…Please visit http://making.vimeo.com for more information and thanks to Vimeo for sharing this tool!

Here is the rough list of iterations we worked through in developing this tool/process:

Standard pt-heartbeat update/monitor

Asynchronous, threaded update/monitor tool

Synchronized (via zeroMQ), threaded version of the tool

Here's a classic piece of not-so-savory tech culture. It's a video featuring Jakob Lodwick, then a partner at Connected Ventures, the people behind CollegeHumor, Busted Tees and Vimeo, giving a grand tour of the office. He opens the tour by emphasizing that the office is full of "young, vibrant" people — he was in his twenties at the time. Around the 4:35 mark, the video goes deeper into the topic of "old people" — that they just don't get …

…about "the movies." Abstract motion-graphics coded in Processing and posted on Vimeo, that's "cyberpunk." You don't wanna make movies that are about guys with computers. You want to use digital composition to seize control of the means of producing cinema. And then do it all yourself! That's "punk." Hollywood product is commerce, it's about fanboy culture.

While it's certainly very likely that monied elites will find ways to …

…also local speakers you may not have seen before. The topics were very diverse and the talks were enlightening. We also had a variety of workshops, and afterwards people socialized and explored the city it was hosted in.

You can get additional information by following us on twitter at @rubyconf_au , subscribing to our mailing list, or viewing 2013's talks on Vimeo.

We hope to see you there!

Keith Perhac and I are back with the 5th epsiode of the Kalzumeus podcast.

Keith and I both have experience working as consultants in software development and online marketing. People often ask us how to transition away from the feast-or-famine nature of freelancing, where you do very well when you're delivering engagements and getting them paid quickly, and then do very poorly when work dries up or you have invoice collection issues. One way to improve on this is building recurring …

…watching people make things, and I doubly love hearing their passion for whatever it is they're making. Even more enlightening, this is a very international series. It's not all hipster shops in San Francisco, Portland, and Brooklyn; it's everywhere.

This is delightful stuff.

How coffee is made in a colorful shop in another country, shot in the " Vimeo style" (is this a thing?): that will always get me.

…computation over differently priced compute resources. This isn't just a false economy either. Vimeo saves up to 50% on their video transcoding bill by intelligently playing the spot, reserved, and on-demand markets. If you are ready for some advanced reindeer games then take a look at Vimeo EC2 transcoding where they explain their thinking. Even if you don't like their rules, it's the strategy that matters. This presentation was from 2011, so it would be interesting …
