Marcello Simoni"Il castello dei falchi neri"Newton Compton Editorihttps://newtoncompton.com«L'unico legittimo erede di Umberto Eco.»Antonio D'OrricoAnno Domini 1233. Dopo aver preso parte alla crociata di Federico II, il nobile Oderico Grifone, ormai diventato uomo, fa ritorno alla dimora di famiglia, una grande magione nella campagna di Napoli. Il rientro, tuttavia, non è dei più felici. Sua sorella, Aloisia, è stata data in sposa a un uomo di dubbia reputazione, mentre Fabrissa, una giovane aristocratica con la quale Oderico, prima di partire per la Terra Santa, aveva intrecciato una storia d'amore, è promessa a un altro. Come se non bastasse, la famiglia sembra essere caduta in disgrazia e il castello, un tempo ricco e prospero, versa ora in uno stato di abbandono. Pur non riuscendo a comprenderne il motivo, Oderico intuisce che la madre, il padre e il fratello minore gli nascondono qualcosa. Qualcosa che riguarderebbe il feudo dei Grifoni, una collina sulla quale in molti vorrebbero mettere le mani a causa di un antico segreto custodito tra i suoi fitti boschi. Nel tentativo di risollevare le sorti della famiglia, Oderico resterà coinvolto, suo malgrado, in una serie di efferati delitti che sembrano avere uno stretto legame col più grande motivo d'orgoglio del suo casato: la nobile arte della falconeria.Ai primi posti delle classifiche italianeUn autore da 1 milione e mezzo di copieVincitore del Premio Bancarella«Marcello Simoni è uno spirito affine, un fratello.

The first chapter can make or break a reader's engagement with a story. We as writers must craft brilliant opening pages in order to hook those picky readers, so let's study the stories of others to see how they do it! When I first grabbed Haven by Emma Donoghue from my library's New Release shelf, I was admittedly hesitant because of my mixed feelings for her previous novel Room. Once I saw Haven is a historical novel featuring monks, though, my hesitation dissipated. I'm a big fan of Umberto Eco's Name of the Rose and the Cadfael series by Ellis Peters, so another mystery with monks? Sign me up! And as a writer, Donoghue packs a lot in those first five pages for readers. We open with an active abbey meal from the perspective of a young, hungry monk. We see the importance of the abbey to a community and the power the abbot enjoys. Yet there is an outsider visiting the abbey who, as the rumors say, is far more intelligent, far stronger, and simply far more blessed than any resident of that abbey, and this conflict reveals itself in a brief public interaction between the abbot and the outsider. It's a terrific setup for a number of possible progressions of plot, especially since we know from the book's blurb three monks are going to essentially be stranded on a small island. Will that be by choice, or by punishment? The worldbuilding, too, is artfully done. I mentioned earlier that we can see the abbey is a central part of life, but I particularly dug how Donoghue utilizes the vocabulary of the period with her prose so that modern readers can use context to know what she's talking about. This is one of the biggest challenges of historical fiction, and these early pages show that Donoghue conquered that challenge. What will you make of these first five pages? Let's find out!

Andrea Tomasetig"Maria Mulas"Milano, ritratti di fine '900Palazzo Reale, Milanofino all'8 gennaio 2023Le sale dell'Appartamento dei Principi di Palazzo Reale a Milano ospitano - fino all'8 gennaio 2023 - la mostra Maria Mulas. Milano, ritratti di fine '900, promossa dal Comune di Milano – Cultura prodotta e organizzata da Palazzo Reale e dall'Archivio Maria Mulas, con la curatela di Andrea Tomasetig. L'archivio fotografico contiene, oltre a reportage e lavori di ricerca, anche un numero imponente di ritratti – oltre 500 – di personaggi di primo piano delle arti e della cultura. In mostra ve ne sono un centinaio, giunti da una lunga esposizione al Museo Nazionale Slovacco promossa dall'Istituto Italiano di Cultura di Bratislava e frutto di una selezione che documenta lo stretto rapporto della fotografa con Milano e i suoi protagonisti nel trentennio che conclude il Novecento.Milano in quegli anni sta affermandosi come la capitale del design, della moda, dell'editoria, e non solo. È il luogo intorno a cui ruota un universo di talenti nativi o d'adozione, giunti da tutta Italia e dal mondo. Maria, arrivata poco più che ventenne nel lontano 1956 dalla natia Manerba del Garda sulla scia del fratello, li ritrae nei posti giusti e nei momenti giusti e ce li restituisce con una freschezza e intensità senza eguali, degna erede del fratello maggiore Ugo scomparso prematuramente nel 1973. Gli anni Settanta, Ottanta e Novanta sono per lei una girandola di incontri, Biennali veneziane e Kassel, allestimenti e inaugurazioni di mostre, presentazioni letterarie, feste e reportage in giro per il mondo. Ma il luogo d'osservazione privilegiato è sempre Milano che, come un magnete, accoglie e integra le varie provenienze regionali e straniere, ed è in quegli anni uno straordinario laboratorio di creatività e modernità che poi ritrasmette in Italia e nel mondo. Facendo della città il proprio epicentro, Maria Mulas ha mostrato come nessun altro il volto del mondo artistico e culturale milanese, italiano e internazionale.Sono centinaia e centinaia coloro che sono stati ritratti da lei: artisti, galleristi, critici, designer, architetti, scrittori, editori, giornalisti, stilisti, registi, attori, intellettuali, imprenditori, amici. Un elenco dettagliato ne riporta ben 539, dalla “A” di Claudio Abbado alla “Z” di Franco Zeffirelli. Non meraviglia che il Comune le abbia dedicato nel 1998 una grande mostra sempre a Palazzo Reale, consacrandola come “l'occhio di Milano”, e che oggi la celebri nuovamente come la fotografa che - pur appartata rispetto al circuito delle gallerie e del mercato dell'arte - ha colto l'anima profonda, vera di Milano, che è una città non in posa, ma dinamica, al lavoro, la città delle arti e delle professioni e dell'imprenditoria più avanzata.Per facilitare il percorso del visitatore l'esposizione è suddivisa in sei sezioni: Architettura e Design; Arte; Letteratura e Editoria; Moda; Arti dello Spettacolo; Milano cosmopolita e Maria nel mondo. È evidente che, dato lo spazio a disposizione, non ci possono essere tutti i nomi importanti che ha ritratto, né Maria Mulas poteva allora fotografare tutti quelli che noi oggi riteniamo importanti. Ma dal suo formidabile archivio emerge una sequenza altamente rappresentativa di personalità che incarnano molta parte della cultura italiana e del made in Italy. Alcuni nomi: Giorgio Armani, Gae Aulenti, Joseph Beuys, Giorgio Bocca, Roberto Calasso, Gillo Dorfles, Umberto Eco, Inge Feltrinelli, Dario Fo, Carla Fracci, Allen Ginsberg, Krizia, Vico Magistretti, Enzo Mari, Marcello Mastroianni, Ottavio Missoni, Bruno Munari, Fernanda Pivano, Gio Ponti, Miuccia Prada, Ettore Sottsass, Giorgio Strehler, Ornella Vanoni, Lea Vergine, Luigi Veronesi, Gianni Versace, Andy Warhol.La mostra è accompagnata da un catalogo pubblicato dall'editore Umberto Allemandi, con scritti di Andrea Tomasetig, Paolo Fallai, Stefano Salis e Patrizia Zappa Mulas.https://www.allemandi.com/IL POSTO DELLE PAROLEAscoltare fa Pensarehttps://ilpostodelleparole.it/

