[11:48:15] <Bronz|work> Hi Apsup!
[11:48:23] <Apsup> hello
[12:07:36] <Apsup> It's so cold again. I don't like this.
[12:08:08] <Apsup> Maybe I'll be lazy person and go lie in bed, under warm covers and watch some anime or something.
[12:15:01] <Bronz|work> That sounds nice.

[14:16:16] <Bronz|work> Hi yoshokatana!
[14:16:23] <yoshokatana> guten morgan
[14:16:26] <yoshokatana> I'm sleepy today
[14:16:36] <yoshokatana> obama's speech last night went pretty late
[14:17:18] <Bronz|work> Why did he have a speech?
[14:17:30] <Bronz|work> All I know is that he charged Joe Biden with curing cancer?
[14:17:48] <yoshokatana> yeah
[14:17:52] <yoshokatana> it was the state of the union
[14:18:20] <Bronz|work> I've heard those words before... means like, "progress report", right?
[14:18:21] <yoshokatana> it's a kinda weird american tradition where the president gives a speech to congress each year telling them what he wants to do
[14:18:30] <Bronz|work> Sort of like a shareholder meeting?
[14:18:35] <yoshokatana> yeah pretty much
[14:18:45] <yoshokatana> it's sorta like a monday planning meeting in scrum terms :p
[14:19:04] <Bronz|work> I guess the weirdest part is that it's public.
[14:19:08] <yoshokatana> although for a large portion of american history it was just written
[14:19:12] <yoshokatana> lemme find an explainer
[14:20:03] <yoshokatana> here we go Bronz|work http://www.vox.com
[14:20:28] <yoshokatana> basically jefferson had stage fright so he stopped giving the speech and just wrote it down, then it stayed that way for a hundred years
[14:21:33] <yoshokatana> broadcasting it started with FDR, it looks like
[14:21:45] <yoshokatana> FDR was really into broadcasting :p
[14:22:15] <Bronz|work> So this year's, anything interesting?
[14:22:53] <yoshokatana> there were a few good jokes, a lot of bafflement at the republican rhetoric, and something about biden being in charge of curing cancer
[14:23:00] <yoshokatana> not sure what that was all about
[14:23:50] <yoshokatana> here's a cut-down 4 minute version http://www.vox.com
[14:24:28] <Bronz|work> Ok, cool.
[14:24:46] <yoshokatana> (by the by, the white house has gotten really good about live streaming their stuff over youtube. surprising for the government to actually be good at technology for once)
[20:20:42] <plugmyduck> yoshokatana: only good because youtube is pushing the idea of streaming and the government is just riding along
[20:23:48] <yoshokatana> yeah
[20:23:58] <yoshokatana> I like their live streaming implementation though
