is there any term I hate more than "serverless"

@cwebber wait for cloudflare to spread its "originless"

@valerauko I don't completely hate blockchain, it's a chain of blocks... though I do hate that nobody agrees on what the minimum of blockchain is that's not also just "merkle tree"

glad to hear you're either abstaining from computers or (more questionably) are running things peer to peer

@cwebber as Nelson pointed out, if you run salesforce (“no software”) on serverless, you’ve finally achieved maximum computerlessness


> abstaining from computers

some folks do it for Lent, I hear

@cwebber I like this term because it gives me an opportunity to talk about mesh.

@cwebber there's no such thing as serverless, just other people's cgi-bin directories

@cwebber "full stack" is up there but not quite as bad

(unless of course it's used to mean "I know how to design my own PCB")

@technomancy @cwebber "full snack" is when you go so far overboard on nachos that you skip dinner

@cwebber AI? Blockchain? Industry 4.0? (The latter is quite specific to Germany)

@cwebber from previous bitter experience with "cloud" and "IoT", i knew as soon as i heard and loathed it that "serverless" would probably be a resounding memetic success and annoy me for years or decades to come.

@brennen @cwebber

You can't go offline from an in person meeting.

/me grumbles about business folk misappropriating a word.

@clacke ;)

It appears you have crashed. Attempting to power cycle by providing a beverage.

What do the business folk mean when they say "go offline"?

@clacke the phrase is "lets take (topic X, which is frequently a digression or tangent) offline" which means lets talk about it privately or with a smaller group later.

In my opinion the phrase "lets talk about X later" would work just as well

Oh! Interesting.

Next time respond: "Don't you mean off-list?" 😁

@cwebber you'd have a lot of fun down here at AWS re:invent...
