One of the best documentaries I have seen this year. I am not what you’d call a fan of Sriracha, though I use it occasionally in my dishes (usually to cover a screw-up). But this movie is not just about the sauce, it is also about America in some sense.

Available on Amazon Prime and Youtube.




All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be the blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

~ J.R.R Tolkien

Bringing Edison to Docker (or vice-versa)

Here goes a nifty docker commit to introduce three scientists to the docker container name pool

Andrew Wiles, Thomas Edison, Florence Nightingale.

You should see the names of edison, nightingale, wiles come up in your containers (merged into docker:master but not sure which version release will have it)

I noticed:

From the commit file,


– Description for the changelog
Add Andrew Wiles, Florence Nightingale, Thomas Edison to container names

British mathematician Andrew Wiles is notable for solving Fermat’s Last
Theorem. Florence Nightingale was the first female inducted into the
Royal Statistical Society. Thomas Alva Edison was a prolific inventor,
noted for inventing the incandescent light bulb, the phonograph and the
motion picture camera (among many other).

I have to say that this talk by Torvalds (see @ 16:24) and the recent Dockercon ’16 at Seattle were the prime motivators.

One of the sweetest moments I look forward to in my day is an email from my daughter. We have this contract – she needs to send me an email listing out top 3 things in school. The conversation that ensues is usually priceless. A screen-grab from yesterday.



Brilliance from Brain Picker, today, 28 Feb 2016.

One realizes that human relationships are the tragic necessity of human life; that they can never be wholly satisfactory, that every ego is half the time greedily seeking them, and half the time pulling away from them.
