[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:28:22] <mloskot> Conclusion: Toyota was right (they are Agile), General Motors was wrong (they use: single-manager leadership)
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:28:29] <seven> Wears a tie
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:28:33] <mloskot> Tyler for president!
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:28:42] <seven> more stats
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:28:48] <seven> this is the conf of the stats
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:28:58] <seven> flashy background for the slides
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:28:59] <seven> :-)
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:29:06] <mloskot> a tie? what that heck? somebody reminds Tyler the geeks vs suits talk 2 years ago :)
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:29:08] <seven> Does it matter whether he does things? 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:29:10] <seven> Sure!
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:29:18] <seven> Join up
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:29:29] <danmo> 42 is the answer... what's the question?
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:29:30] <mloskot> seven: tell something about laptops, what laptops the speakers use?
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:29:33] <seven> pie charts used throughout... oh not. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:29:34] <mloskot> any eee pc?
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:29:46] <seven> they are routed through some gigantic machinery
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:29:55] <seven> no box to be seen, just monitors
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:30:06] <mloskot> :(

[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:30:51] <mloskot> where are the real hackers? where is crschmidt hacking new fancy services holding his small powerbook with completely broken case and the whole meat visible?
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:31:03] <ticheler> no surprise I can't keep up...
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:31:06] <seven> they all missed to come to down under
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:31:14] <seven> local chapters
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:31:17] <seven> around 40
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:31:30] <seven> was great to see at the AGM yesterday
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:31:45] <seven> lots of lanugages, cultures, countries
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:32:04] <seven> Ohloh stats
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:32:12] <seven> development continues to grow
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:32:25] <seven> seems like we havee been coding for thousans of man years. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:32:30] <seven> 10 million lines of code. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:32:42] <seven> Who on earth is ever going to debug this?
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:32:57] <seven> And when will this code start to develop it's own intelligence and take over
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:32:58] <seven> ?
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:33:06] <ticheler> currently 550 committers on OSGeo software
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:33:18] <seven> Economy hit, (again that crazed Meme) so this year we have a few less

[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:34:04] <seven> Thanks!
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:34:24] <mloskot> Over the top?
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:34:32] <seven> more than 1k
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:34:45] <seven> you can write that in scientific notation... :-)

[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:35:23] <seven> Universit of South Wales
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:35:23] <mloskot> re scientific, here it is http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=1000
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:36:03] * seven leans back and takes a break
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:36:35] <seven> he annouces that he wants to be a lurker - listen more than to talk to us
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:36:57] <seven> to learn what FOSS can do to their 30 year tradition of modelling
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:37:12] <seven> he mentions "bug free"...
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:37:23] <mloskot> ...introduce more bugs
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:37:25] <seven> The Earth's climate is changing. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:37:30] <mloskot> ;-)
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:37:40] <seven> Finally it seems like it is not a discussion any more. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:37:55] <seven> We messed the world up and now?
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:38:00] <seven> We go fly to down under. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:38:03] <seven> Huh. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:38:06] <mloskot> The Earth climate is a self-modifying code performing multi processing tasks, quite hard to debug
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:38:33] <seven> Debug earth's climate is easy: Remove humanity
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:38:44] <seven> says a dedicated Borg...
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:38:53] <mloskot> we need to hurry to release new versions of our software ASAP, before the Earth go down
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:39:21] <mloskot> seven: right, that sounds like a reasonable patch
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:39:43] <nhv> In the September 1958 issue of Harper's Betty Friedan, pre-“Feminine Mystique,” was busy working as a journalist. wrote about “The Coming Ice Age,” (registration required) a gem in the annals of environmental historiography. “Although scientists do not agree on its significance, they have observed an increasingly rapid warming and rising of the ocean in recent years,” Friedan...

[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:39:47] <nhv> ...preceded by...
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:39:49] <nhv> ...such a warming of climate.”
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:39:57] <nhv> sorry couldn't resist :-)
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:40:08] <seven> nhv: You are welcome. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:40:40] <seven> We are successfull emmitting 9qkm each year.
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:40:50] <seven> That looks like aa big pile. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:40:59] <mloskot> nhv: hi
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:40:59] <seven> How do we know? 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:41:14] <seven> We've been busily collecting data. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:41:29] <seven> Nobody will ever be able to say :We didn't know. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:41:47] * nhv admits that he initially got started building ossimPlanet to get global tool for seeing things climate change
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:42:01] <nhv> 'like' climate change
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:42:10] <seven> Oceans acidify
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:42:50] <seven> Basic theory: Its just a physics problem. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:43:21] <seven> We basically have not changed the models in 50 years. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:43:32] <seven> Which does not render them any bad
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:43:48] <seven> Means we know much longer than just a few years.
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:43:53] <seven> We just did not listen. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:44:00] Quit jmckenna has left this server ("cya!").
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:44:14] <seven> The climate model is too complex.
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:44:19] <seven> It cannot be computed. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:44:49] <seven> very, very complex models of software
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:45:13] <acuster> the climate model or the climate itself?