Is there any truth to the anti-semitic conspiracy theories that Kanye and your weird uncle have been muttering for years? Probably not, but let's take a look at the seed that grew into such an ugly tree. Israel hasn't enjoyed its current form for very long, but there was a not-so-secret plan in place long before the Allied Forces established the nation of Israel after the Holocaust. Join us as we examine the accusation of fascism within one of the groups that suffered the most under its heel.We take a look at Baron Walter Rothschild, the Russian emigration to the Ottoman Empire, the current conflict and the measures to preserve peace, and everything in between.The Protocols of the Elders of Zion has done an incredible amount of harm to the Jewish Community, and the Anti-Defamation League has done lots of work to counter the decades of trouble caused by the hoax and the countless loud voices who repeat that nonsense. Anti-Semitism has no place in a civilized society.Zionism is a movement not isolated to Judaism--in fact, while many Jewish people are not Zionists, many Christians are.In addition to a survey of the history of Eretz-Israel, we critically examine the claim of fascism, comparing reality to Umberto Eco's 1995 checklist of fascist red flags. Support us at Patreon and SpreadshirtJoin the Community on DiscordLearn more great religion facts on Facebook and Instagram

In episode 379 of The Strenuous Life Podcast I talk with podcaster, martial artist, and history professor Daniele Bolelli about the characteristics of fascism. This is a loaded topic for both of us, because both of our families lived in fascist states during World War 2 (mine in Germany, his in Italy).  Which is why I almost went with an alternate title, namely A German and an Italian Walk Into a Bar... The terms 'fascism' sure gets thrown around a lot these days. But words have meaning, and so you can't just use it as an insult to describe anything you don't like. S0 what is it? As Daniele explains, there isn't a single definition of fascism; instead it's a checklist and the more items an ideology checks off then the closer they are to fascism.  Here are some of the major items for Daniele... Nostalgia for a mythic past Reliance on an authority figure who will fix everything Nationalism A cult of masculinity and cracking down on anyone who doesn't embody traditional values A hawkish desire for war against internal and external enemies Strong alliances with traditional power structures like industry and religion Anti-intellectualism and a distrust of expertise Conservative values, Subordination of women, anti-abortion, anti-birth control Anti-democratic values Emphasis on law and order Other things we discuss are Giorgia Meloni (the Prime Minister of Italy), economic situations before the rise of fascism, horseshoe theory and the eventual convergence of extreme left and extreme right, and the danger of fascism in the world right now. More Daniele Bolelli... Here are some places you can get more Daniele Bolelli... His History on Fire Podcast (highly recommended) His History on Fire Patreon if you want more content and support good work He's on Instagram @daniele_bolelli More Definitions of Fascism Fascism is a tricky word, and many different people have taken stabs at defining it.  Here are a few of my favorites... I found Jason Stanley's 10 traits of a fascist movement a very useful starting point. Umberto Eco's essay Ur-Fascism, originally published in the New York Review, included a 14 point list of the features of fascism. He identified that, for fascists, the enemy must simultaneously be very weak and very strong, which I found fascinating because I see it so often in the discourse these days. British political scientist Roger Griffin has defined the fascistic core as an ultranationalism focused on the idea of rebirth of a people or a nation (or palingenetic ultranationalism).   As is so often the case, the Wikipedia article on the definitions of fascism is a useful starting point if you want to go deeper into this topic.

Uma vez que o tema do festival este ano era «poder», uma palavra, como vão ver, muito presente nestes debates, lembrei-me logo de abordar o tema do politicamente correcto e as tensões que cria com a liberdade de expressão. Este é um tópico que abordo no livro, tanto na parte 1 como na parte 2, mas não é o tema central do livro. Por isso, decidi convidar duas pessoas para o painel. E quando me pus a pensar em quem, rapidamente me lembrei do Ricardo e do Daniel, visto que são duas pessoas com visões assertivas e fundamentadas sobre este tema (vão reparar que cada um preparou bem o que ia dizer). Além disso, os dois já tinham debatido entre si este assunto várias vezes, a última das quais no podcast do Daniel -- mas deixando, ainda assim, muitas pontas soltas por resolver. Este é um tema que tem marcado o debate político nos últimos anos, por isso creio que dispensa apresentações. É um tema que divide, e suscita em em muitos de nós reacções inflamadas num ou no outro sentido. Ao mesmo tempo (ou talvez seja precisamente por isso), o próprio conceito «politicamente correcto» parece por vezes pouco claro, o que leva a que a discussão se torne, frequentemente (e rapidamente), muito confusa.  Nesta conversa tentei contrariar estas duas tendências: discutir o tema de forma civilizada, e, ao mesmo tempo, perceber melhor o que está em causa quando as posições neste debate divergem, de modo a poder formar uma opinião fundamentada. O primeiro objectivo foi claramente conseguido. Foi uma conversa / debate profunda e, ao mesmo tempo, animada. Por isso é que o evento estava previsto durar cerca de 50 minutos e acabou perto das 2 horas (na versão não editada). E isto com uma plateia cheia que não arredou pé até ao final (sendo que esse “final” foi já perto das 21:30…!).  O segundo objectivo -- perceber melhor o que está em causa neste debate -- é mais complexo. Durante o debate, deixei o Ricardo e o Daniel discutirem um com o outro, intervindo sobretudo para esclarecer alguns pontos ou adicionar algum aspecto que me parecesse estar a faltar na discussão. Como é quase inevitável nos debates sobre estes temas, que tocam em tantas frentes, a discussão pareceu em alguns momentos desviar-se do tópico principal. Mas, para mim -- e espero que também para vocês -- ajudou-me a compreender melhor este tema. E levou-me a aprofundar uma reflexão sobre ele. Partilho-a convosco a seguir ao debate, no final do episódio.   _______________ Obrigado aos mecenas do podcast: Julie Piccini, Ana Raquel Guimarães Galaró family, José Luís Malaquias, Francisco Hermenegildo, Nuno Costa, Abílio Silva, Salvador Cunha, Bruno Heleno, António llms, Helena Monteiro, BFDC, Pedro Lima Ferreira, Miguel van Uden, João Ribeiro, Nuno e Ana, João Baltazar, Miguel Marques, Corto Lemos, Carlos Martins, Tiago Leite Tomás Costa, Rita Sá Marques, Geoffrey Marcelino, Luis, Maria Pimentel, Rui Amorim, RB, Pedro Frois Costa, Gabriel Sousa, Mário Lourenço, Filipe Bento Caires, Diogo Sampaio Viana, Tiago Taveira, Ricardo Leitão, Pedro B.

