Technology “Cool Wall”

Yesterday Shane dropped by for a chat and we discussed the concept of having a Top Gear style cool wall in our office for technologies. A humourous idea but the more I think about it, the more it makes sense. Brian recently wrote a post about how SIP sucks and Skype rules. I have to agree with Brian, SIP does suck and in so many ways that Brian was kind enough not to mention. I feel my trashing of the protocol requires no more verbosity than to say that it will definitely be featuring in the seriously uncool section of our cool wall. Meanwhile HTTP is in the sub-zero fridge at the opposite end. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Great idea, count me in from the other side of the atrium.

    And I’d put J2EE down in the tepid swamp end. Even JSP and Swing is a PITA compared to what I was doing a month ago in Ruby on Rails (which is pretty cool, I’d rank it highly.)

    Who will be the arbiter though? Some people probably have a fetish for J2EE and want it higher than I would ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Just like in Top Gear, those who are taller will use their height advantage to determine what sucks and what does not ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll have to get started on a suitable structure for our board now…