[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:49:52] <seven> climate models are written in Fortran
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:49:58] <seven> because that is what best works

[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:50:43] <mloskot> ...of course, model should take it into account :)
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:50:45] <darkblue_B> the flea should know where the dog is headed
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:50:49] <acuster> me wonders how anyone would know that that is what 'works best'
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:50:59] <seven> crschmidt: He requests us to write our web appes with FORTRAN because that will be the best we can do. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:51:14] <seven> Don't grown. Thats just what it is. :-)
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:51:24] <seven> "groan" that was

[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:52:08] <seven> Data sets now > 1 Pbyte
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:52:41] <seven> Virtually all climate models are not available as Open Source!
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:53:14] <seven> GISS and CCSM, both USA, are the only ones available as FOSS
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:53:17] <acuster> Does not sound like an oceans guy, or he would talk about the feedback of sensors into the models right about now.
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:53:38] <seven> ECHO-G from Germany can be used with some restrictions
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:54:03] <seven> One reason might be that nobody ever asked to have the climate models.
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:54:14] <acuster> http://www.giss.nasa.gov/research/modeling/
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:54:18] <nhv> atmosphere models have plenty of feedback from models also many more sensors then from the oceans
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:54:22] <seven> And it needs lots of funds to keep the software running
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:54:34] <acuster> http://www.ccsm.ucar.edu/
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:54:48] <nhv> from sensors long history of atmos sensors
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:54:50] <acuster> cool
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:54:57] <seven> We (that is the scientists) lack funding to support 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:55:07] <seven> No code repositories?
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:55:17] <seven> Huh? You really mena that?
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:55:22] <mloskot> Before we finish the whole process of instrumenting the Earth with our fancy sensors and networks, it'll be quite late anyways
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:55:38] <seven> millions of line of code. You keep them on a floppy?
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:56:00] <seven> They get battled by the sceptics
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:56:05] <seven> strategic issues, etc. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:56:27] <seven> Very low resourcing and no culture...
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:56:35] <nhv> climate models need many years of sensor data
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:56:35] <seven> :-)
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:56:36] <seven> ...of Open Source
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:56:41] <mloskot> seven: tell them about github or bitbucket
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:56:46] <mloskot> sourceforge.net is good oto
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:56:53] <acuster> cvs, make them suffer
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:57:04] * seven unfortunatelly can't edit the slides on screen.
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:57:10] <mloskot> crap
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:57:22] <seven> acuster: Better then nothing. They have NOTHING now. Can you imagine?
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:57:22] <acuster> now that would be community commentary
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:57:31] <acuster> yes, I can imagine
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:57:39] <seven> So, why Open OSurce. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:57:42] <acuster> perhaps they have some inline documentation but probably not
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:57:45] <mloskot> perhaps somebody could turn desktop sharing on on the presentation computer
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:57:56] <seven> Because open source is more reliable! Ha!
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:57:58] <acuster> lots of scientists do not even use whitespace and carriage returns much
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:58:16] <seven> 1 million lines of code 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:58:18] <mloskot> seven: what they understand as reliability

[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:59:25] * nhv has borrowed much from cdat on occasion note it is Python :-)
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:59:38] <acuster> it is in python or python is the glue?
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:59:42] <seven> climate modellers need thesupport of real software engineers. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [09:59:45] <nhv> the glue
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:00:00] <seven> That will clobber them with a baseball bat if they (the scientists) touch the code. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:00:04] <seven> That's a statement
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:00:06] <seven> :-)
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:00:08] <acuster> they have no money, they aren't going to waste it on programmers.
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:00:38] <seven> This is a great challenge.
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:00:49] <nhv> many climate researchers are programmers almost by definition
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:00:55] * seven wonders whether she should dedicate a year to help them get going.

[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:01:12] <mloskot> programmer not necessary is a software engineer, he can be a code monkey
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:01:12] <seven> or rather dedicate a day to eradicate humanity right away. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:01:21] <seven> That would be a lot more effective. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:01:40] <mloskot> seven: is pizza and beer free?
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:01:58] * acuster is rooting for the insects.
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:02:05] <ticheler> you can run the biggest super computers while you can't get funding for proper software development indicates that the last one does not have your interest..
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:02:05] <seven> I guess that should be a viable investment. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:02:07] <acuster> that would be a great FOSS code sprint
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:02:10] * mloskot 's got slapped in head
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:02:16] <acuster> except that none of us know FORTRAN
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:02:21] <seven> Hehehe
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:02:29] <acuster> or very, very few of us
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:02:36] <seven> Pitman: What I want.
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:02:39] <mloskot> warm-up is necessary before every sprint, so.. ;-)
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:02:42] <ticheler> lack of funding is a bad argument at that stage
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:02:45] <seven> I will ask him to give us that slide. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:02:48] <mloskot> fortran warm-up sounds great
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:03:24] * seven is runing out of power. This silly auditorium has no wall plugs. Why don't they ever givve us power in these places?
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:03:37] <acuster> gluing everything together with python sounds more likely
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:03:41] <seven> Latest sexiest language
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:03:56] <seven> NO: We need FORTRAN. Got that!
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:04:14] <nhv> :-)
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:04:23] <seven> Dialog with the modellers is required. 
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:04:43] <mloskot> seven: you don't want to participate in the climage change, do you?
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:04:48] <mloskot> so, don't look for a plug
[Thu Oct 22 2009] [10:04:56] <seven> Got me.
