Dudmanovi podcast faded… no way… just a very long rest.

But he’s back with usual comments and reflections, and TBH mostly rambling on whatever comes to mind, as preparation would be just too much effort.

Feature – Media is technology, does it serve us

. Kind of important as its part of the motivation for me doing this podcast the way I am

  • Why am I doing a podcast
  • History of sharing and influencing (Family stories -> the press -> Radio/tv the end of talking, or perhaps the begining)
  • Profit connection and influence, it it takes too much time to make a slick product then we want to pay for it
  • Too slick can put off other people from competing or doing the same, good for big media, but bad for diversity and empowering others to talk and share usiung the medium.
  • Not to over complicate production or professionalism of this show KISS

Updates

  • Feed back
  • New member of the family sinze we lost our Bernadine last year…. Her name is Ronia
  • Cows gave birth to a Bulls each, growing well, still drink mothers milk
  • Arch update, updating every day, still nothing broken, but YMMV :) but looking into zfs
  • Fairwell Ivan, we loved you, and will love you still all winter, yes our Bull was butchered, marianted/curing
  • I did an HPR episode, I Love food, Good Food, was considering an episode 2 cover GAPS, but not sure its really computer hacker related and if there is any real interest

 Feature – Hacking, what is this you talk about ?

Well thinking this week what to talk about I thought I’d re spin the idea or interpretation of Hacking what it means to me, and how perhaps its received negative interpretations and I actually think it has a very general and broad interpretation and can be applied to all, yes all aspects of our life. I define it as “To understand well, by physically or mentally taking apart to see how the individual parts work, and putting back together with modifications of changes in the conscious hope that we make something better from it, and improve the tech”.

 

The photo is of some windows I’ve been hacking this week, about 10 years ago when I first tried making windows at our last homestead, I studied and took apart the old ones, and tried copying them with what I had. Back then I used only hand tools, but the amateur result worked well. Now I have some machines to speed things up, but the amateur results are still quite good, and whats more I’m learning things with my head and hands that can be applied to other aspects of life, so being richer for the experience.

Updates

  • Czech Songs sung by Faith, my bestest wife
  • Weather, has been windy and mostly dry, which is nice before winter hits
  • Two new pigs from our neighbors, to replace the two that will be butered this week in our big celebration, so lots of potatoes and whey to prepare for them.
  • Trying a new distro in a virtual machine, and learning alot. ArchLinux.org, am I cut out for becoming an Archer ?
  • On Real food, my wife found a great film that you can see for free on Hulu, or clips at youtube “Big Fat Lies” Fat head

 Feature – Grease/Butter for the machine ?

There are so many options, types and methods of keeping technology running smoothly. For example people often think that WD-40 is a lubricant and like to use it in many situations where it might work in the beginning but will actually dry the moving part and mean you need to keep adding it, actually creating a dependence or addition which always ultimately never satisfies or fulfills the promise it may make.

Well for the human body, perhaps the ultimate machine, that, given what it needs maintains and fixes itself, and even when two opposite sexed models meet in a quite place can make new models, which amazing grow and learn, simply amazing.

Well how easy is it to make Butter ? Why might you want to do it yourself ?
The photo is

Updates

  • Winter has retreated, we’re less stressed.

 Feature – Leadering ?

Part 2

Often something talk about, but who understands it, not saying I do, more a work in progress but what does it take to be a Real Leader ? How can we learn and practice in a safe way ? What to do with feed back ? If your leading something, and it doesn’t work ultimately if your a good leader its your mistake and your responsibility to fix… Yes this stuff is all Tech as well :) as there are techniques and tools not to mention systems and methods that can help us organize and solve the problem and be more successful in our attempts at leadership everyday a little better.

 

The photo is my son and just before the snow came this week we had deep fogs, you can just see the horses behind him, if you look real close.

Updates

  • Small calf is growing quickly, 2 year old bull has a few weeks left
  • Winter is here, snow
  • Future podcast on Real or healthy community and perhaps what it takes, connected with leadership
  • If this broader view of technology interests you, go a head and send some feed back, or join me on Mumble to speak or chat. Right now with few interruptions don’t worry about interrupting me.
  • One of the best technologies, Butter making, will do first batch since cow has given birth, have about 16 litres of thick cream ready.
