Changing the “culture” at a large company is impossibly hard, few get through it. And, it’s little wonder, you’re usually asking them to do completely irrational things.

We then talk about Elastic search and their recent IPO, and follow-up with some better commentary on Cloudera and Hortonworks merging - better than we did last week. Hotel breakfast buffet strategies and the Chase Sapphire series of cards. Oh, and before that Matt and Coté spend a good 10 to 15 minutes talking about hotel breakfast buffet strategies.

After some rumination, Coté thins that the people backing “serverless” are just wangling to make it mean “doing programming with containers on clouds.” That is, just programming. At some point, it meant an event based system hosted in public clouds (AWS Lamda). Also, we discuss Cisco buying Duo, potential EBITA problems from Broadcom buying CA, and robot pizza. Of course, with Coté having just moved to Amsterdam, there’s some Amsterdam talk.
