In presenting my plans for our global systems engineering organization,
I put up a slide entitled Ownz0red
. It was a tip of the
beanie to Cory Doctorow
, who published
a short story with that title and a reference to completely, totally
understanding and owning a particular subject. That's the kind of
technical evangelism I'm looking for in our systems engineers: market
leading, opportunity-defining, game-owning.
podcast of Doctorow's short story is now available, so if you
want to understand the reference at its root cause, you can literally
tune in at your leisure. It's the ultimate systems administrator parable:
it's about getting root access for your body.
