Welcome to Albatross Flavour. My name is Tony Green and I live and work in Sydney Australia. I spend a lot of my time working on UNIX, OSX and have become a productivity junkie (my drug of choice is, of course, GTD).
I talk about TV, movies, tech stuff, productivity hacking and random stuff that comes up. Many moons ago I was a UNIX systems administrator, now I work in a large operational team, trying to bring some elements of devops and GTD to the masses.
I am one of the founders of a Meet Up group, Getting Things Done : Sydney Style
I have a personal life too, but it's just that.
There are some people who don't know where Albatross Flavour comess from, so here's a little hint.
I came up with the name for the site while I was over in California for work last year. One of the many places in LA that I wanted to visit was the Hollywood Bowl, purely because of the legendary Python show performed there.
You can walk around the Bowl if there isn't a show on and I couldn't help myself, trying to imagine what it would have been like in 1980, watching these genius's at work. It was less than three years later that they broke up, seldom to perform together again, certainly not at this level in my opion.
This was my first ever exposure to Python, back in the late-80s and it stayed with me.
I can't help wonder how many other people have stood in the Bowl, while no one was watching, and just shouted "ALBATROSS", maybe I was the only one.