durée : 00:55:00 - Les Nuits de France Culture - par : Albane Penaranda - Et vous, parlez-vous l'Européen ? Etes-vous prêt pour un voyage sonore au cour de la machine bureaucratique européenne ? Embarquement immédiat pour Bruxelles avec ce documentaire diffusé en avril 2014 : "Vu du Berlaymont", produit par Laurent le Gall et Laurent Venneuguès pour Sur les Docks. Depuis le départ des Britanniques l'Europe se retrouve dans une situation paradoxale : la langue anglaise est la langue de travail des élus et des fonctionnaires de Bruxelles, mais elle n'est plus la langue officielle d'aucun pays membre, à l'exception de l'Irlande où elle partage son statut avec le gaélique.L'Allemand va-t-il donc s'imposer au détriment du français, qui avait la cote à l'époque où Jacques Delors présidait la Commission ?  Rien n'est moins sûr mais la question est peut-être accessoire en réalité. Umberto Eco l'a un jour résumé d'une formule : la langue de l'Europe c'est la traduction ! On pourrait même aller un peu plus loin. Et se demander avec un peu de mauvais esprit si la langue de l'Europe ne serait pas le jargon administratif pratiqué dans toutes les langues, dans les couloirs des institutions communautaires.  Ces variations linguistiques ont leur "Tour de Babel", un bâtiment aux dimensions colossales au cour du quartier européen de Bruxelles. Ce bâtiment est connu sous le nom de Berlaymont, c'était le nom vient d'un ancien couvent de religieuses établi au même endroit auparavant.  Avec Frédéric Vincent, Ingemar Strandvik, Paola Testori Coggi, Paula Duarte Gaspar, Zoltán Massay-Kosubek, Michèle Rivasi et Linda McAvan.  Par Laurent le Gall et Laurent Venneuguès  Réalisation : Véronique Vila Sur les Docks - Vu du Berlaymont (1ère diffusion : 02/04/2014) Indexation web : Documentation sonore de Radio France Archive Ina-Radio France

Between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean lies the tiny island of Redonda. Uninhabitable by humans, Redonda is home instead to a variety of wildlife—including untold generations of seabirds that produce the island's prized source of fertilizer. Though it might not seem like much, this peculiar island is the figurative home of a fantastical and international community of writers, with a highly-contested lineage of kings that includes John Gawsworth, Jon Wynne-Tyson, Dylan Thomas, Umberto Eco, Javier Marías, Alice Munro, and Pedro Almodóvar. In an exclusive Festival Week episode of the Books & Ideas Audio podcast, author Michael Hingston discusses his new book—Try Not to Be Strange: The Curious History of the Kingdom of Redonda—in conversation with Naben Ruthnum, the author of A Hero of Our Time and Find You in the Dark, among other books.

Pocos y valientes son los profetas que se han atrevido a encarnar el ministerio de la burla. Sin embargo, este es un ministerio de larga data: Elías mofándose de los sangrantes profetas de Baal, Isaías escribiendo una endecha satírica por la muerte del rey de Babilonia, Amós llamando "vacas de Basán" a las señoras opulentas de Israel, Jesús diciéndole "zorra" a Herodes y Juan de Patmos caricaturizando al imperio como una ramera ebria, son solamente algunos ejemplos. Pero estos no son más que precursores de "La Cizaña", un ministerio profético irreverente y contestatario para los últimos días, formado por Álvaro, Karla y Meny, tres amigos ex cristianos que tratan de exorcizar los traumas de haber crecido en la iglesia, sin dejar muñeco con cabeza en el camino. Los invité para hablar de hate cristiano, de el lugar de la burla en la experiencia de fe y de cómo se vive la espiritualidad después de abandonar el cristianismo. ¡Bienaventurado el que lee, y los que oyen las palabras de esta profecía!

Ma che ne è oggi del senso comune e del suo parente stretto, il buon senso? Quale utilità hanno o possono avere nella stagione dei terrapiattisti e dei no vax? Sempre al confine tra ovvietà e saggezza, il senso comune ha tuttora un posto centrale, perché filtra la lettura della realtà secondo schemi radicati nella nostra cultura, offre gerarchie di valori che possono farsi norma e misura del sentire e del fare, induce a riconoscersi in una dimensione interpersonale che istituisce soggettività collettive capaci di nutrire il senso di appartenenza.IL POSTO DELLE PAROLEAscoltare fa Pensarehttps://ilpostodelleparole.it/

Fascism has earned an ugly name over the last century, no question about it. Some religions lean into it, some look forward to a day when it can be openly celebrated, especially in monotheistic traditions. This week, we're exploring what it really means to be inside, to see fascism differently than what history has shown us. Straight out of the mouths of Benito Mussolini and Francisco Franco, we examine the difficulty in defining fascism, and why some Christians are taking advantage of that obscurity. We get a little help from Umberto Eco and Stanley Payne in our efforts to delineate the nature of the beast, but few organizations hit all the landmarks--watch out for the ones that do. Ultimately, when it comes to religious groups throwing their hats in with the fascists, as we see all around the world today, it's up to every good person to stand against these fundamentalist authoritarian parties while it's still safe to do so.

