Oxide and Friends Twitter Space: June 13th, 2022
The Rise and Fall of DEC
We've been holding a Twitter Space weekly on Mondays at 5p for about an hour. Even though it's not (yet?) a feature of Twitter Spaces, we have been recording them all; here is the recording for our Twitter Space for June 13th, 2022.
In addition to Bryan Cantrill and Adam Leventhal, speakers on June 13th included Tom Lyon, Dan Cross, Tim Bray, Ian Grunert, and XXX. (Did we miss your name and/or get it wrong? Drop a PR!)
Some of the topics we hit on, in the order that we hit them:
- Pronunciation and mispronunciation
- Bryan's DEC reading list:
- The Ultimate Entrepreneur by Glenn Rifkin, George Harrar
