We usually don’t post ads (except for all the ads we post…), but this one actually made me laugh my ass off. Not only is the kid cute, but what he says is too freakin’ much. Bravo.
I know, ninjas, I know. The Semi-rere Mickey D’s ad of the Week, AND the Japanese Show of the Week are two features that have been severely lacking around here. I ain’t ashamed. And, guess what? Chicken butt!

Back to the philosophy of science, which we’ll artificially break down into two schools, the incrementalist and the revolutionary. The incrementalist believes that there are memes which are filtering through society which will eventually manifest themselves. If Newton didn’t stand on the shoulders of giants and write down the Calculus, Leibniz would have. Some people are better at collating ideas than others, but if any one genius were hit by a bus tomorrow, then the sciences would continue to advance. The revolutionary theory states that certain geniuses push forward the frontiers single-handedly. If Einstein hadn’t worked out the Lorentz equations, nobody else on Earth would have for a long time to come. (Source)
The conventional wisdom inside most companies, and even within most IT organizations, is that the cause of application degradation invariably is the network. This piece of conventional wisdom leads to a new management metric — the mean time to innocence (MTTI). The MTTI is how long it takes for the networking organization to prove it is not the network causing the degradation. Once that task is accomplished, it is common to assume some other component of IT such as the servers must be at fault.