Planejamento Antifrágil - Estratégias para se beneficiar do caos. Aprenda com Luciano Pires os segredos, estratégias e o passo a passo para incorporar o imponderável aos seus planos e projetos. Vem comigo: http://planejamentoantifragil.com Em setembro de 2017 publiquei o primeiro destes cafezinhos. O tema era “sobre falar bobagens”. Nele eu explicava que o que leva alguém a falar bobagem em público ou é ignorância, ou burrice, ou soberba, ou estratégia ou canalhice. Nem lembro mais o que me levou a escrever aquele texto, provavelmente eu estava indignado com a exposição de bobagens em redes sociais.  Dois anos antes, em 2015, durante a cerimônia de outorga do prêmio de doutor honoris causa na Universidade de Torino, na Itália, o romancista, filósofo e teórico da literatura e da linguagem Umberto Eco deu uma declaração que lhe custou caro: “a internet deu voz a uma legião de imbecis”. A patota internética caiu matando, a maioria dos que o atacaram nem mesmo sabia quem era Umberto Eco. Devia ser um velho ranzinza ultrapassado, não é? Cancela ele! Pois bem. De lá para cá o que se viu foi a ampliação da quantidade de imbecis que ganhou voz na internet. E depois dos furacões políticos e da pandemia, perdeu-se qualquer resquício de pudor que os imbecis por acaso tivessem. Agora temos muito mais imbecis letrados, gente inteligente, estudada, que fala bonito e escreve bem, espalhando imbecilidades de todos os tamanhos e formas. E eles atacam em bandos, vorazes como Walking Deads, tentando de todas as formas transformar você num deles... Esse é o preço da liberdade: conviver com gente com quem não concordamos. Ouvir os maiores absurdos. Assistir gente ignorante, maldosa e até mesmo canalha, pintando e bordando na internet. Pois é... até os canalhas têm direitos. Concorda? Não? Então vou continuar com esta argumentação neste vídeo:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nL59GrWkeDw Gostou? De onde veio este, tem muito, mas muito mais.

Vem comigo: http://planejamentoantifragil.com Em setembro de 2017 publiquei o primeiro destes cafezinhos. O tema era “sobre falar bobagens”. Nele eu explicava que o que leva alguém a falar bobagem em público ou é ignorância, ou burrice, ou soberba, ou estratégia ou canalhice. Nem lembro mais o que me levou a escrever aquele texto, provavelmente eu estava indignado com a exposição de bobagens em redes sociais.  Dois anos antes, em 2015, durante a cerimônia de outorga do prêmio de doutor honoris causa na Universidade de Torino, na Itália, o romancista, filósofo e teórico da literatura e da linguagem Umberto Eco deu uma declaração que lhe custou caro: “a internet deu voz a uma legião de imbecis”. A patota internética caiu matando, a maioria dos que o atacaram nem mesmo sabia quem era Umberto Eco. Devia ser um velho ranzinza ultrapassado, não é? Cancela ele! Pois bem. De lá para cá o que se viu foi a ampliação da quantidade de imbecis que ganhou voz na internet. E depois dos furacões políticos e da pandemia, perdeu-se qualquer resquício de pudor que os imbecis por acaso tivessem. Agora temos muito mais imbecis letrados, gente inteligente, estudada, que fala bonito e escreve bem, espalhando imbecilidades de todos os tamanhos e formas. E eles atacam em bandos, vorazes como Walking Deads, tentando de todas as formas transformar você num deles... Esse é o preço da liberdade: conviver com gente com quem não concordamos. Ouvir os maiores absurdos. Assistir gente ignorante, maldosa e até mesmo canalha, pintando e bordando na internet. Pois é... até os canalhas têm direitos. Concorda? Não? Então vou continuar com esta argumentação neste vídeo:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nL59GrWkeDw Gostou? De onde veio este, tem muito, mas muito mais.

Fiction Between Friends

This week the gang reads historical fiction. Alisa and Aileen are old pros at this sub-genre while Josie and Lauren are more like dabblers. Ironically, almost all of the picks were in the WW2 category while Josie was the odd duck who traveled back to medieval Europe.Aileen read Moloka'i by Alan Brennert. She's been trying for years to read this book but every time she picked it up, she'd put it back down after asking herself, “do I really want to read about a leper colony?” Well, she finally read it and she's so glad she did. It was uplifting and inspiring and not at all the bummer she imagined it be at the outset. Thanks to her friend Pam for suggesting it!It took Lauren a moment to spit out the title, but The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Schaffer was a huge hit for her. This book took her a beat to get into but once she did, she never wanted it to end. Set during the German occupation of Guernsey during WW2, this epistolary-style book was a great yarn. As always, Lauren doesn't suggest books unless she loves the characters, and this book she highly recommends.Alisa found a real gem in The Only Woman in the Room by Heather Terrel. Set mostly during WW2 as well, this story is about Hettie Lamar's life, loves and her inventions. The gang was just floored to learn about this multi-faceted, self-taught woman whose mind was even more stunning than her famous face. There were some real mind blowers in this one, and the gang was just spellbound by Alisa's description.Josie went to the way-way back with Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose. It was murderous monks galore in this runaway bestselling book that was not only inspired by a medieval manuscript, it's also about one, hidden deep within a library that also a labyrinth. There are so many twists and turns, both metaphorically and in the plot, it will have your head spinning. But don't let the Latin freak you out. This is a real page turner as well as being a meditation on one of the biggest theological debates in Catholicism. Josie loved it.

About KateKate Holterhoff, an industry analyst with RedMonk, has a background in frontend engineering, academic research, and technical communication. Kate comes to RedMonk from the digital marketing sector and brings with her expertise in frontend engineering, QA, accessibility, and scrum best practices.Before pursuing a career in the tech industry Kate taught writing and communication courses at several East Coast universities. She earned a PhD from Carnegie Mellon in 2016 and was awarded a postdoctoral fellowship (2016-2018) at Georgia Tech, where she is currently an affiliated researcher.Links: RedMonk: https://redmonk.com/ Visual Haggard: https://visualhaggard.org Twitter: https://twitter.com/kateholterhoff TranscriptAnnouncer: Hello, and welcome to Screaming in the Cloud with your host, Chief Cloud Economist at The Duckbill Group, Corey Quinn. This weekly show features conversations with people doing interesting work in the world of cloud, thoughtful commentary on the state of the technical world, and ridiculous titles for which Corey refuses to apologize.

