#instaArt (at The Morning Times)

Whatever you now find weird, ugly, uncomfortable and nasty about a new medium will surely become its signature. CD distortion, the jitteriness of digital video, the crap sound of 8-bit - all of these will be cherished and emulated as soon as they can be avoided. It’s the sound of failure: so much modern art is the sound of things going out of control, of a medium pushing to its limits and breaking apart. The distorted guitar sound is the sound of something too loud for the medium supposed to carry it. The blues singer with the cracked voice is the sound of an emotional cry too powerful for the throat that releases it. The excitement of grainy film, of bleached-out black and white, is the excitement of witnessing events too momentous for the medium assigned to record them.

In a Minion State of Mind. Today, I got called a “minion” on twitter, told i was being passive-agressive and told I had been sucked into the Borg by the so-called competition - I must be doing something right.  Oh, and by the way, I’m not passive aggressive , I am aggressive. Get over it.

On Lowering Barriers to Open Source Contributions


This past week, the OpenShift Origin repository on Github saw some major code merges from external contributors that added MSFT .Net functionality to the OpenShift Origin platform. Thousands of new lines of code were tested and merged successfully into the OpenShift Origin codebase, which was then instantly made available for anyone to download and deploy.

The merge of the .Net code base showcases how successfully the OpenShift Origin community has taken advantage of GitHub’s social coding services to help establish an agile and open development process. An excellent Contributor’s Technical guide for getting started is available within Origin’s documentation section.

Aside from making OpenShift technically easy to build, develop, and test against, Origin’s open community culture also makes it easy to collaborate together efficiently. The culture has evolved from a number of historical Red Hat collaborative practices that give the community a very productive efficiency and make it more agile.

At Red Hat, we believe it is important for future growth and adoption of open source projects to have vendor-neutral meritocratic processes, and proper intellectual property management in order to succeed. This is why we have chosen Apache V2.0 license - And, why we have chosen NOT to require contributor license agreements (CLAs), or to establish a foundation. These choices often raise a few eyebrows, so I thought I would address these issues with the help of Red Hat’s legal advisor, Richard Fontana in my post this week’s on OpenShift’.com here.

Red Hat announces .Net Support for OpenShift PaaS

image Since Red Hat launched their award winning OpenShift Online public Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) service three years ago and OpenShift Enterprise private PaaS in 2012, customers have often asked, “What about Microsoft .NET apps on OpenShift?” They listened, and announce today that they are collaborating with Uhuru Software to bring Microsoft .NET and SQL Server capabilities to OpenShift, as an open source community-driven effort in OpenShift Origin. OpenShift Origin is the upstream community project that drives innovation for both OpenShift Online service and OpenShift Enterprise product. Read more here.

Still incubating 3 years later? Maybe it’s time to hatch a new plan.


Controlling application sprawl within your organization can be a daunting task - especially with today’s constantly-evolving and ever-increasing proliferation of languages, frameworks, services, and data stores. IT Managers and operation teams must deal with the day-to-day realities and challenges of IT, as well as meet developers’ demands for access to tooling that will help them produce, delivering reliable results to customers.

The rise of the Public PaaS (OpenShift Online included) has granted developers access to new levels of freedom when selecting a language, framework, and set of services, or data stores that are a ‘best fit’ for the task at hand.

Sometimes, it can seem like a never-ending battle. — In the past, application sprawl was managed by enterprises by “standardizing” or “locking down” the range of languages and technologies that developers were allowed to utilize. This enabled IT operation teams to focus on specific of technologies that they could support and meet their compliance and uptime commitments. Read More Here
