Rob Curley Blew My Mind

Posted: August 14th, 2005 | Author: | Filed under: Django, Python, Weblogs | 75 Comments »

A few days back I listened to this IMA Keynote by Rob Curley on IT Conversations. It blew my mind. I started out looking for some insight in to the team behind Django, The Lawrence Journal-World, lawrence.com, and so on. I got a whole lot more than I had bargained for.

If you’re involved in old media, new media, any media, or just want a glimpse of the future (I hope), please have a listen. It will be very interesting to see what happens in the next few months as Django takes flight, Rob heads to Naples (with technical backup from Eric) and Adrian telecommutes to The Washington Post

    Yeah, it’s exciting working for someone who is considered a new media celeb. Luckily it hasn’t gone to his head. I’m still not used to getting trusted into the limelight, before this job, I don’t think I’ve ever been blogged about before :b.

    I found a transcript of an earlier version of this talk, at http://www.j-lab.org/b04trans_keynote.html (by searching for some of the distinctive phrases in the audio.) It doesn’t get across the energy and enthusiasm nearly as well, of course. An excellent reminder that once you get the tools out of the way, you still have to pour a lot of energy to get everything *else* out of the way too.

    Apple presently has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, however it is currently hampered through the inability to store locally in your iPod, and it has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this type of changes, then it’ll somewhat negate this advantage for that Zune, however the 10 songs each month will still be a large plus in Zune Pass favor.