It means, “I reveal.” Now, have you tried to hire an engineer lately? I assure you it is significantly harder than it sounds. One of the things that Revelo has recognized is something I've been talking about for a while, specifically that while talent is evenly distributed, opportunity is absolutely not. They're exposing a new talent pool to, basically, those of us without a presence in Latin America via their platform. It's the largest tech talent marketplace in Latin America with over a million engineers in their network, which includes—but isn't limited to—talent in Mexico, Costa Rica, Brazil, and Argentina. Now, not only do they wind up spreading all of their talent on English ability, as well as you know, their engineering skills, but they go significantly beyond that. Some of the folks on their platform are hands down the most talented engineers that I've ever spoken to. Let's also not forget that Latin America has high time zone overlap with what we have here in the United States, so you can hire full-time remote engineers who share most of the workday as your team. It's an end-to-end talent service, so you can find and hire engineers in Central and South America without having to worry about, frankly, the colossal pain of cross-border payroll and benefits and compliance because Revelo handles all of it. If you're hiring engineers, check out revelo.io/screaming to get 20% off your first three months. That's R-E-V-E-L-O dot I-O slash screaming.Corey: Welcome to Screaming in the Cloud. I'm Corey Quinn. Every once in a while on the Twitters, I see a glorious notification. Now, doesn't happen often, but when it does, I have all well, atwitter, if you'll pardon the term. They have brought someone new in over at RedMonk.RedMonk has been a longtime friend of the show. They're one of the only companies that can say that about and not immediately get a cease-and-desist for having said that. And their most recent hire is joining me today. Kate Holterhoff is a newly minted analyst over at RedMonk. Kate, thank you for joining me.Kate: It's great to be here.Corey: One of the things that's always interesting about RedMonk is how many different directions you folks seem to go in all at once. It seems that I keep crossing paths with you folks almost constantly: When I'm talking to clients, when I'm talking to folks in the industry. And it could easily be assumed that you folks are 20, 30, 40 people, but to my understanding, there are not quite that many of you there.Kate: That is very true. Yes. I am the fifth analyst on a team of seven. And yeah, brought on the first of the year, and I'm thrilled to be here. I actually, I would say, recruited by one of my friends at Georgia Tech, Kelly Fitzpatrick, who I taught technical communication with when we were both postdocs in their Brittain Fellowship program.Corey: So, you obviously came out of an academic background. Is this your first excursion to industry?Kate: No, actually. After getting my PhD in literary and cultural studies at Carnegie Mellon in 2016, I moved to Atlanta and took a postdoc at Georgia Tech. And after that was kind of winding down, I decided to make the jump to industry. So, my first position out of that was at a digital marketing agency in Atlanta. And I was a frontend engineer for several years.Towards the end of my tenure there, I moved into doing more of their production engineering and QA work. Although it was deeply tied to my frontend work, so we spent a lot of time looking at how the web sites look at different media queries, making sure that there were no odd break points. So, it certainly was an organic move there as their team expanded.Corey: You spent significant amounts of time in the academic landscape. When you start talking about, “Well, I took on a postdoc position,” that's usually the sign of not your first year on a college campus in most cases. I mean, again, with an eighth grade education, I'm not really the person to ask, but I sit here in awe as people who are steeped in academia wind up going about the magic that, from where I sit, they tend to do. What was it that made you decide that I really enjoy the field that I've gotten a doctorate in. You just recently published a book in that is—or at least tangentially related to this space.But you decide, “You know what I really want to do now? That's right, frontend engineering. I want to spend, more or less, 40-some-odd hours a week slowly going mad because CSS, and I can't quite get that thing to line up the way that I want it to.” Now, at least that's my experience with it, for folks who are, you know, competent at it, I presume that's a bit of a different story.Kate: Yes. I considered naming my blog at RedMonk, “How to Center a Div.” So yes, that is certainly an ongoing issue, I think, for anyone in [unintelligible 00:06:15] any, you know, practitioners. So, I guess my story probably began in 2013, the real move into technology. So, getting a PhD, of course, takes a very, very long time.So, I started at Carnegie Mellon in 2009, and in 2013, I started a digital archive called Visual Haggard. And it's a Ruby on Rails site; you can visit it at visualhaggard.org. And it is a digital archive of illustrations that were created to accompany a 19th century writer, H. Rider Haggard.And I became very interested in all the illustrations that had been created to accompany both the serialization of his fictions, but also the later novelizations. And it's kind of like how we have all these different movie adaptations of, like, Spider Man that come out every couple of years. These illustrations were just very iterative. And generally, this fellowship that I saw really only focused on, you know, the first illustrations that, you know, came out. So, this was a sort of response to that: How can we use technology to showcase all the different types of illustrations and how maybe different artists would interpret that literature differently?And so, that drove me into a discipline called the digital humanities, which really sort of, you know, focuses on that question, which is, you know, how to computers help us to understand the humanities better? And so, that incorporates not only the arts, but also literature, philosophy, you know, new media. But it's an extremely broad subject, and it's evolving, as you can imagine, as the things that technology can do expands. So, I became interested in this subject and really was drawn to the sort of archival aspects of this. Which wasn't really my training; I think that's something that, you know, you think of librarians as being more focused on, but I became acquainted with all these, you know, very obscure editions.But in any event, it also taught me how to [laugh] use technology, I really—I was involved in the [RDF 00:08:08] export for [laugh] incorporating the site on Nines, which is sort of a larger agglomeration of 19th century archives. And I was just really drawn to a lot of the new things that we could do. So, I began to use it more in my teaching. So, not only did I—and of course as I taught communication courses at Carnegie Mellon, and then I moved to teaching them at Georgia Tech, you can imagine I had many students who were engineers, and they were very interested in these sorts of questions as well. So, the move felt very organic to me, but I think any academic that you speak to, their identity is very tied up in their sort of, you know, academic standing.And so, the idea of jumping ship, of not being labeled an academic anymore is kind of terrifying. But I, you know, ultimately opted to do it. It certainly was, yeah, but you know, what [laugh] what I learned is that there's the status called an affiliated researcher. So, I didn't necessarily have to be a professor or someone on the tenure track in order to continue doing research.Corey: Was it hard for you?Kate: So, the book project, which is titled Illustration in Fin-de-Siècle Transatlantic Romance Fiction, and has a chapter devoted to H. Rider Haggard, I wrote it, while really not even being an instructor or sort of traditional academic. I had access to the library through this affiliated researcher status, which I maintained by keeping a relationship with the folks at Georgia Tech, and was able to do all my research while you know, having a job in industry. And I think what a lot of academics need to do is think about what it is about academia that they really value. Is it the teaching?Because in industry, we spend a lot of time teaching [laugh]. Sharing our knowledge is something that's extremely important. Is that the research? As an analyst, I get to do research all the time, which is really fun for