ITV hosts star-studded video call to get people talking about mental health- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

ITV has brought its roster of stars out in full force to reinforce the importance of staying connected and reaching out to people who might be struggling during lockdown.
The latest leg of ITV’s ‘Britain Get Talking‘ campaign, the work responds to YouGov research that claims 55% of the UK public are more worried than usual about our families mental health.
Launching at the start of Mental Health Awareness Week, the spot sees the stars gather online, appearing at first to be catching up with each other during the lockdown. With help from his daughter, Gordon Ramsey gets online, David Walliams apologises for being late because of “dad stuff“ and Loraine Kelly comments on it being “a funny old time.“
After the stars make light conversation, Jim Stewart asks “and who hasn’t felt over the last few weeks?“ Smoothly directing the discussion to the viewer at home, Walliams juts in, “a bit lost?“ followed by “and out of sorts?“ asked by Julie Etchingham.
Making use of the typical interruptions and technical glitches of real-life of video calls, the celebrities share a poignant messaging about checking in with loved ones.
Over the course of the ad, 20 famous faces join in the call, including Will.i.am, Anna Friel, Laura Whitmore, Tinie Tempah, Maggie Alphonsi, Phillip Schofield, Holly Willoughby, Harry Redknapp, Davina McCall, John Barnes, Julie Etchingham, Iain Stirling, Emma Willis, Jason Watkins, Sheila Hancock, Charlene White and Ant and Dec.
Discussing the latest campaign, Clare Phillips, director of social purpose at ITV, said: “The Britain Get Talking campaign has been playing an important role in encouraging all of us to stay in touch and talk with each other, especially as over half of Britons are more conscious of the need to look after our mental wellbeing at the moment.“
“With kindness as the theme of Mental Health Awareness Week, we’re upping the level – let’s reach out to those who might not be expecting a call, as they might be the ones who need it the most,“ she continued.
Since ITV returned to the ‘Britain Get Talking‘ campaign at the beginning of lockdown in March, it has recorded 6.1 million people taking immediate action – whether that be a text or a call to a family member or a friend in need.
On 21 March, it paused live TV to bring a message of support to viewers struggling with social distancing. Addressing viewers directly during Saturday Night Takeaway, Ant and Dec took a moment to remind them to stay indoors, keep talking, and look after each other.
The move was part of ITV’s five-year mental wellness campaign, ‘Get Britain Talking‘. While the next stage was due to launch in May, ITV felt the need to bring it forward and brought this all together in just over a week.
The next stage of the campaign saw ITV go deeper on its original message to get people talking, by pointing them towards who might need it most.
Imitating a phone’s contact list, the copy in the simple print ads challenged viewers to think about people that might need them right now and to look to the device in their hands to make the difference.
And in April, ITV halted the transmission of ‘Claps for Carers’ to deliver a poignant message from those working against the coronavirus on the NHS frontline. The tribute saw NHS workers thank the UK public for staying indoors, as well as offering their support and love during this national crisis.

Brands need to stop talking and start doing- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

