Rupert in the scene

Rupert in Code Monkey at Work

After the success of "Code Monkey at Work", where Rupert was the young hero of the movie, Rupert was invited to participate in a cameo of "Aardvark'd: 12 weeks with geeks", a documentary film (idea of Joel Spolsky) of the whole process to build copilot (the simplest way to use VNC trhought a reflector; full of features with a simple user interface, and a better name).

I just received my copy on Saturday 10 and I watched it the same afternoon. Interesting, even if you agree or not of what Joel usually writes about software development.

Anyway, I thought Fog Creek was bigger than I realized it is; and I was not expecting their concerns about risks in their first days (probably the same happened for Ximian, Fluendo and other related companies).

A keynote of Joel Spolsky could be very interesting indeed. Or have a short documentary of our community (we have the chance at GUADEC, Boston Summit, and so on).
