Oxide builds servers (as they should be)
Today we have a special treat: Bryan Cantrill, co-founder and CTO of Oxide Computer! You may know Bryan from his work on DTrace. He worked at Sun for many years, then Oracle, and finally Joyent before starting Oxide.
We dig deep into their company’s mission/principles/values, hear how it it all started with a VC’s blank check that turned out to be anything but, and learn how Oxide’s integrated approach to hardware & software sets them up to compete with the established players by building servers as they should be.

Great episode - per Brian I am now rewatching SV and it is indeed way denser with spot-on observations and satire than even I, a super fan, understood at the time - and I was vouching for it all when it aired, having lived it from 2008 thru 2016.
Dylan Beattie has a talk where he investigates the parallel reality where Be bought NeXT and got Steve Jobs.
Thank you for this recommendation – this was a really fun presentation!
It’s Omicron Persei 8, not 7. I thought of Lrrr every time I heard something about the new variant.
Jerod co-hosts The Changelog, crashes JS Party, and takes out the trash (his old code) once in awhile.
Good call! I thought something sounded off when Bryan said that, but I couldn’t quite put my finger on it…