me. And then, you know, is it really just kind of focusing on historical aspects? And that was also important to me.So, you know, this status allowed me to keep all the best parts of being an academic while kind of sloughing off the [laugh] parts that weren't so good, which is, um, say the fact that 80% of courses in the university are taught now by adjuncts or folks who are not on the tenure track line. Which is, you know, pretty shocking, you know. The academy is going through some… troubles right now, and hiring issues are—they need to be acknowledged, and I think folks who are considering getting a PhD need to look for other career paths beyond just through modeling it on their advisors, or, you know, in order to become, ostensibly, a professor themselves.Corey: I don't know if I've told the story before in public, but I briefly explored the possibility of getting a PhD myself, which is interesting given that I'd have to… there's some prerequisites I'd probably have to nail first, like, get a formal GED might be, like, step one, before proceeding on. And strangely enough for me, it was not the higher level, I guess, contribution to a body of knowledge in a particular direction. I mean, cloud economics being sort of an easy direction for me [laugh] to go in, given that I eat, sleep, live, and breathe it, but rather the academic rigor around so much of it. And the incentives feel very different, which to be clear, is a good thing. My entire career path has always been focused on not starving to death, and how do we turn this problem into money, whereas academia has always seemed to be focused on knowledge for the sake of knowledge without much, if any, thought toward the practical application slash monetization thereof? Is that a fair characterization from where you sit? I'm trying not to actively be insulting, but it's possible I may be unintentionally so.Kate: No, I think you're right on. And so yeah, like, the book that I published, I probably won't see any remuneration for that. There is very little—I'm actually [laugh] not even sure what the contract says, but I don't intend to make any money with this. Professors, even those who have reached the height of their career, unless they're, you know, on specific paths, don't make a lot of money, those in the humanities, especially. You don't do this to become wealthy.And the Visual Haggard archive, I don't—you know, everything is under a Creative Commons license. I don't make money from people, you know, finding images that they're looking for to reproduce, say, on a t-shirt or something. So yeah, I suspect you do it for the love. I always explained it as having a sort of existential anxiety of, like, trying to, you know, cheat death. I think it was Umberto Eco who said that in order to live forever, you have to have a child and a book.And at this point, I have two children and a book now, so I can just, you know, die and my, you know, [laugh] my legacy lives on. But I do feel like the reasons that folks go into upper higher education vary, and so I wouldn't want to speak for everyone. But for me, yeah, it is not a place to make money, it's a place to establish sort of more intangible benefits.Corey: This episode is sponsored in part by our friends at ChaosSearch. You could run Elasticsearch or Elastic Cloud—or OpenSearch as they're calling it now—or a self-hosted ELK stack. But why? ChaosSearch gives you the same API you've come to know and tolerate, along with unlimited data retention and no data movement. Just throw your data into S3 and proceed from there as you would expect. This is great for IT operations folks, for app performance monitoring, cybersecurity. If you're using Elasticsearch, consider not running Elasticsearch. They're also available now in the AWS marketplace if you'd prefer not to go direct and have half of whatever you pay them count towards your EDB commitment. Discover what companies like Klarna, Equifax, Armor Security, and Blackboard already have. To learn more, visit chaossearch.io and tell them I sent you just so you can see them facepalm, yet again.Corey: I guess one of the weird things from where I sit is looking at the broad sweep of industry and what I know of RedMonks perspective, you mentioned that as a postdoc, you taught technical communication. Then you went to go to frontend engineering, which in many respects is about effectively, technically—highly technical and communicating with the end-user. And now you are an analyst at RedMonk. And seeing what I have seen of your organization in the larger ecosystem, teaching technical communication is a terrific descriptor of what it is you folks actually do. So, from a certain point of view, I would argue that you're still pursuing the path that you are on in some respects. Is that even slightly close to the way that you view things, or am I just more or less ineffectively grasping at straws, as I am wont to do?Kate: No, I feel like there is a continuous thread. So, even before I got my PhD, I got a—one of my bachelor's degrees was in art. So, I used to paint murals; I was very interested in public art. And so, it you know, it feels to me that there is this thread that goes from an interest in the arts and how the public can access them to, you know, doing web development that's focused on the visual aspects, you know, how are these things responsive? What is it that actually makes the DOM communicate in this visual way? You know, how are cascading style sheets,allowing us to do these sorts of marvelous things?You know, I could talk about my favorite, you know, selectors and things. [laugh]. Because I will defend CSS. I actually don't hate it, although we use SASS if it matters. But you know, that I think there's a lot to be said for the way that the web looks today rather than, you know, 20 years ago.So there, it feels very natural to me to have moved from an interest in illustration to trying to, you know, work in a more frontend way, but then ultimately [laugh] move from that into doing, sort of, QA, which is, like, well, let's take a look at how we're communicating visually and see if we can improve that to, you know, look for things that maybe aren't coming across as well as they could. Which really forced me to work in the interactive team more with the UI/UX folks who are, you know, obviously telling the designers where to put the buttons and, you know, how to structure the, you know, the text blocks in relationship to the images and things like that. So, it feels natural to me, although it might not seem so on the outside. You know, in the process, I really I guess, acquired a love of that entire area.And I think what's great about working at RedMonk now is that I get to see how these technologies are evolving. So, you know, I actually just spun up a site on [unintelligible 00:16:27] not long ago. And, I mean, it is so cool. I mean, you know, coming from a background where we were working with, you know, jQuery, [laugh] things have really evolved. You know, it's exciting. And I think we're seeing the, [like, as 00:16:39] the full stack approach to this.Corey: I used to volunteer for the jQuery infrastructure team and help run jquery.net, once upon a time.Kate: Ohh.Corey: I assume that is probably why it is no longer in vogue. Like, oh, Corey was too close to it got his stink all over the thing. Let's find something better immediately, which honestly, not the worst approach in the world to take.Kate: I'm so impressed. I had no idea.Corey: It was mostly—because again, I was bad at frontend; always have been, but I know how to make computers run—kind of—and on the backend side of things and the infrastructure piece of it. It's like I tend to—at least at the time—break the world into more or less three sets: You had the ops types, think of database admins and the rest; you had the backend engineers, people who wrote code that made things talk to each other from an API perspective, and you had frontend folks who took all of the nonsense and had this innovative idea that, “Huh, maybe a green screen glowing text terminal isn't the pinnacle of user experience that we might possibly think about, and start turning it into something that a human being can use.”And whatever I hear folks from one of those constituencies start talking disparagingly about the others, it's… yeah, go walk a mile in their shoes and then tell me how you feel. A couple years ago, I took a two week break to, all right, it's time for me to learn JavaScript. And by the end of the two weeks period, I was more confused than I was when I began. And it's just a very different way of thinking than I have become accustomed