It’s fair to say that ‘less talk, more do’ is sound advice at the best of times, but it is particularly prescient for brands at the current time with the Covid-19 at it’s peak. People aren’t interested in good wishes, they need actions and tangible help. Brands would be well advised to shut up at the moment.
Before this piece goes any further there are two important things to acknowledge; the first is that marketing is of miniscule importance at the moment, and of no importance compared to the people on the frontline fighting, and dealing with, the coronavirus.
Everything is relative, and for those people that do work in marketing and those that rely on its success for millions of businesses and livelihoods, it is worth exploring for improvement. The second is that brands should not stop investing in marketing as it’s more important now than ever. The key point is how they should be doing it- with actions not words.
Sadly, it seems many brands have taken the current crisis as a cue to either slash marketing budgets or, worse, pump out meaningless superficial ads and messages from CEOs. While a few have got it right. It seems the brands that are still active fall into two categories – the Carers and the Doers.
The Carers are really keen for you to know that they really care. Really care. Really keen for you to know. This manifests itself in the form of near incessant emails letting you know how much they understand how tough this situation must be. They really understand. Ideally accompanied with a scanned in signature from the CEO. To show that digitally artificial personal touch.
The Carers also like to use made-for-awards ads to show how enormous their social conscience is. Mainly by separating their logo in an absolutely genius bit of social distancing. It’s just a shame Cannes has been canned this year.
The thing that unites The Carers is a consistent lack of doing anything remotely helpful or innovative. The biggest culprits here are the banks- a group with the largest potential for tangible usefulness through product adaptation, yet also the most lacking in anything beyond the standard “we care” emails. Also, a special shout out here for the brands offering publicity-friendly free or discounted stuff for NHS workers while also operating elaborate tax avoidance schemes that starve the NHS of money. But paying taxes doesn’t win Lions – duh.
Show, don’t tell
The Doers on the other hand are the brands that are using smart marketing- genuine Four Ps marketing- to contribute something useful to their customers new and old, and hopefully wider society too, all while effectively marketing their business.
Hat tip to the numerous alcohol manufacturers repurposing their factories to make hand sanitizer, Defected and others creating virtual festivals, Burger King giving people the recipe to make Whoppers at home (vs McDonalds doing the social distanced logo thing). There are some great examples amongst supermarkets; a Danish shop using pricing to stop panic buying (hand sanitizer for £3, two for £100), Tesco guaranteeing 12 weeks full pay for all employees over 70 so they can self-isolate (actual purpose-lead marketing, not the nonsense usually spoken about), and Ocado removing bottled water from deliveries to increase the number of deliveries they can make.
This is proper actions-speak-louder-than-words, proof-over-promise, marketing and comms.
There’s a lot of talk about how consumers will make future purchase decisions based on how brands behave during this crisis. That if brands are seen to be insensitive consumers will never come back. I’m not sure I buy that. I think Wetherspoons will be just as busy again, in the same way that if consumers cared about corporate behaviour above all other factors the serial tax dodgers wouldn’t be the behemoths they are. But, there is no doubt that brands can grow, and businesses can become more secure during this time by behaving smartly, creatively and considerately.
People don’t need a hug from brands, they need actions. Don’t tell me you’re here for me, do something that proves it.

Return of the phone call: why talking beats texting when you’re in isolation | Life and style- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Name: Phone call.
Er… Hello? Hello.
Hello! Hello!
What the hell is this? This is a phone call.
Really? Why, what’s wrong? Is there an emergency? Well, no. Apart from, you know, the coronavirus emergency.
Well, can’t you just send a text? Or an email? Because it’s good to talk. Especially now that everyone’s supposed to be confined to their own home.
Since when has it been good to talk on the phone? Ask properly, the Pass notes way.
Sorry. Age: 144 years. The first telephone call was made by the Scottish inventor of the telephone, Alexander Graham Bell, on 10 March 1876.
Was it to his grandmother, to thank her for the birthday book token? No, to his assistant, Thomas Watson, who was in another room.
And what did Alexander say to Thomas? He said: “Mr Watson, come here – I want to see you.”
Ah, that’s beautiful. I see what you mean about it being good to talk. It was just a demonstration, to show it was possible to do what Bell described as “talk with electricity”. Other conversations are available and have been had since. Back in the day, everyone used to spend hours and hours nattering away on the old dog and bone.
Yeah, but no one does it any more. We text. Often in groups – like written banter. It’s almost like being out. Does it have that personal closeness you get with a proper phone call?
OK, so there’s FaceTime, WhatsApp video calls, Skype and the rest. They’re better still because you get to see the person you’re talking to. True. And, again, they are undeniably brilliant. But there’s a performance involved, distractions, people coming and going. If you want to actually say something to someone, just call them. Nothing beats the reassuring intimacy of a human voice straight into the ear.
What are you wearing? I’m not … NO! Not like THAT! (Although that is also possible). I’m talking about the importance of conversation. And with social distancing …
Of course, that’s why you called. It’s just about the nicest way of staying connected.
Impossible to deny, it has been fun. Now pick up the phone, call someone else. Sing to them if you like.
Really? What should I sing? Well, there’s a certain Stevie Wonder song I can think of. A bit of Blondie, maybe. ELO…
Anything more recent? Or you could just talk.
Do say: “Mum, it’s just me, nothing important. Checking in, calling for a chat.”
Don’t say: “Everyone’s going down the pub. Last one there gets the drinks in.”

