I was talking to a group of people the other day about REST, when someone joked - "Jerry really knows little about the subject - he is always on the go." This is simply not true - I know how to relax.
In fact, I love to surf cast. It's when I do some of my best thinking. I really don't want to catch fish. In fact, when I do, I find it to be a real bother. You know- My son, daugther and relatives getting all upset- call me a "fish murderer", etc. But, let's be real here... It's not like the fish are jumping out of the ocean, into my hands. In fact, I think I've caught just one fish in the past five years. And for the record, I threw it back... Actually, now that I think of it- fishing is kind of stressful, not RESTful.
Speaking about REST... Over the Holidays, I had Floyd Marinescu from InfoQ drop in with video equipment in tow. Floyd does some really nice work, and asked me some decent questions regarding Project Zero and Restful SOA. It was kind of weird sitting in front of the camera with a bright light shining in my face… but after a while I forgot the camera was there and started doing my thing. The real trick was for Floyd to get me to shut up (The interview is 32 mins long :-)
