VMS successor operating system (Mica and Prism).

    Subsequent to DEC cancelling those projects and some efforts with his colleges towards starting his own company, Dave join…

  8. Oral History of Avadis Tevanian - Session 2

    Interviewed by David Brock, Hansen Hsu and John Markoff on 2017-04-17 in Mountain View CA, X8111.2017 © Computer History Museum

    In part 2 of the oral history with Avie Tevanian, Avie discusses his career at Apple, first as Senior VP of Software Engineering and later as Chief Software Technology Officer, along with other topics after his retirement from Apple.

    Avie begins by discussing how the acquisition of NeXT occurred from the perspective of NeXT, including the OS bakeoff against Be. Avie also goes into his personal relationship with Steve Jobs over the years, what it was like to work with him, and how one might convince him one was right. He then moves on to discussing the early years of the turnaround, working initially under Gil Amelio and then under Jobs, and Jobs’ return as CEO of Apple. During this period, Avie’s main priority was to turn Apple’s software group into a world class development organization and to direct key technical decisions in the development of Mac OS X, sometimes over the objections of entrenched interest groups at Apple, such as the decision to embrace TCP/IP and other open standards over continuing to use Apple proprietary technologies. Avie also discusses collaborating with Jon Rubinstein’s hardware division, Apple’s ups and downs in the early 2000s, the transi…

  9. Oral History of Avie Tevanian - Session 1

    Interviewed by David Brock, Hansen Hsu and John Markoff on 2017-02-21 in Mountain View CA, X8111.2017 © Computer History Museum

    Born of Armenian parents in 1961, into a working class, entrepreneurial family, Avadis "Avie" Tevanian grew up in New England, the oldest of four boys. His dad a machinist, from a young age, Avie and his brothers were into building things, but Avie alone showed a particular aptitude for mathematics.

    Having been introduced to a PDP-8 in high school, Avie enrolled at the University of Rochester after discovering they had a lab of Xerox Altos, on which he wrote several games and contributed to research. Avie continued on to graduate school at Carnegie Mellon University. Working under Professor Rick Rashid, another Rochester graduate, Avie started the Mach microkernel project, which quickly grew to over a dozen people. Based on concepts from Rashid’s Accent operating system, Mach was to be an improvement on Accent by targeting parallel processors, be highly portable, and be able to run BSD Unix programs.

    Engineers at Steve Jobs’ NeXT Computer decided they wanted to use Mach for NeXT’s operating system after they saw the work presented at a UNIX conference in 1986. Avie later attended a dinner in Palo Alto where Steve first relayed that interest. After finishing …