The F word: Why consumers can’t stop talking about finance brands- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Forget the stereotype of Brits squirming at the idea of talking about money. Turns out, consumers love to talk about finance brands that are getting it right (and wrong).
In November, YouGov published its list of the UK’s most recommended brands. Three of the top five are financial: Monzo, TransferWise and MoneySavingExpert.com.
A valuable marketing opportunity
Whether we’re struggling to pay rent or eyeing up the latest designer bag, money is never far from our minds (and conversations). When our friends talk about how they’ve managed to buy their first home, invest in a cool start-up, or insure their adorable yet accident prone puppy, we listen. And then we consider following in their footsteps.
The chances of us acting on a brand recommendation are even higher when seeking advice on money-related matters.
If I see a shirt I like, I’ll buy it. If I see a house I like, I’ll embark on a long decision-making process that starts with talking to the people I trust (and inevitably ends with realising I can’t afford it). If my dad recommends a mortgage provider, I’ll contact them. Even if that provider’s new customer incentive isn’t the best on the market.
Create a community of loyal customers
Google “which bank should I join” and you’ll see lots of comparison sites. This means consumers can make informed decisions without trawling through endless websites, but it’s also reductive.
Finance brands are forced to sell themselves solely on price, with no consideration of their service, brand positioning, or other important factors.
This has resulted in an unsustainable battle of one-upmanship. Natwest and RBS offer a £150 bonus; HSBC offers £175. As much as consumers would like otherwise, banks can’t endlessly increase their new customer offer to be the best out there. It also means the majority of consumers join financial brands with zero emotional investment. And that presents a major challenge: customer retention.
Nutmeg: a finance brand benefitting from a referral marketing channel. Once a new customer has claimed their reward, their head can easily be turned by another provider’s offer. Particularly if your financial brand focuses more on acquisition than retention.
In comparison, customers who sign up to brands via their friend’s recommendation already have a positive outlook. They’re willing to overlook apparent drawbacks – like not having the best sign-up incentive or an online-only presence – because they trust you’re a good brand.
And they’re three times more likely to recommend your business to others, continuing the virtuous cycle and delivering more long-term customers.
Look at Monzo, the disruptor bank that (until this year) focused 80% of its marketing on word-of-mouth. It raised £20m in three hours of crowdfunding and grew its customer base to more than a million users. That’s how powerful a community of loyal advocates who actively recommended your brand to others can be.
Supercharge sustainable business growth
49% of consumers are likely to recommend a finance brand. Provide a great product coupled with a brilliant service and, as YouGov’s survey proves, this number rockets.
It won’t be long before your customer acquisition and retention numbers speak for themselves.
Courtney Wylie, VP of product and marketing at Mention Me.

Man Utd highlights importance of talking about mental health with Ignored campaign- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Manchester United has launched Ignored, a new campaign to raise awareness of the importance of talking about mental health.
Centred on a poignant film featuring words of encouragement from members of the men’s and women’s teams, the campaign recognises that people with mental health issues can often feel ignored and left to suffer in silence.
It also urges the club’s fans and viewers to think about the impact of the language they use and consider how words such as “psycho” and “mad” can alienate those experiencing mental health problems.
The club’s group managing director, Richard Arnol,d said: “Manchester United has a long-standing commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion. As part of that commitment, we have a responsibility to raise awareness and tackle the important issues in society, such as mental health.
Ignored follows on from the club’s Hatred campaign last year which called out racism both on and off the pitch. It also dovetails with the nationwide ‘Heads Up’ mental health initiative and #allredallequal diversity drive.

The lost art of having a chat: what happened when I stopped texting and started talking | Technology – Blog – 10 minute

