The Story Behind #115: The Cloud Crashes Again

Early in my career (i.e. the '90s) the "cloud" had not yet been invented. Servers either lived on prem or in a datacenter. Datacenter servers were the worst. You'd have to drive across town, dig around for your datacenter badge and server rack keys, sign in and then navigate rows and rows of server racks in an icebox to find the one computer you were looking for. Once you found it you'd switch over the KVM, confirm the server was down, power cycle it, confirm it came back on, close and lock everything back up and hurry back to the warmth outside. With all of that came the confidence that when something broke, it was in my power to fix it. Today, with all of the conveniences of the cloud, one of the biggest things that I feel like I've lost is just that: confidence that I have the power to fix anything that breaks.

A large part of taleas’ merch is hand made, hand printed, hand stitched, hand sewn, hand glued or some combination of the above in Austin, Texas. I have a strong passion for solid business ethics, scalability, sustainability, and repeatability, and all of these drive the quality of products that I offer.
