Google selects bland, inoffensive non-pleated version of software that aspires to be middle class?

YOU dock her, YOU brought her.

So, pleated tighty-whities are ok now?

I...you..but...gah. No.  Just no.

Only if they have cuffs, too.

So..., this is good.

"making it easier for anyone to instantly tap massive amounts of computing power."

So it's like a bot-net.

From skimming the article it sounds like the same thing as bit torrent.

I thought it was about compressed file formats with this sentence

This technology is called Docker. You can think of it as a shipping container for things on the internet-a tool that lets online software makers neatly package their creations so they can rapidly move them from machine to machine to machine.

But only on Fridays, or "BizCasFri" as we call it around the office. Because, you know... we have to abbrev everything.

People who don't understand a technology shouldn't try to write about it.

But Wired has been doing this for like 20 years now, so.

Not even remotely close or related. It's pretty cool, and will be running most of the web.

Sounds similar to the 'run anywhere' promise behind Java.
 
2014-06-09 11:23:08 PM  
Genuine question here,  but isn't this very similar to ethereum, but without the blockchain?

If so... I think it proves there's a lot of potential for Ethereum.

I figure like most tech companies, if you are good enough and high enough up the food chain, you can wear whatever you want.

Go to an IETF meeting. Smartest people you'll ever meet and they get down how they get down.

I imagine a day where we tell stories with our velcro armpatch origami and their matching google kaleidoscope glass-es(ExtraStrength), before turning around to use eachothers backs as portions of a data-transfer-accelerator-dish, crouching down to do so and giving ourselves a chance at wiping down the mocap high definition 'sprite-glitter' or 'bubble oil' and retying our shoes while we laugh off the exchange.

I doubt humans will have much left to do with existing at that point, though.

Yeah, I fail to grasp what is so revolutionary about this and I think it has to do with the poorly written article than any shortcomings on my part.

Haven't read the article, since it seems to not want to load, but if I recall correctly, Docker allows you to build an application, and have deployment os-agnostic. You build it on a Fedora machine, it'll run the same in any environment (just Linux flavors right now, but windows could be on the horizon). The packages are all self contained, so nothing else is needed. You have the advantages of a virtual machine without the overhead.
A lot of people are very excited about where this is going. Personally, it doesn't seem like that big if a deal.

I wish Dockers still made the tech pants with the extra pockets.

Oddly, though, they didn't seem to come in larger sizes, which strikes me as a massive failure to understand
their true target market for the product.

So, it's static packaging of an app's userspace dependencies, and an abstracted API to standardize lower-level system calls across OS versions?

I don't know what you're going on about, Captain.  But if you could part dingdongs with Lieutenant Floppyhood and get back to work, I'd appreciate it.  We've got a boat to dock.

I know that's a linux environment, but now I imagine the OS emulating the trilby wearing guys
