Probably, but I bet they have (nearly) all gone home for the weekend at this point and are away from their computers 🙂 Present company excepted 🙂

I'm West Coast -- and my partner's away for the weekend so I'm almost certain to be online late into the night because I have nothing better to do...

Anyone doing the clojure game jam

theeternalpulse01:04:52

*lisp game jam, rather

rob.rodz.jr901:04:01

im gonna google it cuz i never heard of it

theeternalpulse02:04:54

So it's basically a self-motivated game jam (kind of like a hackathon) for 10 days. It encourages people (or groups of people) to flesh out a game jam in a lisp of their choosing.

@rob.rodz.jr9 there is a Clojure Meetup in Atlanta I used to attend when I lived there. https://www.meetup.com/Atl-Clj/

I was reading about that earlier. Hypothesis, outsource deals will always tend that way due to the perverse incentives inherent in them.

I'm more blown away that Hertz didn't put a stop to it earlier

$32m dollars is an awful lot of money for a website. Even an ecosystem of websites that will span globally for a global brand

Probably a bunch of system integration too.

phil63418:04:33

maybe some infrastructure

phil63418:04:26

one of the big issues I see with outsource deals is the long and ineffective feedback loops. So I'm not at all surprised it took so long for them to realise they had a disaster.

> I'm more blown away that Hertz didn't put a stop to it earlier According with the legal document, Hertz has no know-how also didn't put domain experts, mentioned as product owners, together within the development teams. Maybe this explain why took so long for them notice it.