Like most people I know, my Weekly Screen Report is obscene. Every Sunday, when the notification pops up to tell me the hours I have wasted, mostly texting, I think about all the things I could have done. Finished Middlemarch. Started Middlemarch. But as I have my phone in my hand, I scroll through Instagram instead. I send an article or a joke to a friend, a picture of the dog to the family WhatsApp, catch up on someone else’s night out. Recently, I clocked up – and I’m ashamed as I write this – six hours and 29 minutes of phone usage in a single day. I have had days where I’ve barely been awake that long. Messages is my most used app. I am talking all the time.
But I am rarely talking. For the chatterboxes among us, this is a time of upheaval. The long, spontaneous chat on the phone is going the way of the fax. The percentage of households with a landline that’s used to make calls is declining every year, from 83% in 2016 to 73% in 2019; the number of calls made on house phones plummeted by 17% in 2018 alone. We still use our mobiles to talk – in 2018, Ofcom surveyed mobile users for three months and found only 6% of them never made a single call – but we are not talking in any great depth. The same study found that over 80% of calls were shorter than five minutes, and the majority were under 90 seconds. I looked at my own recent call list: three minutes, two minutes, five minutes at a push. What can you say in that time? You can only make the point you’ve called to make.
I know many will welcome this as a kind of freedom. The very idea of talking on the phone invokes horror among those who claim to loathe it. There are thousands of memes explaining the many ways that talking, not texting, is rude, basically criminal. Calling is not time-efficient, ill-suited to the attention economy, where all eyes must be on several screens at once. You can send messages when you’re doing something else – watching The Irishman, or having a bath, or even talking to another person in real life. My dad recently marvelled at me being able to text with two thumbs; I marvel at teenagers being able to text while talking to you and not looking at the screen. Once technology gave us the ability to easily screen calls, we ran with it. We can ignore the relative who phones with a list of recent hometown tragedies, the work call we don’t feel like taking, our chattiest of friends who might not let us go for an hour. But what happens if you are that chatty friend?
Smart phones are smart enough to tell you that you’re using them too much. The dumb phone is making a comeback. I wondered if it was possible to ride this wave of the digital detox and make a deliberate effort to call instead of text. I wanted to see if it would change my relationships, particularly the ones I had grown lazy about maintaining. The plan was to stay off text and DMs for a solid month. I was fed up of paddling in the shallows. I wanted to swim. If I needed to speak to someone, I’d have to call them.

‘If the phone rings after 7pm, one of us has to say, “Who’s dead now?”’ Illustration: Leon Edler/The Observer
When the writer Elizabeth Wurtzel died in January, a piece she wrote in 2013, about her “one-night stand of a life”, began to circulate again, and it contained one paragraph that hit me particularly hard. “Look at how we live,” she wrote. “We communicate in text messages and emails; even those of us old enough to have lived in a world where landline was not a word because it’s all there was have fallen into this lazy substitute for human contact. I have.”
Who hasn’t? It should be easier than ever to talk. There are limitless outlets for publishing our thoughts, endless ways to begin a kind of conversation. Voice memos are popular, particularly among young people, but they’re a halfway house, still one-sided. We talk with one eye on efficiency, and it strangles what is so good about it – the spontaneity, the lack of ability to control what happens when two people are rambling on to each other.
The psychologist Sherry Turkle has been studying the impact of computers on human psychology since the early 1980s, and in 2015 she published Reclaiming Conversation, in which she referred to “the edited life” that we live now. She spoke to teachers who observed that their students seemed to develop empathetic skills at a slower rate than they would be expected to. “Face-to-face conversation is the most human – and humanising – thing we do,” she wrote. “Fully present to one another, we learn to listen. It’s where we develop the capacity for empathy. It’s where we experience the joy of being heard, of being understood.”
Are we losing that joy of being heard? Most offices are quieter places than they have ever been. The open-plan rooms I have worked in over the last decade or so are filled with people wearing headphones, silently tapping away on Gchat or Slack. Even workplaces that should invite conversation are making it easier to avoid talking at all. If you stay in a budget hotel, you can check yourself in and out. If you scan your onions on the supermarket’s self- service checkout, you don’t need to chat about what you’re planning to do with them. When it was common enough to be considered a problem, making a phone call on public transport used to be frowned upon. In the early 00s, Dom Joly built a TV career out of shouting “Hello!” into an oversized mobile in public places. Train carriages are now full of heads bowed, illuminated by blue light. A few years ago the Daily Mash ran a much-shared satirical news story: “A northern man has left a trail of terror across London by attempting to interact socially with everyone he meets.” And even in the north, screens have begun to dominate. Quiet carriages are becoming redundant. We are making ourselves quiet.
In 2014, someone set up a family WhatsApp group. Before then, I spoke to my family on the phone all the time. Now, we spend more time in touch with each other than ever before, yet I miss them. It’s a noticeboard, more than a conversation. The person I still speak to most often, and for longest, is my nan, who is 83. She has a mobile, but doesn’t text. The other day I phoned to see how she was, and she told me a long story about how she was never supposed to have the name that she has, but there were 23 pubs in the village she was born in, and her father stopped in at most of them on the way to register her birth. By the time he got to the clerk, he’d forgotten what he’d been told to call her, so he named her after the clerk instead.
Verbal conversations are unpredictable and unwieldy in a way that those written down are not, because when we type or tap, we are in control, of our side, at least. This ruthless chat efficiency has excised the flab but, I realise, I love the flab. It’s where the excitement happens. I wanted to revive those conversations with everyone. So in my month of no texts, the WhatsApp group would be the first thing to go. I went to delete the app, pressed my finger on the screen, let it wobble – and then I stopped. There was a video of my niece dancing in front of the TV that I wanted to show my partner and I thought, I can just look at the photos and videos, every now and then. Can’t I?

