So, I’m sitting in a 3 day training class on enterprise application architecture. In other words, I’m surrounded by techies. One guy had a strange but cool-looking box approximately the size of an iPhone strapped to his laptop.
The following conversation ensued,
Geek #1: What’s that? [pointing at the box]
Geek #2: It’s extra storage to back up my megafiles.
Geek#3: You gotta get in the cloud, man. [I imagine some obscure language spoken by Nerdish refugees]
Geek#1: How much does it hold?
As Geek #2 was about to answer, Geek #3 very cleverly (I assume) interjects – “20 MB!”
The response is instantly followed by the most ungodly chorus of every socially unacceptable noise one can possibly make with one’s mouth. And although I was too dumb to be amused, I was, on the other hand, immediately turned on.