to working with. So, from where I sit, people who work on that stuff successfully are effectively just this side of wizards.I think that there's—I feel the same way about database types. That's an area I never go into either because I'm terrible at that, and the stakes over their company-killing proportions in a way that I took down a web server usually doesn't.Kate: Yeah, I think that's often the motto, well, at least at my last company, which was like, “It's just a website. No one will die.” [laugh].Corey: Honestly, I find that the people who have really have the best attitude about that tend to be, strangely enough, military veterans because it's, “The site is down. How are you so calm?” It's, “Well, no one's shooting at me and no one's going to die? It's fine.” Like, “We're all going to go home to our families tonight. It'll work out.” It having perspective is important.Kate: Yeah. It is interesting how the impetus—I mean, going back to your question about, you know, making money at this field, you know, how that kind of factors in, I guess, frontend does tend to have a more relaxed attitude than say, yeah, if you drop a table or something. But at the same time, you know, compared to academia, it did feel a little bit more [laugh] like, “Okay, well, this—you know, we've got the project manager that is breathing down our neck. They got to send them something, you know, what's going on here?” So, yeah, it does become a little bit more, I don't know, these things ramped up a little bit, and the importance, you know, varies by, you know, whatever part of it you're working on.It's interesting, as an analyst, I don't hear the terms backend and frontend as much, and that was really how my team was divided, you know? It was really, kind of, opaque when you walked in. Started the job, I was like, “Okay, well, is this something that the frontend should be dealing with or the backend? You know, what's going on?” And then, you know, ultimately, I was like, “Oh, no, I know exactly what this is.”And then anyone who came on later, I was like, “No, no, no. We talk to the backend folks for this sort of problem.” So, I don't know if that's also something that's falling out of vogue, but that was, you know, the backend handled all the DevOps aspects as well, and so, you know, anything with our virtual boxes and, you know, trying to get things running and, you know, access to our… yeah, the servers, you know, all of that was kind of handled by backend. But yeah, I worked with some really fantastic frontend, folks. They were just—I feel like they we could bet had been better categorized as full stack. And many of them have CS degrees and they chose to go into frontend. So, you know, it's a—I have no patience for, you know—Corey: Oh God, you mean you chose this instead of it being something that happened to you in a horrible accident one of these days?Kate: [laugh]. Exactly.Corey: And that's not restricted to frontend; that's working with computers, in my experience.Kate: [laugh].Corey: Like, oh, God, it's hard to remember I chose this at one point. Now, it feels almost like I'm not suited for anything else. You have a clear ability to effectively communicate technical concepts. If not, you more or less wasted most of your academic career, let's be very clear. Then you decided that you're going to go and be an engineer for a while, and you did that.Why RedMonk? Why was that the next step because with that combination of skills, the world is very much your oyster. What made you look at RedMonk and say, “Yes, this is where I should work?” And let me be very clear. There are days I have strongly considered, like, if I weren't doing this, where would I be? And yeah, I would probably annoy RedMonk into actively blocking me on all social media or hiring me. There's no third option there. So, I agree wholeheartedly with the decision. What was it that made it for you?Kate: I mean, it was certainly not just one thing. One of the parts of academia that I really enjoyed was the ability to go to conferences and just travel and really get to meet people. And so, that was something that seemed to be a big part of it [unintelligible 00:21:27] so that's kind of the part that maybe doesn't get mentioned so much. And then especially in the Covid era, you know, we're not doing as much traveling, as you're well aware.Corey: We're spending all of our time having these conversations via screen.Kate: You know, I do enjoy that.Corey: Yeah. Like in the before times, probably one out of every eight episodes or so of this show was recorded in person.Kate: Wow.Corey: Now, it's, “I don't know. I don't really know if I want to go across town.” It's a—honestly, I've become a bit of a shut-in here. But you get it down to a science. But you lose something by doing it.Kate: That's true.Corey: There's a lack of high bandwidth communication.Kate: And many of my academic friends, when they would go to conferences, they would just kind of hide in their hotel room until they had to present. And I was the kind of person that was down in the bar hanging out. So, to me, it [laugh] felt very natural. But in terms of the intellectual parts, in all seriousness, I think the ability to pull apart arguments is something that I just truly enjoy. So, when I was teaching, which of course was how—was why they paid me to be an academic, you know, I loved when I could sit in a classroom and I would ask a question. You know, I kind of come up with these questions ahead of time.And the students would say something totally unexpected, and then I'd have another one, say something totally out of the blue as well. And I get to take them and say, “You're both right. Here's how we combine them, and here's how we're going to move forward.” Sort of, the ability to take an argument and sort of mold it into something constructive, I think can be very useful, both in, you know, meeting with clients who maybe are, you know, coming at things a little bit differently than then maybe we would recommend in order to, you know, help them to reach developers, the practitioners, but also, you know, moderating panels is something that a lot of my colleagues do. I mean, that's a big part of the job, too, is, you know, speaking and… well, not only doing sort of keynote talks, which my colleague Rachel is doing that at, I think, a [GlueCon 00:23:14] this year.And then—but also, you know, just in video format, you know, to having multiple presenters and, kind of, taking their ideas and making something out of that sort of forwards the argument. I think that's a lot of fun. I like to think I do an okay job at it. And I certainly have a lot of experience with it. And then just finally, you know, listening to argument [unintelligible 00:23:30] a big part of the job is going to briefings where clients explain what their product does, and we listen and try to give them feedback about how to reach the developer audience, and, you know, just trying to work on that communication aspect.And I think what I would like to push is more of the visual part of this. So, I think a lot of times, people don't always think through the icons that they include, or the illustrations, or the just the stock photos. And I find those so fascinating. [laugh]. I know, that's not always the most—the part that everyone wants to focus on, but to me, the visuals of these pitches are truly interesting. They really, kind of, maybe say things that they don't intend always, and that also can really make concrete ideas that are, especially with some of this really complex technology, it can really help potential buyers to understand what it accomplishes better.Corey: Some of the endless engagements I've been on that I enjoy the most have been around talking to vendors who are making things. And it starts off invariably as, “Yeah, we want to go ahead and tell the world about this thing that we've done.” And my perspective has always been just a subtle frame shift. It's like, “Yeah, let me save some time. No one cares. Absolutely no one cares. You're in love with the technical thing that you built, and the only people who are going to love it as much as you do are either wanting to work where you, or they're going to go build their own and they're not going to be your customer. So, don't talk about you. No one cares about you. Talk about the pain that you solve. Talk about the painful thing that you're target customer is struggling with that you make disappear.”And I didn't think that would be, A, as revelatory as it turned out to be, and B, a lesson that I had to learn myself. When I was starting o—when I was doing some product development here where I