Dr Scott Wark is a research associate at Warwick University who studies culture, technology and social media; his PhD thesis was about memes. I called him to see if we are actually moving away from verbal communication. He was in Chile for work, and I couldn’t get through until I emailed to check he was there. But when we finally managed it, he was more optimistic than I had anticipated.
He does believe that people are less willing to make calls. “It feels like more of an imposition. If I want to talk to my boss, we schedule a time to make a call. She doesn’t just call.” He points out that social media gives us far more control over a chat. “Even though there’s an idea that everyone’s addicted to social media and constantly checking updates, you can ignore a notification of a message. If I’m chatting to a friend in Australia, and I stop responding to her, I’ve probably just gone to sleep and I’ll pick it up the next day. It’s a continuous conversation that doesn’t interrupt anything and is parallel to whatever else we’re both doing.”
Wark disputes the idea that we are becoming more disconnected; he says it’s important to make a distinction between disconnection and distraction. If people are becoming more mindful about their phone usage, though, does he think calling might make a comeback?

Texting trims the flab of chatting. But I love that flab

“What people are responding to, with the idea of a ‘digital detox’, is this overload of distractions. That is a huge problem, because there are all these demands on our cognitive capacity and that’s overwhelming, and exhausting. We’re spread thin.”
It’s good to know we’re all at it. There is a running joke in my house that if the phone rings after 7pm, without a text to warn that a call is coming, one of us has to say, “Who’s dead now?” It’s not ha-ha funny, but it speaks volumes about what the once humble phone call has come to mean. I thought it was just us, that we’d developed gallows humour after a year of the kind of calls that drain the blood from the body, that in saying the worst out loud, it somehow would ward off more bad news.
Wark said that he, too, thinks the worst if he has an unexpected missed call. When I talked to my friends about it, I realised that most people feel the same way. A phone call, out of the blue, is alarming. It’s a harbinger of doom, its ringtone a tiny scythe. The first thing I say when I answer the phone is usually, “What’s wrong?”
On the first day of not texting for a month, a friend had some bad news about her health. I wanted to know how she was. But I thought calling would alarm her, because it has become alarming. So I texted, and we had a text chat, while the telly was on. Calling really would have felt like an imposition. I thought I’d call my girlfriend to see what she fancied for dinner, but she was on the tube, and the missed call made her worried that something had happened, so we ended up texting about that, too. My month of not texting was barely even a day old. I failed completely.
I am wary of nostalgia. Nobody wants to hear another old person chirping that it was better in their day. When I spoke to Dr Wark, he sounded hopeful about the changing nature of communication. “I’m 31, and I’ve been chatting to people online since I was nine. Talking to people on text is totally naturalised,” he says. “Younger people are more willing to FaceTime one another now, and be watching TV, without really saying anything, just hanging out. There’s a different kind of presence involved.” There’s an argument that all this texting facilitates people meeting up in real life anyway, he says, and research to back that up. We may be more distracted than before, but we are more connected. I ask Wark if he’s a texter or a caller himself. It depends, he says, on the person, and his relationship to them. He calls his mum, he texts his partner. “But personally, I would prefer to meet my friends and just talk to them in a pub.”

