I picked up a book called The Shortest History of Germany recently, now that my DNA results have me 81% German. That’s another story. However, the first couple of chapters of the book talk about limes, foederati, Franks, Goths and more. An excellent background reading for #gmtgames Times of Crisis. Probably a few more of their games as history marches on...

Just to reiterate because it's not obvious from the excerpt, Smyte is some kind of anti-harrassment API that a lot of large platforms (like npm and zendesk) were using. Twitter acquired it as a solution to their own harrassment problem and immediately shut everyone's access off, even though many companies had multi-year contracts with them! 😂

"While Twitter had earlier told TechCrunch that it would be “winding down” Smyte’s business with existing clients, what that apparently meant was that it was going to announce the acquisition, then effectively shut off the lights over at Smyte and leave everyone in the lurch."

Tech and Beer

We are a community of tech professionals and enthusiasts that are inspired and passionate about technology in all forms and applications. We are focused on connecting the Orlando Tech community (soon to be Atlanta, Arlington and more!) through the the simplest form of communication…a conversation.

Our goal is to be interactive and allow technology, music and digital media enthusiasts to learn from other professionals, have questions answered in real-time, discover new tech, and hear stories that inspire. Orlando Tech and Beer is a platform for technology, creative and digital media professionals who wouldn’t normally cross paths to meet, collaborate, and learn about what their peers are doing in our own community.