once again fell into the easy trap of assuming if I know something, everyone must know it, therefore, it's easy, whereas if I don't know something, it's very hard, and no one could possibly wrap their head around it. And we all come from different places, and meeting people wherever they are in their journey, it's a delicate lesson to learn. I never understood what analysts did until I started being an analyst myself, and I've got to level with you, I spent six months of doing those types of engagements feeling like a giant fraud. I'm just a loudmouth with an opinion, what is what does that mean?Well, in many ways, it means analyst. Because it's having an opinion is in so many ways, what customers are really after. Raw data, you can find that a thousand different ways, but finding someone who could talk on what something means, that's harder. And I think that we don't teach anything approaching that in most of our STEM curriculum.Kate: Yeah, I think that's really on point. Yeah, I mean, especially when some of these briefings are so mired in acronyms, and sort of assumed specialization. I know I spend a lot of time just thinking about what it is that confuses me about their pitch, more so than what, you know, is actually coming through. So, I think actually, one of the tools that we use—writing instructors; my past life—was thinking like someone with an eighth grade education. So, I actually think that your reference to having [laugh] you know, that's sort of chestnut, that can actually be useful because you say, “If I, you know, took my slide deck and showed it to a bunch of eighth graders, would they understand what it is that I'm saying?”You know, maybe you don't want them to get the technical details, but what problem does it solve? If they don't understand that, you're not doing a good enough job. And so that, to me, is [laugh] actually something that a lot of folks need to hear. That yeah, these vendors because they're just so deep in it, they're so in the weeds, that they can't maybe see how someone who's just looking for a database, or a platform, or whatever, they actually need this sort of simplified and yet broad enough explanation for what it is that they're actually trying to do what service they actually provide.Corey: From where I sit, one of the hardest things is just reaching people in the right way. And I'm putting out a one to two-thousand word blog post every week because I apparently hate myself. And that was a constant struggle for me when I started doing that a year or two ago. And what has worked for me that really get me moving down that is, instead of trying to teach everyone all the things, I pick an individual—and it varies from week to week—that I think about and I want to explain something to that person. And then I wind up directing what it is I'm about to tell—what it is I'm writing—to that person.Sometimes they're a complete layperson. Other times they are fairly advanced in a particular area of technology. And the responses to these things differ, but it's always—I always learn something from the feedback that I get. And if nothing else, is one of those ways to become a better writer. While I would start by writing. Just do it, don't whine—don't worry about getting it perfect; just go out there and power through things.At least, that's my approach. And I'm talking about the burden of writing a thousand words a week. You wrote an actual book. My belief is that, the more people I've talked to who've done that, no one actually wants to write a book; people want to have written a book, and that definitely resonates with me. I am tempted to just slap a bunch of these—Kate: Yeah.Corey: —blogs posts together and call it a book one of these days as an anthology. But it feels like it's cheating. If I ever decide to go down that path, I want to do it right.Kate: I guess, I come at it from the perspective of I don't know what I think until I write it down. So, it helps me to formulate ideas better. I also feel like my strength is in rereading things and trying to edit them down to really get to the kernel of what it is I think. And a lot of times how I begin a chapter or a blog post or whatever is not where it should begin, that maybe I'm somewhere in the middle, maybe this is a conclusion. There's something magical, in my view, that [laugh] happens when you write, that you are able to pause and take a little bit more time and maybe come up with a better word for what it is that you're trying to communicate.I also am—I benefit from readers. So, for instance, in my book, I have one chapter that really focuses on Harper's Weekly, which is an American newspaper. I'm not an Americanist; I don't have a deep knowledge of that, so what I did is I revise that chapter and send it to American periodicals and got feedback from their readers. Super useful. In terms of my blog at RedMonk, anytime I publish something, you can bet that at least one founder and probably at least one other analyst has read it through and giving me some extremely incisive feedback. It never is just from my mind. It's something that is collaboration.And I am grateful to anyone who takes the time to read my writing because, you know, all of us have so much time, of course. It really helps me to understand what it is that I'm trying to dig into. So, for instance, I've been writing a series for RedMonk on certifications, which makes a lot of sense; I've come from an academic background, here it is, you know, I'm seeing all these tech certifications. And so, it's interesting to me to see similarities and differences and what sort of issues that we're seeing come up with them. So, for instance, I just wrote about the vendor-specific versus vendor-neutral certifications. What are the advantages of getting a certification from the CN/CF versus from say, VMware and—Corey: Oh, I have opinions, on all of [those 00:30:44]—Kate: I—Corey: —and most of them are terrible.Kate: —I'm sure you do. [laugh]. It came naturally out of the job, you know, sitting through briefings and, kind of, seeing these things evolve, and the questions that I have from a long history of teaching, but. I think it also suggests the collaborative aspect of this, of coming to my colleagues—you know, I've been here before, for what, four months?—and saying, you know, “Is this normal? Like, what are we seeing here? Let me write a little bit about what I think is going on with certifications, and then you tell me, you know, what it is that you've seen with your years and years of expertise,” right?So, Stephen O'Grady's been doing this for longer than he really likes to admit, right? So, this is grateful to have such well-established colleagues that can help me on that journey. But, you know, to kind of spiral back to your original question, I think that writing to me is an exploration, it's something that helps me to get to something a little more, I guess, meaningful than just where I began. You know, just the questions that I have, I can kind of dig down and find some substance there. I would encourage you to take any one of your blog posts and think about maybe where they—or using the jumping off points for your eventual book, which I will be looking for on newsstands any day now.Corey: I am looking forward to seeing how you continue to evolve your coverage area, as well as reading more of your writings around these things. I am—they always say that the cobblers children have no shoes, and I am having an ongoing war with the RedMonk RSS feed because I've been subscribed to it three times now, and I'm still not seeing everything that comes through, such as your posts. Time for me to go and yell at some people over on your end about how these things work because it is such good content. And every time RedMonk puts something out, it doesn't matter who over there has written it, I wind up reading it with this sense of envy, in that I wish I had written something like this. It is always an experience, and your writing is absolutely no exception to that. You fit in well over there.Kate: It means a lot to me. Thank you. [laugh].Corey: No, thank you. I want to thank you for spending so much time talking to me about things that I feel like I'm still not quite smart enough to wrap my head around, but that's all right. If people want to learn more, where's the best place to find you?Kate: Certainly Twitter. So, my Twitter handle is just my name, @kateholterhoff. And I don't post as often as maybe I should, but I try to maintain an ongoing presence there.Corey: And we will of course, put a link to that in the [show notes 00:33:04].Kate: Thank you.Corey: Thank you so much for your time.