I could not stop texting, but in the search for a better connection, I did start to call more. I started to phone to cancel plans, and it proved a good litmus test: having to talk about it made me consider whether I genuinely wanted to cancel, or whether I was just being idle. I phoned a friend to say that, honestly, I couldn’t be bothered to travel for 45 minutes to see a film I wasn’t interested in and he said that, honestly, neither could he. We talked for half an hour. My girlfriend is often away for work and it’s become clear that talking on the phone once every couple of days is more substantial and infinitely nicer than constant texting about humdrum stuff.
On the Failed Day of No Texts, it became horribly apparent just how compelled I was to share every little detail of what was happening to me. I dropped a plate, and went to tell someone about it, anyone. But to realise I might have to call someone to tell them I was clumsy, which they already knew, made it seem totally redundant. I felt free, somehow, from the obligation to transmit the boring bits of my life as rolling news. By texting less and calling more, I was reminded that people are almost always nicer on the phone than on text. Face to face, they’re even nicer than that. Arguments are resolved more quickly. It is much more difficult to be rude, and we could all use a bit of that.
Talking on the phone scares people. Technology has created a new rigidity when it comes to conversation. Calling is usually planned, scheduled, and to call is to really mean it. I still text, all the time. I feel inordinately proud of myself if my screen time drops below three hours a day. But I am calling more, too. I am back in the habit, and for me, it is infinitely more satisfying to have a conversation that is two-sided and flexible and unpredictable. I just send a text to say I’m going to call first.

Kids are secretly ‘talking’ to each other in class using AirPods and apps – Blog – 10 minute

In a nutshell: As technology becomes more advanced, children are finding more ways to take advantage of it. The latest trick involves using some of Apple’s AirPods and a text-to-speech app to “talk” in class without the teacher realizing.
Those of a certain age may recall when throwing rolled up pieces of paper containing written messages was the best way of surreptitiously communicating in classrooms. In today’s digital age, things are a lot more high-tech.
In a TikTok video from user Leilana that was shared on Twitter, two students, each with a pair of Apple’s buds, show how to have a ‘conversation’ in class. It involves first swapping one AirPod with each other. Then, they use Google Translate to type a message and play it, allowing the other person to hear what is being said. While Google’s software is used in the clip, any text-to-speech app should work fine.

The method still requires students to use their phones without the teacher noticing, so why not just send text messages instead? But being able to essentially ‘talk’ to a friend in class without anyone realizing will doubtlessly be welcomed by bored kids, or even adults working in offices.
We named Apple’s newest earbuds, the AirPods Pro, as joint winners in the ‘wireless buds’ category in our Best of Headphones feature. It shares top spot with Samsung’s Galaxy Buds, which, despite being over $100 cheaper than their rivals, offer better sound quality—according to Consumer Reports, at least.

Kubernetes co-founder Craig McLuckie is as tired of talking about Kubernetes as you are – gpgmail


“I’m so tired of talking about Kubernetes . I want to talk about something else,” joked Kubernetes co-founder and VP of R&D at VMware Craig McLuckie during a keynote interview at this week’s Cloud Foundry Summit in The Hague. “I feel like that 80s band that had like one hit song — Cherry Pie.”

He doesn’t quite mean it that way, of course (though it makes for a good headline, see above), but the underlying theme of the conversation he had with Cloud Foundry executive director Abby Kearns was that infrastructure should be boring and fade into the background, while enabling developers to do their best work. “We still have a lot of work to do as an industry to make the infrastructure technology fade into the background and bring forwards the technologies that developers interface with, that enable them to develop the code that drives the business, etc. […] Let’s make that infrastructure technology really, really boring. ”

What McCluckie wants to talk about is developer experience and with VMware’s intend to acquire Pivotal, it’s placing a strong bet on Cloud Foundry as one of the premiere development platforms for cloud native applications. For the longest time, the Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes ecosystem, which both share an organizational parent in the Linux Foundation, have been getting closer, but that move has accelerated in recent months as the Cloud Foundry ecosystem has finished work on some of its Kubernetes integrations.

McCluckie argues that the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, the home of Kubernetes and other cloud-native open-source projects, was always meant to be a kind of open-ended organization that focuses on driving innovation. And that created a large set of technologies that vendors can choose from. “But when you start to assemble that, I tend to think about you building up this cake which is your development stack, you discover that some of those layers of the cake, like Kubernetes, have a really good bake. They are done to perfection,” said McLuckie, who is clearly a fan of the Great British Baking show. “And other layers, you look at it and you think, wow, that could use a little more bake, it’s not quite ready yet. […] And we haven’t done a great job of pulling it all together and providing a recipe that delivers an entirely consumable experience for everyday developers.”

