"By using New Relic, we're able to release new features faster and spend less time resolving issues," said Eric.

…a need for an experienced developer. Predictably, the first reply came from an IT recruiter: " Eric, would you consider moving to Austin or are you looking to remain in J-ville?"

That recruiter — Mark Cunningham, owner of The Bidding Network in Austin — says zero percent of his clients (primarily startups) are open to hiring remote workers. "If we've got some crackerjack Java developer who just has something amazing but he lives [20 miles away] …

…It's a truly fascinating operating system, which still challenges me after all this time." Eric explained.

His passion for Linux growing with each new discovery, Eric began attending Ohio LinuxFest, sharing tips, tricks, and surprising finds with the many Linux enthusiasts attending the event each year.

Eric at 59:00 on the importance of measuring team members on impact rather than effort. Eric: "It's a fundamental waste of human energy and talent to have people working on things that nobody wants and that have no impact. That's actually morally wrong to have a system that does that. Couldn't we expand our horizons and see that there's actually another way? I find that very motivating."

With impeccable reflexes, Eric managed to escape our flame-engulfed office (this isn't an embellishment), break into the neighbouring apartment, and evacuate those tenants from their building before calling 911. This is classic Mr. Taylor, and we're so glad he's safe …

In hindsight, it's so obvious, though it brings up a question: if the thing that generates the activity fails, does that mean the system isn't working? Is this worth an alert, is this worth waking someone up for? Certainly …