He argues that Cloud Foundry, on the other hand, has always focused on building that highly opinionated, consistent developer experience. “Bringing those two communities together, I think, is going to have incredibly powerful results for both communities as we start to bring these technologies together,” he said.

With the Pivotal acquisition still in the works, McCluckie didn’t really comment on what exactly this means for the path forward for Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes (which he still talked about with a lot of energy, despite being tired of it), but it’s clear that he’s looking to Cloud Foundry to enable that developer experience on top of Kubernetes that abstracts all of the infrastructure away for developers and makes deploying an application a matter of a single CLI command.

Bonus: Cherry Pie.

Trump not interested in talking Huawei with China – gpgmail


During an Oval Office press conference this week, the President told reports that the United States is currently not interesting in broaching the subject of Huawei as part of increasingly heated trade conversations with China. The statement appears to run counter to pat suggestions that he was willing to discuss the U.S. government’s blacklist of the electronics giant during trade talks.

“It’s a national security concern,” Trump said. “Huawei is a big concern of our military, of our intelligence agencies, and we are not doing business with Huawei. And we’ll see what happens with respect to China, but Huawei has been not a player that we want to talk about right now.”

Huawei’s U.S. blacklisting stems from both concerns over potential links to security and spying, as well as alleged sanctions violations. Trump has, however, previously conflated those issues brewing trade war between the superpowers, suggesting that a ban could be lifted with a new U.S.-China deal.

Recent discussions with Chinese President Xi Jinping helped ease restrictions against the company, which could be faced with devastating consequences if a full ban on partnerships with U.S. companies like Google is enacted. Trump also used the question to once again suggest that the toll of tariffs could be avoided if U.S. companies no longer relied on Chinese components and manufacturing.

The new comments appear to find Trump temporarily closing the door to discussions about Huawei in future meetings with the Chinese President, though he did not elaborate further.

Google lets David Drummond do the talking – gpgmail


Anyone wondering if Alphabet might reprimand its chief legal officer, David Drummond, for a long-ago extramarital, inter-office affair that continues to be a distraction to the company, the answer seems to be . . . not right now. Though a former subordinate outlined in greater detail than ever yesterday the “hell” she says she has endured in the years since her break-up with Drummond, including a custody battle for their son that she won, Google said today it is not sharing a statement on the matter.

Instead, we were pointed by Google to the personal statement that Drummond issued this afternoon, wherein he acknowledges the affair with Jennifer Blakely, a former senior contracts manager with the company during a time when Drummond was Google’s general counsel.

As BuzzFeed notes, he doesn’t apologize to Blakely, saying instead of their “difficult break-up 10 years ago” that “I am far from perfect and I regret my part in that.” He also emphasizes that there are “two sides to all of the conversations and details Jennifer recounts,” saying that he takes a “very different view about what happened.”

Drummond’s full statement:

It’s not a secret that Jennifer and I had a difficult break-up 10 years ago. I am far from perfect and I regret my part in that.

Her account raises many claims about us and other people, including our son and my former wife. As you would expect, there are two sides to all of the conversations and details Jennifer recounts, and I take a very different view about what happened. I have discussed these claims directly with Jennifer, and I addressed the details of our relationship with our employer at the time.

But I do want to address one claim that touches on professional matters. Other than Jennifer, I never started a relationship with anyone else who was working at Google or Alphabet. Any suggestion otherwise is simply untrue.

I know Jennifer feels wronged and understand that she wants to speak out about it. But I won’t be getting into a public back and forth about these personal matters.”

Drummond is presumably hoping that by acknowledging Blakely’s post, the affair will recede again into the background, and it might. Drummond has enjoyed the support of the company for the last 17 years, even while Google officially recognized the affair back in 2007.

On the other hand, other powerful people who’ve come under scrutiny for their decision-making have discovered they have discovered they have less control over a situation than they imagined. While Alphabet isn’t a democracy, Google employees have shown they’re willing to flex their muscle if need be to force change on the company, and Blakely’s account has seemingly infuriated anew many who say the company’s culture has always been, and continues to be discriminatory toward women.
